Avoid Genoa Resort course in Reno/Lake Tahoe area for now
If you’re going to be in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area this fall, the Genoa Resort course is one course you want to cross off your play list. It’s more of a construction zone than a golf course at this point and nobody needs to be chasing birdies while dodging bulldozers.
These earth movers are really hauling and they’re not getting out of the way for golf carts.
A lady golfer told me about nearly fearing for her life. Or at least her golf clubs (maybe she could have bailed from the cart). Genoa Resort course’s parking lot looks like a construction zone.
The course is going through the inevitable hostile housing take over. Six of Genoa Resort’s holes are being torn out because they offer the best views for houses - including two of the best holes on the course - and six new holes are being built in a different area to replace those.
To its credit, Genoa Resort is closing down play for the season on Oct. 18 because of the building. This in a temperate Carson City area where you can golf straight through the winter (a few snow days close the courses, but not for long).
So forget Genoa Resort. Even before the close. Play its down-the-road sister course Genoa Lakes instead. Or even better, Sunridge - an underrated good value Carson Valley course with 26 acres of water.
