Where’s it at? Over stateline in NV off 50 beyond casinos


Zephyr Cove is an awesome course in Nevada beyond the casinos off Highway 50. 18 holes line hillsides with every hole having elevation change, pine and fir trees, and numerous shrubs to deal with. Almost every time I’m in South Lake Tahoe (and it’s not TOO snowy), I make a journey to this course, often playing it along with Bijou Disc Golf Course in the same trip.

Try to visit during the summer to ensure no more snow, the last several years there has been snow here through May each year, starting again in November the following year, giving only 5 months of playability. I don’t believe they pull the baskets, it’s just that this one is a higher elevation (guessing 7000 ft.) and has some north-facing holes that hold their snow later than others.

Zephyr Cove probably ranks as my second favorite disc golf course that is a reasonable drive from home in the Bay area, close second to Condon Park in Grass Valley. If you are coming to play here, plan on a little bit of exercise and bring along some water.
