One of two impressive courses at the Genoa Lakes Golf Club, the Lakes course is the product of a brilliant collaboration between PGA champion Peter Jacobsen and John Harbottle III. The spectacular links-style course measures more than 7,300 yards from the tips and, true to its name, incorporates water elements on fourteen holes, including both the native wetlands and the winding Carson River. The engaging Lakes course also offers four sets of tees, lush greens, rolling fairways and charming views of the eastern Sierra Nevada.
