Arrowcreek Country Club

3) Arrowcreek is nestled in Southwest Reno above the city with breathtaking views. ?Their Golf course is wonderful, they also feature a club house, exercise gym, dining and a wonderful walking path. ?The beauty of Arrowcreek is in its location. Close to Mt. Rose as well as close to Reno Central, families are able to commute to work while dropping their children off at daycare, schools and also able to enjoy the weekends with shopping at the Summit mall and Golf during the summer with skiing during the winter.

Pro’s: Full club house including food, spectacular views and a wonderful staff at the main gate.

Con’s: Wind, wind and more wind.

Red Hawk Country Club

2) Resort at Redhawk: Located in the suburb of Sparks known as “Spanish Springs” Redhawk consists of a similar setup to Somersett with a smaller amount of homes and more golfing. That’s right, count them, two 18 hole golf course’s a swimming pool and work out gym, Redhawk has everything you need.

Pro’s: Literally all in one, never leave, they even have a Raley’s on site, hotel and event center. ?Golf carts include GPS to help hone in on your skills on the course.

Con’s: Quite a way out of the way, not the easiest to get to or leave, no easy access to freeways. Unless you find the desert a great view, the views at Red Hawk are pretty boring plus the wind without much of a break from any mountains, might make you want to reconsider.

Reno Country Clubs Somersett

As a fifth generation Nevadan, the idea of a Country Club means very little to me. ?In fact, as a kid, my only experiences at country club’s were in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Quincy, Illinois. These were all areas that I have family and where Country Club’s actually existed. ?In Northern Nevada, we had The Caughlin Club, Lakeridge Golf Club and Hidden Valley Golf Club, but none of which encompassed the total community of what I have come to know of a “Country Club.”

A lot has changed since my childhood, in fact, we now have a plethora of “Country Club” type communities and a few that actually meet my specifications of a “Country Club.”

In these posts I will feature a new Country Club every week.

Located in West Reno (Northwest to the locals) is a new and upcoming community known as Somersett. This community consists of over 10 different homedevelopments all in theme and with a variety of designs, sizes and sub-communities available. Their Golf Course was designed by PGA Champion golfer Tom Kite, with a 18 hole, par 72 course as well as the “Canyon 9” a 9 hole course great for a quick round.</>

Pro’s: Quick and easy access less that 1 mile from I-80 and less than 5 miles for California. In addition to the Golf Club, homeowners enjoy the Club at Town Center, including a full outdoor pool with waterslide, a bar and grill as well as a new Sushi Restaurant.

Con’s: The “Club House” has not yet been completed, however they do have a bar & grill in a permanent tent at the start of the Golf Course.
