LakeRidge Golf Course
LakeRidge Golf Course is a Robert Trent Jones course that has consistently been voted the "Best of Reno" ever since it first opened in 1969. Though the course sits less than five miles from downtown, the surrounding mountains provide a tucked-away feel. There are some stunning views from the elevated tees but don't get too distracted, this challenging course demands your attention. Mature trees tower over the fairways but they are thankfully wide enough to offer a little room for error. Water comes into play frequently and there are strategically placed bunkers lurking along the undulating greens. Accuracy is essential at LakeRidge Golf Course. The signature hole is the par-3 15th. This tee sits atop a rocky ridge that is perched 140 feet above Lake Stanley. You'll be playing downhill to an island green on this challenging but scenic hole.

Good Day For Golf
Conditions for early spring pretty good. Finally a nice day to be out, and only a 4 1/2 hr round!
The course is challenging. It is in excellent condition. Pace of play was my only complaint. No Marshall on the course.
First Time At LakeRidge GC
Great day at LakeRidge! Well maintained course with character! Great Deal through GolfNow.com!
Very nice layout. Greens were fine although a bit slow. One area that needs improvement is the traps, They were not well kept, and muddy. I would play here again tho.
This is a beautiful course and fun to play. It would be VERY difficult to get a better day on the links for the money. I would suggest they replace the driving range mats as they are in poor shape. The staff was very friendly and gave great input on how to play some of the holes since we had not played this course before. Great views of the valley and the 15th signature hole was everything it was billed as.
Worth the money
Very nice course, can’t beat desert golf. Very challenging holes with the slopes. Number 15 is a view to die for! I would play it again, but maybe not if the wind is blowing as hard!
One of Renos best courses.
I love playing there as often as time allows.
A bit soggy
Generally the course was in great shape, but was a bit soggy in places, odd for a drought stricken region.
The layout is classic RTJ, hard par, easy bogey.
Range was just ok, mats instead of grass.
Which brings us to pace of play. Played on a busy Friday. No ranger. Which meant 10-15 minute waits on every tee. The $75 price point brings with it an expectation of excellent customer experience. This course fell well short. There are better options in the region.
Will play again
Fairways and greens were in great shape. Putting was challenging. We would play here again.
I haven't played Lakeridge since early last year. I have played this course many times and enjoy the overall experience. Today was different as the water levels were very low and dried up in many areas. It gave the overall course experience a completely different feel. Still a great course to play and would recommend to any golfer.
Course was over crowded with 3 to 4 groups on each hole. Too many tee times were booked for this type of course making a 4 hour round into a 5 1/2 hour round.
Round took over 5 hours, waiting on every hole. Front 9 was the worst at 2hr 40min.
Where was the Marshall
Had to wait a minimum of 10 minutes at each tee. Marshall finally came to us about the 12 hole said he broke up a sixsome up ahead. Was not a enjoyable round.
Time for improvements to the cart paths
My favorite Reno course, but cart paths sorely need repaving!
Same old story with Lakeridge
I've been playing this course a few times a year for the past 5 years. I was excited to play on Saturday because of the rain we've been getting, and the condition of the course didn't disappoint. The grounds keepers are doing a great job. My frustration comes with the number of players pushed out. Tee time intervals are too close together. Couple that with a tournament, and congestion slows a round to over 5 1/2 hrs. There were several times where there were multiple groups waiting on a tee box with two others on the hole. The large amount of players takes its toll on the course. Many divots in the fairways that weren't filled, impact marks on greens that weren't fixed. I was happy overall with the course condition, but after fixing many divots, it became a chore. I understand that Lakeridge is one of the nicest courses in the area, but it's definitely not worth the price when you are faced with a very slow round and players who are too busy to fix the damage they inflict.
One of the best in Reno
I have played this course many times. Enjoyed it every time Lookinf forward to the next.
Really nice course, poor pavement and cart path maintenance
I've walked this course as a spectator a couple of times, played it for the first time on Sunday. Course and greens were in very good condition, but the parking lot and cart paths are in very poor condition. Potholes everywhere! Marshall let 3 groups go out as 2-somes instead of keeping 4-somes on schedule. We went out at 3:20p when our tee-time was at 2:39pm...
Paid 1/2 price as a hot deal. Would not pay full price. Pro shop staff were great!
fun course can be challenged
enjoyed playing this course. Staff is friendly courses in nice shape could be a little better but still in good condition.it's an older course with some scenic holes and great views.
