Lake Tahoe Golf Course, Bijou in full swing; TP to open nine holes

Matt O'Neill

Spring is definitely in the air and local golfers are getting the itch to get out on the local links.

Well, South Shore duffers are in luck.

With Bijou and Lake Tahoe Golf Courses already open and Tahoe Paradise and Edgewood Tahoe opening next week, all four public courses will soon by up and running for all whom want to dust off their sticks and play a round or two.

While Tahoe Paradise is planning to open nine holes Friday, all 18 will be opened next week. The course is charging a reduced rate because of the early season conditions. It is $20 to walk the course and $35 for a cart; later in the season the rates jump to $35 and $50, respectively.

Just down U.S. Highway 50, Lake Tahoe Golf Course has all 18 open and is also charging reduced rates until mid-June. Rates are $30 to walk and $40 for a cart, with both rates including a small lunch. In June the rates jump to $47 and $67.

Bijou Municipal Course has been open since the third week of April. Green fees are $12 for locals.

Edgewood plans to open on May 10, but Whittell High will host a 3A-2A tournament starting at 11 a.m. Friday.
