Loved the course, really tight fairways and the pin placement was very challenging because of the hilly greens. Almost unfair. High altitude distances off the tee box were wonderful. EXTRA YARDS! We hit the restaurant/bar after and had great food-drinks, met nice people, and watched some football. Fall pricing in place makes this a go to course during September and... More

The pine forest that lines the fairways makes this one of the most picturesque courses I've played. And, the relatively narrow fairways make for a challenging round. Loved the well-maintained layout and that 18th hole is a beast. With such a high, elevated tee box, it's necessary to use a periscope (really) to check the fairway below. Fun, but an... More

Played a round here in mid august not knowing much about the course. Got a $65 coupon online and teed off to find a challenging layout with the best greens that I found in a week of golfing in the Tahoe/Truckee area. I had a big and delicious club sandwich in the clubhouse too! I will be back! BTW, we... More

This is a beautiful course with deer sometimes spotted walking on the fairways. Since the Sierra's have enjoyed late rains, the fairways are in excellent shape and quite green. The temperature is in the mid 70's and quite comfortable for a round of golf. Definitely recommend.

Tahoe Donner is my "home course" so I know it well. I have a "love" "hate" relationship with it but mostly because of my game (not the course). I'm recently retired and a 13 index...and this course gives me everything I can handle 3x a week! It is a "true" mountain course that will challenge all levels including single digits... More

Tahoe Donner is open for the season very early and in great shape. It's a beautiful course in the sierras in Tahoe Donner which is in Truckee. The golf course staff is great. After enjoy The Lodge for drinks in the bar, lunch or dinner. You will be glad you did.

As a member of Tahoe Donner, it is hard to fined a better value. This course is immaculate, challenging and after 18 holes you want to play another 18. Even for the general public, this course is all anyone could want for the price. Because it is a resort course, it doesn't get as much play as a muni and... More

It's tucked into the trees, with wildlife all around. Very well taken care of. A fun course to play. The Pub restaurant upstairs is really fun, however, their menu DOES NOT cater to a pub atmosphere. Far too fancy for a pub, and therefore loses a lot of business !!! Should serve hot dogs, burgers, made with ground beef (instead... More
