“Pristine Mountain Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

As a member of Tahoe Donner, it is hard to fined a better value. This course is immaculate, challenging and after 18 holes you want to play another 18. Even for the general public, this course is all anyone could want for the price. Because it is a resort course, it doesn't get as much play as a muni and is always in great shape. Next time you are in Tahoe, give it a play.

“Beautiful course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

It's tucked into the trees, with wildlife all around. Very well taken care of.
A fun course to play. The Pub restaurant upstairs is really fun, however,
their menu DOES NOT cater to a pub atmosphere. Far too fancy for a pub, and therefore loses a lot of business !!! Should serve hot dogs, burgers, made with ground beef (instead of meatloaf) ! Chicken, ribs etc. If we want fancy food, their fancy restaurant has excellent ' fancy' food !

“Expensive muni”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

My husband and I played this course for the first time today and were disappointed. Tahoe Donner is a beautiful resort area but this course does not make the grade. The negatives of this course are: the fairways are in very poor condition, the rough is very tall and unkept, some of the tee boxes have no grass, the greens are ok but could use some TLC. Expect to play a 4 1/2 to 5 hour round. In the condition this course is in the rack rate of $125+ is not worth the price; go to golfnow.com and look for a reduced rate.

For a resort course it is very challenging, and the fairways are narrow and not forgiving. There are elevation changes but most of the holes play uphill.

The positives are this course is in a beautiful setting in the Sierra's among towering pines, meandering streams (when there is a snow melt or rain), granite rock formations.

This course was remodeled in 2006 and received a Golf Digest award when it reopened. Unfortunately, the course needs a lot of work to get it in resort playing condition.

“Mountain Gem”

Tahoe Donner is a true gem of a course. Very much a scratch golfer's course with awesome mountain views wherever you look.
