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.

Toiyabe...a must-play!

Excellent experience right from the start.
Staff was friendly, range balls like new. Played with 2 young guns who hit it a mile & were real helpful with course knowledge. Thanks Kevin & Sam! The course layout was amazing, had everything a golfer looks for in a round. Stellar conditions, greens were smooth & quick, water, elevation changes, giant trees(a few in the middle of the fairway). Wind kicked up on back 9, ouch!
Can’t wait to return to get some of my shots back! Overall top-notch day.

Beautiful mountain course

It was first time that we've played Toiyabe. It was a challenge when the afternoon winds came up. Definitely course knowledge would help save a few strokes since there were some hidden water and green speed was tricky if you were left on the wrong side of the hole. Looking forward to getting back.

Great layout, challenging but fair.

I have had the pleasure of playing this course before and after it became open to the public. The amount play the course now shows, but still is a great track. Lots of bunkers and water to make the golfer have to think about their next shot. Bunkers were wet and are a little unattended to. (I was only in one). Players seem to not know how to fix ball marks on the greens.

Beautiful course.

A great course. Beautiful sights, great lay out, amazing place to play. Good long par 5s, challenging par 3s. Greens run a tad fast and sands a little hard but fairways, T boxes, and facilities are tip top. Staff is great, members are friendly, and food is good too. Only problem is it can great really windy out there. But on a calm day, easily my favorite course.

Pace of play was “Glacial”

Had a tee time at 1150 and didn’t tee off until 1205. Made the turn at 210 and waited 15 minutes for 3 groups ahead of us. They proceeded to get drinks from the bev cart In the middle of the fairway causing even more delays. Got 14 holes in in 4.5 hours. Why does Duncan golf always overbook courses? Other than the pace of play the course was great!

Fun time playing almost

Course is a great looking course. Plenty of trees and water to make it challenging and fun. Greens were soft. I want to know why so many golfers dont fix their fricken ball marks. Get your lazy butt down there and fix 1 or so. IT AINT GOING TO KILL YOU. if your big enough to play then you're big enough to fix the damage you made. Another thing if the group ahead of you is 5 holes ahead and you have 6 groups behind you, let them pass. Go home, something.

Beautiful Course

Course is in great shape as long as you avoid the bunkers which are pretty bad. Challenging layout, good pace of play, friendly staff, and free range balls prior to the round. One of the best courses in the Reno area, they just need to put a little sand in the sand traps.
