This course is a nice course at the base of the mountains with some great views of the Sierra Mountains and Reno valley. The designers did a good job of making the course challenging. The course has plenty of elevation changes, and the greens are fast and challenging due to the many slopes and angles. The key to this course, without any doubt, is your approach shots into the greens. D'Andrea is not the typical course where just hitting the green is good enough. You will have to know the pin placement and hit your ball to the correct part of the green in order to give yourself an opportunity to score. D'Andrea allows the more advanced golfers to test their ability, as the course challenges you with the many elevation changes and has fast greens with various slopes and angles. The course is in great shape. The greens are fast and have plenty of elevation changes, even on the greens.

This course has nice elevation changes and a wide variety of holes so that it requires the use of all of the clubs in your bag.
