Nestled at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Toiyabe Golf Club (formerly known as Thunder Canyon Country Club and Lightning "W" Ranch Golf Course.) has a picturesque landscape of shimmering lakes, meandering streams, and towering pines. This course has a traditional layout that features contoured fairways and fast, generous greens. There are nearly 50 bunkers strategically placed throughout and water comes into play on 14 holes. Elevated tees provide spectacular views of Mt. Rose and Slide Mountain. The golf course is challenging but still player-friendly with seven sets of tees. In addition to the course, Toiyabe Golf Club also offers practice facilities that include chipping and sand practice areas along with an expansive putting green.

Course Pace

I loved this course until we got backed up on the 11th hole with everyone waiting for a group of 4 who were walking the course. We decided to call it a day.

The course - tee boxes, fairways and greens were in great shape for April1. Our foursome played the round in 4 hours. It was breezy, but the temps were great!

Fantastic Views

First time at this beautiful course tucked into the mountains. Staff was great and efficient. Course was coming out of winter, but greens were good. Would have been nice to have transportation to driving range, Out of carts. Course very playable.

It was early and the snow had just melted off. A little rough but will be excellent as the weather warms.
