About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 71
Length 7106 yards
Slope 127
Rating 73.1

The Resort at Redhawk is known to golf travelers around the globe and is one of the highlights of the grand golf destination that is the High Sierra. Located in the town of Sparks, next door to Reno, the Hills Course is one of two 18-hole runs at Redhawk and draws raves for its challenging play and incredible scenery.

Designed by three-time U.S. Open champion Hale Irwin, the Hills Course offers players a Scottish links-style layout that has small and dastardly greens, dramatic elevation changes, deep bunkering and immaculate views of one of the most scenic golf destinations in the United States.

While the Hills Course is a must play in the Reno area and will challenge long hitters with a 127 slope rating, Irwin added another touch to the resort. A unique, 18-hole putting green will have players competing, all the while improving their putting game, helping to make Redhawk and the Hills Course a standout in the High Sierra.

Such a fun course to play. It’s tough because of the constant elevation changes.

Needs some attention.

Played Lakes course. Disappointing. Greens were very inconsistent, had some rough patches in the fairways. Although bunkers were maintained the areas outside were not. Very sad that this once nice property looks very shabby. Needs some attention. Hope that when Troon takes over the conditions will improve.

Great Day!

Understaffed at Pro Shop. Bunkers had weeds and water. Loved seeing the antelope on Hole 11. Great day. Will definitely return.

Great day with nice views

Course was great and we had a great time. Staff got a little snobby when my buddy left two clubs on the range and when I called to ask if they had them their response was “ drive back to the starters shack and ask them

Hot spring afternoon round

The greens are in great shape even though slow. Weather was hot - 95 for a May 28th with some Tboxes needing some maintenance. Fairways were in good shape and tough starting to grow pretty well. Pace of play was great and felt no pressure in front or back of our group. Sunny - sunscreen day!

Bad Weather Day, Good Challenge

My wife and I played a scramble at this course for a local highschool baseball team fundraiser. Let me start by saying Red Hawk is one of the nicest tracks in the Reno Tahoe area. I have played most courses in the area and would say it's definitely worth checking out if you are a serious golfer or even a weekend warrior. Golf cart with GPS Tech is great. Just don't drive too close to greens! We had bad winds and some of the holes are tucked in on a hillside. They can really be tough on a bad weather day. Would love to get out and play the lakes course.

Nice day, cold and windy

Red Hawk is close to the house. But one of the reasons we haven't played it very much this summer is pace of play. Need to get some marshal's out there that kick people in the pants!!
