Fun little track, course seem set up to favor a slicer with several dog leg rights and some strategically placed trees. Greens are fair. Overall the course has held up well given California drought conditions, lots of green.

Was in Tahoe for a week of golf and played four different courses. The Lake Tahoe Golf Course is a very walkable, scenic, reasonably priced course. My friend and I played on a Sunday afternoon and finished the round in 3 1/2 hours walking. The course is in great shape and the staff were all friendly and helpful. If I... More

With the scenic views from the golf course, its always fun to play a game here. The golf course is a Par 71, and is a 6741 yard championship golf course. The golf course was designed by William Bell

My husband is a golfer and researched several courses before our trip to Lake Tahoe. This course was challenging and fun! I enjoy golf and wanted to ride along. There was a $20 rider fee that we weren't expecting. Still, we had a good time and the pace was pleasant; they are very strict on time. Know your golf etiquette... More

This is not an extremely difficult golf course, but it is fair, fun and very interesting. The staff, headed by General Manager Kevin Summerfeld, are always nice and helpful. I've played here for about 25+ years and I always enjoy the experience....If you are looking for a fun round of golf in a beautiful setting give this a try. Mike

American Golf Corp is famous for its average courses. LTGC is neither long nor short; neither hard nor easy; neither pristine nor ragged; neither outrageous nor a bargain. The greens are smooth but slow. The fairways are green and spongy. Nothing special except the setting. And that is very special.

The course was too long for my wife from her normal tees. There was a shorter set of tees called family tees, but that was like an executive course in length and most holes had no tee box for that set of tees. The course was in good condition but the pace of play was almost 5 hours.

I played June 26th, 2014 and found the course in generally nice condition with the exception of the greens. They were bumpy and needed cutting and rolling. They had good grass coverage, just needed attention to making them smooth.... Pricing is excessive for this quality course, but they are the only course in the area. Green fees are about $90...

This public course is in a meadow, with several water hazards and shallow bunkers. Played the black tees at 6300 yards, and it played much shorter because of the elevation. Greens were a bit bumpy, and a few had difficult breaks. But generally the greens were pretty flat. Fairways were pretty open and firm to give the ball extra roll.... More
