The Tahoe Vista Disc Golf Course is an 18 hole disc golf course in North Lake Tahoe that is fairly new. It’s a great course with a lot of elevation change and some tight holes winding through evergreen forest. Expect a decent hike when playing at this course. Though not official, I’m seeing this course also being called “Lake of the Sky Disc Golf Course” on web searches now.

The scenery is almost unrivaled for a disc golf course, at least of the ones I’ve personally visited. You get a few great views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains, and the terrain on the whole course is a forest of pine trees with an untouched feel. There are a couple exceptions, with a few holes built around what amounts to a garbage pit, or lake might be a better description.

The course is very challenging with a number of holes that you can’t see where the basket is even after walking forward a bit. The signage here, presumably because it’s a new course and in, or bordering a national forest, could be better. The last time I went there were what amounted to computer printouts of a very rough map at each hole, though many were missing. It’s a course that just might steal your favorite disc if you don’t keep a close eye or shoot with accuracy.

I more frequently visit South Lake Tahoe to play Bijou and Zephyr Cove, but it’s nice to take the journey to this course anytime you’re in the area. If you’re feeling ambitious you can combine this with a trip to the Truckee Disc Golf Course as you travel along Highway 80 through the Sierras. Be sure to check in to make sure it’s open if you’re unsure that the snow has melted. I don’t know if they pull baskets but it’s definitely an area that will retain snow longer than the valley courses.
