Incline Village Championship and Mountain Courses Now Open
With the warmer weather finally arriving in Incline Village, we have pulled out the golf clubs for what we hope will be a long and sunny golf season for all.
Our team at Borelli Architecture in Incline Village loves to golf when time allows. And in that spirit, we thought you be interested in an update from the Incline Village Championship and Moutnain Golf Courses.
And, following that update, we’ve shared a very useful article about early season golf tips, written by Kyle Thornburg, Incline Village Golf Courses Tournament Coordinator/Assistant Golf Pro. that is posted on their website.
LAKE TAHOE GOLF COURSE TEE TIMES NOW AVAILABLE
One of our favorite golf courses in the region is the Incline Village Championship Course which continues to receive awards from the top golf publications aroudn the USA. And with good reason. The views of Lake Tahoe alone are worth the price for round of 18 holes here in the High Sierra.
Right now it’s “golf path only” access yet with some warmer temperatures in the forecast the maintenance crew expects the entire course will be accessible by carts in the not so distance future.
Up the road a bit is the spectacular Incline Village Mountain Course. If you have never enjoyed a round of golf at this 18-hole Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed course, this is the year to do so. It’s the highest altitude course in our state which in theory means that your ball will go much farther in the clear, crisp air of the High Sierra!
There’s also a new team in charge that includes Director of Golf Darren Howard, and Head Golf Professional at the Mountain Course Ashley Wood. Read more about both in the full press kit.
EARLY SEASON GOLF TIPS
By Kyle Thornburg
The golf season has arrived! Here are a few tips to remember when getting back in to the swing of things:
- Always remember to stretch before taking those first swings. For those that are coming from the warmer climates it is especially important to stretch your muscles and loosen up on our cold mornings here in Tahoe.
- Take your time on the driving range before playing that first round. Make sure to start with the shorter irons (i.e. Pitching, Wedge or Sand Wedge) and hit short shots to concentrate on the contact of the ball.
- Don’t push it too hard on your first round. Playing just 9 holes is a great way to warm up for the season. The Mountain Course offers 9 holes anytime and The Championship Course offers 9 holes after 5:30pm. Both options are a great way to get a feel for your game and get warmed up for the upcoming season.
- The weather is always changing in our area so it’s a good idea, especially in the early season, to keep a light jacket or sweater in your golf bag. You can always peel it off if the sun comes out but you will be thankful you have it on colder mornings or windy days.
If want to get some private lessons, or need more information and tee times on your calendar, just call 775 832 1146. There’s a great team of pros ready to help you get your golf dame on this summer.
Finally, at Borelli Architecture, we take great pride in designing homes to fit your lifestyle. If you’re a golf enthusiast and always wanted to build a home on golf course, we highly recommend that you take a good look at the new Clear Creek Development and Golf Resort in Carson City, NV which is just a short scenic drive from our achitecture office here in Incline Village, NV.
