Golfing for families in North Lake Tahoe

There are plenty of things to do for families in Lake Tahoe in summertime, and one of our favorites is playing golf in Squaw Valley. The Family Lake Tahoe Golf Special at the Links at Squaw Creek makes a traditional game of golf much more accessible for the little putters in your group. 

Tee off from 5:30 p.m. all summer long on the Links at Squaw Creek with the affordable Family Lake Tahoe Golf Special. For just $40 per adult, your family can play the front nine from the family tees - just 150 feet from the green. Children under 17 are free when accompanied by an adult and rental clubs are half price. Children's rental clubs are available.

Whether your kids have never played before, are just getting into the sport, or are eager to swing their clubs at every opportunity, the Family Lake Tahoe Golf Special at the Links at Squaw Creek makes for a great evening outdoors enjoying Squaw Valley.

When you're done, head over to Sandy's Pub for a casual dinner, then roast some s'mores by the fire. Bingo! Perfect summer evening in Lake Tahoe (and all without getting in your car once).

How to spend one more day in Lake Tahoe

If you are one of those Americans who leaves a few earned vacation days on the table every year, let us help you out. We have ten awesome ideas for how to spend one more day connecting with your family and friends, one more day taking care of yourself, or just one more day away from your workplace. Because you don't want to look back and say, "boy, I wish I would have spent one more day working."

1. Rent a boat and get out on Lake Tahoe. Then jump off the boat and go for a swim. D.L. Bliss State Park is a great spot for this. If you kayak south from the beach, look for the rope swing. Pull your kayak up onto a boulder, climb up the rope swing, and let loose. Repeat. Pure summertime freedom.

2. Explore one of the beaches on Tahoe's East Shore. Sand Harbor State Park and Nevada Beach State Park are both incredibly gorgeous with excellent swimming areas and magnificent views across the lake at the West Shore's massive peaks.  

3. Play another round of golf. North Lake Tahoe is chocked full of 18-hole championship golf courses. You need to play at least three rounds to get the full scope of High Sierra mountain golf.

4. Stay over Sunday night so you can rent a bike and cruise down to Tahoe City for the Sunday night free concerts at Commons Beach. Have a picnic dinner, dance a little, and then cruise back along the bike path.

5. Hike up to Shirley Lake from the base of Squaw Valley, take a dip, and then take the Aerial Tram back to the Village for happy hour.

6. Plan a getaway around one of the awesome summer festivals in the Village at Squaw Valley. Or come for the fun mid-week events, like Bluesdays, Truckee Thursdays, and the Outdoor Summer Movie Series.

7. Take a Family Fly Fishing Class with Matt Heron Fly Fishing right here at Resort at Squaw Creek.

8.  Explore the unique shops in Historic Downtown Truckee. Local artists are plentiful in the Tahoe area and this is a great place to find them! Plus, there are plenty of tasty spots to grab a bit to eat.

9. Take a mountain bike tour of Tahoe with Tahoe Mountain Guides. They can set you up with gear, and show you some of the best trails in the area while catering to your skill level.

10. Spent your whole trip outdoors? Treat yourself to a day at Spa at Squaw Creek to get all cleaned up, refreshed, and ready to go back to the rest of your life.

What would you do with one more day in Lake Tahoe?

Opening Day on the Links at Squaw Creek in North Lake Tahoe

It's Opening Day on the Links at Squaw Creek (psst - tee times are just $59!) and this North Lake Tahoe golf course is in fantastic shape! While the golf will be excellent again this year, we wanted to take a moment to address some of the factors that make the Links at Squaw Creek one of California's most environmentally sound golf courses.

In preparation for this year's Tahoe golf season in midst of the California drought, the ValleyCrest grounds team has been busy upgrading our sprinkler systems and enhancing the way we landscape in a continued effort to lessen our environmental footprint.

We have replaced approximately 80 sprinklers with Toro 835 Adjustable Arc sprinklers, which will allow us to water only targeted areas (and avoid watering cart paths). We have also installed 30 new Toro VP Satellites which allow for complete control over each sprinkler head from a central location. 

We are now using drip irrigation for our landscaping and have spread bark mulch to keep water in and weeds out. Drip irrigation feeds water directly to the plants and not to an entire area, which reduces our over all water usage.

We have always used a minimum of organic fertilizer, and nothing else, to help green up the course. So there is no toxic runoff into Squaw Creek or our ponds, which are stocked with trout for the fly-fishing program.

With these irrigation upgrades and the weather last weekend, the course is ready for another great season of high mountain golf. 

Tee times are $59 through June 7, 4-Packs are valid any time and are just $199, or Unlimited Season Passes are just $619. See you on the tee box!

Things to do over Memorial Day weekend in North Lake Tahoe

Memorial Day weekend is the official start of summer in North Lake Tahoe and there is plenty to do at the Resort at Squaw Creek to kick things off.

The Links at Squaw Creek opens for play on May 20. Tee times are just $59 and the course is in great shape. Nike rental clubs are available in the golf shop. 

Six Peaks Grille opens for the summer with a seasonal menu, signature cocktails, and the first of our 25th Anniversary mixology dinners on May 24.

The Made in Tahoe Festival at Squaw Valley features dozens of local artisans, food vendors, and musicians. 

When you're not out and about, there are plenty of family friendly activities to keep you busy right here at Squaw Creek. 

The fly fishing is terrific right now - learn a new sport with Matt Heron Fly Fishing. Cast in our two private ponds or venture out onto local waters.
