“Great Place to Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

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 with full refrigerator, cooking & eating utensils, large screen TV's, DVD player's in each bedroom. Very nice places.

“Great Experience! This track and it's staff are top notch.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

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 you feel welcome and work to ensure you have a great experience.

If you can only play once in Truckee, this would be the place

“Very slow play”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

We played Old Greenwood Friday 7th at 1.10 pm.
The welcome in pro shop, restaurant and cart pull in was extremely friendly and efficient.
We reported into the starter well within 40 minutes and we ready to go when called.
We found that our slot was given to a two and worse than that there was a 5 playing in front with three carts.
Having five in a group is not acceptable on any course let alone a course of this standard and price.
We were waiting on every shot ...whenever the Marshall came around he never ever talked to us about the problem ahead.
5 in a group is definitely not good golfing management.

“Golf in the Forest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

We are beginner golfers and found the course challenging but not overwhelming. We played from the forward tees, The golf course was very well maintained. The bunkers were difficult and there are lots...they are deep. You must have a straight drive or you will hit trees.
The greens were challenging but not too fast. The vistas take your breath away. They provide fresh water from Truckee for drinking. We would golf here often, if we lived nearby. We didn't see any bears! We rented clubs...about $50 each...Cobras...for $10 you can upgrade to Titleist.
