Rating 74.0
Dayton Valley Golf Club is an Arnold Palmer Signature design that has been a PGA Tour Qualifier course since 1995, making it the longest standing site in the country. The course is surrounded by the Sierra Nevada Mountains and stretches across the valley below. The rolling, links-style layout features sculpted fairways and large, undulating greens. You may find yourself faced with a tough lie even after a good shot. It's a challenging test with plenty of water and strategically placed bunkers coming into play throughout. Careful shot placement is especially important on the water holes at Dayton Valley G.C. The most difficult hole on the golf course is the par-4 ninth. It's a lengthy dogleg left with water down along the entire left side of the fairway and short and right of the green. On your approach, hitting left of the green you'll find heavy rough or pot bunkers.

difficult but fair

forget that I had to follow a tournament, the course is difficult but challenging and fair, no gimmicks. greens were fast but straight, easy to overthink. I have played here several times in the past, this was my first with a home owner who knew the course, that was a huge plus, it was like having a caddie. play it, 7,8,and 9 will make you think. thumbs up. If it helps the afraid.... I am a consistent 96 to 103 scorer. I shot a 93. and was amazed.

Tee times and large groups

Tee times too close together and excessively overbooked. $45 rate to play a 5 hr and 45 min round and pro shop attendant knew prior to accepting green fees how slow round of 3 golfers would be prior to teeing off. Very poor customer service and very dishonest! We will not be playing here again after playing this course for the past ten years! This course is indeed of new management! There is plenty of courses in area to play besides this course!

Reno Carson Golf - Dayton Valley Golf Club

Looking for uncharted courses in the Reno Sparks area, I came across the Dayton Valley Golf Club. The course is about 30 south of Reno on US 395. The golf shop manager was friendly and helpful, answering all the "newbie" questions. The carts are gas engine and do not have GPS, so bring your own. I found the course to be well maintained, with fast smooth greens. The rough is cut low, making it a little easier to find a mis-hit. The sand traps are a little neglected, so stay out if possible. Also, note that there is water on about 9 holes. The water containers were missing, so bring your own.

Overall, the course was a terrific value. I would play it again.

Great Course Layout.

The course is a good challenge. Staff courteous , Cart Staff needs to meet players when providing/ setting up a player for the round of golf. Ie. Course instructions, Pin placements, Amenities etc.

Dayton Geese

Pace and price was wonderful. Never did see a beverage cart. The "sand" bunkers should all be replaced with grass bunkers. There wasn't any sand anywhere on the course that I found. Every green should come with a goose dropping rake or rule. Scraping the goose droppings off a ball isn't funny the 9th or 10th time. I'll play again if I'm ever in the area.

Great course.

This is a great course to play especially for the cost. The only problem we had the day we golfed was they had booked four tournaments that morning. It was poor planning and really slowed the round down. Other than that, I highly recommend this golf course.

Built to Challenge

Beautiful course only surpassed by majestic high desert scenery. Plan to loose balls if your not careful. Strong hitters should not play from the white tees. Blue/White combo tee play is recommended.
