Washoe Golf Course
Founded in 1917, Washoe Golf Course is the oldest golfing facility in Reno. The layout has small greens and tree-lined fairways, but the fairways are wide and flat making them fairly forgiving. There are water hazards and bunkers strategically placed throughout. The mature landscape is carefully maintained with an elaborate sprinkler system that ensures that the course is green and ready for play all year round. Washoe Golf Course also has PGA Professionals on staff to help with individual or group instruction and extensive practice facilities that include a generous putting green, driving range, and a chipping area with practice bunker.

Very Long for Women
One reason I very seldom play Washoe is it is very long for Women. It’s about 400-500 yards longer than most of the courses I play here and in Florida. I don’t know why they don’t get with the times. For that reason I would not recommend it to any women I know.
The greens were punched and the debris were not removed. The greens were in terrible condition and it was not informed. It was waste of money playing there
Great city course
Wonderful course for target practice with a little obstacle to keep it interesting.
The course is in mixed condition; most tees, fairways, and greens in good shape, but large areas of ground under repair on the back nine and some greens are mottled in appearance. Carts are a must on this rolling landscape, but cart paths need repair, especially to asphalt. Some transitions from green to next tee could be better marked.
An OK day
The city needs to put some real money into this course. Nothing has changed over the years. Small driving range, barren spots all over the course. They allow fivesomes which should never happen, and the group ahead at times had 2 people playing out of one bag. The course needs marshals.
The fires in California presented a foggy like atmosphere where tracking the ball was a little difficult. course was over watered in some areas and the ball plugged on a couple of approaches. greens in great shape and overall the staff doing a good job as well as the restaurant and bar. We had a great day even though it was hot and smoke filled.
Fun course. The greens need a lot of work, the bathroom on the course needs to be remodeled.
The course is not very pretty.
The course is deceiving. It is a muni course and the front nine flat and accessible. Then the 10th hole, next to the parking lot is just a harbinger of the rolling back nine and its hidden difficulties. My only real complaint was that it was very wet from watering overnight and that several of my shots plugged on landing, making it difficult to find. The only other problem was smoke from a forest fire north of Reno about 50 miles on the last few holes. Of course, there was nothing that could be done about that. The pace of play was amazing. We finished in less than 3.5 hours! Definitely going to play there again.
Greens were real bumpy. Really an issue with 3’ putts and under. Fairways were muddy. Enjoyed the back 9 more. Wasn’t horrible but wouldn’t be my first choice to go back to
EARLY GOLF ROUND
T-time at 07:10 meant excellent weather and good course condition. Management is watering heavily and made for a little slow putting. Staff was great and the appropriate protections were in place. Lots of carts so everyone is in their own cart. A great day on the course and now back to yard work! Yuck!
