Wolf Run Golf Club is one of south Reno's most popular courses. The course is situated amid the Sierra Foothills, tumbling across a picturesque desert landscape sprinkled with native flora. The layout has many risk-reward opportunities and the par-3 holes are especially fun. The hilly terrain is as scenic as it is challenging, providing some tricky uneven lies and there is a meandering creek that slithers along the fairways. Though it's wide open, the golf course requires a bit of accuracy and some good course management. The elevated tees offer some spectacular views as well as some intimidating approaches to the fast, undulating greens. In addition to the golf course, Wolf Run also has a practice facility with a driving range and putting and chipping greens. You can also get your clubs repaired on site.

Good course greens are in great condition

Course is great, incredible value. Greens are in great shape and course overall is in good shape.
The range balls look like they’ve been run through a snowblower. Don’t bother hitting balls on the range. Will play again. Fun course.

Great course that has gone downhill

Course conditions have worsened on this course in the last couple of years. I attribute it mostly to abuse by users. But the staff could improve some of the rough, bare areas that exist throughout the course. It has a great layout and was previously in very nice shape.

Play conservative

Great course if you have a consistent game. Course layout is tight at times. Tee boxes are a little uneven. Overall nice playing

Good round

I have always loved Wolf Run. This is the course where I learned to play golf. Favorite course in Reno. However, this is poorest condition I have ever seen it in. The greens were good though, so it is still super playable. These last 2 years have been really tough for golf courses, so I definitely understand.. I just hope the great conditions return next season. Still love this place and will continue to play it. Would recommend.

Cold weather

Frost delay - just communicate better to your customers

I booked a 7:15am time because I had to drag the wife to the airport in the afternoon and wanted to ensure I had plenty of time to get that done. It was really cold that night and there was frost all over the course, so we had a frost delay. I **totally** get that - can't let players and carts out on the course under those conditions. What wasn't good, however, was the lack of communication to the golfers regarding start times, etc. Everyone found out we could begin when the starter moved his golf cart that was blocking the path to the #1 tee and then drove to the tee and waited for golfers to come up. No announcement or anything. Weird. Pro shop staff was kind of "meh, I don't care" about the whole thing too. Anyway, I love the course. Really fun to play.

Good,but pace of play

I enjoyed the course,it was in good shape.The tee boxes and greens were nice, some of the fairways need to be attended to better, some were dry and some places were very wet, but overall good. Will play again soon.
A little pricey.
I thought you should be able to drive your cart out in to the parking lot to load up. All other courses I have played let you do that. It makes it so much easier/convenient especially for the disabled/elderly.
Pace of play was terrible, you need a ranger out there occasionally to check.
THANK YOU!

Great Corse

Great track with excellent fairway and green conditions. Tee boxes were a bit uneven/not level in spots and over saturated. Otherwise a course which offers a good challenge. Very enjoyable day of golf.
