Golf Classic, Culinary Feast on tap Nov. 1-3

Golf, cuisine and community giving will take center stage at the second annual 2018 Audi Henderson Las Vegas Golf Classic slated for Nov. 1-3 at Reflection Bay Golf Club at Lake Las Vegas. This marks the second large tournament hosted by Reflection Bay Golf Club in the past six months, following the American Junior Golf Association tournament that was held in May.

The Audi Henderson Las Vegas Golf Classic is a two-part event featuring a double shotgun scramble golf tournament on Nov. 2 and Culinary Feast on Nov. 3. The feast will showcase more than 15 local restaurants, wineries and breweries along with live entertainment by the Spazmatics and a silent auction. Guests can take part in the golf tournament, the Culinary Feast or both. For complete event details and ticket information visit lakelasvegasclassic.com.

All of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Keep Memory Alive and the Ogden Family Foundation. In 2017, the tournament raised almost $30,000 for Keep Memory Alive and the Leukemia &Lymphoma Society of Southern Nevada.

“Reflection Bay is uniquely suited to host a wide variety of tournaments because the course lends itself to accommodate multiple skill levels,” said Eric Dutt, manager of operations for Reflection Bay Golf Club. “We push the envelope to provide our players with the best resort-style experience possible.”

Dutt said players at the tournament will be among the first to enjoy fixed food and beverage stations recently opened on the 5th and 14th tees. Food at the Stations will be provided by Lake Las Vegas executive chef Scott Commings, season 12 winner of Gordon Ramsay’s “Hell’s Kitchen.”

“We are introducing the stations to elevate our level of service and keep our fingers on the pulse of new practices and unparalleled guest service,” said Dutt, a 35-year industry veteran.

Dutt is one of the most sought-after experts in the Las Vegas golf industry with work that includes consulting for the Tiger Woods Foundation National Charity among overseeing a host of tournaments at Rio Secco golf course in Las Vegas. He also held roles as Tournament Operations Manager for PGA Tour, LPGA Tour and PGA Senior tour events in Las Vegas.

A welcome party to kick off the weekend will be held for registered golfers and sponsors on Nov. 1 at the Reflection Bay clubhouse. The 32,000-square-foot venue can accommodate up to 300 people with both indoor and outdoor space to host weddings, holiday and corporate parties and special events.

On Nov. 2, golfers can choose a 7:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. tee time and compete against more than 50 other teams in a scramble format tournament. The Culinary Feast takes place on Nov. 3 and will feature cuisine from restaurants including TAO, LAVO, Zenshin, Beauty &Essex, Hash House A Go Go, Marssa Steak &Sushi, STK Steak, Texas de Brazil Steakhouse, Ethel M Chocolates, Capital Grille, Foundation Room, Shake Shack and Reflection Bay Golf Club.

Built in 1998, Reflection Bay Golf Club was designed by 18-time major winner Jack Nicklaus. The course is designated as a prestigious Jack Nicklaus Signature Design and is one of only three Nicklaus-designed courses in Southern Nevada. Reflection Bay was host to the Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge from 1998 to 2007, showcasing the talents of such champions as Bubba Watson, Fred Couples, John Daly and Phil Mickelson.
