Golf attracts players for many diverse reasons, from the challenge of the game, to the sheer pleasure of playing. But no matter what draws people to the greens, every golf aficionado can agree that the High Sierra Golf Experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe is the vacation opportunity of the season.
Available between May 15 and October 1, 2015, this new offer combines exciting play with luxurious Lake Tahoe accommodations. Golfers enjoy two 18-hole rounds of golf at their choice of either Gray’s Crossing or Old Greenwood, as well as deluxe accommodations at the resort.
Both Gray’s Crossing and Old Greenwood are the region’s finest championship golf courses and are located within 15 minutes of the property, but they offer distinctive experiences. Old Greenwood, a par-72 course designed by Jack Nicklaus, unfolds amid 600 acres of majestic pines. Gray’s Crossing, meanwhile, is certified as only the second Audubon International Gold Signature Sanctuary in all of California, meaning the splendor of the surrounding environment has been meticulously preserved for a game that is breathtaking in both score and scenery.
The potential for play, however, is just the beginning of what makes the High Sierra Golf Experience so compelling among golf packages in Lake Tahoe. This offer also capitalizes on the resort’s Mountain Concierge, which handles all the details of a seamless golf game, from golf club storage, to booking tee times, to sharing valuable insights about the region’s various golfing opportunities. The package also includes golf-cart access and practice balls for each night of a guest’s stay.
While the package offers at least 36 reasons to stay on the course, the resort provides just as many reasons to return. As the only AAA Five Diamond award-winning hotel in Lake Tahoe, the property’s amenities are profound. Guest rooms incorporate gas fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows in a nod to the spectacular setting. Five dining venues incorporate a breadth of gastronomic possibilities, ranging from elegant private dining options at Manzanita to “blues, brews and BBQ” at The Backyard Bar & BBQ. And the renowned spa serves as a destination unto itself, whether guests are looking to ease sore muscles after a day on the links, or wish to indulge in a full day of restoration.
Visitors this summer can also look forward to a full repertoire of outdoor activities, including hiking, mountain biking, guided hikes, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding for a vacation that is as unforgettable as a day on the golf course.
The High Sierra Golf Experience starts at $399 USD per night and is subject to availability. Advance reservations are required to ensure preferences regarding courses and tee times.
