Last weekend was a perfect time for locals and visitors alike to enjoy the beautiful weather in Lake Tahoe, but it was also a great weekend to go see the stars at Edgewood Golf Course in South Lake Tahoe. Pro athletes and professional actors all gathered to test their golf skills at the annual American Century Golf Championship at Edgewood Golf Course and visitors were treated to an awesome week of getting to see the stars. Many of these stars were happy to sign autographs just like we see Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo doing in the above picture. I go to this tournament every year and it never gets old meeting Hall of Fame inductees like Emmitt Smith and Charles Barkley, along with the thrill of meeting super stars like Greg Maddux, A.J. Hawk, Jerome Bettis, Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers and so many more celebrities.
