Old Greenwood is one of the premier courses in the area. Designed by famed golf pro Jack Nicklaus, the course sits amongst stunning pine and fir forests, while relaxing under the shadow of Mt. Rose. Each hole challenges golfers with sandtrap laden greens and fairways, tricky natural ground contours, ball stealing ponds, and of course, massive trees to ruin shots.

Tahoe Donner is considered a fun yet tough championship mountain course due to its fast greens and fairways winding through natural forests.

Golfers also relax at the T-9 grill, where they enjoy tasty bites and cold beverages. This is truly a course that will challenge any level of player.
Nortsthar’s golf course is very unique because it provides players with 2 separate course experiences. Articulated by the renowned golf course designer Robert Muir Graves, the front 9 gives players the classic links experience as it stretches out into the Martis Valley open landscape. Then the back 9 surprises players with tight alpine strategic play, where golfers navigate impressive land contours, fir and pine forest, and thick vegetation. The course hosts two separate dining options, The Martis Valley Grille for breakfast, lunch, and drinks, and the Turn for a quick refuel heading into the back 9.
Old Brockway is one of the older golf courses in the area. It can be considered a historical course having hosted many celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower back in the 1930’s. The course is Scottish style nestled in a mountain environment, thus creating narrow fairway corridors through massive pine forest, small-fast greens, and lake views on every hole. Golfers also relax at the famed Spindleshanks restaurant, which is famous for gourmet breakfast, lunch, dinner, a full bar, and excellent wine pairings.
