LakeRidge Golf Course is a Robert Trent Jones course that has consistently been voted the "Best of Reno" ever since it first opened in 1969. Though the course sits less than five miles from downtown, the surrounding mountains provide a tucked-away feel. There are some stunning views from the elevated tees but don't get too distracted, this challenging course demands your attention. Mature trees tower over the fairways but they are thankfully wide enough to offer a little room for error. Water comes into play frequently and there are strategically placed bunkers lurking along the undulating greens. Accuracy is essential at LakeRidge Golf Course. The signature hole is the par-3 15th. This tee sits atop a rocky ridge that is perched 140 feet above Lake Stanley. You'll be playing downhill to an island green on this challenging but scenic hole.

This course on Its own would be 4 stars. Unfortunately they have the worst practice range facility. They have crappy curled up mats. The range faces directly into the morning sun. Oh by the way its an irons only range. They also ran mowers ,trimmers, and blowers around the course most of the day.

This is a beautiful course and fun to play. It would be VERY difficult to get a better day on the links for the money. I would suggest they replace the driving range mats as they are in poor shape. The staff was very friendly and gave great input on how to play some of the holes since we had not played this course before. Great views of the valley and the 15th signature hole was everything it was billed as.

Generally the course was in great shape, but was a bit soggy in places, odd for a drought stricken region.

The layout is classic RTJ, hard par, easy bogey.

Range was just ok, mats instead of grass.

Which brings us to pace of play. Played on a busy Friday. No ranger. Which meant 10-15 minute waits on every tee. The $75 price point brings with it an expectation of excellent customer experience. This course fell well short. There are better options in the region.

I haven't played Lakeridge since early last year. I have played this course many times and enjoy the overall experience. Today was different as the water levels were very low and dried up in many areas. It gave the overall course experience a completely different feel. Still a great course to play and would recommend to any golfer.

I've been playing this course a few times a year for the past 5 years. I was excited to play on Saturday because of the rain we've been getting, and the condition of the course didn't disappoint. The grounds keepers are doing a great job. My frustration comes with the number of players pushed out. Tee time intervals are too close together. Couple that with a tournament, and congestion slows a round to over 5 1/2 hrs. There were several times where there were multiple groups waiting on a tee box with two others on the hole. The large amount of players takes its toll on the course. Many divots in the fairways that weren't filled, impact marks on greens that weren't fixed. I was happy overall with the course condition, but after fixing many divots, it became a chore. I understand that Lakeridge is one of the nicest courses in the area, but it's definitely not worth the price when you are faced with a very slow round and players who are too busy to fix the damage they inflict.
