Detailed description of Old Brockway Golf Course

Old Brockway Golf Course is a Public, 9 hole golf course located on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe in Kings Beach, California.

Old Brockway Golf Course first opened for play in 1926. Old Brockway Golf Course was built by Harry Comstock and designed by renowned Scottish architect John Duncan Dunn. Dunn was one of the premiere golf course architects of his era. He built many famous courses in his day, one being the Shinnecock Hills, NY, site of the 1995 US Open. Historic Old Brockway features small, turtle-back greens, minimum green to tee walking distances, and tight-knit fairways.

The course features some extremely scenic meadows and a picturesque steam. However, if your ball goes into either one of these hazards, they may lose their beauty as your score begins to rise from penalty strokes.  The greens are in excellent condition.  

Bing Crosby began his unofficial golf tournament here, which became  a PGA Tour stop in Pebble Beach. Other regulars at the course included Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Joe Kennedy, Dean Martin, Dean Witter and Lucille Ball. In fact, holes #1, 2, 3, 8 and 9 are collectively know as "The Whiskey Run" after Martin's drinking escapades on the course. Legend has it, after playing #1, 2 and 3, he would need to head in, so he'd then play #8 and 9 to finish his round.  

Course personnel have stressed that this is now a fantastic place to bring the entire family.

Old Brockway offers over 3400 yards of quality, serene golfing with two par 5′s, two par 3′s and five par 4′s

This is a great 9 hole course for beginners and players who want to warm-up for an 18 hole course. Some of the holes are very challenging for a 9 hole course.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
