Sunridge Golf Club

Carson City, Nevada | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 6914 yards

Think it's hard to find a good cheap golf course with grown up design thrills in the shadow of South Lake Tahoe and Reno? Think again. Sunridge Golf Club in Carson Valley gives golfers 26 acres of water to deal with and unforgettable holes. How about a 669-yard par 5 for starters? Green fees are among the most affordable in the area.

If you fancy yourself as a John Daly bomber or Aquaman, Sunridge Golf Club could be the golf course for you. There are monster holes and mammoth lakes on this very reasonable Carson Valley golf course that's an easy half-hour drive from both Lake Tahoe and Reno. The 669-yards par 5 11th - the longest hole in the scenic High Sierras region and then some - draws your attention as soon as you look at the scorecard. But the 26 acres of water on the golf course will probably provide more challenge and thrills.

There's also a hole with a 300-foot drop from the tee to the fairway (No. 14), a tiny par 3 19th bet-decider hole and a ton of driveable par 4s that almost beg for you to go for it. As a bonus, Sunridge Golf Club's green fees wow many vacationers used to Tahoe pricing.

    Got a great deal on golf now. Hole 14 still under maintenance (12/7/15) but 19 is a nice little pitch and putt. The greens are fun with slopes and can easily turn into a 3 or 4 putt. My fav. thing was the course guide book that explains each holes layout. Be warned that there is a lot of water and alot of valley brushes along some of the sides and hills so bring a box; not just a sleave. Great course to bring friends and bet on closest to the pin or longest drive holes.

    I have played this course three times, once in 2000 (was really impressed)once in 2008 and last 08/03/2014. The last two were terrible. Each time I play this course I am impressed with the possibilities for this course. The last two trips the carts could not even climb the hills on the back 9. Love pushing my golf cart up and hill and then try to hit a tee shot. There were NO maintenance people to be seen on the last trip. They had damage to one of the holes due to a flash flood over the 4th of July this year. None of the greens had been mowed for a least 1 day. The bunkers were not raked and some had weeds 2 to 3 foot high growing in them. The final complaint is that this course, even though it is located in high desert, had no drinking water on the course except for two vending machines, one of which was out of order. I would NOT RECOMMEND this course to anyone (well maybe my worst enemy). The course visually appears to be in receivership. I don't know this as a fact it is just the appearance. Save your money, there are several courses in the area that are much better.
