Ranked one of the best courses to play in Nevada by Golfweek, Dayton Valley Golf Club's par 3, 4, and 5 course captivates golfers of all ball-whacking potency by placing four sets of tees at each hole. Nestled amid the gently undulating rise of the eastern Sierra Nevada and dotted with tree shadows, the Arnold Palmer-designed course challenges orb strikers with shot-encumbering obstacles such as sprawling bunkers, severe slopes, and pressure from treehouse homeowners' associations. Limber up latent clubs on the driving range and putting green before tackling the championship golf course, which hosts a PGA Tour qualifier each October and boasts a USGA course rating of 63.8–74. Arms recharge at the 15,000-square-foot clubhouse, which features a large bar-and-grill area and outdoor patio.

Surrounded by towering foothills and nestled next to the waterways of scenic Carson Valley, Sunridge Golf Club’s 18-hole, par 72 course stretches across 6,914 yards of picturesque vistas and challenging course play. The layout demands confident swings from the first tee box—the beginning of a 575-yard par 5—where errant shots will find an aquatic abyss to the right of the fairway. Tight fairways and intervening creeks supply the bulk of the challenge throughout the round, requiring golfers to summon sound course management, deft club selection, and one flutist versed in charming pond monsters. A relatively difficult course, Sunridge’s five tee options and photo-op-worthy topography make for an enjoyable round for golfers of all abilities. Players can warm up their swings prior to the round at the driving range, which offers both grass and synthetic-turf hitting surfaces, allowing players to choose whether to infuriate Mother Earth by tearing divots into her cherished dirt or by favoring her inorganic doppelganger.
