Golf Instruction Academy to Open at Reflection Bay Golf Club at Lake Las Vegas

A new golf instruction academy is being formed at the award-winning Reflection Bay Golf Club at Lake Las Vegas, complete with professional golf instruction, state-of-the-art technology and a new building to house the program.

The academy will be located on the former Falls golf course at Lake Las Vegas, with completion slated for summer 2019. When complete, the academy will offer one, two and three-day golf school options for juniors and adults and will be open to beginner and more advanced players.  

“The golf academy will further enhance the status of Reflection Bay Golf Club as one of the premier practice facilities in the western United States,” said Eric Dutt, director of golf operations for Reflection Bay Golf Club. “The academy will be an unparalleled offering that will attract locals and out of towners who want to relocate to a resort location where they can enjoy golf year-round.”  

Dutt said the academy will be the only facility in Southern Nevada of its kind and will offer golfers an on-site venue that gives them access to learn the sport first-hand from professional players.

Former PGA golfers Craig Barlow and Jeff Gallagher were appointed this year as golf instructors at Reflection Bay. Barlow, a PGA Tour professional who has made 170 cuts on the PGA Tour and competed in eight major tournaments including the British Open and five U.S. Opens, is the club’s director of instruction. Former professional golfer Jeff Gallagher has played on the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.

Once open, the academy will offer a variety of programs, including VIP programs for Lake Las Vegas residents as well as programs for high school teams and junior golf development.

Bob Vokey Launches New HandGround Program on V…

Bob Vokey Launches New HandGround Program on Vokey.com

Master Craftsman Bob Vokey is now offering the tour grinding experience to all golfers through the introduction of the new HandGround program on Vokey.com.

For golfers seeking tour-level customizations such as additional heel relief, a squared up leading edge, or Bob’s popular tour grind, the HandGround program is the answer.

For the last year, Bob has personally trained two grinders on all of the performance and profile adjustments that have resulted from his more than two decades of work with the world’s best players.

Bob’s passion for building relationships with individual players is the essence of the Vokey brand. Voke takes the time to listen to a player’s wants and, more importantly, their needs, when hitting wedge shots. He then takes this information back to the tour truck and starts grinding heads. The process can be lengthy, but when it is done right, it is worth the wait.

Bob will oversee the entire HandGround process – located in a new workspace adjacent to the Titleist Tour Department, inside the Titleist Golf Club headquarters in Carlsbad, Calif. – and, from time to time, will also grind HandGround orders himself.

QUOTING BOB VOKEY: “This takes me back to my roots – one player at a time, one wedge at a time, crafting the sole to the player’s exact specifications.”

HANDGROUND OPTIONS: In selecting the HandGround option – currently available on all Vokey SM7 Raw models, the preferred finish of tour players worldwide – golfers will be able to choose from a variety of performance and profile adjustments (two adjustments maximum).

• Performance adjustments: As course conditions change, tour players make adjustments to their wedges to improve turf interaction by grinding material off the sole of the wedge. These grinds allow the player to change the wedge’s playing characteristics based on their unique swing type and course conditions resulting in finely tuned performance.

Performance adjustments include:
– Pre-Worn Leading Edge
– Smooth Grind Lines
– Heel Relief
– Trailing Edge Relief

• Profile adjustments: Having the right head shape inspires confidence. Voke works with tour players to dial-in the head shape that fits each player’s eye. Profile adjustments allow the golfer to design a confidence-inspiring head shape by grinding material off the profile.

Profile adjustments include:
– Semi-Square Leading Edge
– Thin Top Line
– Tour Grind (smooths all profile lines & slightly reduces profile size)

For detailed explanations of each performance and profile adjustment, click here: https://www.vokey.com/nav/handground.aspx

HANDGROUND SETS: With F, K and L Grind wedges, golfers also have the option to make specific grind selections:


– F Grind: Make it an S Grind. For example, golfers that prefer their 52.12 F gap wedge to have a touch more versatility greenside may enjoy this option.
– K Grind: Make it a J Grind (Heel & trailing edge relief)
– L Grind: Make it an A Grind (Smooth the grind lines)

AVAILABILITY: HandGround wedges are now available on all SM7 Raw models through Vokey.com. SM7 Raw wedges – including BV Wings grip and 10-character stamping – start at $195. There is an additional $75 charge for HandGround services.
