One of the hardest courses i've ever played, as a 4 handicap my best was a 77. The greens are terrific, yet hard as a rock.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area

As part of a Homeowners Association the course does a nice job of blending member, guest and public play. Not marketed as a must play like some of the newer courses in the area, but our recent golf buddies trip rated it #2 behind Martis Camp and ahead of Edgewood. (No question Edgewood has great Lake Tahoe views and scenery, but the Tahoe Donner course layout is more interesting.)

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level

Fairways and greens are in excellent condition. Walking will give you a good workout. Beautiful views in every direction. Greens are large and fast. The new "combo" tees allow you pick from 7 different lengths; from 7,000 at the tips down to 5,000 at the most forward. Excellent practice facility.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area
