Felicia Events spoke with Susie Cheatley, Event and Tournament Sales Manager at Lake Tahoe Golf Course, about their wedding options. With forest and Truckee River views, it’s an idyllic setting for the wedding of your dreams.


Felicia Events: Tell us about the setting and what the Lake Tahoe Golf Course offers for weddings.

Susie Cheatley: The setting here is spectacular. Located on a verdant meadow within a California State Park, this private outdoor patio and clubhouse is spread out beside the Upper Truckee River, offering an intriguing mix of landscaped grounds, surrounded by natural woods and views of the Sierra Mountains. The Lake Tahoe Golf Course Clubhouse, distinguished by a river rock base and steep pitched roof, has the flavor of a mountain lodge with the iconic Mt. Tallac visible behind it.

FE: What are the benefits of having a wedding at Lake Tahoe Golf Course?

SC: Seclusion and privacy are two KEY words I hear from my brides and grooms!With that comes ample parking for all your guests. You really feel like you are celebrating at your own private wedding lodge in the Sierra Mountain Forest!



FE: Can brides bring in their own food, music, photographer, etc.?

SC: Lake Tahoe Golf Course offers in-house catering with a variety of menus to choose from. We are happy to put together both vegetarian and gluten-free options as well. Other outside vendors, such as floral, photography, wedding planners, DJs, etc. are always welcome at LTGC. I am more than happy to recommend these services with local vendors as well!



FE: Tell us about the Wedding Show Weekend. What are the benefits for brides who attend that event?

SC: Wedding Show Weekend is going to showcase Lake Tahoe Golf Course’s Clubhouse for both winter and spring/summer/fall weddings! Some of the best local vendors will be here assisting us in setting the stage for the perfect wedding day at Lake Tahoe Golf Course. Did I mention the amazing food and beverage that will be on hand to enjoy? Or, did I mention the two $10,000 sweepstakes awards being given out to two lucky couples?

FE: Is the golf course open year-round for weddings?

SC: YES!
