“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Overcrouded and overpriced. The greens are always in average to below average conditions. Its just acceptable but it is a destination course so you have to play it. I much prefer playing Snow Creek twice. I will say the staff at Sierra is excellent.

“Bring your camera and your "A" game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

A truly picturesque course that makes you feel good to be outside enjoying another great Mammoth Lakes day. The staff here is warm and friendly. You can barely get out of your car before a staff member has pulled up a golf cart and has offered to load your clubs on the cart. The course is narrow and challenging. I have seen bears(at a distance) drinking from the lakes and there are plenty of deer as well. Hole #10 is one of my favorites. Dave Schacht and his staff are great to work with and the course is in fantastic shape after the biggest snow year on record.

“Golf in the Sierras”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2002

Sierra Star is a must for the golfer who visits Mammoth Lakes. The scenic vistas complement the beauty of this majestic golf course and the high altitude makes you feel like Tiger Woods hitting off the tee. The course is short, the altitude makes it play even shorter, and though you need to be accurate off the tee, not as difficult as it may seem. We were even fortunate enough to see a bear cub along the 10th fairway. The only bad thing is that there is no driving range for you to figure out just how much the altitude will effect your distances. Plan on between 1 and 2 clubs difference. Happy Golfing.
