The Tahoe Reno area may be known for its winters, but spring and early summer offer a wide array of activities at the mountain, the lake and everywhere in between. There are unbelievable waterfall hikes during spring and it’s the opportune time to get out on the water with glassy mornings and warm afternoons. It’s also the season when golf courses reveal their groomed greens to the eagerly awaiting masses.

The region has an abundance of beautiful, but equally as challenging, golf courses. Check out our short list of renowned regional golf courses that are also conveniently located to The Ridge Tahoe.
