About Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe

The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, a AAA Five Diamond resort, is nestled midmountain at the ski-centric Northstar California Resort in Truckee. It is located just six miles from downtown Truckee and a half hour from Lake Tahoe, where the Lake Club is an exclusive beachfront hangout with paddleboarding, kayaks and food and drinks included in the daily fee. The Backyard Bar & BBQ and Manzanita, the signature restaurant, serve up tasty fare. A gondola ride from the 170-room hotel leads to the Northstar ski village, which bustles with restaurants, mini-golf, festivals and skating in the summer. The resort offers golf packages to two adjacent courses 12 miles away - the Golf Club at Gray's Crossing and Old Greenwood, site of the PGA Tour's 2020 Barracuda Championship.

. Hard golf course.

If you’re up to a very challenging golf course, it would be the place. I am a two handicap and I didn’t find it to be very much fun. I like the opportunity to score when I hit good shots.

Pace of Play

Wonder why I was waiting 20 mins on the 12th tee. At one point there were 4 groups on the tee box. Apparently there was an 8-some ahead slowing the pace to a crawl.

Course was good but slightly overpriced due to it hosting a PGA event. Staff was great. Probably won’t play it again due to the pace of play issue.

Players course with some benefits to keeping the ball below the hole. Be careful of the false fronts.

Great course if you bring some patience with some great views, the back nine and the front nine present different types of challenges with the front nine being more tight and playable, and the Backnine, being more of a shot makers and risk takers Haven. Make sure you practice your chipping and putting especially dialing in your soft hands around the greens. You will find a bunker.

Fun Track

Loved the architecture on a lot of the houses around the course. Felt it was fairly tough but not crazy. Good conditions. Played it very early in the morning and it was quite cool to start. Played 10 courses in the area over 6 days and would put this one somewhere in the middle.

Play where the pros play

Played this one a couple days after the PGA event. I was amazed at how much they had already torn out in just a few days. The course was lush and beautiful. A fun layout. The rough was still insanely thick from the PGA event (congrats Akshay). The clubhouse is getting renovations done and the grill was closed so we had to eat from a super overpriced food truck out front. Definitely a must play if you are in the area. Great logo and great gear in the clubhouse as well.

Fantastic Course, Small Improvements

The courses was fantastic. Small recommendation would be for the staff to be more welcoming and have food ready at the turn.

Incredible Golf Course

I really enjoyed this course. they were about two weeks out form a pga event so the course was in great shape. It's challenging and a little course knowledge comes in handy. The greens and fairways were phenomenal. It was pretty expensive to play $235 but worth the experience although Im not sure I would pay that much again to play it unless it was a special occasion. I think it's worth $120 or so all day.
