Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course is probably the most famous golf course in the entire greater Reno-Lake Tahoe area. It's routinely rated among the Top 100 golf courses in America and its scenery is second to none. Edgewood plays out along the sparkling blue waters of Lake Tahoe and the towering pines of a big forest. Yet, it's right in the heart of Lake Tahoe, behind many of the casinos, a very quick drive from many of the hotels. George Fazio designed Edgewood. This was back in the days when his nephew Tom Fazio was just a lowly apprentice working for him. You can certainly see the Fazio drama in Edgewood. Particularly on the back nine and a very memorable closing stetch. No. 16 has you shooting straight toward the lake and the snow-capped mountains looming beyond it. No. 17 is a par 3 that runs right along the lake. On a nice summer day, boats will be out there bobbing a quick throw from the tee with sunbathers on their decks. You probably never had that type of distraction on a golf course before. Edgewood Tahoe is unique like that. There are holes with plenty of up and downs, holes with views of the Tahoe main casino strip and holes where you feel like you've been swallowed up by the forest. Edgewood Tahoe can be an amphitheater of tall trees and a showcase of the lake that gives the town its name and brings many of its tourists. No wonder some non-golfers are still drawn to Edgewood Tahoe's parking lot just to get some of the best lake views in town.

Outstanding architecture with lake views to match

Top line: come for the lake views and high national ranking, stay for the unique architecture and variety of shots

Had the pleasure of playing an early morning round at Edgewood and was blown away. From the obvious of the lake views and exceptional conditions to the subtle of the way different holes required a wide variety of shots, and how deceptive the greens are. The way the routing cuts through pines, and ends up right along the Lake it is a true delight!

Bottom line: worth traveling to Tahoe just to play this course.

Terrible customer service

Expensive course that we all looked forward to playing on a bachelor weekend trip. A freak weather storm came through at the beginning of our round cutting it way short. Requested at least a partial refund so that we can reinvest in playing the course at a later date. Tried getting ahold of Randy, the course manager, and never received a call back. For $260, you'd think they'd give you some of that money back for a terrible time with terrible weather so we can reschedule another day to play. Customer service was terrible when I initially asked for it after ending my round. I'll never play there again and word of mouth on my end will go a long way.

Such a gorgeous challenge

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.

Love the lake the Tahoe

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.

Great course on Lake Tahoe

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.

Spectacular settings

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.

Nice views but over rated

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

Check one off my golf bucket list! OUTSTANDING!!

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!

Classic golf in pristine setting

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.
