A glimpse at the top 20 courses in the state, as rated by reviewers on Golf Advisor throughout 2015, showcase mountain golf around Lake Tahoe, as well as other unique settings in Mesquite and courses in the Carson Valley near Reno. Nevada is in fact a year-round state for golf, and while high-end courses often dominate headlines, there are plenty of highly rated bargains if you look closer.

The top 20 of 2015, gathered using the overall and subcategory ratings that golfers like you submitted to Golf Advisor throughout the year, represent courses of all varieties throughout the state. The list is a who's who in golf course architecture. Nicklaus, Fazio, Dye, Jones Sr. and Jr. all have selections here.

Wow did Paiute pay you to do this! What a joke. Don't get me wrong the have nice courses but give me a break. Cascata is way nicer then all these courses and I would so that Rio Secco is nicer then sun and Snow.

Cascata didn't have enough reviews to qualify for 2015. Keep in mind most of these golfers are basing their ratings on what they paid to play the course.So by that measure, Paiute appears to be consistently over-delivering.
