Northstar Golf Course
A tale of two nines
Front side good, backside bad. Front is an open meadow with good routing and great views, back nine is jammed in and around houses, narrow, goofy layout with just a few straight forward holes, very pretty though. Can get very windy on front nine. Green are in very good shape and fast with some subtle slippery breaks but a true roll, good putters will like them. Staff is great.

ESCAPE THE HEAT
nice course-good condition--played it to escape valley heat--back 9 more difficult--greens a little slow and hard to read but overall well worth playing--nice patio too

TWO DISTINCT NINES
Front nine more open than the claustrophic back nine. Trees and elevation changes are challenging on the back nine. Great, friendly staff. Would play again but from the white tees.

Great course not so on the managment
They must have over booked, I felt like I was being pushed , We finished the 18 in 3:15 hrs but were constantly being rushed by the management. They need to forget about the money and make it a more fun time.

This is a fun course, but the back nine has several holes that require local knowledge.

Northstar is a great venue!
Played a rain shortened 18 holes. Had to stop after 8 and go to club house. Waited over an hour to finish 9 and call it a day. Staff was excellent, friendly, and very helpful. They put our clubs in out of the rain while we had hot chocolate and coffee waiting out the storm. Great place and great staff.

This was my first time playing this course and I was very surprised. The course was in great shape and greens were rolling nicely. Would even put it up there close to a Greys Crossing/Greenwood quality course. 45$ twilight round is a great deal

CAUTION! VERY SLOW GREENS AHEAD
I live in Reno and have played Northstar before. Never before were the greens so slow. It made putting a drag and nothing to look forward to. Usually on most sloped greens you want to be below the hole with your approach shot. After a few holes of blasting putts we figured better to be above the hole and use the gravity assist. Even then putts were left short of the hole. Laughable!
