Lake Tahoe Golf Courses Are Open!
The 2021 Golf season is getting underway at Lake Tahoe. Many courses have already opened and the remaining ones will be opening in the next couple of weeks.
While California may be doing away the mask mandate toward mid-summer, you will need your mask because each course can have different best practices.
This year, the Barracuda Championship, an official PGA Tour event, returns to Old Greenwood from August 2nd to August 8th, 2021. The American Century Championship will be held July 6th to July 11th at the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in South Lake Tahoe.

COYOTE MOON GOLF COURSE OPENS MAY 29th 2021
This challenging, but fair course allows all levels of golfers to be tested, while enjoying their round. Most tee shots offer ample landing areas as there are only a few forced carries. From the landing areas, most holes funnel down to medium-sized, undulating greens that are well protected by trees, sand and water.
The golf course was designed by Brad Bell, a former PGA Tour player, well known for creating highly praised golf courses around the central valley. Located in Truckee, this is an excellent choice for golfing in Lake Tahoe.
THE LINKS AT SQUAW CREEK ARE OPEN
Surrounded by six majestic Sierra peaks, the Links at Squaw Creek is a championship Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course in Lake Tahoe that rests serenely at the base of Squaw Valley. Tee times are required.
This magnificent course is the culmination of ten years of extensive planning and careful handling of the environment. Renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed Links at Squaw Creek to preserve the unique beauty, natural wetlands, and wildlife habitat of Squaw Valley. The spectacular result is a natural Lake Tahoe golf course that blends in with its beautiful mountain surroundings.
OLD BROCKWAY GOLF COURSE IS OPEN
Old Brockway Golf Course is steeped in history and was home of the 1st Bing Crosby Golf Tournament 1934 - 1935. It is the first 9-hole golf course in the country to become an Audubon cooperative sanctuary.
The course meanders through towering Jeffery pines with majestic mountain and Lake Tahoe views. You will enjoy more than 3400 yards of quality golfing experience, including two par 5 holes. The tight fairways and the postage stamp greens are reminiscent of golf in an era gone by. The course was built by Harry Comstock and designed by renowned Scottish architect, John Duncan Dunn.
Dunn is 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.
