This challenging foothills golf course offers a great value with green fees as low as $39 including cart - a necessity. The fairways are not in the best shape but are adequate. Sand traps are solid dirt, not sand, with overhanging lips, and so are...More

Great golf course with a Sierra Nevadas feel. Somewhat challenging but we love this course. And during our round yesterday we saw deer, wild turkeys, geese, squirrels and many kinds of birds. We try to golf here every time we visit

This course is off the beaten path... It's a nice course, kept up. They offer deals online.. This course is not the easiest. There are hills, trees, elevated greens and tee off boxes. This course takes a couple times to figure it out...
