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.
