This Jack Nicklaus Signature Course burst upon the scene in September 2004, earning rave reviews among players, media and golf experts. Golf Digest currently rates it No. 4 among America’s finest “Upscale Public Courses.” In February 2005, Golf Magazine rated it one of the 10 Best New Public-Access Courses in the Country. The resort community recently became the first Gold Audubon Signature Sanctuary in the state, the highest certification offered by Audubon International. The par-72 masterpiece plays 7,528 yards from the back, or “Nicklaus tees,” with two 5 pars at 600 yards and longer. Three other teeing options make it player friendly for all levels. Winding through Jeffrey pines, along creeks and offering spectacular mountain views, each hole has its own distinct personality making for a memorable round. In 2008, Golf Course Superintendent Association of America and Golf Digest named the Tahoe Mountain Club an environmental leader.
