Elevated tees provide spectacular views of Mt. Rose and Slide Mountain. The golf course is challenging but still player-friendly with seven sets of tees.

Windy Day

Mother nature made it rough with 40 mph winds. The course is a great value.It would be nice if they would add some yardage markers.Hole diagrams on the scorecard would also help

Nice course to play

Had a chance to play this course while in town for work. Not crowded, pace of play was great. The course is in great shape and manicured greens. Will defiantly play this course again when in town.
Watch out for the wind coming down from the mountain, the wind will move your ball, so be prepared.

Toiyabe Golf Club

Beautiful course just north of Carson City which I had not played before. Lots of water & sand makes it a very difficult course for a 1st visit. The course was in excellent condition & the greens are very quick. We had a good time & will make a return visit.

2nd time at Toyoibe

Signed up as a twosome, but had two other guys added to make us a foursome. Would have been ok, but they were better than us, and did not want to play at our pace of play. They decided they had had enough by #9, and gave us an excuse to take off ahead of us. We are not good golfers, but not absolutely terrible either. Felt rushed the first nine. Second nine was some of the best golf I’ve ever played!
We do not blame the course for pairing us up, just wish there was a way when making the reservation to add a skill level, so the course may use the info to better match up players. Also, had to wait for a cart, as none were available at out reserved tee time.
The course as a whole was in good shape. To bad players don’t fix ball marks on the greens. All in all however, had a good time, and will absolutely play here again.
