“Nicest "Drive" in Reno”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

One of several golf courses close to downtown Reno. While each has its own personality, Lakeridge has the famous 15th island hole. Panoramic views of the entire valley and a 300 foot drop from tee box to green onto the island. A unique experience. Lakeridge has changed ownership and upgraded its facilites, golf carts and the course itself. A must play for any golfer visiting or living in Reno.

“A very playable course”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

This course gives just enough thrills to keep up interest game after game and not so much trouble that you wish you'd have gone somewhere else. Pebble Beach its not and thank God for that. Some of the holes are fantastic with the 15th really memorable. Good prices and close to downtown. My wife and I love to play here.

“The 15th is "the bomb"”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Seriously, an island green 200 yards long and a vertical drop of about 200 yards. Awesome. The rest of the course layout was very playable and remember that you are at altitude so use one less club than you think you need.

“Famous hole, average course”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

This course didn't seem as well maintained as some other reviews state. Several fairways were hard and had large brown spots and the Canada geese were EVERYwhere and so was their droppings. Gross. It really takes away from the enjoyment of the game when you have to constantly watch where you walk and hope the ball doesn't land in it. Most tee boxes were covered with it. I didn't get an answer to my question about whether or not this was seasonal and bad timing on my part but September isn't the best month for the course even though the weather was fabulous! It could be a much pretty course but needs a little tlc. The famous hole #15 was, however, well kept and the view was fantastic! I even made the shot over the water easily from the ladies tee. I live in a resort community in Texas with 4 courses around me so my expectations of how a course should look are pretty high. Goose poop aside, Lakeridge was still a challenging course with several holes side by side allowing errant golf balls to stray into other fairways or greens. I would like to play again without geese present. Heard lots about marmots running around the course but we saw none. Liked the gps on the carts. Pro shop staff very friendly.
