Situated within the woodlands of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Tahoe Paradise Golf Course has a hilly landscape covered with towering pines. This short, tight golf course is filled with challenges including tight, narrow fairways and smooth, fast greens. The fairways are also lined with trees and thick cuts of rough and some of there is an occasional sloped green. Tahoe Paradise Golf Course's par-4 holes are said to have severe dogleg fairways and water hazards come into play on two holes. The picturesque scenery provides a relaxing break from the challenges of the golf course. One of the most scenic holes is the par-3 14th with a spectacular view of Mt. Tallac and the surrounding peaks.

We had an afternoon to kill in Tahoe, and found an outstanding Hot Price, so booked it. We did have a "walking rate", but figured no problem since it's an executive length course. Have passed this course for years, but never stopped to play it until yesterday, as the rates are usually very high during the season (we played just after Labor Day)

The pluses (besides the hot price): easy to walk, .nice views, grass was in good shape, several challenging but fun holes.

The minuses : overall slow pace of play, greens in inconsistent/varying shape, very tight layout on a few holes, with trees coming into play on the majority of holes, especially on your approach shots.

Overall had a good time and would return if I can get similar great Hot Price.

My golf buddy and his family could not join us as planned for a week in Lake Tahoe so I booked the least expensive course for my wife and I to play. She hardly plays at all. I expected a glorified backyard golf course. What we got was a well maintained mountain test. Its beautiful with snow capped peaks all around and 7000 feet elevation. The ball does go farther. Most of the holes are 250 to 275 yard par 4s. Your best off using irons off the tee. Think of 17 and 18 at Augusta with those drives between the trees. I don't hit it that straight. (even though I mistakenly tried.) The greens are in good shape with extreme slope so keep it under the hole. I would now bring my golf buddy here first but still play one of the longer courses in the area.

Playing this course repeatedly really makes it a more fun course to play. I would say a tough course for a first timer. Some tough t-shots with some nice long distance drives. Good mix of everything here.

First time playing there. The staff was very friendly. The course is a little challenging if you have a slice. The course is narrow. Had a cart but feel it would be a great course to walk. Would definately play there again.

My family and I found Tahoe Paradise Golf Course several years ago when we decided that South Lake Tahoe would be a perfect place for our summer vacations. We have played golf here on each of our visits and we can't say enough good things about the course...and the staff! The course is beautiful and the staff very friendly and accommodating. The course will challenge any scratch player, but novices will have fun as well. We highly recommend Tahoe Paradise!

This was a fun course, we played the back nine only. It is not a long course, no par fives, more like an executive course.

Tahoe Paradise is not long but does require you to hit the fairway. Green to tee box is close and sometimes too close. Weekend play is not for the faint of heart. You will hear balls rattling around in the forest on many holes. Fun to play just keep your eyes open.
