There couldn't be a finer complement to the natural landscape at Lahontan than the remarkable talents of golf course designer Tom Weiskopf. Gently molding the course to the natural elements, Tom deftly blended classical and contemporary styles to create one of the most stunningly beautiful and purely enjoyable courses ever designed. The legendary beauty of Lake Tahoe has finally met its master. The result is a golf course of distinction that will stand the test of time.
A winner of twenty PGA and Senior tour titles and five foreign championships, including the Senior U.S. Open and British Open, Tom's invaluable golf knowledge and design experience make him the perfect caretaker for Lahontan's breathtaking site. Tom's distinctive touch can be found at courses such as the TPC in Scottsdale, a favorite of both professional and recreational golfers. This remarkable design skill has placed many of Tom's courses in the U.S. and the World's Top 100 courses including Double Eagle in Ohio, Troon and Forest Highlands in Arizona and Loch Lomond in Scotland.
In crafting Lahontan's 18-hole championship course, Tom used his personal mixture of skill, imagination and an uncanny ability to integrate the natural setting into a distinctive and challenging design which resulted in a truly exceptional golf experience for players of all abilities.
Tom Weiskopf has further enhanced the Lahontan golf experience with a nine hole Par-3 course. He has already set the standard for Par 3 courses with his benchmark design at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.
Tom has designed Lahontan's courses to be continually engaging by encouraging players to employ new strategies, making it always rewarding, not repetitious.
Tom considers Lahontan to be the best site in the U.S. he's ever had to work with. He also said Lahontan's design will reward a properly executed shot and fairly penalize a poor one making it a challenging and exceptionally playable course. His expertise was put to work at Lahontan with a Par-3 course that features three acres of lakes, wetlands, breathtaking vistas, and a double-green on the ninth hole. It's the perfect playing ground to enjoy the game with the family, practice on a late summer evening, or simply play a quick round with friends.
Evocative of older, traditional clubs such as the San Francisco Golf Club, Lahontan is not a target golf course, nor does it have a lot of long forced carries. The generous fairways and large greens will allow golfers to keep their ball in play. Lahontan's courses are special because every time you play, you see something new. It's unique design and attention to detail magnificently married with its beautiful natural surrounding ranks Lahontan among the finest golf courses in America.
