Northstar Golf Course

Known as Lake Tahoe's Best Value Golf Course
Designed by world-renowned golf course architect Robert Muir Graves, this par-72 course set high in the Sierras is golf like you’ve never experienced before. From scenic vistas and panoramic lookouts to traditional golf putting greens and winding fairways, Northstar offers one of the most unique golf experiences in Lake Tahoe. Famously known for the tail of two nines, the front nine showcases a traditional linx style 9 hole through Martis Valley and the back nine is set in a challenging mountain golf experience with tree lined fairways and smaller putting greens.

Before heading to the 10th tee box, grab a few items for your lunch box and refuel for the back 9. Call in your specialty sandwich, made-to-order wrap, or other items before teeing off on the 9th hole and we’ll have them ready and waiting when you arrive – because no one can hit the long ball without lunch.
