American Century Lake Tahoe Celebrity Golf Championship - July 11-16, 2017

The celebrity golf championship is one of the most successful of all Tahoe's events as well as the most successful of the celebrity golf tour events. This year will be no different as we have one of the best fields, and best conditions to go along with it.  The actual tournament runs from Friday-Sunday but the entire week is filled with excitement . Many believe the best time to attend is Tuesday-Thursday since the crowds are less and there is more access to the celebrities. All times subject to change at the whim of mother nature.

This year the focus was less on the comedy aspects and more on excellent golf. The tournament ran down to the 54th hole with Jack Wagner edging out Billy Joe Tolliver and Dan Quinn. All three finished with birdies. Lance Armstrong proved to be the major attraction, although his stay was cut short due to prior obligations.
July 10, 2005 - Tournament week is here once again and the field is ripe with stars. In addition to past favorites listed below we'll have newcomers this year including All-Pro defensive end Bruce Smith, BMX Champion Dave Mirra and the girl whose posters adorned my walls as a teenager, Cheryl Ladd. Six of the seven previous champions will be present to contest for this year's trophy. Speaking of past champions, today we had the fortune to get paired up with Mark Rypien, the 1990 champion, for an afternoon round.(pics) Besides being a nice guy, He got game. Me thinks he'll also have more warm up rounds in than just about anyone else. If I were a bettin' man, and he were at 8 to 1, I know where my money would be.

2004 Tourney (pics)- Each year the Edgewood-Tahoe Golf Course and Restaurant is host to the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship. While the Championship always draws the big names on the Celebrity Golf Tour, like Rick Rhoden and the 2004 Champ Dan Quinn, the spectators mostly come for the big celebrities. This year brought us a star filled group including notables like Michael Jordan, The Donald (Your Fired!), John Elway, and who could forget the Man with the Golden Swing, Charles Barkley.

In general, Edgewood turns over the clubhouse to NBC for the celebrities and their entourages. The opening night Gala was catered this year by Gustav Mauler of Gustav International, while the Edgewood culinary team prepared for three days of six-hour buffets spread throughout the clubhouse and across the course. The weather this year was perfect. The only thing to possibly threaten the event was the Waterfall Fire, which broke out early Wednesday morning just across the mountain range in Carson City.

My favorite quotes from the tourney came from two young spectators; "Look" he said, pulling a bottle from the garbage can, "It's Barkley's empty beer bottle." Said his friend, "Oh Yeah, well I got Michael Jordan's cigar butt!" Look for both on an EBay near you.

We look forward to greater coverage of the tournament in 2005. The dates are currently set as July 12-17, 2005.
