Golf Course Opening Slated for May 16



The Tahoe Donner Golf Course officially opens for the 2014 season May 16. With early season conditions the best they’ve been in the last seven years, this is one of our earliest openings ever.

The 18-hole championship golf course will be open for play to the public and homeowners seven days a week for the season starting May 16. Tahoe Donner’s driving range opened for the season April 19 and is open daily.

Clinics and Instruction

Tahoe Donner Golf Course offers daily one-hour clinics for all skill levels throughout the season. New last season, twilight clinics are also offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. Clinics are scheduled for approximately 60 minutes and the cost is $20. Clinics run from June 9-September 7.

Tahoe Donner also offers Get Golf Ready, a learning program that includes a series of five golf lessons for only $99. Instruction is targeted to the new or lapsed golfer and there is a maximum of 10 students per group lesson. The lessons cover golf basics including putting, chipping, the full swing, course etiquette and general rules of golf. Get Golf Ready starts early June. Check with the pro shop at 530-587-9443 for specific times and dates.

For junior golfers, the Tahoe Donner Golf Course offers Junior Golf Schools. Specifically catering to juniors 8-14 years old, this program teaches putting, chipping, full swing, etiquette and the rules of golf. The classes are from 8-10 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays on the following dates: June 23-25, July 7-9; July 14-16; July 21-23, and July 28-30. To sign up or for more information call the pro shop at 530-587-9443.

Early Season Rates for Season Passes and Packages

2014 season golf passes and multi-play packs are now on sale at early season savings. Members of the public may purchase a Four Pack in advance and play for under $80 a round (including cart) – a 20% savings. Tahoe Donner members may buy rounds in advance for as low as $45 per round – a 25% savings (prices valid through April 30). Or, purchase a season pass for even greater savings. All season passholders who purchase a pass before April 30 receive vouchers to bring a friend to play for half off! For the best rates, go to tahoedonner.com and click on ShopTD before May 1.

Golf Volunteer Cleanup Days

Our golf clubs have teamed together with our golf staff to organize two golf course cleanup days. Help with the cleanup effort, then join the group afterward for some refreshments.

We Hope to See You Soon!

With very few exceptions, 2014 golf passes, packs and daily green fees remain the same as 2013 rates. Members of the public may purchase a Four Pack in advance and play for under $80 a round (including cart) – a 20 % savings. Tahoe Donner members may buy rounds in advance for as low as $45 per round – a 25 % savings (prices valid through April 30).

Don’t delay; rates go up May 1! Take advantage of early-season pricing now (starting April 1). Members can take advantage of great savings and benefits including the following if purchased by April 30**:

  • 20-play pack for $45 per round,  a 25% savings!
  • 10-play pack for $50 per round, a 17% savings!

Following such a mild winter, Tahoe Donner golf management anticipates opening the golf course by mid-May, if not sooner, with perhaps the earliest opening to date. It’s also likely that the driving range may open even before May. The upside to a light snow year is that the golf season may turn out to be the longest and best golf season ever experienced at Tahoe Donner. Don’t miss out; get your pass or packs before May 1. Go to ShopTD to take advantage of the early season discount.

New Cross Country Ski Center at Tahoe Donner



New Cross Country Ski Center at Tahoe Donner

After years of research, collaboration, plan development and membership review and feedback, the plans for Tahoe Donner’s new Cross Country Ski center is on the verge of final approval.

While the plans were scheduled to be reviewed in April by the Town of Truckee Building Department and Planning Commission, the Town of Truckee has recommended that the Planning Commission hearing to review the cross country ski center plans be postponed from the April 15 date for an additional, necessary review period. We will provide an update once the new date has been determined. The new date will be announced on the Town of Truckee website.

The sport of cross country continues to thrive and with limited space for retail, rental equipment, administrative offices and a small kitchen for food and beverage services, our current facility doesn’t meet the demand of our customers’ needs and now operates above capacity during peak periods. The plan for the new Cross Country Ski Center is designed to meet the changing and growing needs of our community.

Proposed Improvements:

  • Improved level of service for both winter and summer operations
  • Improved usage for school teams, young children and education programs
  • Energy efficient and environmentally conscious design
  • Enhanced rental facility and new public locker room
  • Improved parking and access
  • An architectural vision that reflects and contributes to the neighborhood and mountain location
  • Improved food and beverage service

Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center will continue to serve Tahoe Donner members, the community, youth programs, regional visitors and the XC industry as a whole.

The Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center will also continue to drive revenue to the town through sales tax, tourism, and product offerings.

No special assessment is required to complete this project:

The cost for the project will be paid for out of the capital funds portion of the association’s budget. Every year a percent of each member’s annual dues is set aside into the development fund; projects that are identified by the board are eligible for such future funding and paid for from this fund.

Please express your support for Tahoe Donner’s new Cross Country Ski Center:

  • Send an email to supportTDXC@tahoedonner.com (please note: emails sent to this address will also be sent to all the Town of Truckee Planning Commissioners, town  council members, town staff, and Tahoe Donner staff).
  • Advocacy letter templates are available; email comdep@tahoedonner.com.

More details on the Cross Country Ski Center plans can be viewed on our capital projects page.
