Situated within the woodlands of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Tahoe Paradise Golf Course has a hilly landscape covered with towering pines. This short, tight golf course is filled with challenges including tight, narrow fairways and smooth, fast greens. The fairways are also lined with trees and thick cuts of rough and some of there is an occasional sloped green. Tahoe Paradise Golf Course's par-4 holes are said to have severe dogleg fairways and water hazards come into play on two holes. The picturesque scenery provides a relaxing break from the challenges of the golf course. One of the most scenic holes is the par-3 14th with a spectacular view of Mt. Tallac and the surrounding peaks.

Horrible Greens

The course is through the trees and kind of fun to play. It's not a very long course, so my wife enjoyed scoring better than she normally does. The greens were horrible. I don't know if they had some type of disease or what, but they were super bumpy and extremely slow. You never knew where your ball was going to go when you putted it.

This course is very challenging for a par 66 III presents many challenges with narrow fairways. The staff is amazing however the greens need work and cart paths are not very well organized

Good course with varying challenges

Good for beginners/intermediate.

Wish the cart paths were a bit better maintained. Other than that the place was great for a casual group of 2-4

Short but challenging. Lots of trees.

At $70 per player on a weekday you could expect more. The entire course needs a lot of TLC.

A tight and small course that brings out a challenge to almost every golf shot. The walk was enjoyable for the nine holes that I played and would do it again. My only negative opinion is the price. I paid 37 to walk only 9, instead of the 50 for all 18 and just walking I believe. I think the price of the course is too much to play. That’s just my opinion regardless I enjoyed my play.

Pleasant surprise

We play 75 rounds a year +/- a few. Great par 66. We walked. First four holes on each side uphill then downhill or flat. Back side excellent layout and in good shape. A must play if you like a challenge.

Great if you are looking for a unique experience

Course was in great shape, short a few rough greens, and some patchy fairways, however, what seemed like and oh well when we drove up, turned into a great experience! Seen nothing like it before. Would recommend to anyone looking for unique course layout, beautiful country side nestled into the landscape. Don't judge by it's cover, off the beaten path, it will challenge your iron play, narrow fairways, postage stamp greens, but had an absolute great time!

Great warm up course before you play the big boys

Since the weather has only just begun to warm up, it is fair to say it’s a little early in the season for greens and fairways to be smooth and bump less. Fun course though.

Great local course

Tahoe Paradise is a hidden gem. There's a great selection of holes, most of which have challenging shots through the trees.

It's such a great course for my iron game.

The greens are, due to the geography, always a challenge - don't end up above the hole! - but that is all part of the attraction.

Gavin and the staff are fantastic and the local's card is just the cherry on the cake.
