Located justhalf-hour drive from both Lake Tahoe and Reno, Sunridge Golf Club features monster holes and mammoth lakes. The 669-yards par 5 11th - the longest hole in the scenic High Sierras region and then some - draws your attention as soon as you look at the scorecard. But the 26 acres of water on the golf course will probably provide more challenge and thrills.

There's also a hole with a 300-foot drop from the tee to the fairway (No. 14), a tiny par 3 19th bet-decider hole and a ton of driveable par 4s that almost beg for you to go for it. As a bonus, Sunridge Golf Club's green fees wow many vacationers used to Tahoe pricing.

I had some doubts going in because of some recent reviews concerning the course conditions, but I came away very pleased with almost everything about the course.

The greens are in very good shape and roll true. The fairways have some brown areas but the grass is still grass and not dirt. Considering this is the dry part of the year, I thought they were great.

The pace of play on this day were excellent. Never had to wait more than a minute to tee off or approach any green. Finished 18 holes in 3:30.

The water hazards are numerous, but only one is "in your face" and was a fun par 3. I had to pay attention to where the various ponds and creeks were located and shoot accordingly. The elevation gains and drops were interesting without being crazy. Very fun layout.

The only complaint concerns the bunkers. I only sampled one (in 18 holes!), but it was more like clay than sand. I wasn't able to hit a proper bunker shot with a sand wedge. Just punched-out with a hybrid. I did notice that at least some of the bunkers had real sand.

Still, overall it is really good. And at the prices they're charging I rate it as excellent. Will definitely return and would have no qualms in recommending it to friends.

Course was in reasonable condition and in calm conditions would be only moderately difficult. However, it was VERY WINDY for my round and this made play very difficult. Furthermore, it was somewhat difficult to know where to to go for the next hole on several occasions. Signage was poor to nonexistent. I do complement the course for the course play guide which provides excellent guidance on how to approach each hole. Also, the four staff members I interacted with were all extremely friendly. Still, given the winds and difficulty navigating the course at several junctures I would say this is at best a two star experience out of five.

Like the layout. Fairways didn’t get cut for days, some of the traps were not maintained, some of the tee boxes were not level well. Enjoyed the challenge the course offered

First time playing since new owners. The gas golf carts were a an added bonus. Needed a marshall. I went out as a single and immediately ran into a five some, that were not good golfers. They did let me play through and I played two holes before running into 2 foursomes and a twosome all on a pair five. I skipped a hole and got ahead of everyone and enjoyed the rest of the round. Course was in good shape for this time of year with lots of challenges.

Warm and Sunny Day with many players on the course.

Course is in great shape for winter and the variety of fairway layouts with changes in slopes make the course somewhat challenging. Hazards include water, mountainside, and brush.

The course is nice with the exception of several elevated tees on the back nine. The ground was too hard from cold weather and the ball bounced excessively!

This is one of my new favorite courses to play. The variety of Fairways and elevations provide a challenge even after you've learned the course. It can be a very challenging course with a lot of lost balls so be prepared

First time playing this course. Pay attention to course guide, particullarly distances to water. Greens roll better than they look. Back nine has some severe elevation holes and can be difficult to determine which club to use especially when the wind also has to be factored in. Fairways in decent shape and starting to go dormant. Some great views on the Carson Valley and surrounding mountains. Played the course in 2 1/2 hours by myself, playing thru one twosome. Would play it again
