Type Resort
The Lakes Course at the Resort at Red Hawk is a Robert Trent Jones masterpiece that has helped vault Reno and the High Sierra into the upper echelon of West Coast golf destinations. Named the best daily fee golf experience by readers of the Reno-Gazette Journal, the Hills Course is a challenge not to be missed. Playing to more than 7,100 yards from the tips, the Lakes Course is a haven for big hitters who love dangerous risk-reward opportunities, as well as for players who thrive on accuracy in their golf game. More than 100 bunkers challenge golfers, as do a plethora of trees and water hazards that both add to the aesthetics of the course, and the difficulty. Along with its sister, the Hills Course, the Lakes Course has helped the Resort at Red Hawk become synonymous with stellar golf action and excellent service.

Great course

I like the Lakes course better than the Hills course. It was windy when we played and marginal shots were lost balls. Glad to see a sign up on Vista to let you know the turn off to the course is coming.

confusing

This course was confusing going from hole to hole. Also returning the golf cart was also confusing. There was no good direction from going to hole to hole. Also no good direction returning the golf cart

Great value

First time playing the course. After playing Vegas where it was hot and dry, it was a relief playing in cooler temps. Course was in great condition. Greens were faster then they looked and felt. Pace of play was good. Finished the round in 3 hrs 40 mins on a Friday. Great value for the price. I would play this course again when in Reno.

Enjoyed a nice day at the lakes Course

The course was in very good condition but not great condition. Staff was pleasant but not overly engaged as the bag drop was not staffed when we arrived or when we departed. The food and drinks in the clubhouse were very good and reasonably priced. Overall, I would play this course again when visiting the Reno area. Pace of play was an issue and we called the pro shop to ask for a ranger to "suggest" a faster pace of play from the group(s) in front of us.

Excellent course. Great value for the quality

This course played really well. The fairways were manicured excellent and a nice drive was rewarded with extra distance. Greens were pretty good. Rolled pretty true. Was not a crowded course and the price was very reasonable for this quality. I highly recommend.

Fun course to test your higher elevation length.

Best defense at course is wind.

Red Hawk - Fun to Play - Aggravating GPS

Enjoyed the Lakes course. Enjoyed the Hills a bit more. New GPS system has boundaries programmed it. When you go into the rough even a short distance, you receive this irritating message. Over the course of 18 holes, it definitely becomes an irritant. The routing and rules need to be reconfigured.

Red Hawk Lakes Ciurse

The course was in good shape, given the poor weather we have had recently. The greens rolled true and at a good speed.

Restaurant was excellent, with a friendly staff member who greeted us quickly.

This course was in great shape

It was March in Reno, so the weather was cold and windy, but the course was in great shape. The older man working in the morning was not overly friendly, but when I returned to the clubhouse in the afternoon the gentleman working was more than helpful and courteous.

shared course

lovely and somewhat challenging course. last time we played it was great, this time there were some obstacles, dogs running loose, children playing in the sand, and, lots of dog droppings on the greens! When did this lovely course turn into a public park? will try again this spring, hoping more attention can be given to making this lovely course all that it can be!

Hills and fun

While it can get chilly playing golf in Reno, NV. In March, it can be fun too. I was fortunate enough to get paired up with a threesome of buddies. Besides enjoying some terrific views of the snow capped mountains, I laughed at a lot of funny commentary too. The Hills Course is like the name implies, up and down with plenty of elevation changes. Not a walking course.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The ProShop staff helped with course explanation and described some of the hole locations. The starter was friendly and accommodating. I brought my own “stuff” so I didn’t need the cart bar, but it looked well stocked.

I enjoyed the trip and am looking forward to the next time.
