Long way from Kansas

Beautiful course and conditions for last week of golf season.
I would definitely play again if I'm out that way. Friendly staff and good set of rental clubs were available for me. Locals I played with were great guys!

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.

STRONG SUGGESTION

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 Course!

Very nice course layout that is in very good condition. A few holes require some strategy for the approach shots the first time you play. Overall, a very nice course that I would recommend.

Bummer Crossing

This place sucked on price value only. Course was top notch and so was the service. Beware they add 22% to every check and the house retains the 2%.. The pace of play was bad as we waited 5–10 minutes on each hole to tee off. Then my buddy just gave up on it .so, the cherry was we got to 18 which is a awesome finishing hole. The freakin groundskeeper is watering the green. He totally ignores us keeps going about his business. I just went home won’t play there again. Shame

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.

Tough slog

Very difficult course for short hitters from the white tees. Par 5s we’re brutal. Enormous number of sand bunkers so be forewarned. As a senior golfer, I will not be returning..
