The Hills Course at Red Hawk
The Resort at Redhawk is known to golf travelers around the globe and is one of the highlights of the grand golf destination that is the High Sierra. Located in the town of Sparks, next door to Reno, the Hills Course is one of two 18-hole runs at Redhawk and draws raves for its challenging play and incredible scenery.
Designed by three-time U.S. Open champion Hale Irwin, the Hills Course offers players a Scottish links-style layout that has small and dastardly greens, dramatic elevation changes, deep bunkering and immaculate views of one of the most scenic golf destinations in the United States.
While the Hills Course is a must play in the Reno area and will challenge long hitters with a 127 slope rating, Irwin added another touch to the resort. A unique, 18-hole putting green will have players competing, all the while improving their putting game, helping to make Redhawk and the Hills Course a standout in the High Sierra.

With 60 degrees in February, it was a great day for a round.
I hav not played the Hills course a lot since it opened -- this was my fourth round -- but I am enjoying it more and more each time.
There's great variety on this course, with elevation changes, undulating fairways and greens, and more. From the Blue tees, there are par-4s as short as 282 yards and as long as 456.
I learn more about this course each time I play it and it keeps getting better. I'll look forward to coming back.
While the weather played a factor in the number of people on the course, we played a longer-than-necessary round as the course allowed groups of two, two and three ahead of us to join into two fivesomes.

This is a fine course, which can play very long from the back tees, but is relatively shorter from the senior tees.
I enjoy playing this course and recommend it all golfers.
Course was in good shape. Had a great day. In the sun pretty much all day on a somewhat chilly day so made it feel warm all day. Couple of funny things about the course, Not a down fall but funny. First thing make sure to write down your score if you want it. Luckily I saw it but didn’t write it down, as your driving back the gps/scorecard resets so lost my score. You see the club house once. If you hungry bring snacks or grab something from the cart girl. That’s the only time food is an option. Course is long somewhat challenging, definitely have to be straight. Some holes are forgiving some are not.
Cart Path Only
Take a nice layout at smart gos carts and mix in some stubbornness and yiu get a 5 hr round for no reason. Cart path only golf on a dry track .. ridiculous
Very Nice Course
Great course. Greens were in fantastic shape, very fast but playable. Fairways, rough and tee boxes in very good shape. Sand traps were not bad but could use a little work. There are a couple of holes where you have some carries over water or penalty areas and some where you need some course knowledge which I was lucky, one person in my group plays it quite often. Some views are quite stunning. You won’t be sorry playing this course.
Wide open fairways
Over all we had a very nice day, fairways are fast, greens are even faster making it a challenge.
My wife and I celebrated our 22nd Anniversary and loved the course and of course the beautiful scenery.
We cant wait to bring friends and family back for a round.
Thank you, Tony
I didn't play, I had to cancel. I have used Tee Off prior to this and liked the fact that it had a no charge cancellation fee. I tried to cancel yesterday due to some scheduling problems was told since I'm "not a member" and that the booking was made directly to the course. The agent tried to call the course no answer and this was at 4pm! With this new policy I will not use Tee Off again.
Such a fun course to play. It’s tough because of the constant elevation changes.
Needs some attention.
Played Lakes course. Disappointing. Greens were very inconsistent, had some rough patches in the fairways. Although bunkers were maintained the areas outside were not. Very sad that this once nice property looks very shabby. Needs some attention. Hope that when Troon takes over the conditions will improve.
