D'Andrea Golf Club near Reno, Nevada

D'Andrea Golf Club is a semi-private golf course in Sparks, Nevada, just minutes from downtown Reno.

The 18-hole golf course opened in 2000 and was designed by Keith Foster, who built a course that winds up and down desert hillsides. The front nine is still mostly void of real estate (though that should change in coming years), while the back nine plays mostly on lower ground and within existing residential properties.

D'Andrea Golf Club has a great deal of topographical variance, and holes play uphill and downhill, in some cases severely. This is reflected in the greens, which are fast and very sloping.

It's best to stay below the hole at all costs, which can be easier said than done. The par-71 course plays just less than 6,900 yards from the back tees, though there are four sets total. D'Andrea Golf Club features a driving range and practice area, as well as banquet and dining room facilities for larger groups.

Brandon Tucker is the Sr. Managing Editor for GolfPass and was the founding editor of Golf Advisor in 2014, he was the managing editor for Golf Channel Digital's Courses & Travel. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and nearly 600 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.
