The only thing missing at Clear Creek is a clubhouse to match the five-star course and 10-star surroundings.

Plans are well underway to build one.

Clear Creek is another successful merger of golf and wilderness by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. The course - located 45 minutes south of Reno - flows beautifully up and down a remote mountain site. Tall pines and boulder piles frame the holes. Although most of the elevation changes are subtle, the third hole drops nearly 200 feet from the tee to the fairway. Our group counted 13 seconds before one ball landed.

The bunkers look like they were dug by a small grenade blast. They're deep with rough edging, the perfect natural look. The wild greens will torture you - in a fun way.

This isn't your typical mountain course in so many ways. First of all, famed designer Bill Coore really doesn't do mountain courses, but except for one highly elevated tee, Clear Creek Tahoe doesn't have a big mountain feel to it. Don't get me wrong, though, the views are spectacular, it's just that there's not a ton of elevation change on the course, just one good hole after another in perfect condition. The greens may be the most challenging part of the golf course with a few buried elephants, fall-offs and some pretty severe greenside bunkers. It's also fairly walkable with most of the greens and tees pretty close together.
