Type Resort
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.

Nice layout with very good conditions

Coming from Florida with more than our share of flat layouts it was a welcome change to get some ups & downs for a change. Now that could also apply to my golf game but, in this case, the reference is to the well manicured and somewhat challenging Hills course. Pace of play was excellent and there were plenty of workers in plain site keeping the course in shape. Can't speak for the locals but recommend for anyone looking for a fun course with excellent conditions.

Great Course

The hills course is in the best shape its been in in years. Even the sand traps are in good shape. I still dislike the matted range.

Course in need of maintenance

Red hawk runs a local television commercial that states they are in the best shape of any course in the area. Maybe they should go play the course and see what shape it is really in, not bad but not great. Weeds in a lot of the bunkers that the sand is hard pan, dead tee boxes and bumpy greens. I know it is early in the year but course could use some help before it's in great shape.

Greens are in good shape

Really my only issue on the hills is no snack bar, cart person didn’t have any food except for candy.

They should also provide range balls at the price you pay. Other than that the pace was okay and it was in good shape

Course lay out to natural terrain

This is not my first time playing this course. It has a challenging layout that goes with the natural terrain of the area. Course was in good shape considering the amount of rain in the past month.

Beautiful Day in the Hills

Playing in Reno for the first time. It was a Monday, but we had no one in front of us or behind. Course was in pretty good shape, a layout with some elevation changes, variety of holes to keep your interest. It was not too punitive, always somewhere to put your tee shot, but it was not wide open by any means. Plenty of bunkers, both for the drive and the approach shot. Greens were a little slow, but there was enough slope to the greens to demand your attention. We only lost two balls in our twosome and those were some very wayward shots, one OB and one in the weeds. My only complaint is the golf cart restrictions, where the cart would not go all the way to the far edge of the rough? Huh? Who makes up these rules? But I would happily play here again.
