The women's club has worked with the NCGA to have someone come to give a rules clinic, and the men's club is invited to join in.   On June 18that 1pm at the Lodge we will have a Rules Representative from the NCGA, who has been giving Rules Clinics for the past several months, come to Tahoe Donner and provide us a PowerPoint Presentation of the major changes to the Rules. The session starts at 1pm in the Alder Room at the Lodge.  This is a "brown bag" event so feel free to bring your own lunch.  We will have some soft drinks/water available.The changes will be reviewed in an interactive format so you can get all of those burning Rules questions addressed. We'll follow up with some other information as the tournaments get closer, but this is a good chance to get a review and update.

2019 Tournament Schedule

posted Oct 22, 2018, 11:48 AM by TDmens Golf

The men's golf club tournament schedule for 2019 has been posted on the website - click on the tournament schedule link on the left.  There will be all the usual tournaments, including NCGA qualifiers, social events, the 12-man team events, and a few others that are still in the works.

We have made several changes, including moving the Invitational back to early September. Dates in early August or late August over the past few years have not increased participation, so we're going back to early Sept. We are also working on a way to let older seniors in the Invitational, who always play from the combo tees, to do that even if their index puts them in the flights that have traditionally been silver tees. More on that in the spring.
