Ponderosa Golf Course
Ponderosa Golf Course may have a short layout but it features the challenges of a full-length championship course. The golf course sprawls across mountainous terrain that provides plenty of elevation changes throughout. The fairways are lined with towering trees and the greens are undulating, making accuracy a top priority in doing well. There are two dogleg holes and one hole has an elevated green to watch out for. There are also bunkers scattered throughout. The golf course provides excellent short game practice as well as being a great round for beginning to intermediate players. Ponderosa Golf Course also has practice facilities for golfers to use including chipping and putting greens and driving nets.

VERY NICE COURSE STILL CHILLY AT 7;00A.M. BUT PERFECT AT THE TURN
Enjoyable Round - Good Conditions
Very good course conditions, well maintained course. We had a fun round, as the course offers a variety of hole layouts and for a short course, the chance to use most of the clubs in your bag.
A great value in is area, enjoyed the day so much, we came back and played again the next day.
The check in staff said he hated that I used golf now. We rented clubs and was given a bag missing a third of the clubs.
A great 9 hole practice course in Truckee
I played this course many times with my relatives who live in Truckee. They are slightly worse players than I and its hard to judge your play when you are playing down... There are several holes that make no sense at all like the 3rd hole that is straight up over a road.. making it very hard to hit the green unless you have a 7 wood or hybrid. The main holes are boring and the greens are nicely cared for. All in all I like this course for having a nice time with friends, but its not a course you would get serious over.
Great day to play Ponderosa. $10 is amazing price for the Truckee area.
Would have been great if the weather would have cooperated ........34 degrees at tee-off
Early tee time so grass and greens were wet but as the morning wore on it dried up and was a great day. Greens are slow but to be expected this time of year
9 hole hidden gem
Great condition. Greens are a treat! Very enjoyable
Totally enjoyed play Ponderosa
Pretty course, tucked away in the trees at first and then opens up. 9 hole course without much (if any) water hazards. No stunning picturesque views but a really pretty course, in very good condition and a great "feeling" course. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I look forward to playing this course again.
Perfect day for golf
It was a perfect day for golf. I was put in with a friendly group of men and had a great time. The course was awesome. Narrow fairways, fast greens, and a beautiful layout. Need to be precise with your drive or you will find it hard to reach the green in two. Be careful, even if you hit a good drive your shot can bounce o/b. I did not have a good game, but I had a great time.
Ponderosa - A Great Value
For the money I paid for this course, the location, condition, ambiance and mostly where it is, this has to be one of the best deals I have gotten from GN. Surely I will be looking for these deals again and plan to invite and encourage my friends to do the same.
Great for a little 9 hole course! Easy to get in 9 and do everything else for the day.
i played while on vacation to Lake Tahoe. Course was in very good shape. Beautiful scenery & very relaxing atmosphere. I play here whenever I go to Tahoe. Also shot 2 of my lowest rounds.
Lots of locals play and they know what they are doing, not a lot of waiting around, plays quickly. Only OB's are along outside boundaries, so it is forgiving. Very good condition, greens are soft and will be slow in early morning until they dry up.
