Ranch Course at Genoa Lakes Golf Club is a Johnny Miller co-design that's a short drive from its sister Lakes Course. The two courses will never be mistaken for each other though. Ranch Course is a pumped up course that's big in almost every way. There are over 300 feet of elevation changes and in excess of 100 bunkers around the course.

Miller and his design partner John Harbottle III put together a course that plays as bold and showy as Las Vegas. Only it's located in Carson Valley, halfway in-between the more nature resort towns of Reno and Lake Tahoe.

The bunkering can be severe on Genoa Lakes' Ranch Course and the mountain scenery can be even more striking. Even though it's not far from the Lakes Course, the Ranch Course is definitely set up in its own world.

Miller gives golfers a fighting chance though and often the latitude to decide their own fate. Ranch Course at Genoa Lakes is full of risk-reward holes. Most notable might be No. 18. This 561-yard par 5 gives you not one, but two shots (minimum) where you must decide how much lake you want to try and cut.

We had fun playing this course but due to the weather the shut the club houses down early and didn’t let us know so on the turn we were SOL with food and drinks. Overall the course was awesome and we had a fun time playing in all the elements on this beautiful course.

Poor Greens and bunkers

The Green here we're terrible. Very slow and uneven. Not playable for your more accomplished golfer or even weekend golfer for that matter. Pace of play was really backed up I had to call it quites after 14 holes. Bunkers were in bad shape and guy In the pro shop also made me pay $5 extra for range balls Since I booked a hot deal time. What kinda rule is that. Heard the cart guy tell another group where the range was and said range is free with your tee time. Overall poor poor conditions but staff and range is nice. Play else where if your looking for better course conditions.
