Northstar California Resort | Truckee, CA

Known as Lake Tahoe's Best Value Golf Course.

Lake Tahoe’s Most Unique Mountain Layout

The Northstar California™ Resort golf course is an 18-hole, par-72 (men and women) course that makes every guest feel welcome. From beautiful scenic views to two unique nines, Northstar™ Resort’s pro-rated golf course maintains a comfortable feeling that will challenge golfers’ skills and appeal to their senses. The 18-hole golf course was designed by Robert Muir Graves, legendary landscape architect. His designs are notorious for integrating rugged, wooded sites with wavy bunkers and putting surfaces. The result of a Graves creation is a very active looking course. His unique features create a flow of movement in the land, qualities golfers will experience while playing at Northstar Resort. The course plays up to 6,820 yards. Our course offers 5 tee locations and carries a rating of 73. Northstar Resort offers helpful pin placement sheets and a guide to every hole on the scorecard. It’s the perfect spot for a group outing with the meadow nine being very playable and the mountain nine (back nine) yielding a challenge for all levels.

Our Point of View

THE LINKS WITH A LANDSCAPE – 18 holes, 6,781 yards, 4 tee locations, and a 72.4 NCGA rating – all up at 6,000 feet, allowing you to hit the ball 10-15 yards farther than normal (not bad, right?).

Get ready to grip it and rip it on the open, links-style front “Meadow Nine,” and then dial things in on the tree-lined fairways and small greens of the famous back “Mountain Nine.”
