Rosewood Golf

Current Status

Rosewood Lakes Golf Course closed due to construction of the Southeast Connector. It will remain closed to the public for the foreseable future.


09-19-18 UPDATE: Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation (TMPF) has signed a 1-year license agreement with the City of Reno to operate their offices out of the Rosewood Lakes Golf Course clubhouse. This creates a reliable on-site presence at the course as we move forward on figuring out what it will become, one idea being a nature preserve. In partnership with TMPF, we have applied for a planning grant to master plan the golf course.  If you would like more information, please download the whitepaper written by TMPF.

Additionally, we are waiting to see if the grass seed will take on the driving range over the next few months. The growth success will determine if the driving range can resume normal activities again. 


Per Reno City Council, City staff is exploring a public/private partnership to develop, operate, and maintain a proposed “Pembroke Recreational Complex.”

What does this mean?

  • There is a possibility of a public/private partnership in which a private developer would develop, operate and maintain a recreational sports complex, which would include Rosewood Lakes Golf Course.
  • Rosewood Lakes Sports Village is a for-profit developer group.
  • The developer would provide all the capital funds to build a sports complex and a data center.
  • The developer would also provide all the operating funds to operate and maintain a sports complex and a data center.
  • The developer would receive all revenues.
  • The City would provide the land.
  • Per an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA), the developer is required to complete due diligence so that the Reno City Council can make an informed decision on whether or not to move forward on this project.

Proposal: Pembroke Recreational Complex

In January 2017, the City of Reno released Request for Qualification #030089, seeking qualified candidates for the development, operation and maintenance of a recreational complex through an open process. In addition to Rosewood Lakes Golf Course, the City owns five parcels around Pembroke Drive and is interested in having them developed with recreational amenities that include athletic fields, golf, open space, and other amenities commonly located with a public outdoor recreational complex. One response was received. Council selected Rosewood Lakes Sports Village, LLC for the development, operation, and maintenance of the Pembroke Recreational Complex.
