Dear Golfers and Incline Village/Crystal Bay Residents,

The close of the 2019 golf season is upon us and what a great season it has been.  Jeff Clouthier had the Championship course in spectacular shape all year and the weather could not have been better.  All of the clubs, IVGC, IVGCL, TIGC, Polo and Teesters had incredible participation and great events.  Thank you to our Head Professional-Kyle Thornburg and First Assistant-Rob Bruce for their great execution of all these events.  Rounds overall and revenue were up for the season and we look forward to continued success starting in the spring of 2020.

Before the season ended, we constructed a new bridge on #14, paved some much needed areas around the course to provide for a smoother ride, added a new selfie spot on #7 tee and Jeff has many other projects he and his crew will be working on before the snow falls. View updates and photos from some of these projects on the Fall Maintenance page. Some of these include, bunker work, new red tees for 4/5 holes for the ladies, some tree work and end of the year aerification.  When spring rolls around everyone should see yet again a great product from Jeff and his team.

The Mountain course also enjoyed a great season of increased play and revenue and some course enhancements as well.  Jeff and his team were able to start early with aerification, so by the time the course clears of snow next spring, it should be in much better shape than usual because of the early healing from early aerification.  Much needed repairs were done to many problem areas on the cart paths, work has also been done around the putting green and some new irrigation added as well.  This area will be noticed right away upon arrival to the course.  The clubhouse renovation project has started and I know everyone is anxious to see the improvements and especially the new, larger deck area, and the roof is now completed and decking is moving along.  Focus will now shift to the interior of the building and as progress happens, we will keep you updated on our website on the Mountain Course Renovation page.   

Thank you to the Teesters and Mountain Niner’s for a very successful season and your participation and enthusiasm are greatly appreciated.  Everyone worked together with the help of our new Head Professional, Ashley Wood to pull off an incredible season! Thank you to all for helping Ashley feel welcome and thank you Ashley for guiding the Mountain Course through the season.

Golf Shop sales were at an all time high for 2019 and that was a direct result of all the hard work Genevieve and her staff put in not only during the season, but before the season even starts.  Thank you to everyone for your support of the Golf Shop and we have more great items coming in the future.  Please check the calendar and website as we go through the winter season as we have special sales and shopping experiences coming up, like Wine and Cheese Night in the Golf Shop along with special golf contests on the launch monitor (more details to come).

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone for making me feel welcome during my first season.  Please know, that I will continue to make your golf experience the best it can be and we will always look for ways to improve operations.  We value your feedback and your honest responses help us make our service even better. Please take a couple minutes to complete our online survey if you haven’t already.


I look forward to seeing many of you again next year and for those who stick around during the winter, please stop by and visit and participate in some of our exciting activities in the golf shop this winter.
