Tahoe Donner Voted Best Golf Course & Nordic/Cross Country Ski Center
Truckee, Calif. (Wednesday, August 31, 2016) –Tahoe Donner is proud to announce it was chosen as Best Golf Course and Best Nordic/Cross Country Ski Center in 2016. The Best of North Tahoe & Truckee contest is hosted annually by the Sierra Sun and North Lake Tahoe Bonanza to select and honor top businesses and people that live and operate locally.
Each July, residents and visitors nominate and vote online for their favorites across multiple categories including food and drink, recreation, retail, travel and tourism, arts and culture, professional and other services, and local life. This year there were 112 subcategory winners with a record 54,000 votes recorded.
“We feel it’s one of the most important things a community newspaper can do — highlighting and celebrating the people, businesses, places and things that make Truckee/Tahoe such a great place to live, work and play,” said Kevin MacMillan, managing editor of the Sierra Sun and North Lake Tahoe Bonanza.
The Tahoe Donner Golf Course is one of the premier public golf courses in the Sierra Nevada and is rated “excellent” by reviewers on TripAdvisor. Located just minutes off Interstate 80 in Truckee, this 18-hole, 7,002-yard par-72 championship golf course sits on 200 acres of pristine Sierra landscape. Golfers enjoy towering pines featuring stunning views and meandering creeks, granite rock formations, elevation changes and greens so consistently pure they have been recognized as the “Best Greens in the Tahoe Region.”
“We are honored to be selected by our local community and visitors as their preferred place to play golf and go cross country skiing,” said Robb Etnyre, Tahoe Donner Association’s general manager. “Our dedicated and professional staff work hard to ensure the best experience for our members and the public.
