Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course: Celebrities' scenic playground on Lake Tahoe

STATELINE, Nev. -- Maybe you can't sing "SexyBack" like Justin Timberlake or dance "The Carlton" like Alphonso Ribeiro. You probably can't whiz touchdown passes like Dan Marino and John Elway or hit it flush like Jack Wagner. The truth is your swing probably looks more like Charles Barkley than Rick Rhoden.

No matter, you can play where the celebrities play at the gorgeous Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course .

Edgewood Tahoe -- a George Fazio design located in one of America's most pristine settings -- is again gearing up to host the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship. The tournament attracts 80 ex-athletes and Hollywood stars who will compete July 19-24 for their share of a $600,000 purse. It will be televised July 22-24 by NBC Sports.

As beautiful as the shores of Lake Tahoe look on TV, they are even more impressive in person. The lake is visible from more than a half dozen holes and fully in play on the final three holes. The construction of The Lodge has tweaked the eighth hole and pushed the new ninth hole right up to the lake as well.

The layout is a slicer's dream with a handful of dogleg rights. Stately pines line the fairways, leading to elevated greens guarded by bunkers. These twisting greens are kept lightning fast. Golf Advisor ranked Edgewood Tahoe second among the nation's top casino courses . Before you leave, be sure to stop by Brooks' Bar & Deck, one of the best patios in golf, for a drink and the views.

The new lodge, currently under construction, is scheduled to open in June 2017 with 154 luxury guest rooms, a health spa, bistro-style restaurant and conference center. Future plans include an additional 10 cabins consisting of up to four residences each along the eighth and ninth fairways.
