This is a high end golf course in a fabulous setting. The fairways are well kept as well as the greens. For me, it seems the architect went out of his way to make it more difficult with numerous sand traps on what seemed like every hole. Many of them thoroughly protecting the pin. The course is sorely lacking for... More

Good course; but, pace of play is slow and $6. For a can of beer is a rip! C'mon, we may be captive; but, that is over the top!

Played this course on a cool summer afternoon and had a wonderful time. Course was in great shape and the trees/setting are spectacular. Course was is great shape with fast greens. Helps if you are able to work the ball, since there are quite a few doglegs and hazards in play. Highly recommended.

Greeted at the door & seated outside, we enjoyed mix of golfers & locals out for a bite to eat and the fabulous landscape, Green Course & mountains beyond! The food was good, the service was a little spotty(Long wait for refills), but still a good value for the money spent!

Wow. How can such a great course have some poor managment/service. We played Gray's Crossing the same week (few miles apart) and they treated everyone like they were members. Old Greenwood treated you like you were an inconvenience. Need a new manager to change the culture. If not, this will be another great course struggling to make ends meet.

We loved everything about our experience at Old Greenwood! Very nice pro shop with fantastic customer service! The course was in great shape and is fair from all tees. Jack gets us with the greens!! The pin placements were challenging! We played 3 days in a row! The local members were very nice and friendly, too. Just an overall great... More

Jack has designed a beautiful mountain course. Old Greenwood includes beautiful vistas while challenging the golfer with a variety of shots. There is no trickery, just a honest challenge.

Everything at this course is fantastic except course time management. We played on a Friday. In a shrinking market, you would think the #1 priority once customers on are on course is to speed or expedite play. We literally waited on every shot during this 5 hour plus round. There were holes where there were 4 -4some on the same... More

Always in perfect condition,this is my favorite course in the area. Not an easy course to play so think twice if you are a beginner. A little on the expensive side but most courses in this area are. Gorgeous scenery and friendly staff its worth the price. September is the best month to visit thr Lake Tahoe area!

...though I wasn't sure why it was "Cart Path Only". This added quite some time to the round. Also, no facility for food/drink after the 9th.... despite this would probably play it again.
