Par 71
Length 6426
Slope 131
Rating 70.1
Type Public
The centerpiece of the Silver Oak residential community in Northwest Carson City and just a 25-minute drive from the Reno, Silver Oak Golf Course is part of what makes the High Sierra a world-class golf destination. Playing to 6,504 yards and with five sets of tees, Silver Oaks is a course where both a scratch golfer and a high-handicapper can find a challenge. An intriguing layout that highlights the nearby Sierra Foothills, Silver Oaks will test a players game while offering scenic beauty. With a very respectable slope rating of 130, players will need to bring their game to score low. But even better than the interesting design and scenic qualities is the green fees. You'll rarely need to fork over more than $30 to play this respected 18-hole championship golf course that includes top-of-line practice facilities.

course was ok

For the money the course was OK but I would not pay full-price to play here. Some of the greens were marginal and the rest were kind of bumpy. It's worth trying out here or there maybe, but is not on my list of top courses to play.

Course has an interesting layout

Silver Oak was a great value. It's 60% cowboy movie set and 40% nice residential golf. The fairways and greens were in great condition, while the cart paths were more like stagecoach trails. The front nine has a lot of elevation changes, and the back nine has several water hazards to negotiate. Overall, a fun challenging round.

Course was in good condition. There were some dry areas due to the drought. No beverage/snack cart service. Greens held well.

Odd but interesting

Haven't played this course in a few years and remembered you REALLY need to hit it in the fairway. It is really like two separate courses, one very mountainous and pretty scenery and the back very resort like following a housing development around the nine with lots of water carry. Enjoy playing it a couple of times a season.

Best in Carson City

A fun round. Not overly challenging, but not boring either. I prefer a little longer course but the views make up for it. I think it's the best course in Carson and will play it on a regular basis.

Good time

THere was a five some that we caught up with but was still moving well. Only had a threesome so it was expected to happen. The greens were in great shape. Long as people repaired their ball marks. Fairways we're in good shape. The ruff was cut the day before or so and there was excess grass around. Other than that the course is great.

Tough little course

Course was in decent shape for the hot conditions we have had this summer. Very challenging and with all Northern Nevada courses, you need to play early or deal with the wind.

fun course

we always have a good time at Silver Oak. It is a fun course. Every hole is different. There are a lot of short par 4's which give you a chance to score. The greens are interesting
