LakeRidge Golf Course is a Robert Trent Jones course that has consistently been voted the "Best of Reno" ever since it first opened in 1969. Though the course sits less than five miles from downtown, the surrounding mountains provide a tucked-away feel. There are some stunning views from the elevated tees but don't get too distracted, this challenging course demands your attention. Mature trees tower over the fairways but they are thankfully wide enough to offer a little room for error. Water comes into play frequently and there are strategically placed bunkers lurking along the undulating greens. Accuracy is essential at LakeRidge Golf Course. The signature hole is the par-3 15th. This tee sits atop a rocky ridge that is perched 140 feet above Lake Stanley. You'll be playing downhill to an island green on this challenging but scenic hole.

Winter

Very little snow left from a heavy snowstorm a few weeks ago. Course was in very good condition, considering freezing, snowy weather. Greens were still partially frozen, making them ultra fast. Tee boxes were frozen, making tee insertion very difficult. Overall, it played great and no big issues.

A little mushy

Fun course with a lot of elevation shots and some tough pin placements. Greens were mushy, we could see foot prints if we walked too hard, or leaned over to fix a ball mark and now have a foot sized mark…

Slow pace

Tough to get 18 holes in if you go off at 1:00 or so with pace of play. We got in 15 just barely before dark. Waited on every hole. Carts had to be headed back by 4:45. So have to get out by noon on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.or you won’t finish.

Fun Course - Enjoy the Scenery Overlooking the Atlantis and Peppermill Casinos!

We play this course regularly during our visits up to Reno. Starter got us out a few minutes early - much appreciated!
FYI - there is a large population of Canadian geese on the course, so beware of their droppings!
Also, carts are required to be returned right at sunset, as it gets dark fast on the course. One of the groups behind us asked to play the last hole with us, which made for a somewhat frenzied finish.

LakeRidge Golf Outing 2021-10-29

Got out about 25 minutes earlier than scheduled thanks to an observant starter. Unfortunately, the round took 5 hours to play due to the slow play of the foursome in front of us. At least the weather was beautiful and our threesome enjoyed each other's company.

Terrible management

The Marshall is lazy and doesn’t do his job. Watched three groups skip 9 to pass us and clog up hole 15. We did not stop at the turn. By the time we got home it was still light enough out to play, and he forced us to stop three holes short of finishing and proceeded to yell at my uncle and not offer up any semblance of anything to make up for him wanting to get off early. Shame. Never been more angry at a Marshall. He wasted one of the best rounds of my life because he was too lazy to do his job another 30 minutes. Light allowed for it. He just is terrible at his job and needs to be replaced with someone with the energy to finish a days work with a smile. Simply embarrassing that such a good course has an employee like that bringing them down.

It’s complicated!

Beautiful golf course; mature trees, well-kept grass, great views of the Truckee Meadows. Gas powered carts that put electric carts to shame in terms of power around the course. Fast, efficient check in, competent, friendly starter. GPS would be a valuable resource, especially for first time or infrequent players. But, we had to wait at least 5 minutes to tee off on nearly every hole, leading to a 5-hour round of golf on a weekday afternoon.
