Northwest Nevada

Panoramic vistas of the Sierra Nevada, clean mountain air, warm summer afternoons and sweeping green fairways as far as the eye can see. Sound too good to be true? Not in the Reno-Tahoe Territory, a region filled with golf courses ranging from the historically quaint to the truly spectacular.

From the magnificent, city-adjacent PGA tour course at Montrêux to the outstanding Genoa Lakes Golf Club in the Carson Valley to the one-and-only Edgewood at South Lake Tahoe, the golf courses of northwestern Nevada are a scenic dream come true. At just about any of the two dozen golf courses within an easy hour drive of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, guests are treated to views as memorable as the course. And it doesn’t stop there. Whatever your preference – a classic, links-style course or a true desert course experience, a quick nine holes or a leisurely 18, a family-friendly game or a first-class, deliciously pampered round – northwestern Nevada has a course for you. The fact is, the region is ripe with memorable golfing opportunities. So whether you’ve got just enough time for a quick weekend golf getaway or you’re planning an extended, multi-course tour, you won’t do better than northwestern Nevada.

For family and friends who may be less than enthusiastic about a vacation on the links, rest assured that this corner of the world has something for everyone. Endless hiking, mountain biking, climbing, sightseeing, wildlife watching and more await in the majestic Sierra Nevada, while water lovers will delight at the region’s alpine lakes and rivers. The truly stunning Lake Tahoe is as incredible to see as it is to enter, perfect for water sports like paddling and skiing and less arduous activities like sunbathing and wading. Downtown Reno’s Whitewater Park is another thrilling way to spend some time in the water, a spot so refreshing it should come blended or on the rocks with a salt rim and miniature umbrellas.
