When planning the schedule for your Lake Tahoe conference at Fallen Leaf Lake, build time for a golf outing before or after your meeting. There are a few courses in South Lake Tahoe offering a variety of difficulty levels and prices.

The most affordable course in South Lake Tahoe is the city-owned Bijou Golf Course in the center of town. 2013 green fees for the nine-hole course are $17 and club rental is $15 (rates will probably go up slightly for 2014). Bijou is a good course for beginners or a warm up for more advanced players to get the golf muscles going and keep up with your stroke. From the Bijou course golfers have great views of the surrounding mountains. Expect the course to be in better shape in the fall versus the spring.

Experienced golfers will want to consider Lake Tahoe Golf Course. You can play the William Bell-designed championship course for $65 midweek or $85 on the weekend. Club and cart rentals are available and proper golf attire is required. If you don’t have time for nine or 18 holes and just want to get out and swing the clubs, Lake Tahoe Golf Course has a putting green, chipping green and driving range available. Group or private lessons are available from PGA teaching professionals and there are a pro shop, snack bar and full bar onsite.

For a first class golf experience on one of the most scenic courses in the world, visit Edgewood Tahoe located on the shore of South Lake Tahoe. The course was designed by George Fazio and rated by Golf Digest Magazine as one of America’s top courses. Spring 2014 green fees range from $110 to $160. Rates go up in summer then drop late summer, and drop again in late fall. If you are not a golfer, Edgewood is worth visiting for the excellent bar and restaurant and to enjoy the amazing lake and mountain views. Edgewood is one of my favorite restaurants to celebrate a special occasion and Brooks bar is a great spot to meet friends for drinks and appetizers.

For a comprehensive overview of area golfing visit Tahoe South. All three South Lake Tahoe golf courses mentioned have staff available year round, so give them a call if you have questions or to schedule a group tee time. I’m not a golfer, but writing this post makes me want to get outside and play!
