Beautiful Course

It was a perfect day. Beautiful weather and course was in excellent condition. I can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff, especially Trevor. He not only helped us with our tee time, but also made several recommendations on playing the course. He was the main reason that we will be back at Toiyabe. Let me also say again that the condition of the course was wonderful. It played well and had more than enough challenges for any golfer. Great day.

Slow play

I suggest that the marshals keep up on slow players more frequently. We had a foursome in front of us that had to let two foursomes through. They were learning the game and it made for very slow play for others on the course.

Great Course

A really great course in the Reno-Tahoe area,
demanding and rewarding, amazing layout.
Only down side was the greens. They were bumpy and beat up. The fairways have puddles of water on certain areas. Overall a great experience.

Perfect weather and beautiful scenery but challenging game, totally enjoyable.

Weather in the high 70’s with 10mph breeze. The design was interesting and challenging layout on the mountain hills. There were quite a few bunkers surrounding the greens that makes it more fun. Greens were not consistent, some fast but the others too slow. Also some greens needed more close attention. Fairways have quite a few wet spots due to overwatering. Some lakes need more chemicals and clean water flowing to eliminate strong ordor.
Seems like every body came out to play golf and the management must be over jealous to accommodate too many players. The pace.very slow but most players don’t seem to mind much and the players were very kind and courteous.
The pro shop staff were helpful and friendly and the starter, Darryl, was very friendly and made the players feel comfortable.
We will definitely return here when it wouldn’t be too busy, although we have to drive up 170 miles. We love to travel to play this game.
Again, thanks for making us possible to play at a such a super nice golf course.

Swamp Land

As with all Duncan Golf Management courses you need to bring mud clothes. The course is a mess. Standing water on virtually every hole. Plugged lies and mud balls all day long. What used to be a great track is now being destroyed by massive amounts of over watering. This s an everyday occurrence. Over watering is ruining everything. Including the greens. Such a shame.

bad greens

First time back playing this course after the VID. Course has a lot of standing water. Very disappointed in the greens. Not up to Toiyabe standards. Slow, bumpy and what appears to be damage from players not repairing ball marks. I love this course because of the greens, now I will have to reconsider.
