This temporary hockey venue is a Cool Golf Thing

Fairways are for more than golf.
Workers build out the rink for the 2021 NHL Outdoors in Lake Tahoe on the 18th fairway of the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Club.

No, it's not the Winter Classic that old-school hockey fans have come to love since the NHL started it as a nod to the sport's outdoor, frozen-pond roots in 2008. But amid the coronavirus pandemic, it's a decent consolation.

Carrying the name "NHL Outdoors," this season's adventures in hockey al fresco will have a golf connection. The two games - between the Las Vegas Golden Knights and Colorado Avalanche on Saturday, February 20; and the Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins on Sunday, February 21 - will be played atop the 18th fairway at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Club in Stateline, Nev.

Even if you haven't included the course and the associated Lodge at Edgewood in a golf trip, chances are you've seen it on TV, sans snow. That's because the resort hosts the annual American Century Championship, the premier celebrity golf tournament, since inception in 1990. The 2021 edition will air Friday, July 10 through Sunday, July 12.

If you're interested in seeing Edgewood Tahoe's snowy turn, note that the puck drops at 3 p.m, ET on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday, with both games broadcast on NBC.
