Two Genoa Lakes golf courses were put on the market last week for $14 million.

Chase international broker Mike Dunn said that with the slow season on the way, now is the time to buy courses, so new owners will be able to decide how they want to proceed before summer arrives.

“It’s the coolest property in the area,” he said. “Genoa is one of the hottest markets in the region and the owners will be able to turn it into a great leisure opportunity. This is a win-win for our community.”

He noted that with the start of the last project due to open in the near future for the two sessions, the new owners will be able to focus on amenities, such as banquets and weddings.

While someone may only play golf once or twice a week, additional recreational opportunities will be key to the future of the courses.

According to, the two 18-hole golf courses cover 565 acres along the slopes of the Carson Mountain Range.

Courses have a club and dinner club with wedding and banquet facilities.

Far south is the former Sierra Creek Ranch and was approved in 1989 to build 220 homes on 90 acres. Under the approval, the golf course was built first, then the houses. The property has basically reached the construction stage. An attempt to increase the number of homes along the southern path was rejected in district court.

The North Course was built on the former Harvey Gross Ranch purchased by pizza entrepreneur Ron Simic in 1986. The approval for the 312-lot golf course and project involved the first place where the developer transferred the development rights from a non-contiguous property in Douglas County. These rights came from the 900-acre Long Field just south of Mueller Lane, which is also on the market as part of Christopher Bentley’s sale of his Douglas property.

There are 516.46 acres of water rights plus 200 acres of supplemental rights that can be pumped during droughts.

Douglas County’s newest golf course at Clear Creek is within sight of the North Course. To the east lies Sunridge Golf Course at the base of Indian Hills. Carson Valley Golf Course in Gardnerville complements five courses located in the Carson Valley. Edgewood in Stateline is the county’s sixth course.
