Overview
More
The Northstar-at-Tahoe™ Resort golf course in Lake Tahoe, California is an 18-hole, par-72 (men and women) course that will both challenge golfers’ skills and appeal to their senses. Designed by Robert Muir Graves, the course integrates Tahoe’s rugged, wooded landscape with wavy bunkers and putting greens. The result is an active golf course whose features create a flow of movement that seamlessly moves in and over the natural terrain.Playing up to 6,781 yards, the Northstar® Resort golf course offers four tee locations and carries a rating of 72.4 from the Northern California Golf Association. The Mountain nine demands precise, tight play through tree-lined fairways and across small greens. The Meadow nine opens up to a links-style course allowing golfers to grip it and rip it!

The old men who work there are the rudest most pretentious course staff that I have ever encountered. These types are what gives golf a bad name. If you're a snob this is the place for you. Otherwise, avoid it like the plague

I have to repeat what everyone has said: the front 9 and back 9 are totally different. The front 9 is very playable. Several of the holes on the back 9 require a layup before trying to go over a ravine which can be difficult...More

we play this course on the way to Lake Tahoe. The two 9's are a different as can be. The front is flat and the back 9 is mountainous. The back is more challenging with blind shots with severe elevation changes.
