This 463-yard, Par 4 is one of Lahontan's most unique and scenic holes because it marks the first appearance of Martis Creek, the year-round trout stream that winds through the course. There are also stunning off-site views of Martis Peak and Juniper Hill with Mount Rose and the Carson Range in the distance. While Martis Creek doesn't affect play, its sight and sounds will certainly enhance your enjoyment of this hole.

The smaller green is nestled at the end of a sharp dogleg left, so you have a definite choice here. Be adventurous and sneak your shot to a narrow area left and you'll have a shorter, more direct approach to the green. The landing area to the right has more room for error, but leaves a more difficult and longer approach to most pin positions. The green is protected by two bunkers front and back right. The strategy choices and the park like setting will make this hole a popular subject for discussion.
