EDITOR’S NOTE: “Tip of the week” is a periodic feature running in the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza, in partnership with the Incline Village General Improvement District, providing locals with various tips pertaining to the recreation opportunities and services the district provides.

The Incline Village golf courses have been in incredible shape this summer, and we hope that you’ve been able to get out and enjoy them.

As the snow starts to fly and we start to look forward to winter, it’s important to remember that some of the best golf of the season can still be played at the Championship Course.

Sure, it may require an extra layer, but the course is in fantastic shape as we enter our last month of operation, with shoulder season rates in place.

The Mountain Course closes this weekend (Sunday 10/6 is our last day of operation), so make sure you head out and get some work in on your short game.

Here are a few quick tips for successful fall golf:

• If you’re a morning golfer, there’s a good chance the temperatures will be a little cooler than they’ve been this summer. Take the time to stretch appropriately before hitting the course.

• Staying warm is a priority, so you’ll want to layer up. However, make sure you avoid bulky clothes and wear thin layers. We want to be warm, but we also want to make sure we’re able to swing freely.

• If distance is a concern, think about keeping your golf balls inside the night before you play. Leaving the golf balls in the car can expose them to cold temperatures overnight that can have an adverse affect on the distance the ball will fly.

Come on out and enjoy the last few rounds of the season.
