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.

Kids were a little rambunctious, but the staff is so friendly and nice, that we didn't feel too bad about our poorly behaved children. The pool is so kid friendly and it made our afternoons very restful and enjoyable.

This Truckee course is well designed and not for beginners. Be sure to select a tee that is appropriate for your level so that you, as well as those behind you, can enjoy the day. Prices are variable but you can usually snag a deal if you are a member of the NCGA.

My partner and I come to the Tahoe area once a year and play 4 or 5 course in the Truckee area. Old Greenwood stands out by far, as our worst experience on a very nice course. Instead of offering a quality golf experience at a fairly expensive 150 dollars, it seems management is more concerned with cramming as many... More

Father-in-Law has a timeshare & we stay frequently. I hear the golfing is very good, I don't golf so I don't know. The area is very beautiful, amazing views & great fun either in summer (using the pool, water slides & gym) or winter (snow shoeing). Different size cabins available, some have an outdoor BBQ &/or a Hot Tub. Furnished... More

I ave played this course now 5 times and it gets better every time. The layout is challenging but fair. Back 9 has a little more character than the front. It is always in great shape. As the summer goes a long, the greens get a little faster, which I prefer. Cant say enough about the staff. They really make... More
