Sierra Sage Golf Course has a classic desert layout conveniently located just north of downtown Reno, Nevada.
The golf course features small, fast greens and generous fairways lined with native vegetation. There are elevation changes that can cause tricky lies and bunkers strategically placed throughout. Water hazards come into play on four holes. There are also multi-tiered greens scattered across the golf course to provide another challenging element.
The front nine of the Stead Golf Course was built in 1960 by the U.S. Air Force for the use of military personal assigned to the Stead Air Force Base. With the phasing out of Stead Air Force Base in the middle 1960s Washoe County assumed operation and maintenance of the course, Washoe County purchased the course in 1966 and renamed it Sierra Sage. At an approximate cost of $225,000 the back nine was added to the course in 1970.
Sierra Sage Golf Course also offers an all-grass driving range, two putting greens, and a bunkered chipping green for golfers to use. The course is a local favorite due to the player-friendly layout and affordable rates.
