After several years of transition and construction, Edgewood Tahoe is ready to take its place among the best resorts in golf. The new luxurious lodge, scheduled to open June 14, gives golfers the ultimate place to relax on the southern shores of Lake Tahoe. Last year, Edgewood Tahoe revealed its new ninth hole, its fourth hole directly on the lake. The lodge and its new lawn (replacing the old parking lot) are a part of this new great scene.

Playing the course never gets old. I've still not solved a few holes, namely the risk-reward par-5 18th hole. Someday I hope to be putting for eagle like the celebrities in the American Century Championship do every July.

I debated long and hard if Edgewood deserved five-star status. I wasn't blown away by the entire collection of holes. The par 3s were all similar shots - at least from the white tees we played - and the parade of dogleg rights was a bit of overkill.

Then I started adding up the other pluses - 1, An amazing clubhouse with a great patio for post-round drinks; 2, Challenging greens as fast as I've ever played; 3, A beautiful setting with towering pines and snow-capped mountains as a backdrop; 4, A televised tournament, the American Century Championship, that attracts plenty of A-list athletes and celebrities; and 5, Three finishing holes on some of the most expensive real estate in America - Lake Tahoe.

That adds up to a magical golf experience that can't be replicated anywhere. That's the definition of bucket-list golf.

What a buetiful course off the shores of Lake Tahoe. They play the American Centuary celebrity pro golf tournament. The course has been open since 1968 and is truly the eighth wonder of the world. The courses facilities and resort is very nice right on the California/Nevada state line. The course is was in great shape. The course layout isn't anything amazing but the lake being right there is obviously great. The greens where fast and I loved the beaches right there on the lake. The clubhouse is buetiful and the staff will shine your shoes and ask if you need anything. With green fees esceeding 250$ you just definitely play in the off season. Definitely reccomend doing a stay and play at the resort.

Overall one of my favorite courses in the Lake Tahoe area.

really enjoyed the layout . really good par 5s with elevated greens . long challenging par 3s . greens are really tricky and super firm . aim for the front you get a good bit of release . worth the money in my opinion.

Up there with pebble beach and Samoset. One drawback were the four guys in front is playing from the wrong tees for their skill level which caused our round to approach five fours! Expected to lose many balls with all the water. But the fairways are generously proportioned and lost only one ball when I went pin hunting and just missed and bounced up into water by a green.

Greens were not consistent, holes 8&9 had very slow greens, the balance of the greens were moderate. Very pretty views of mountains and Lake Tahoe.. Fairways cut very short and roll a long way making drives and fairway shots go further.

Yes, greens 8&9 were bad. But starter explained they had been cut too short for the American century pro am in July. They're coming back as we will one day

This is one of the finest golf courses I have had the opportunity to play! For the green fee it is still fantastic! Don't know that I will ever play a more senic golf course! The greens are perfect!

I still don't think this course gets its just due. Laid out in one of the most stunning settings in the world, Edge Tahoe is one of my all-time favorites. I hear from time to time that the layout isn't that special, but I remember every hole from start to finish. All the par 3 and par 5s are entirely different from one another, which is rare on any golf course. The 16th, for example, with the tree in the middle and a series of difficult greenside bunkers opening up to Lake Tahoe, is one of the best par 5s in the world. Add in excellent conditioning during peak season, a great clubhouse and those terrific brats at the turn, and you've got a world-class golf experience.

There is a reason the celebs love playing Edgewood Tahoe: seems like dang near every hole is dogleg right, making it a slicer's dream.

But in all seriousness, the setting couldn't be better. It's a classic father-and-son Fazio design that showcases spectacular Tahoe views and tall pines. The clubhouse dining and bar area is superb, and the cart gals know how to make a fine bloody mary. I will never visit the south shore in the summertime without stopping by here, even if it's just for a drink at the clubhouse.

It's really a perfect resort course (even if it's not technically at a resort) minutes from all the big south shore casino hotels.

i love this course, i have played it multiple times. Its in great shape always at least when i have played it, but it is a bit of money to play. I would say if you have not played it, its worth it to go play.
