Tahoe's Best 18 hole Resort Golf Value. Designed by Robert Muir Graves, Northstar California's 18-hole, par-72 golf course incorporates Tahoe's mountainous landscapes with Martis Valley's open meadow into two distinct 9-hole settings that will both challenge a golfer's skills and appeal to his and her senses. The result is a vibrant and exciting golf course, whose features create a challenging flow that seamlessly moves in and over the natural terrain. The Meadow Nine (holes 1-9) opens to a links-style course, allowing golfers to "grip it and rip it." The Mountain Nine (holes 10-18) demands precise shot-making through tree-lined fairways and approach shots to small greens. Either way that you play it, the course at Northstar California continues to offer Tahoe's Best Resort Golf Experience. Playing up to 6,781 yards, the Northstar Golf Course offers four tee locations and carries a rating of 72.4 from the Northern California Golf Associationp>.

A tale of two nines Great course esp. Because front and back nine are completely different. Front is open meadow; back is through the forest. Only issue was that greens were silly slow. Played 36 it was so much fun. August 12, 2014
course was in great shape Only complaint was the greens were very slow. They said they had rain recently. However the ground was not soft and the sand in the bunkers was fine. Is a fun course , with the distinct changes between the front and back 9's. August 12, 2014
Fun course and good value Can't beat the value especially for a twilight round. August 8, 2014
Northstar Course was in excellent shape, better than most courses in the bay area. tight fairways 2nd nine with trees kept things quite interesting. many holes can't see green from tee box, hence need to play course to get the drift of where to land the ball. Quite challenging but great fun. August 7, 2014
Rain made it a challenge Nice course. It rained most of our round and made play slow. Still enjoyed the course, it has plenty of challenges. If you don't hit them straight, bring plenty of balls. August 5, 2014
Excellent Time I usually play this course three times on my summer visits to Tahoe and did so last week. If anything, the course was in the best shape I can remember. Don't believe all the talk about the back side being more challenging, however. The meadow front nine plays longer, has more rough and is more open to the elements. It scores about two strokes tougher for me. The back side is a wonderful trek through the forest with very gettable holes if you can keep the ball in front of you. The last six holes are the best string of holes on any course in California in my opinion. Instead of forking over $250 for Edgewood or $200 for Coyote Moon, go pay $70 at Northstar and have a nice dinner on the lake. You will feel a lot better about yourself. The clubhouse is very cool at Northstar too with some nice selection of draft beers after the round. August 1, 2014
Beautiful and Friendly We played 27 holes on a beautiful day. The staff was great (one of the cart guys gave us an egg carton of found balls) and the course was in beautiful shape. Be aware this is like playing two different courses; the front 9 is wide open and easy. The back 9 is in the woods, narrow and there are blind shots. We got a $39 rate on golf now so I rated the value as excellant. At the standard rate it's still a pretty good deal comapred to ANYTHING at Lake Tahoe. July 25, 2014
Great Buy. Just be prepared for a narrow back nine b Very enjoyable round of golf. Back nine much more challenging. A bit slow on back nine. Marshall could speed things up July 22, 2014
