Dayton Valley Golf Club is an Arnold Palmer Signature design that has been a PGA Tour Qualifier course since 1995, making it the longest standing site in the country. The course is surrounded by the Sierra Nevada Mountains and stretches across the valley below. The rolling, links-style layout features sculpted fairways and large, undulating greens. You may find yourself faced with a tough lie even after a good shot. It's a challenging test with plenty of water and strategically placed bunkers coming into play throughout. Careful shot placement is especially important on the water holes at Dayton Valley G.C. The most difficult hole on the golf course is the par-4 ninth. It's a lengthy dogleg left with water down along the entire left side of the fairway and short and right of the green. On your approach, hitting left of the green you'll find heavy rough or pot bunkers.

1st round after a month

I enjoyed the ride to the golf course. Appreciated the Pro greeting me and giving me the layout quickly and sending me out a little early to make a foursome. The starter was a little crabby guess he didn’t like changes made by the Pro. Course was in good shape and greens were easy to read and just right. 12 was closed for remodeling. The made a short 65 yard par 3 on it to get all 18. I’ll go back.

Nice Course, but a Bit Wet

Definitely a nice course, especially for the price, but appears to have a few drainage issues. The ground was swampy in a few places and the 12th hole was closed completely for renovations. Some bunkers were muddy with standing water which was not a result of rain. Mostly it was a course in good shape with typical Palmer water, bunkers and moguls. Staff was very friendly. I'd play here again my next time in Reno

Beautiful Day in Dayton!

With the hot days of summer upon us my expectations where not over the top , wow was I surprised at how great the greens and overall condition of the course was in! The staff are always friendly and welcoming and many food options in the bar/restaurant. Some fairways were a little troubled but that was the exception, avoid the bunkers not always well sanded but overall an interesting layout with challenging holes.
Definitely worth the drive and I will return , great golf value!

Best…

It’s Coming Back!

Dayton has always been one of my favorite local courses. While fairly expensive for regular play (like every other course in this area), it’s a fun and challenging track, And new ownership is obviously working hard to overcome the frugality of the prior owner.

Nice layout

This course has a nice layout. Be ready it is challenging. First hole is easy but after that be ready.
The course is fairly straightforward in front of you. There are some tricky lay up shots on par 5s. If it is windy it brings a whole other problem. It is definitely a must play.

Can never get 18 in (Pro Shop Sucks)

Never seem to be able to get 18 holes in. Either tournaments start after we go out, or like today, the pro shop decides to start people on the back nine, this time a group of five, and we get bogged down.

Always great greens

Overall experience on this day was very good. Greens were in great shape aside from #2. Fairways were generally good. Only complaint is the surrounds on some of the greens need attention especially #7
Bunkers need attention also.
