The Club at ArrowCreek - The Legend

Reno, Nevada | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 7310 yards

The greater Reno golf region which stretches into popular tourist spots like Lake Tahoe is not dependent on big-name golf course architects like some golf destinations. But you can still find some stars. Take Arnold Palmer. Palmer designed The Legend Course at The Club at ArrowCreek - a two-course facility that overlooks downtown Reno. Legend throws postcard worthy nature and speeding greens at vacationing golfers.

The Legend at The Club at ArrowCreek brings Arnie's Army to Reno's golf and gambling mecca. Or at least, Arnold Palmer's golf course design touch. Palmer is the architect of Legend, one of two 18-hole showcase courses at The Club at ArrowCreek. Legend throws forced carries, striking native desert grasses and plush speedy greens at golfers without trying to beat them up quite as much as its sister course, The Challenge.

Palmer - the people's champion - seems to undertand how to put together a course for the people too. ArrowCreek Legend weaves around ravines, dry creeks and rocks. It can really give the golfer a sense of being away from it all - even though it's a quick drive to Reno's downtown casinos.

ArrowCreek Legend's finishing stretch tends to leave golfers talking. No. 17 is a short 294-yard par 4 that just screams at players to try and carry the big bunker in front of the green. Usually in score-deflating futility. Then, No, 18 throws a 442-yard par 4 that includes a big ravine carry at golfers.

Don't relax once you're on the green eihter. ArrowCreek Legend's 18 is the fastest green on the entire course. And ArrowCreek takes pride in its fast greens.
