Lake Tahoe Golf Course - South Lake Tahoe, CA
Designed by William Bell, Lake Tahoe Golf Course is a fine public track and a great value. With views of Mt Tallac, Twin Peaks, and Heavenly, there are several challenging and unique holes to keep play interesting and fun. The Upper Truckee River also winds its way through the course, which I would find several times.
My buddy John and I played a warmup round here before my bachelor party kickoff in 2013. Scorewise, things were going poorly until I hit one close on 16 for birdie, made a long putt for birdie on 17, and rolled in a 10 footer for birdie on 18. In those 3 holes, I was able to bring my round back into the 70’s. To this day, I use this memory as a reminder to not give up when things are going poorly. In an instant a bad round of golf can turn into one that you will remember for a lifetime.
