    Greenhorn Creek Resort

    "A scenic neighborhood course at the foot of the Sierras"

    For a course that winds through an sprawling neighborhood, Greenhorn Creek sure is scenic and pleasantly peaceful. There are some truly remote spots where there are no houses to interrupt the stunning views of the foothills of the Sierras - notably the par 3s at 13 and 15. The front side is great for scoring. Two of the three par 5s - holes 4 and 7 - are short from the blues (both under 481 yards) and ripe for eagles and birdies. The fairways shrink on the tighter, more demanding back nine. The restaurant in the clubhouse is excellent, so stop for a bite after the round. The prime rib special and live music packs in the crowds for a nice ambiance on the weekends. more »
