The Lakes Course at Red Hawk
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.

Great weather, nice course, but ...
I've played Red Hawk a ton in the 20+ years it's been open. It's a really good track and a good test of golf.
I'll also say that Red Hawk does a great job with pace of play at both courses. There's days when you show up and see a packed parking lot and feel a five-hour round coming on but it's almost always four or just over, in my experience.
This round showed a growing problem with courses and GolfNow/TeeOff, however -- the lack of the course accurately conveying conditions through the booking website.
We showed up and learned it was cart path-only. Understandable but there was one member of our group who was not physically in a good place for that.
Whether cart path only or temporary greens or carts have to be back in by a certain time, it's problematic enough that I won't be renewing my GolfPass membership. GolfNow/TeeOff blames the courses and the courses blame the website. Have had enough.
The Lakes course is the go to for this area. Good course, challenging and the amenities are excellent. Comfortable carts and smooth cart paths throughout the course. The greens for this particular round were in excellent shape for this time of year.
did actually play the Lakes course. Over booked the course so had to play the Hills. It was not a bad track, .Greens were extremely fast and bumpy with lots of break.
Played Red Hawk lakes course twice. The course layout is great and it was in outstanding condition. Greens were fast, but true and fairways were great.
Staff was very friendly and helpful!
Will be back to play the Hills course soon!
Same pin positions and no cart girl
Played 2 days in a row they had same pin position, there was no cart girl, and the round took 5 hours
Also many trespassers on course people jogging, walking, riding bikes, talking and kids on motorized bikes.
On the 7th hole there were kids on bikes talking on cel phones trespassing talking while we were trying to tee off
On the 11th hole there were kids on motorized bikes causing problems with excessive noise
Also no cart girls and they never told us when checking in
Slow play poor greens
Played back to back days 5 hour rounds each time
No beverage cart on 10/4/22
Also my bud hit on a par 4 guy was 275 away and Mr Yamamoto yelled at us said to be patient
over booked and slow play
It was a Monday, I had a Tee time of 2:30 and didnt get to play the last three holes because it got dark! Waaay overbooked.. play was ridiculously slow. Players behind us were getting imatant and hit in to our group several times. Nothing we could do! We were backed up and waiting at every Tee box for several minuetes each hole. Sad because it is a nice course- just way over booked!
Red Hawk Lakes
Beautiful course with lots of wild birds. 1st green has issues but all of the others rolled great. Fairways are very well maintained. Most of the Bunkers are hard as cement ( I know because I found probably a dozen of them) and it takes real finesse to control distance out of them. Overall we had a very enjoyable round of golf.
Pleasant day on a well priced course
Just a well maintained course that is a good test for the average golfer and beginners as well staff were very good and friendly good value and good course
Geese everywhere.Too much. Get rid of them
Geese or not an endangered species.
The golf course is completely invaded by geese everywhere.
The fairways and the greens are suffering because of the geese. They crap everywhere and it’s almost impossible to take your shot in certain areas of the golf course because of the goose crap.
Time to eliminate the overpopulation of geese that are destroying our local golf courses.
From now on all the courses that I play that are invaded by geese are going to get a negative review until something is done to correct this completely invasive species.
