The private course at the exclusive ArrowCreek Country Club in Reno, The Challenge was designed by the cunning duo Fuzzy Zoeller and John Harbottle III. A spectacular blend of Scottish links and high desert landscaping, the course is truly world-class.
The 18 holes of The Challenge course measure 7,455 yards to the tips, incorporating more than 130 bunkers, lush fairways and fast greens in a winding, challenging layout. Like its sibling course, The Challenge is accented by the natural high desert vegetation, including tall grasses and shrubs.
The spectacular location of the club and its courses means dramatic views of the surrounding mountains and the city below. The vistas make an ideal backdrop for the devious course, particularly on hole 14. Golfers lining up a shot are treated to a stunning bird’s-eye view of the casinos in downtown Reno, framed across the twisting fairway.
Ranked among Golf Digest’s “Places to Play,” ArrowCreek Country Club features practice facilities that include a driving range, practice green and nine-hole putting course, as well as a complete short game/chipping green/bunker complex. The beautiful clubhouse offers fine and casual dining, luxurious private lounges featuring steam rooms and massage areas, and a well-equipped pro shop for all those golfing essentials.
