It is certainly possible to lose more than your shirt in Nevada, should the cards, dice and slots run cold. Yet if golfers stay away from the felt and stick to the kind of green that grows, they will likely save enough money to buy souvenir shirts from their favorite courses along the Devine Nine Golf Trail.
Each of the courses has its allure, but the Genoa Lakes Golf Club & Resort Lakes Course, which has been ranked the third best course in a state filled with great courses, is a sure thing. Accuracy is at a premium, since the course doesn't have "Lakes" in its name for nothing, and the criss-crossing of the Carson River and the meandering deer and the extremely true greens all combine to create an outstanding golf experience.
