Length 7106 yards
Slope 146
Rating 73.9

The Championship Course at Incline Village will challenge golfers of all levels, and leave even scratch golfers breathless with a slope rating that tops 140. Combining amazing scenery with demanding golf action, the Championship Course is high on the list of traveling golfers looking for the best from their High Sierra golf package.

Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., the course received a facelift in 2003, courtesy of golf course architect Kyle Phillips. The nearly $5 million renovation reinvigorated the course, which demands accuracy, as well as giving players risk-reward opportunities over trees and bunkers.

With two golf courses - the Championship and Mountain courses - Incline Village offers something for all level of golfer, and offers outstanding service and conditioning, as well as top-notch practice facilities, making it a highlight for a High Sierra golf vacation.

Great course

The course is awesome. If you haven’t played here before, you should. The fairways, the greens, the views. The greens are super fast.

Nice and challenging course.

Exciting course.
Very challenging.
Good condition.
But close too early, even all toilets are locked so early, which is unusual for such a place.

My new favorite course - absolutely worth the money

I love playing golf in Tahoe, but this was the first time I got to play Incline, and I wasn't disappointed.

Everything about this course from start to finish is top notch and worth the money. Upon first glance, it appears to be like any other tree-lined mountainous course, however as you play through you begin to feel the difference. Each hole has something to it, and once you're done you feel like you've been on a real adventure. Having played Gray's Crossing two days prior, I was overwhelmingly pleased by how much better my experience was at Incline. The golf shop was brimming with a variety of quality products. Facility staff were easy to talk to despite the upscale atmosphere. I had a great time here and so will you. Highly recommended.

Save your Money

Save your money. The course is just "OK" and frankly not worth the time or money. Driving range is small with yardage limiting balls, that by the way aren't free. No beverage cart on the course, so you better stock up before you tee off. My expectations were much higher and for the cost there are much better courses to play in the area.

Beautiful day and course

Course was in great shape. Just like every other course they had covid features applied. This did not detract from how great this course played. 15 minute intervals made for relatively smooth round (backed up on the last 4) but only 4.10 hours so can't complain.

Gem of the mountains

Love this course. Was in great shape and was well kept during shutdown and end of snow season. Greens were coming in so ran a little slow but the course was pure. Late May and June are best time to go as everything is green and the streams are running. Play it once and you will be hooked.
