Fore! 31st Tahoe snow golf tourney Saturday at Alpine Meadows

Time to dust off the clubs — the 31st annual Snow Golf Tournament returns to Alpine Meadows for a day of nine-hole golf at one of Tahoe’s most beloved ski areas.

Recently featured on the Golf Channel, this popular spring event is the only mountaintop snow golf course around, according to a press release from the resort.

Participants start at the top of Alpine Meadows’ Summit Six chairlift and weave their way down a nine-hole course to the bottom of Alpine Bowl Chair.

Players are provided scorecards, pencils, clubs and tennis balls — in lieu of golf ball. Competitors are encouraged to dress up in their best “golf” attire, and must be wearing skis or a snowboard to navigate from hole to hole.

Participants can register at the top of Summit chair, beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday. Snow golf is free with a lift ticket or season pass.

Following the tournament, scorecards will be entered into a raffle. Prizes include rounds of golf at The Resort at Squaw Creek and Granite Bay Golf Club in Sacramento; a GoPro; Oakley goggles and sunglasses; Alpine swag and more. The raffle kicks off at 3 p.m. on the Sundeck.
