Championship golf and mountain scenery at Somersett Golf & Country Club in Reno, Nevada

RENO, Nev. -- Somersett Golf & Country Club , which opened in 2005, is one of the Reno area's newest semi-private golf courses.

Somersett was designed by Tom Kite, Roy Bechtol and Randy Russell and can play as long as 7,252 yards from the championship tees, making it a great test for low-handicappers. The course plays on rolling, high-desert ground with tremendous Sierra-Nevada mountain views. Part of a new residential community, Somersett has especially large landing zones (up to 400 feet wide in many areas), and the greens are large and often well guarded with water and bunkers.

There are five sets of tees at Somersett, which plays as short as 5,200 yards, plus a "combo" set between the middle and middle-back sets. There are two sets of forward tees, which help make Somersett a great option for players of all abilities.

Brandon Tucker is the Managing Editor for Golf Advisor. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and over 500 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.

Located in the foothills overlooking Reno, Montreux Golf and Country Club is one of the area's finest upscale private courses. Opened in 1997, this Jack Nicklaus design weaves through both open high desert areas and tall pines, which makes some parts of the course susceptible to winds, while other holes are dead calm.
