Nestled between the Sierra Nevada and the Cascade ranges, Grizzly Ranch Golf Club is surrounded by over a million acres of national and state forest. The landscape consists of rolling hills, native wetlands, and wildflower fields with ponderosas and Jeffrey pines sprinkled throughout. Grizzly Ranch Golf Club's terrain is mountainous with dramatic elevation changes and numerous valleys lined with trees. Despite the hilliness, the elevation is only 5,200 feet, which allows for warmer temperatures than most of Lake Tahoe. Although it is a challenging golf course, the absence of steep holes and soft pine straw adjoining the fairways that allow for playable lies make Grizzly Ranch forgiving enough for beginning and intermediate players.

First time playing Used cart Hot weather

I heard that Grizzly Ranch had a beautiful course; I heard correctly. The course is built around a housing community of what appears to be vacation homes. The staff were friendly and the pro shop was clean and orderly. The carts were clean but lacked ice in the ice chest. They had no GPS so bring your own. The range was manicured, clean, and well-maintained. The fairways, rough, and greens were in great shape. The course architect provides scenic views from almost any location. Overall, I think this is a 5 star course. Looking forward to going back.

Played the "resort" (white) tees. At 6074 yds, long enough! Some really tough holes--12 has kicked my a** all three times I've played this one. Lots of canyon carries, some big elevation changes both up and down. Fair course, though. Rough is very tough--does not give up its dead easily. Bring lots of balls.

Played this sept 2012. I have White Hawk, Coyote Moon, Donner, Old Greenwood, this course rates very high and is my favorite of those, Old Greenwood close behind. I've read reviews of Grizzly and some really racked it, well those people are probably Hacks because this course is very challenging, was in tremendous shape and like the head pro said, this is White Hawk on Steroids.

Since Grizzly Ranch became semi-private I have played it numerous times. Each round is a wonderful experience complete with friendly staff and terrific views on each hole.

It's no wonder "Golf Digest" ranks Grizzly Ranch in the top 3% of "all" California courses in 2013.
