Old Greenwood Golf Course
Old Greenwood, host of the 2020 Barracuda Championship on the PGA Tour, is widely regarded as one of the best public courses ever designed by Jack Nicklaus. It features a beautiful mountain backdrop in the High Sierras, winding through an exclusive neighborhood of homes. Tall pines line its twisting fairways. Deep bunkers and water hazards guard demanding Nicklaus greens. The facility, part of the Tahoe Mountain Club, is also home to a golf academy with one of the best practice facilities in northern California.

Always a pleasure
Love this track. Greens lighting fast today, loved it! Played in under 4 hours!
Course was beautiful and great shape. Very challenging course, some picturesque 3 pars
Was a great treat to play this course. Chris the marshall was super nice and helpful
Will play again when back in the area
I love to play this course, but I got tied up with a couple of old guys who thought they were good golfers. There were not and thus it took us 5 hours and 15 minutes to play 18n holes. I played your course a few times and look forward to playing it again. Hopefully I do not get STUCK with these folks again. Looking forward to playing 18 again - I will remember my mistake.
The course is exelent.
BUT while there are 5 tee boxes, non near 6,000 yards.
5,500 ti 6,400 plus and longer. With 5 tee boxes, you shouldnn't have a use a combo card which I did not see to have tees 6,000 - 6,100 the most.
Great golf course
Had a great time playing with strangers as I signed up as a single. The course is in immaculate condition. Love to play this course and would recommend to all.
Another set of tees
Old Greenwood is a beautiful track. The Barracuda tournament had just been held there the previous week so the course was in great shape. However, the rough was long and thick which created a significant penalty if you found yourself there. I think for this high end layout the bunkers could’ve had more and better sand. The greens are well protected with many strategically placed bunkers, some of which are quite deep, and the sand or rather the mix of sand and dirt made them especially unappealing. My friend and I have played there several times and next to Edgewood this is my favorite Tahoe course, so this complaint is a minor irritant, and in truth I suck in bunkers.
There is one thing that would represent a vast improvement in playability for players like myself. I’m 72, with the usual loss of power and distance that goes with that, and the tee options available range from forward tees of about 5400 yards and a rating of 66.1 and a slope of 122 with the next option being 6457 yards with a rating of 70.7 and a slope of 132. There used to be a combo of those two but combo options were no longer on the scorecard. I didn’t want to play a 7500 yard course at 5400 yards so have always played the 6457 yard option. Truthfully that makes for a very difficult outing for this 18 handicapper. A set of tees around 6000 to 6100 yards would make a big difference in the fun factor, and that’s really why I’m out there.
Layout and conditions
First time playing Old Greenwood did not disappoint! Awesome and fun course layout, fairways were wide enough but definitely tree lined on a lot of holes. The tee box and fairway conditions were pristine, the greens were rather slow but they did mention they were preparing them for the upcoming Barracuda Championship in July 2022 so they were growing them out a little which made them very slow in the morning with some dew but got to decent by mid morning. Overall would highly recommend this course for the great conditions and amazing mountain views!
For my first time playing old greenwood, I was not let down. The course was beautiful, the scenery was beautiful and the vibe from the staff was amazing. It’s a track that challenges your shot making and getting up and down for par are like birdies.
Course just opened for the season, excellent condition. Greens perfect. Only thing to nitpick was pace of play. Will definitely e back.
The course was in excellent condition. The greens were quite difficult, fast and tricky but a delight to play.
