Founded in 1917, Washoe Golf Course is the oldest golfing facility in Reno. The layout has small greens and tree-lined fairways, but the fairways are wide and flat making them fairly forgiving. There are water hazards and bunkers strategically placed throughout. The mature landscape is carefully maintained with an elaborate sprinkler system that ensures that the course is green and ready for play all year round. Washoe Golf Course also has PGA Professionals on staff to help with individual or group instruction and extensive practice facilities that include a generous putting green, driving range, and a chipping area with practice bunker.

Good but not Necessarily Great

As I have mentioned in my recent previous reviews, this a a good but not a great deal. This was perhaps one of the premiere golf courses of Reno in years past. Now it is just OK, mainly because it has not been maintained as well as it can be expected of this prime property.

Surprisingly good

The course is in much better condition than recent years. Good fairways, the greens are in great shape just a little inconsistent on the slow side. Fun to play.

Greens need to be rolled, very bumpy! Course was in great shape. Mowers need to mow tee boxes in the early mornings not in the afternoon when your teeing off.

ANOTHER FUN RIDE

Course was in Good shape...The wind was rough and hitting into the greens was challenging! The layout is always tricky..nice wide fairways to hit into, only to have to hit the small and quick greens! Well worth the fees and will definitely give it a go again!

Kick back Reno

Very nice playable Muni. Very close to peppermill. Very small greens which places premium accuracy on approach shots. Very walkable course if feeling like exercise

yesterdays afternoon pace

Overall, the round was fine after getting in front of the groups ahead of us for the back nine. In the front, one group had 5 players playing, which we know is incorrect. Then, a massive group of 9 people “trying” to play, being mulligans, and holding up everyone behind. I’m all for people learning how to play and having fun but you have to be considerate and show golf etiquette. Going forward, washoe GC needs to regulate groups more accurately and speed pace of play.

Nice course

Course is challenging and fun. I’m glad I got a power cart, as there are some hills. Fairways were pretty wide which I like. Some of the greens were a little rough, but it looks like they might have recently aerated the greens. Lots of sand traps too! This was the first time I played here as I was visiting from out of town. I will play it again next time I come to Reno.

WGC

I really liked the fairways because they were nice and green, please keep them this way, don't let them get away from you. The greens were very fast and were air-rated. once they grow back in I'm hoping they are really nice. We would like to see just a few ball washers out there if possible. Don't know if this is covid related that there are none. See ya soon.

Classic Washoe

Still a lot of fun. Greens are going to need a little more help but it’s still early in the season.
