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.
