Navigating the course is relatively straight forward. When approaching the green or putting it is a different story. Aim for the middle and go from there. If the flag is close to the edge and you go for it you will find yourself chipping up towards the hole. The greens were very fast and a very good test for anyone's putting touch. Overall it was a challenging but enjoyable day.

I really like this course, it offers a challenge for every player!not The fairways are generous, yet a premium is placed of position off the tee so accuracy it required Also, the greens are small and undulated so accurate iron play is a must. Additionally, if a green is missed an above average short game is requires to get up and down without giving away too many stokes! Also, after getting the ball on the green, putting becomes important as the green are undulated and reading them requires attention to the undulation and the slope of the course its-self! So par is a good score! Another feature is there are plenty of risk reward shots on the course, so strategy is key. Finally, I cannot say enough about the staff; they all go above and beyond, make the player feel "a part of" rather than a customer!! That alone keeps me going back!!!

The online deal was a very good deal considering the green fees the course typically charges for a pre noon tee time. The course needs some maintenance and additional care but otherwise it gets away with its boast as the oldest course in Reno, but is certainly not the greatest golf deal in or around Reno, Tahoe or Carson City.

Thanks Golf Now for the great and hassle free online deals.

I have learned to play on this course, and it has been a great experience. For the more advanced players it may not be challenging enough, but for a great time with friends, on a nice course it is a good deal.
