Mountain High

Great golf with an altitude

       
When To Go
We’re talking about the mountains here, so even the most soft-heeled traveler knows that a golfing trip to the Rockies or High Sierra should avoid the winter months. That being said, spring through fall pull out all the stops, providing Eden-like conditions. Watch out for summer lightning storms—heed the warning and find shelter immediately. And don’t be surprised by sudden turns in weather; at Edgewood Tahoe, the course has seen flurries every month of the year.

Getting There
For Rockies destinations, fly into Denver International. Only 150 miles separate you from the tarmac and the mountain resort towns. For access to Coeur d’Alene, Spokane, Wash., is your best bet, lying a mere 40 miles to the west of the Idaho resort town. The golf sites of South Lake Tahoe, Carson City and Truckee are best reached via Reno. The north shore of Lake Tahoe is but a 35-mile drive from downtown.
