Golfer’s Choice: Championship Course, Edgewood top-ranked at Tahoe

Staff Report


INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – Golfers who play at Lake Tahoe recently ranked two courses in the the top 50 on the Golfers’ Choice 2022 list.

Over 320,000 golfers submitted feedback to rank the top 50 out of over 3,000 public courses in the United States and Incline Village’s Championship Course ranked No. 17 while Edgewood Tahoe in Stateline was No. 32.

A golf course needed at least 10 reviews to be eligible for the list, according to GolfPass.

In addition to the overall ranking, golfers assessed courses in several subcategories including conditions and layout. Out of 25 courses, the Championship Course ranked No. 2 for conditions and No. 3 for layout.

“What an honor it is to be included in the Top 50 US Public Courses,” said Championship Course Director of Golf and Community Services Darren Howard in a news release. “I have played several of the Top 50 courses and we are extremely excited to be included with these great courses. To finish No. 17 overall, No. 2 in course conditions and No. 3 in top layouts is very rare and just proves that we have an incredible team here that provides an incredible golf experience daily.”

These awards were based on real user reviews from golfers all over the world. Courses were required to be a publicly-accessible (including resort and semi-private) golf course.

Amisk8er, a golfer on GolfPass, summed it up with their review about the Incline Village Championship Golf Course when they said, “I love playing golf in Tahoe, but this was the first time I got to play Incline, and I wasn’t disappointed. Everything about this course from start to finish is top notch and worth the money. Upon first glance, it appears to be like any other tree-lined mountainous course, however as you play through you begin to feel the difference. Each hole has something to it, and once you’re done you feel like you’ve been on a real adventure.”

GolfPass commenter “bradwheeler” gave Edgewood high marks, “I have played this course about 30 times over the past 30 years. Never disappointed. It just rocks!!! Great, great track. I suggest walking it to get the most out of it. Just seems more beautiful when I walk it.”

Jeff Clouthier, grounds superintendent at the Incline courses, including the Mountain Course, said, “It is very impressive and testament to our team to be ranked No. 2 in course conditions, especially for a high elevation golf course. Being in the mountains, the courses need to be able to withstand harsh winter conditions and bounce back from damage done from ice and snow mold. Our team takes pride in maintaining these courses to offer the best conditions throughout the entire golf season.”
