This course’s design incorporates the magnificent beauty of the area and its natural terrain, including mature trees, constant elevation changes, and streams and ponds offering Mother Nature’s scenic gift and Tom Weiskopf’s imaginative golf challenge. Located in North Lake Tahoe, Lahontan is the first private golf club and gated residential community in the area. The fairways are wide and generous, and the greens are relatively small, rewarding accurately placed approach shots. Every hole has been integrated with the natural terrain, which gives each a distinct personality and challenge. Water comes into play on five holes, and most holes offer risk/reward opportunities. A particularly challenging hole is #2, nicknamed “Gooseneck.” It sits in a picturesque valley flanked on the right by wetlands and a massive 30-yard fairway bunker. In addition, there are towering trees and you’ll find yourself in the wetlands with an errant shot. “Golf Digest” selected it tied for ninth on its list of “Best New Private” courses for 1999.
