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.

Winter conditions

Greens were recently plugged, looks like most of them have some kind of mold/patchy. Cart path only. Fairways are in solid shape for winter. Cruised through the front 9 in less than 2 hours then it was clogged up on the back, 5 some playing in front of us. Would be nice if courses dropped the rates some for the funky greens

Cart path only.

Courses should let us know that its cart path only before we book a tee time. Pace of play was so slow because of this. It would have been faster to walk and play with a pull cart.

Shotgun

Didn't know it was going to be shotgun. All teed off at 10:30. No horn to start play and it caused a huge backlog. Players behind us were rude and did not know golf etiquette. When on the tee box they would roll on up while you're swinging and talking. I'm not great but it did mess my round up. Could have broke 80 if it wasn't for those clowns.

Okayest

It was fine, it was Red Hawk I like the course. The weather looked like rain all day and never did. It was a little bit cold ,but okay. Little bit cloudy, but okay. It was really calm no wind, no one behind or infront of us. It's golf, it's November, it"s okay.

The overall course was in good shape!

The pin placements made it very difficult to score. The greens were fast, which I liked. But combining difficult pin placements with fast greens made the round unenjoyable. I missed several four to five foot downhill putts that ended up 10 to 12 feet past the hole. I have a 6.9 index, so I'm not a hack!

Red Hawk - Lakes Course

Ccourse was in near flawless condition this morning. Grass was excellent both on the fairways and greens. Even the beverage cart was good. The only negative was that the group behind played a ball right into us. That's not the course's fault. However, the course marshall came around and we mentioned it. It didn't happen again. Kudos to Red Hawk personnel.

Capitalizing on Covid

This is a decent course despite the fact that the staff are almost always rude. Their latest move during the pandemic is to force single players to share a cart with other singles that they don't know (they won't tell you until you're at the starter shack). They did just buy all new carts, which are nice (except for the lack of club/ball cleaner on cart), and they're obviously trying to recoup their investment quickly.
Overall, it's a fine place to play, unless you're a single golfer with concerns about Covid transmission.
