Staff is great, course condition good!

The pace of play was good, having to wait just a bit at times for the foursome in front. However, I will note it was totally understood as that group had two elderly gentlemen, one easily in his 80's. But he had a nice short game from what we saw. Just needed a little more time to get from his cart to his shot location. We certainly appreciate seeing seniors enjoying themselves out on the course. What other game can you play into your 80's? The course was in good condition. We lucked out with the weather, smokey for the 1st two holes, but the wind from the oncoming storm blew all the smoke away. We were able to complete our 18, with only slight sprinkles on the 18th. It was great to have the storm move into the area. It started to rain lightly as we left the course, which was great as it cleared the sky to typical beautiful Lake Tahoe conditions in a few hours!

Staff is great, course condition good!

The pace of play was a little slow due to a busy day on the course. The Marshall did do her best to keep the pace going. The Pro Staff was great! And the course was in good condition. A thunderstorm caught up with us on hole 16 tee box. It rained pretty hard for the next two holes. But were able to finish #18 with no rain. I would recommend this course, nice layout and great location!

Nice option in Tahoe

Scored a great deal on Golf Now. Crowded course on a Tuesday afternoon. Near 5 hour round.

Solid option in South Lake Tahoe where there aren’t many good choices. For a mountain course it surprisingly flat with no elevated tee boxes. Greens are fast but fair. Bunkers are inconsistent, some hard some soft. Fairways in great shape.

I’d book it again but not at full price.

Excellent course - well worth a visit

If in the Tahoe area then I recommend you play this course.
The course condition plus the amazing scenery make this a great visit. Where else do you have a coyote wander past you when on the green?
This was my first visit but I will play here again any time I am visiting Tahoe.

Fun and challenging course

It was my first time playing Lake Tahoe Golf Course. The staff was friendly and we got off on time. I played with two locals who let me know what to expect and where to aim my shots. Somme holes were open, but quite a few required a Strategic shot in order to be in position to get on the green. We move along well and finished in 4 hours. I hope to get back to play again sometime.

Scenic views and horrible pace of play

Course was in great shape and the views were nice. Loved how flat the course was and how some holes were challenging. One problem I had was my game took more than 5 hours long. I wish there was a Marshall to enforce the pace of play. For 10 holes, we were always stuck with 2 other groups. Turns out, there was a bachelor party going on that got to rowdy and was playing with their shirts off. Nobody cared and the pro shop never addressed it. Not a good impression on how I wanna come back. However I'll give it another chance because of the views and challenges

Good choice in Tahoe

Not many public options in the South Lake Tahoe area so I played here for the first time. The course is a heavily wooded parkland layout on a flat piece of land. A lot of dog legs. Not super tough but no cupcake either. Greens are in great shape.. I thought being a mountain course it would have some elevation changes but not so. Still it has some amazing views of the surrounding mountains and is visually very appealing. Pace of play is slow due to high demand for tee times with few other options in the area.

Overall a solid track and enjoyable day. I booked another tee time already.
