Changes at Equestrian Center This Summer

Horsemanship camps and lessons will no longer be offered at Tahoe Donner Equestrian Center. The facility and programs will be going through a restructuring and resizing process so that the amenity can continue to provide core services to our members, but operate at less of a loss. Beginning this summer, the Equestrian Center’s main focus will be boarding, trail and pony rides and BBQ’s.

There are preliminary plans to offer a “trail day camp” on a limited basis. On select dates, we will offer a half-day program for ages 8 and up. Participants will get to groom and saddle/unsaddle their horse and go for a trail ride; upon return, they will get to help feed the lunch to the horses and listen to a short lecture on various horse-related topics. Keep an eye on our website for further details on this program.

For those students who are looking for riding instruction or the week-long camp experience, a nearby alternative is Piping Rock Equestrian Center. Located 5 minutes from downtown Truckee, they offer both lessons and horsemanship camps during the 2012 summer season. For more information, visit their website at or call (530) 582-6780. Tahoe Donner does not recommend or endorse any other organization offering these services; Piping Horse is simply offered as a nearby option for equestrians to potentially investigate.

Golf Season Passes on Sale

Tahoe Donner Golf Course season passes are on sale now, with pre-season discounts available through April 30. Sure, there’s still snow on the ground, but that will be gone before you know it – and this year looks good for a much earlier start to the golf season than last year.

A variety of packs and passes are on the menu, depending on your budget and how often you like to play. This year, golfers who are not homeowners at Tahoe Donner can purchase an unlimited or five day pass, in addition to the previously available weekday afternoon pass. As always, members may book tee times up to 14 days in advance, while public golfers may book up to 12 days in advance.

Also new this year is a Four Pack which can be used all at once for a foursome, or on four individual rounds on different days. The Four Pack costs just $316 (that’s $79 a round including cart!) and may be used any time before June 29 and after September 3. Would you or a friend like an affordable way to learn the game of golf? Check out “Get Golf Ready,” five group lessons for just $99.

April 30 is the deadline for all these great rates. Buy online now.

Tahoe Donner has special rates for groups of 12 or more, including options for tournaments and banquet dining. See what we can do for your event.
