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.

Great if you’re straight.

Unless your driver is under control, you’ll be better served leaving it in the bag most of the day. Fun golf course, staff very accommodating. Don’t get too greedy off the tee and you will have a good day. Greens in good shape, not really fast but they have a little personality. No beverage cart (weekday) pack accordingly it heated up in the afternoon. You are in beautiful surroundings but, there are plenty of houses just off the fairways. Lots of fun, wouldn’t hesitate to play it again.

5 some in front of us

Worst experience I have ever had with this course...they booked 7 holes scramble with 2 groups per hole and then a fivesome in front of us. I bailed after 9 looking at 5 and a half 6 hour round. If you play this course call first and see what kind of circus they have on. F...F...fail fail fail

Great course

best greens I’ve putted on all year. Course conditions were excellent and consistent from start to finish. Challenging course but fair enough for the average golfer to put a descent round together. I would recommend this course to anyone trying to play in this area.

Great shape, tee to green.

An excellent course, in great shape, beautiful greens. I caught it after a tournament and the course was full and slow. Many holes are not accessable with a cart which hurts pace of play.

a day in the mountains

The pace of play was excellent. The staff indicated we could go out anytime we wanted and played the round under 3 1/2 hours. The course was well maintained although the greens were soft and slow – particularly compared to Graeagle which is the opposite. Play from the tips and the course is a brute. Play from the whites and it’s a scorer’s dream.
Overall we enjoyed the course, the staff and as always the views are spectacular.

Good conditions, great staff, some tight fairways, greens could be faster

Overall the conditions of the course are good, the fairways can be tight on some holes so leaving the driver in your bag for most of the round is a good idea even playing from the tips. The staff is very friendly and willing to accomodate you and appreciate your business. Only thing I could say is that they could cut the greens a little bit shorter to make them faster, however, they are probably keeping them slow and a little bit longer to accommodate most of "their" guests. overall I think this is the second best course within 45 miles or so.
