Montreux Real Estate is on 726 acres with approximately 540 homesites. All residences must be designed in the European/Alpine style, approved by the Montreux Design Review Committee and plans stamped by a licensed architect.
Sam Jaksick, one of Nevada’s premier developers, acquired the property with his partners in the early 90s. Their dream was to build a truly distinctive community that would exist in harmony with its natural surroundings. They wanted to grace the land with homes that embrace and enhance the beauty of the Sierra Nevada foothills. The first home sites were sold in September 1997. Each year Montrêux draws closer to filling the approximately 540 homesites over its 700+ acres. Early on, Jack Nicklaus was brought on board to design Montrêux’s signature golf course. Construction on the only Nicklaus course in Northern Nevada began in 1994 and it was completed and playable by June 1997. Today, Nicklaus himself considers Montrêux one of his top five courses. The quality of this private course was recognized by the PGA when they made it the site of the annual Reno-Tahoe Open in 1999. The name of this event has changed to the Barracuda Championship.
The Barracuda Championship is part of the PGA TOUR, the world’s most powerful sports brand. As a proud member of the PGA TOUR family, the Barracuda Championship will take place June 27 – July 3, 2016 at Montreux and is worth 300 FedExCup points to the winner of our tournament, not to mention the lion’s share of a $3.2 million purse.
