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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Silver Oak is in good shape, with recent rains the fairways were lush, rough dense and juicy. Gave the course more defense than it normally has.<br/> The greens were not as firm or fast, but rolled true. Unfortunately for ALL golf courses, people do not fix their pitch marks, spit sunflower seeds on the putting surface, and neglect to kick the sand when leaving bunkers - tracking it onto the greens. I wish etiquette was a part of the checkin process.

We played the back nine first, and the smell from the water was terrible. As we moved along, it improved and disappeared. The back nine was a lot of fun and challenging. We experienced a thunder storm that lasted for one or two holes. What a hoot! The greens were rather bumpy in places, but overall, a great day of golf.

It's interesting that the course look relatively flat but when you start the front nine you are climbing a mountain with some really tough approach shots and some great views of the Carson valley .back nine has a totally different lay out .more flat but challenging .had a good time and would play again.
