The Championship Course at Incline Village will challenge golfers of all levels, and leave even scratch golfers breathless with a slope rating that tops 140. Combining amazing scenery with demanding golf action, the Championship Course is high on the list of traveling golfers looking for the best from their High Sierra golf package.

Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., the course received a facelift in 2003, courtesy of golf course architect Kyle Phillips. The nearly $5 million renovation reinvigorated the course, which demands accuracy, as well as giving players risk-reward opportunities over trees and bunkers.

With two golf courses - the Championship and Mountain courses - Incline Village offers something for all level of golfer, and offers outstanding service and conditioning, as well as top-notch practice facilities, making it a highlight for a High Sierra golf vacation.

Beautiful course in a high altitude setting overlooking Lake Tahoe.Greens somewhat inconsistent but well maintained. Fairways and tee boxes groomed nicely.Club rental was pricy ($75.00). Paired with a twosome.Pace average (4hrs)

Staff friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, a wedding party on a Monday evening decided to take photos on the 18th green as sunset was approaching . My group patiently waited but to no avail. I approached in my cart and requested they allow us and golfers behind to finish.I was cursed at and told to go ... .myself.I and my

playing partners were harrassed by the drunken wedding quests and bridal party.I could not finish the hole. They even threw the flag into the sandtrap. Reported incident to employee who said manager had left. Spoke with him on the phone. He half heartedly apologized and promised to get back to me, which he failed to do. I will not play here again until the management has adult supervision for its weddings.A Monday , really.

We played this course a little early after a bad winter but it was still in amazing shape. There were several holes we had to stop and take pictures of the incredible views and the streams running through the course are beautiful. The course is challenging but still a lot of fun. I would definitely go back.

The course was very nice and in good condition for the most part. Most of the course was cart path only, but it was a harsh winter. The bunkers had very nice sand in them. The only real negative I saw was the greens were super slow. The guy I was paired with said they are not usually like that, so I will take him at his word. All in all a very good course, I would play again.

Tree lined course with stunning views of Lake Tahoe. The course was in good shape and the greens were smooth and tricky. Elevation changes, particularly on the par 3’s made it difficult.

Now one of my favourite courses.

Had early time and was able to tee off 10 minutes early and play as a twosome. Tees, fairways and greens were in excellent shape this early in the golf season despite one of the heaviest snowfalls in years in the Tahoe region. Played in four hours despite the twosome in front of us spending more time in the woods than on the fairways. Like the layout: some left doglegs, some right, some long, some shorter. One of my favorites.

Beautiful course in the pines and mountains, but not kind if you stray from the fairways. Quite a challenge for this old guy, playing from the tips. I think I could improve 15 strokes if I palyed it again with new found course knowledge.

This course setting is ideal for the golfer who has some directional skill and wants a great day in the park. Holes can be tricky if you don't hit it in the fairway, so have three of four extra balls handy. All in all, it was a very memorable experience. I love the up and down holes in the tall pines. Greens were semi fast, and probably will be faster when the weather warms up.

This was a great day and a great course. The day started off with a great experience with the marshall, who made us laugh and gave us some good course knowledge. We played around 2:30 and the course was pretty empty. Played with my wife who doesn't play often, but can play a little bit and she did fine. The cart GPS is helpful since there are a number of blind shots.

Course can give you all you want the further back you go. Need to be able to be pretty accurate off the tee if you are going to play from back there. I played the members blue/white combo and it was plenty of course. Greens were hard and fast so make sure you roll a couple before you play. Can't wait to play again I want to play this again to see if i can score better.

Overall it was a great experience and want to play it again next time i'm in the area.

I really enjoy playing this course and have done so 3 times. However, each time we go the greens are just not up to standards. They are quite large but there are always spots that either need grass or just beat up. However, I will play this course any time I am in the area and over look the greens because it is a beautiful course with great views of the Lake.

They kept the pace of play going without being irritating. They definitely wanted to make sure that golfers enjoyed their day and we did. I would highly recommend this course.

Unless you're an 8-handicap or less, play the white tees. You'll thank me. The course is difficult enough from those tees because of its uphill holes at the finish of the round and the river that always seems to be lurking on six holes.

The surrounding houses and development do little to distract from the beautiful alpine setting. The restaurant is good enough that non-golfers stop by to dine on the patio. All in all, a good experience from the first tee to the 19th hole.

Beautiful course. Great scenery, well worth playing. Fairways were in great condition, sand traps for the most part were in good condition and greens had just been sanded for the winter which made putting difficult, but this I knew going in, I came to play the course for the first time. Have to say the pace of play was slow due to no carts on fairways and we did have a group ahead of us that were extremely slow. The price to play normally is out of my range but I got a great deal on golfnow, the reason I went, glad I did. If you don't mind paying 3 figures this is a great course to play. I would love to play this course when conditions are better but unfortunately it is out of my range. Will wait for another good deal in the future. I do highly recommend this course though.

Beautiful course even though they were getting ready for winter. Greens and fairways were sanded but the view were amazing.

Would have been nice to knwo "cart path only" before setting up tee time, altough they did have aan airation warning for the greens.
