I've played here many times and here are my issues: GPS carts that will not let you near the green or your ball unless you're in the fairway, they won't let you in the parking lot.... super annoying. The greens have some really strange tilts and subtle angles, putting here is difficult. The fairways need water, for a course that's surrounded by "lakes" the grass is brown, our local muni has nicer grass. Sand, sand, sand I hit more bunkers here than any course anywhere. Way to many bunkers. Finally the pricing. This is a $50 course tops, there are scads of $35 &$45 courses in northern California that are way nicer.

One of the best places that I've played. Course was GREAT, only problem was my ball didn't go where I wanted too all the time but that was my problem. Layout was great, enjoyable and fun to play. Bunkers were in good condition and I got out of tem every time better than my Key West Fl course. I hope I get to play this course again before having to return to Florida. Tee boxes were like walking on a sponge and all of them were clean. Greens were in great shape, Fairways were also in great condition.

I am handicapped and the carts do not accommodate people with foot issues. The course fairways were terrible. They were basically dirt!! Then to make matters worse they overbooked and the staff did not manage the players! We had to wait 20 minutes on each hole!

Red Hawk treated my brother and me very well. Pro Shop guys were nice, starter was very friendly, cart girl was great, and the course conditions were solid. Driving range has mats. Most holes on the Lakes course are pretty forgiving. Wide fairways with plenty of room. However, if you miss the fairways you're in trouble. The course won't wear you out, but you still have to make good shots to score well. I'd definitely recommend this course.

Except for a rather odd encounter with the bag boy who was new I guess, it was a great experience. Got a little tired of the golf cart barking at me all the time. The GPS didn't like me being in the rough all the time. Got a little old.

Great course. Every tee box felt good to the eye with a driver in hand which is nice. The only course I've played in Reno area where the greens bite on any type of shot. They're really soft! Greens also putted really smoothly. Having short par 3's even on black tees is really nice (one long par 3 was good too). Some challenging rough in spots although you really need to miss to get into it. My GPS wasn't working to start round and Marshall drove in and got me a new cart. I played solo on a Monday and finished in roughly 3 1/2 hours. Great layout and views. I highly recommend to play here mid week. It was a blast and a steal for the hot deal at $37!! My new favorite course in Reno.

Decided to try a course in the Reno area as I travel there several times a year. It is obvious from the attitude of the employees that the course is primarily for members. We teed off on time however by the second hole we were waiting on every shot. An employee came up and told us they had a tournament an he was going to try to speed them up to keep the round under 5 hours. Just barely made that. The beverage cart showed up as we were coming up the 9th fairway. Told her we would stop at the turn. Stopped at the snack bar and no one was there. After about 5 minutes a woman told us she would be right there. She then proceeds to serve drinks at the bar and chat with the customers while we waited. After another 5 minutes we left. The beverage cart then showed up as we were going up the 18th fairway. Not an enjoyable round. Next trip we will try another course.

Booked a tee time for myself and my cousin. We teed off at 11:40 am and had to wait on EVERY hole. We were informed that there was a tournament that morning, and that there were no problems. WRONG!! The tournament took a lot longer than expected and the course was overbooked. It was 100 degrees and we waited every shot. The foursome in front of us were playing tees that they had NO business playing. The marshal told us that things were getting better and that play was speeding up. WRONG AGAIN!!! When we made the turn, we encountered two foursomes waiting to tee off. This was a little after THREE HOURS!!! We expressed our disappointment to the marshal and requested a refund of half the green fees. He spoke to the pro shop and we were informed that we would have to speak to Golf Now about the refund. Golf Now called the pro shop and the rep at Golf Now credited my account with half of the green free charges. They were great! In my opinion, the management of this course acted in a greedy way by overbooking on the day of a tournament. It will be a very long time before I ever play there again!

Took 4 hours 45 minutes to play.

Have a lot of buildings to navigate to get from parking lot, to pro shop, to restaurants, to driving range,.

Never did see a putting green.

Driving range was mats only, this in June. Very poor set up.

Starter acted stressed out to say the least. Once I got on course I saw why. A tournament in front of us (went off at 9:20), followed by a twosome, solo, foursome, and another twosome. Waited on every hole. Saw a Marshal once, about #12, said the last tourney group was a couple holes behind but thought he had them going. Picked up a little.

No workers around to check in cart, help with clubs nothing. Seemed very unorganized.
