The Dragon Course at Nakoma Golf Resort The Robin Nelson-designed Dragon Course at Nakoma Golf Resort (45 minutes north of Truckee) has mountain vistas that are among the most beautiful you'll find on any mountain course in the country. But don't be fooled by its beauty—the Dragon has become infamous for being a beast of a challenge. Edgewood Tahoe You've seen this one on TV, filled with celebrities playing along- side beautiful Lake Tahoe. Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course is as scenic as it is iconic, mixing mountain and lake views throughout the gorgeous, 18-hole design. If you want to push it to the limits, the back tees measure a whopping 7,529 yards, requiring you to give the course everything you have to shoot a good score. Grizzly Ranch Golf Club Located an hour from Truckee, Grizzly Ranch is a sprawling 1000-acre, par-72 layout designed by Bob Cupp. There are five sets of tees, wide fairways and a mountain-rich landscape with elevations ranging from 4,800 feet to 5,400 feet. As the locals say, Grizzly Ranch is "removed, not remote," as it's near federally protected land and a private community with a limited number of residences.

It's challenging, but we think it's one of the most fun-to-play courses in not just the Sierra Nevada, but all of Northern California. 17 DIGITAL EDITION / G O L F & T R A V E L /
