Wolf Run Golf Club is one of south Reno's most popular courses. The course is situated amid the Sierra Foothills, tumbling across a picturesque desert landscape sprinkled with native flora. The layout has many risk-reward opportunities and the par-3 holes are especially fun. The hilly terrain is as scenic as it is challenging, providing some tricky uneven lies and there is a meandering creek that slithers along the fairways. Though it's wide open, the golf course requires a bit of accuracy and some good course management. The elevated tees offer some spectacular views as well as some intimidating approaches to the fast, undulating greens. In addition to the golf course, Wolf Run also has a practice facility with a driving range and putting and chipping greens. You can also get your clubs repaired on site.

Greens were very fast with lots of break. 3 puts will be frequent. White tees were just right and fairways in good condition. Sand traps are not fluffy and are a little hard.

Course is in good shape. Greens are unbelievably fast. If you want to go out and have a nice round while three putting every green, come here. They roll true, just impossible to stop a ball at some of the pin locations they've chosen. Probably really fun if you're under a 6 handicap.

I love all the marmots running around on the course. Beautiful views and the course is well kept. Putting on these greens is challenging and they are wickedly fast. I’m horrible at golf, so they may not be challenging to a better player.

They had 2 tournaments which they forget to mention when booking a tee time. We’re only allowed to go to a certain hole and then had to wait until the tournaments got at least 5 holes ahead. I ended up leaving after 6 holes. From 1 - 6 holes took about 2 hours because of so many people. Not sure I would come back

I really enjoyed playing this course! It was a cold, windy day evan a little snow, but I still enjoyed it. I had played Red Hawk Lakes the day before and really wanted to go back and play the Hills but was told by a buddy to check out Wolf Run. I did not regret it! Red Hawk might have been in slightly better shape, but I loved the elevation changes and the challenges that Wolf Run presented. The Par 3s are long, but fun! Watch out for the course mascots.....the marmots! They're everywhere, but they don't scream at you!

I played this round in mid March 2017. Recent rains and heavy snow in the mountains mad emergency think I was in for a bust; not a chance. thanks to the terrific work of the course superintendent and staff, the course was in amazing shape (given the weather conditions). I have played here before ad enjoyed the course. This time, not too many players to content with, so I played 18 in 3.5 hours. Last time it took over 5.

I really like the elevation changes of tee boxes and greens, and the staff are doing a great job of clearing out the old shrubs, looking very nice.

The staff were helpful and friendly. no complaints for $34 with cart at 2pm. Looking forward to next time.

I was able to walk on at 2pm. The pro shop and restaurant were clean and well maintained. The putting and chipping greens were terrific. Because the weather was great, the pace of play was poor; 18 holes - 5.5 hrs.

The course layout is great and usually in good condition, though it suffered due to the drought. They seem to not care about the tee box conditions and seem to always put the tee area where the ground has clearly been neglected and beat to shreds. Last three times I've golfed, the rounds have exceeded 5 hours. Hey cram as many people in as they can and never have a marshal out to at least put an effort into keeping a decent pace of play for the players. Waitin 7-8 minutes per shot is ridiculous and needs to be addressed.
