The Lakes Course at the Resort at Red Hawk is a Robert Trent Jones masterpiece that has helped vault Reno and the High Sierra into the upper echelon of West Coast golf destinations. Named the best daily fee golf experience by readers of the <em>Reno-Gazette Journal</em>, the Hills Course is a challenge not to be missed.

Playing to more than 7,100 yards from the tips, the Lakes Course is a haven for big hitters who love dangerous risk-reward opportunities, as well as for players who thrive on accuracy in their golf game. More than 100 bunkers challenge golfers, as do a plethora of trees and water hazards that both add to the aesthetics of the course, and the difficulty.

Along with its sister, the Hills Course, the Lakes Course has helped the Resort at Red Hawk become synonymous with stellar golf action and excellent service.

Cart path only

Was very disappointed when arriving at first tee. No note when securing tee time that it was cart path only. I understand the need after rain etc but the course was dry and fairways brown because if winter time. I have physical challenges and would not have booked this prepaid tee time. I even inquired about using 90 degree rule. But still a hard “No” Carts are electronically controlled so 10 feet off path they stop. Very sad they didn’t feel the need to help with an ADA needs golfer. Done with RedHawk.

Winter conditions

We didn't have to wait for any of the holes. However, there was no starter (It was very cold in the morning) so I suspect that might have been the issue.

The greens were still hard from an overnight freeze and some are in poor condition.

That is not the fault of the course though. That is the fault of golfers NOT fixing their pitch marks!

I am going to play Redhawk again, but in the spring!

Great course. Ridiculous cart policy.

Carts were forbidden on the fairways which slows play and makes it very difficult to judge distances. The grass was dry and dormant, so is the policy related to weather conditions? Carts have GPS which is great, but if you can't drive the cart to your ball, what purpose does it serve? Driving range is mats only and they charge $10 for a "large" bucket which was laughable.

Walked

Driving range could be better, the course was good

I had a female coyote walk 5 holes with me while looking in the marsh for food. It was wonderful memory to have the coyote walk so close but just far enough as I walked the course. Just 20 yards away most of the time.

Great overall experience

Really enjoyed the course. Box, fairway, greens were all very well kept, even the bunkers were soft. There was frost in the morning which caused an hour delay in tee times, the only bad thing I could say about the experience, but it gave me an opportunity on their range which was good. And there were a couple of marshals I saw carting around encourage everyone to play at a quicker pace when possible. I suggest getting on their practice green for a bit it played pretty close to what I experienced on the course. They were fast for me on that day, I'm assuming because of the frost.

a hot summer

Red Hawk is in incredible shape. If you've played a bit locally, you know this summer has been crazy hot and windy with the added condition of very smoky. By September, the grass is hot, tired and usually worn out. How they have kept it in such great shape here is a credit to their staff. I plan on playing a bunch more; friendly folks and a great course.

Greens

The greens are some of , if not the largest in the area. You can be on the green and still have very long putt. So go after the pins.
The green a little slow, but ran real true. Good job greens crew.

Enjoyable Day

Playing with my brother & son on a Tuesday and we enjoyed ourselves on the Lakes course. We found it a little easier than the Hills but not as scenic. The greens were in good shape with some contour but not scary or ridiculously fast. Sand traps were more playable than the courses I play in Indiana (actually have some decent sand in them). The relative absence of trees makes wayward drives more forgiving , but there are plenty of fairway traps, ponds , and weeds to make you pay attention on your tee shots. The GPS on the carts is really helpful, with yardages to traps and to carry hazards. I have enjoyed every round I’ve played at Red Hawk, either Hills or Lake. Rates are reasonable, more so with Hot Deals or afternoon tee times. Practice area could be nicer: driving range chewed up and practice green has too much slope to get a good idea of the speed.
