I played the Mountain Course in Incline Village this weekend. This is a tough short course (par 58 ) that winds its way though the woods with a number of narrow fairways with ball-eating brush luring on either side. For the most part, if you hit it straight, you’ll do ok. If you go left and right, you better bring a few extra sleeves of balls.
Mostly par threes with a lot of elevated tee boxes and elevated greens at this altitude make choosing a club pretty challenging. I was short on a number of holes and over a few of them… then the slippery greens made chipping the ball close a challenge.
All in all, a beautiful day on a beautiful course. I’m looking forward to playing it again in the spring.
