“It is Paradise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a very friendly golf course--an 18 hole course that goes through the woods that you can play for a cheap price and can almost always get on by walking up. That said, it is anything but a "high end" golf course--the greens are OK, the fairways are adequate, and there are trees that get in the way. For example, there is one hole where there is a tree blocking the right side of the green on a short par three. But part of the fun in golf, IMO, is figuring out what to do in situations that are unusual--if you don't want obstacles, go to the place where the windmill opens up to allow your ball through occasionally.

The real buy on the course, if you are going to play more than once, is the annual card. For a really small amount of money, you get a free round and a significant discount on future rounds.

Of course, do not expect to play this course in the October through April period--it's likely to be under snow. And early in the season, the greens are not yet really very good. But hey, if you're out here for fun, this is a fun course.

The course has decent gas carts, is very walkable, and has a friendly staff.

“Pretty Decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

I liked this course but found the T-times to be a bit off. I had to wait several times during the day. The course however is beautiful, right up agains the water.

“Tahoe Paradise golf outing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Not exactly paradise but an older course with lots of slopes, narrow fairways and lots of pine trees. Golf club rentals are very old clubs that I never heard of. You'll find lots of novice golfers and teenagers here due to the lower rates.

“Not bad for beginners”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Just begining in golf? This small roadside course will give you a workout. This is an executive length course ... no 5-pars ... lots of 3-pars. We played in what was early season for this mountain course. Greens were aerated & unputtable. A few questionable greenskeeper choices (trees blocking access to short 3-par) made play difficult for no reason. A bit pricey considering the quality of the fairways & greens.

“Fun challenging course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

This is a nice course nestled in the woods. The fairways are narrow and challenging but fun. My group had a great time. The staff was friendly and we even got to see some local wildlife. We are planning to make a visit to this course on our next trip to Tahoe.
