Arrowcreek in Reno is located on the eastern foothills of the Sierra Mountains, below scenic Mt Rose and Slide Mountain. It encompasses 3200 acres with unsurpassed views of the city of Reno and the Truckee Meadows Valley. Arrowcreek has two private golf courses – the Legend and the Challenge. A wide range of home prices exist from slightly over $300,000 to over $7.5M. The average price is around $1.5M.
After being rescued by a group of members and residents, a new future is in store for Arrowcreek and Arrowcreek’s golf course. Now known as the Club at Arrowcreek, the new management is taking the course back to its beginning. The 36-hole course has seen its ups and downs, but now under the management of Arnold Palmer Golf, the Club at ArrowCreek is changing its policies. “We believe it’s counterproductive for a club to be both public and private,” Jayson Petersen said. “We feel like you’re either a public property or a private course.” Which is why starting May 1, 2015 the course went completely private. Since 2006, the Challenge Course has been members only, while the Legends course designed by Arnold Palmer has been open to the public. According to Petersen, operating like that devalued memberships, and by going private, the club can offer better service to its members. “It just upholds the integrity of the course up higher,” he said. “There are more benefits that come along with being a member.” ArrowCreek is the only private 36-hole golf course in northern Nevada. It’s a move, management says, that is already attracting new members and intriguing former members. “I think they understand the benefits of becoming a private club,” Christina Richmond, Membership Director, said. “They’ve heard from their friends of how things are changing. What’s been exciting for us is the current membership base has really helped spread the word throughout the community. That’s really really helped us and it’s created a really great energy here at the club.” The new management says it enrolled about 400 new members by late 2015. “We’re just excited going forward,” Gary Pestello, chairman of The Friends of ArrowCreek, said. “It’s a new future, a new outlook and this whole community is going to be better for it. And we’re excited about bringing them in and having them be a part of us as well. ”
