Plumas is Special

Course was recently plugged but GolfNow did not mention this but the greens were ok to putt. Rest of the course in great shape. Got behind 4 elderly ladies that took forever to play. They should have picked up after 7 strokes....

Course was in pristine condition. Go now before they close for the season. Greens were receptive and fast, fairways were plush. Single file down the fairway.The course was super tight but very playable. Have to think your way around the course.

Plumas Pines in October

Play this course 1 time a week for a month and you will be able to play most courses. Tight fairways and small greens make this course a real challenge. October is the best time of the year to be in this part of the country.

Great Course to Begin Our Trip

Plumas Pines is a great course! This was the first course my brother and I played during our 2020 brother's trip. Tee'd off at 1:10 pm and were able to easily get in 36 holes. We loved it!! A little smoky/hazy due to the fires, but not enough to impact our golf. Course was fun, easy to get around, and everyone at the course was very nice and helpful. We'd play here again.

Always beautiful in Graeagle

The weather is perfect even when it isn't. Sunny, just the right amount of humidity, fluffy clouds. On this particular day there was some massive pyro-cumulus clouds from the Loyalton wildfire. The course played great: front 9 had its water hazards, the back 9 narrow buy dry. Greens were soft but quick, fairways meticulously groomed. As they say in the pro shop: "The course is in great shape today"

First Round

Course was amazing. My one suggestion would to have the marshals insure pace of play. We got stuck behind a group that was taking 25mins/hole. Other than that everything was fantastic.

Another Great round @ Plumas Pines

Perfect day as far as weather was concerned. The course was quit wet/damp in certain areas (mostly the runoff's), but really nothing that would interfere with the play. The practice putting green seemed much faster than the actual green on the course, but nothing that you could not adjust to within a few holes. Play was somewhat slow at first and then got backed up towards the end of the round (last 3/4 holes. Overall the round was very enjoyable and the course looked fantastic. Will definitely be going back before the end of the season.

Great coarse friendly staff and attentive pro shop

A fun course nestled in Plumas County. Lots of Mountain View’s along the Feather River. The front nine is tight and water hazards on just about every hole. I felt the back nine was a little more open and enjoyable. Great club house and restaurant. Friendly bar and wait staff. Well stocked pro shop.
