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.

Great course for the money

$50 on a Sunday was a great deal for this course. The signature hike is stunning. Nearly 5k feet elevation for 220yrd par 3. Played about 185yrds. Layout is great, plenty to think about without it being overbearing.

Bad course conditions

This is usually a beautiful course however this time we played the course was very rough and difficult to play with goose feces all over tee boxes and fairways. I hope they find a different another management company to keep this course in the shape it should be

Beautiful signature hole

I played this course for only the second time. The first time was at least 25 years ago when I was in a tournament through John Ascuaga’s Nugget Casino Golf offer. I never forgot it and wanted to play it again someday, and I finally did. Although I’m not too good a golfer, I really enjoyed it. I recommend hitting off of the men’s shorter tees rather than the pro tees.. it is a very challenging course, water, sand traps, creeks, you name it it’s got it. The greens were fairly fast, but some were a little bumpy where people didn’t fix their ball marks. I especially liked the signature par 3 hole, I think it was the 15th hole. The tee box is very high looking down on the island green with a sand trap in front. The water got me this time, but I’ll be back to try it again. Great view of the Reno/Sparks city from that tee.
Although I played rather poorly, (102), my birdie on a par 3 made my day.
So I would recommend this golf course to anybody who wants a challenging, beautiful, scenic golf course to play.

Customer Friendly

The course and over experience was ok however I had a foursome scheduled that day for a few of my clients so with that being said, I felt a little rushed through the field. Clients are there to have a good time and not feel someone is watching and rushing them through. The pace we were playing was average at most any other course.

Disappointed

Wasn’t too pleased with having to dodge sprinklers between shots for the first 9-10 holes of the course. Numerous ground crews working around the greens and the worry of possibly hitting them with any wayward shots approaching the greens.
