Ash Wednesday

In the midst of a horrific fire season that saw huge amounts of ash and smoke invading the Tahoe Basin, golf was a nice departure. Beautiful course and the surrounding mountains were semi-visible which added to the serenity. The greens were dull of goose crap which made the day a little more difficult. All in all it was what I needed.

Very disappointed

Front nine was okay, but a six-some was in front of the group in front of us. it took two hours to play four holes on back nine. No marshal and staff did not seem to care. Very disappointed

Great course, good value

It's hard to top playing golf looking at the Tahoe mountains.

The hot dog was not good.

Fun and Challenging Course

Booked a Hot Deal through Golf Now and was well worth it. Within minutes of South Lake, so no need to travel far.. Friendly staff, straightforward front 9, but back 9 was definitely more challenging., requiring course management. Back 9 played a bit slower. Will return

Nice but slow paced

Really beautiful scenery surrounding the course. Really enjoyed the course except for the pace of play. People in front of us were very slow and we had two groups waiting and backed up behind them .Although we kindly communicated this to the staff they did nothing to move things along. We waited every hole for quite some time and yet the slow people in front of us had a wide open course in front. It was frustrating and more so that the staff really did not care

Played twice

I ended up having to play twice because I couldn’t book a single, and had to pay full price for second round.

Fun!

Holliday weekend so it was pretty packed but the course was fun and the scenery was beautiful! Played an afternoon tee time and it was perfect weather. Fairways are open and greens are nice. Slower than they look but the cups hadn’t been cut in a few days and you could tell. My only suggestion would to bring some form of gps or range finder because it’s near impossible to tell how far out you are without markers visible in the fairways or on sprinkler heads near your shot.

Course in Absolute Disaray

The course has no irrigation and you are playing on fairways that are dirt, dry grass and rocks. There are fairways that are under construction and really not playable. This place is under staffed, poorly maintained, no matter what there apology is that us posted on the door. No one should be charged to play here and it should be closed until it is ready to resume it's original condition. Do not recommend that anyone plays here.
Called management, but no response. Never finished back 9. Just a mess.
