Enjoyable Rec Course With Navigational Issues!
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: The newest course (2012) in the Tahoe area starts near the Incline Village Rec Center. There is a large course sign, a donation box, a practice basket across the street and on-street parking as well as parking in the Rec Center's lot. The course has nice rubber teepads, great colored signs and brand new Innova baskets with the yellow rims. Being a new course, everything is still in almost pristine condition. I really appreciated the washer system on the tee signs with the A and B basket positions indicated. That helped me playing here for the first time.
The first two holes play in the lower wooded area of the park. Then you have a long, unmarked hike to # 3. I finally figured out to stay beside the tennis courts all the way. Later, we directed some other lost first timers to the third teepad. Holes 3-10 play in this scattered forrest park section. The holes here were more recreational in nature, with several ACE runs.
The back nine features more brush, more trees, a small creek in play, more challenging holes and another fairly long, confusing walkout after # 14. Luckily, I had hooked up with a local DJ by now and was being guided through. There is a very little bit of elevation to contend with.
Cons: The long walkouts after # 2 and # 14 are always going to be problamatic. Some arrows pointing the way would help the first time players. It's a recreational course. Not as challenging as most others in the area although this could be a pro for many.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed my round here. You're playing in the shade on those hot days. It's relatively flat and easy and a welcome change from the rigors of a No. Tahoe Regional's or a Zephyer's Cove.

Great new, mid-level course

Pros: This is a fun little course that winds around terrain next to the Incline Village Recreation Center and a nearby school. I parked in the recreation center's parking lot and walked back down to hole 1, passing a practice basket along the entrance road.
--Excellent color signs indicating pin position
--Good rubber mat tee pads, which I normally dislike, but were well done
--Variety of shots, but mostly RHBH hyzers, and usually two routes to the pin
--Good use of mandatories
--You can see most of the pins from the tee, or with a short walk down the fairway
Cons: --After playing hole 2, you take a long (3-5 min) walk to tee #3. If you keep the tennis courts on your right as you head up the slope and the creeklet on your left, you'll hit tee #3 at the corner of the very last tennis court.
--After hole #14, you do the reverse walk, but this one you can cross the creeklet and follow it down or stay on the right side. Near a large bridge and some buildings, you'll find the tee for #15
--This is a multi-use area, so beware of dog walkers, trail bikers and joggers
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed playing this course, and played it three days in a row, early in the morning. By 10 AM other disc golfers were showing up. Although most of the holes can be birdied, and you might have an ace run or two (my buddy Scott aced #10 with a forehand on his first time playing the course), it is not a pitch and putt course, which is what I expected given the first two reviews.
The creeklet (not much more than a few feet wide) runs clear but is not deep and never really comes into play unless you have a really errant shot. Not really a chance of losing a disc either.

fun little course
Pros: The Tahoe region gets its ninth course.
Very well made tees and signs
brand spankin new baskets
a whole lot of ace runs
signs guide you to next tee
year round crystal clear creeks in play
Cons: a little tough to navigate at first due to a couple walks between holes 2 and 3 also holes 14 and 15. For the most part it favors rhbh. Very little elevation change.
Other Thoughts: This course is pretty fun and worth playing on your way between Zephyr and Tahoe Vista. There is a 7-11 near by. After hole 2's basket walk up to the left of the tennis courts and keep walking, follow the creek on your left side. Keep walking ,keep walking until you FINALLY pass the last set of tennis courts. The next tee is around the corner of the final tennis courts. After hole 9 heads towards 4's tee and go right across the log bridge to 10's tee. After hole 14 cross the little wood bridge and hang a right and follow the slightly downhill path 6-700 ft to hole 15's tee. This course is brand new and is a nice addition to Tahoe's line up of courses. For sure get a T's burrito after your round. It's next to 7-11 on the main drag in town.
