One of my favorite courses

I've played at Apple Mountain about 15 times and it's easily one of my favorite courses to play in the Sacramento area. My friends and I have played here in the summers and winters, and they keep the course groomed very well and greens rolling true. The staff is great and a pleasure to talk with. Honestly with all the courses in the Sacramento area, I don't mind driving a little further up the hill to get the views, well maintained fairways, greens and over all play. If you've played this course you know what I mean, and if you've been thinking about playing here... do yourself a favor and check it out. I was lucky enough to get this under the hot deals for under $20 and I couldn't be happier.

Can't beat Apple Mountain

This is one of my favorite Sierra courses. Hard to believe it was in this good of shape in December! Super friendly, courteous staff got us right out playing even though we were about 30 minutes early.

What a steal

Found this great Golf Now deal for $15/pp w/cart. Although it had rained beforehand the course was in excellent condition. It was cart path only, which made it a little slow but there were only a few of us out there so the pace of play was like a walk in the woods. The staff was very friendly. Had a great time.

Wet & Wild

Cart path only for the day. Course was wet with some minor plugging. Greens were in excellent shape. Remains one of my favorite courses to play no matter what. Lots of challenging holes. Keep up the good work, Apple Mountain.

Started out a little chilly but got better. Beautiful day for a round of golf before the weather gets bad.

Perfect weather for an early afternoon play in December.. The staff welcomed us as always to make us feel good. We love to drive up here, 60 miles one way, couple of times a month to just enjoy the beautiful scenery, nature, birds and colorful trees and flowers. and a wonderful round of golf.

Always reminds us the beautiful Smoky Mountain in Tennessee and Stoney Mountain golf course in Atlanta. Totally enjoying 4 hours of golf and the dinner afterwards. The apples are delicious and fresh.

The course is always challenging and that’s why we just love the mountain golf. Gives me higher than average score here most of the time than any other courses in Northern California.

Pro shop staff are great, best people who seem to understand the golf culture, in addition to their courteous and professional way of doing business.

Good stockings of merchandise and display. Good price too. We enjoy taking advantage of occasional discounts of shirts and hats.

We have invited Southern California golfers(house guests) the last few years and they keep asking when they can come up and play at the Apple Mountain. They loved playing here too.

As always, many thanks to the GolfNow for providing us these wonderful offers.

The layout was amazing!

You know those picturesque paintings where you tee off from a cliff to a ledge where the perfectly manicured green awaits your shot? I thought those places didn’t exist, but they do! Every hole is breathtaking! So affordable too!

Great weather but overbooking spoiled a perfect game.

Everything was as expected: just great course to play and enjoy the autumn beauty, except the pace of the play. We usually complete our game within 4 hours. It took us 5 & 1/2 hours! Just too many players on the course. No one appeared to be beginners. Still enjoyed the round.

Best course in the area

this is the best kept secret in the area. Just 20 minutes from Folsom and so worth the drive. The staff is friendly and the course is in great shape. Apple Mountain may be challenging, however fair. Also the practice facility is one of the best in the Sacramento valley.

Fun mountain course with beautiful views

This was my first time playing Apple Mountain. I drove up from Sacramento (about an hour drive from downtown Sacramento).

The practice area was great. Nice chipping area, bunkers to practice from, etc. The only drawback to the practice area was that the range was limited to the mats today.

The course is a typical mountain course with lots of dramatic elevation changes, both uphill and downhill holes. There are alot of dogleg holes carved around the mountain terrain. The course is beautiful, but there were LOTS of areas with bare dirt around the greens and on the slopes in the fairways.

The course is not long in length, but it plays alot longer than the scorecard indicates due to the elevation changes. The course rating is low, which definitely surprises me considering that this is a pretty challenging course.

If you’re playing for the first time, stop thinking and book a tee time. The views alone and cool mountain air are worth it.
