About Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe

The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, a AAA Five Diamond resort, is nestled midmountain at the ski-centric Northstar California Resort in Truckee. It is located just six miles from downtown Truckee and a half hour from Lake Tahoe, where the Lake Club is an exclusive beachfront hangout with paddleboarding, kayaks and food and drinks included in the daily fee. The Backyard Bar & BBQ and Manzanita, the signature restaurant, serve up tasty fare. A gondola ride from the 170-room hotel leads to the Northstar ski village, which bustles with restaurants, mini-golf, festivals and skating in the summer. The resort offers golf packages to two adjacent courses 12 miles away - the Golf Club at Gray's Crossing and Old Greenwood, site of the PGA Tour's 2020 Barracuda Championship.

Pristine golf experience

Course is well manicured and absolutely beautiful. The fairways are striped criss-cross and generous. The rough beyond the first cut is thick ... but not impossible. Greens are well maintained and have undulations to deal with. I basically ended up using every club in the bag. Also take elevation into consideration when you play here as the ball does travel further.

Try to bake in ample time to use the amazing practice range and greens before you start your round.

Have played courses around the area, this one takes over my #1

Visit the north of Tahoe Golf courses a lot from Bridgeport Ca. Have played Coyote Moon, Old Greenwood, most of the Carson Valley Courses, Incline, Whitehawk Ranch and Grizzly Ranch. Except for my experiences long in the past with Edgewood in Tahoe, Grays Crossing became my favorite very quickly. Loved the layout, the condition for Sept was excellent, pace of play was good. Great day out there.

Other than the smoke and ash from several fires, it was a perfect day

Amazing!

Old Greenwood is fantastic! A guaranteed challenge for a first time players. Additionally I played 1 week prior to their PGA event. Conditions were amazing and difficult with extra thick first and second cut rough and fast greens. Pin placement was evil. The course was buzzing with activity which slightly distracted from the serenity of an absolute picture perfect course. Play this course and then play it many times again, you will enjoy every round. I have not had the opportunity to spend time using off course facilities, however, staff was friendly, helpful, and eager to assist.

Excellent Course

Old Greenwood is in excellent playing conditions. The greens are fast but fair. The tees we played were to long. I recommend playing the tees that fit you best.

Superb experience

This is one of NorCal’s finest offerings.
Great scenic layout, superbly maintained. Great clubhouse and very friendly and welcoming staff. Grass driving range with plenty of room and targets as well as unlimited balls-part of green fee.
Only complaint-pin placements were downright wicked. All in all though a great place to play

Late Afternoon

Everything about the course was exceptional, except my play. We played late...after 4:00pm and the greens were still in great shape. Unfortunately I was in a number of green side bunkers and even they were in shape, considering the lack of rakes during the Covid conditions. I believe they’ll be ready for the PGA at the end of the month!

Worst customer service ever

Booked a round for what I thought was a Saturday, made the mistake of not double checking the date and accidentally booked it for the next day (Wed), got notification I was charged the full $480 for a missed tee time, called the course and spoke with Travis, head iof golf, wanted to make the Saturday tee times (which was an additional $70 ea) and apply the $480 to that, he flat out refused to even budge on any type of negotiation or reverse the charges, if your course needs the money that desperately maybe a review of business practices might be a good idea, worst customer service I have ever experienced in my 45 years in golf
