The 2015 Celebrity Golf week is underway!

Even though I’m not personally a golfer, or even a fan of watching golf, actually, attending the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe is something I look forward to each year. Locally referred to as simply “Celebrity Golf,” this year’s American Century Championship is taking place July 14-19.

For the past 26 years, this celebrity golf extravaganza has been one of the highlights of summer in Tahoe South.  A blockbuster lineup of sports legends, all-stars, Olympians and hall of famers plus Hollywood celebrities of film and television is sure to bring out the autograph-hound in many of us. With long-standing veterans like NFL quarterback legends John Elway and Mark Rypien and newcomers Kim Alexis and Justin Timberlake(!), there’s a celebrity for everyone.  You can check out the full list of player’s at this year’s tournament here.

With all of this taking place at beautiful Edgewood Tahoe and scores of boats docked along the shores of Lake Tahoe, it’s easy to see how this event continues to grow in popularity year after year.

What else makes this event a “can’t miss” for me?

  • Try perfect weather forecasted for this weekend in Tahoe -- temperatures in the 70’s, lots of sunshine, and only a chance of a thunderstorm on Sunday afternoon.
  • Did I mention Justin Timberlake?
  • Shaquille O’Neal will be the guest DJ at PEEK Nightclub at Harrah’s. Seriously.


This year’s Celebrity Golf Week is already underway.  Practice Rounds and the Celebrity Am Tournament took place on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Thursday is also the last day that autographs are permitted. The main tournament begins on Friday and runs through Sunday with events televised on NBC.  Tickets are available to all events.  Tickets are also available at the front gate of the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.
