Designed by legendary golfer and course architect Arnold Palmer, the Legend Course's lush greens and fairways beautifully interlace with the surrounding desert to create an idyllic golfing experience set in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Called "Reno's Best Kept Secret" by LasVegasGolf.com, the scenic landscape provides panoramic views and challenging course play for all skill levels. Golfers will face a healthy balance of par 3s, 4s, and 5s that present accuracy-testing obstacles such as sandy bunkers, tranquil water hazards, thick desert brush, avian hecklers, and rolling terrain.

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.
