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 golf beware

Paid for a 18 hole tee time there was a frost delay of an hour and unable to play back 9.
The 19th hole wasn’t open for frost delay
Pace of play was very good.

Great Course but no Cart Girl

Great course but the play was slow and no cart girl the entire round. Tee time was 2:36 and it was hot.
The staff was excellent, just hot and thirsty. Glad I brought a couple bottles of water.

Island Hole Pars

Course was in excellent shape. Pace of play was slow until signature hole, after that it picked up and finishing went well.
Tough part is the driving range is closed - making it difficult to warm up and get swing prepared properly. Recommend driving nets either before first hole or at old driving range.
