Edgewood Tahoe one of the most beautiful courses in America
I’ve played some beautiful golf courses – the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, Richard B. Russell in Georgia to name just two – and the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline, Nevada is right up there with them.
It’s 6,000 feet above sea level and surrounded by the Sierra Nevada Mountains, with Lake Tahoe thrown in as part of the deal.
The lake itself is in full view from the clubhouse, but only comes into full, glorious view toward the latter part of the course itself, but it’s worth it. The green at the 16th and the whole of the par-3 17th have to be two of the loveliest holes in the world.
The course itself is a treat as well, a pretty tough play from the back tees, certainly, and even from the middle blue and white tees. The scenery does everything it can to get your mind off your game.
It’s a great way to distract yourself from the gambling at the casinos in Stateline, Nevada, with all sorts of wildlife roaming the grounds, including the coyote my group saw leaping up a tree in a failed effort to catch a squirrel for dinner.
Look for the full review on this splendidly scenic course coming soon.

I'm glad you finally got of that flat, boring Florida golf and made it to a real destination though, Old Mac.
Consider it a warmup for my full review, a masterly portrait in the tradition of the great nature and golf writers, coming soon.
