Lakes Course at Genoa Lakes Golf Club
The Genoa Lakes Golf Club's Lakes Course brings water into Lake Tahoe-Reno golf. It's found on 14 of the 18 hole on the Lakes Course and it's not always nice tame water of staid old country clubs either. Sometimes you'll be shooting over near swamps with tall gnarly grasses poking out of them. That's the Lakes Course.
It's one of the more natural settings in an area known for its nature settings. You'll see cows along the border of the course - and birds will come flying up that you probably can't identify.
Lakes Course is a Peter Jacobsen and John Harbottle III design with rolling fairways, some tight shot openings and good views. It's 7,359 yards of golf with the Carson River and wetlands riding shotgun. It's located in Carson Valley, an often forgotten town, that's right inbetween the big gaming spots of Reno and Lake Tahoe. That makes Genoa Lakes Golf Club a pretty easy course to get to from most of the popular areas in the High Sierras.

Beautiful layout. Greens in great shape. Some Fairways were a bit rough. Staff was very friendly especially the cart lady and food staff. The mosquitoes came out with a vengeance it the late afternoon. Bring mosquito repellent ior you will need a blood transfusion after. No kidding. Otherwise it was great
The staff was exceptional. I'm not sure what else to say. My experience there was second to none. I really enjoyed myself. Thanks for everything.
First time playing here
The clubhouse is very nice.The staff was very friendly. The weather was perfect and the pace of play was three and one half hours on a Sunday afternoon! The course is not overly difficult. The layout is straight foward. Nothing too tricky, The course itself still needs more grass on the tee boxes and fairways. The greens were in good shape, ,but rolling a little slow at this time.Sand traps were a little wet on the first 5 or 6 holes but they all had plenty of sand. I would play this course again, but wait until a little later in the year.
Great course to play! The only negative was the flags do not tell you where the holes are located on the green.
Genoa Lake course
Staffs are very friendly and flexible so I was able to pull in my tee time for about 20 minutes.
The layout and views are awesome, the conditions weren’t the best but I chose to play it in April, I’m sure it’s a lot better in the summer, so not the fault of the course or GK. Wind made it ridiculously tough but again that’s part of the spring season. Would love to come back in peak season
Great early season conditions
The greens had recently been sanded and early season lumpy, but the grass was great. Fairways were still coming in in places. Tee boxes could have been better, they needed flattening and less watering and more grass.
