Community: Excellence in Education golfing for the schools cards on sale April 21, 2017

Golfers, your season is almost here and your opportunity to save money on green fees is coming up when the Excellence in Education Foundation golfing for schools cards go on sale Friday, April 21, 2017.

The $325 transferable cards are an excellent value and are valid for 18-holes of play at seven of North Tahoe and Truckee’s premiere golf courses including Coyote Moon, Northstar, Old Greenwood, Resort at Squaw Creek, Tahoe City, Tahoe Donner and Gray’s Crossing. Some restrictions do apply; please visit for details.

“If you were to pay for 18-holes of golf at each course independently, you could easily spend over $500,” explains Laura Abbey Brown, Executive Director of the Foundation. “So not only are the cards a terrific deal, golfers are also helping support local Tahoe Truckee schools.”

The Golfing for Schools program is a primary fundraising program of the Tahoe Truckee Excellence in Education Foundation.

The Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization that enhances public education within the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. Each year the Foundation raises money and provides grants, resources, and partnerships to benefit students, teachers and the educational community as a whole.

Cards may be purchased online at There is an eight card per person purchase limit and additional restrictions do apply. Only a limited number of passes are available and cards will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Purchase your card on the opening weekend and be entered into a drawing for a twosome of golf at Lahontan or Ponderosa Golf Course in Truckee. Call Excellence in Education at 530-550-7984 or visit for more information.
