Pros: This course is amazing!! beautiful views, Great layout, lots of trees, and nice baskets. EXTREME elevation changes make this course great to play and get some great excerise. Talked to some locals and was told alot of people dont play it because of the mountains, but dont listen. The uphill walking is a small price to pay to play this amazing course.
Cons: Course was a little tough to navigate, could use a few more signs, other than that nothing.
Other Thoughts: I played this course at sunset after already playing 3 other courses that day, so I was a little beat. Wish I had more time to play again. Dont pass up this one if your in the area!

Pros: Masterful course design which incorporates the best that the landscape has to offer: views of the lake, huge granite boulders around tees and pins, awesome trees, and elevation. The lake is only a 5 minute walk from the course, and the west facing beach is one of the nicest anywhere on the planet. Swimming is awesome in the summer. The course starts at a park where there are BBQ facilities, easy places to fill water bottles, and there are horseshoe pits, beach volleyball, tennis courts, and softball fields (good place to get warm)
Cons: none. This place is awesome. The course designer is on a spree right now up in Tahoe, with the opening of Tahoe Vista last year and the announcement of the building of a course in Tahoe Donner this year.
Other Thoughts: Holes 10 and 15 are among my all time favorites. Holes 3, 4, 5, and 13 are downright nasty.

Best in Tahoe
Pros: A disc golf dedicated course in a mountain side park on the shores of Lake Tahoe. A must play! Only a couple of unreachable holes (350+). Most holes are short(-300), but tough birdies. It weaves amongst a redwood forest, with huge rocks, amazing views of Lake Tahoe, and lots of down hill holes. A challenge for all skill levels. Tee signs and rubber mats.
Cons: Snow covered in winter(late Nov- late Apr). Be prepared for a hike. Plays about 3 hours per round. You Must watch your discs closely! 'till they land! The Manzanita bushes make it tough to see where your disc lies, but they are not so thick that you'll lose a disc in them. It's best to wear pants here(but don't worry, It doesn't get too hot wearing pants in the summer, because the course stays very shaded). Bad drives are penalized and long approach shots are extra tough due to little or no run-up room in the bushes.
Other Thoughts: Follow "Next Tee" signs and beaten paths. Only 6, 10, & 12 have alternate(short) tee pads. This is an amazing, creatively designed course with good tee signs and rubber pads. The park/course is well maintained and has a great finishing 18th hole. Located behind(in) the Zephyr Cove Park on the South-West shores of Lake Tahoe. Turn off the HWY 50 at the Fire Station(close to zephyr cove beach and boat launch), and its the 1st right turn into the park. Just a couple of miles up the road from the South Lake State Line Amenities.
