Set in the scenic Mohawk Valley, Whitehawk Ranch Golf Club was designed by Dick Bailey and has been ranked as one of the 20 best golf courses in California by Golf Digest. Just a short drive from the golf destinations of Reno and Tahoe, Whitehawk has gained a well-earned reputation as one of the must plays of the High Sierra region.

The layout and scenery are the biggest stars of Whitehawk, as Bailey used the natural landscape top carve a course that will take you through steams, waterfalls and ponds, as well as a variety of trees, including pines, cedars and aspens.

But golfers will need to keep their eye on the ball as much as the scenery, as Whitehawk plays to nearly 7,000 yards from the back tees with an imposing 130 slope rating. The neat fairways and tricky greens will challenge golfers of all levels, while there are plenty of risk-reward opportunities for daring players. All told, Whitehawk is a High Sierra standout.

I've played the course several times, always on golf getaways with buddies. Did the replay ($115 for first 18, $55 for second), so the average cost per round = $85. Outstanding for that price! Played 3-hawk and 2-hawk. As a 16 handicapper, the 2-hawk was more fun. Challenging greens--slopey. The rough is death, and not much is marked hazard. Lots of lost balls as a result. Be prepared for that. Course is really gorgeous, plan to play it again soon.

The practice facility (range, chipping area, sand trap, putting green) is outstanding, probably the best I've ever used.

Played on a beautiful summer weekday. Course was not busy at all. Staff was very accomodating and nice. Course was extremely well maintained but was not itself very difficult. Lines are very straightforward off the tee. Fairways very generous and flat for the most part. Green not too undulating. They are very receptive and roll true.
