Difficult

The course was much more difficult than the previous times playing. I had knee surgery in February and it was difficult walking up and down the hills. I have been playing flat courses for the most part until today, and up hill lies , down hill, and side hill lies were much more difficult We played with a couple of local retired teachers, and they kept us on track knowing the course really well. I would love to play the course again after I heal a little bit more from my knee surgery.

Short and sweet

Course is not long and often don't need driver off the tee. Tee shot can be tricky for first timers -- the course guide on the card really helps. Greens are fairly undulated and has strong breaks -- need very careful reads. Overall a wonderful mountain course demanding precision not distance.

It'd be good to restore the black tee

Incredible Place

This is a course cut into the mountains. Doglegs that you can't cut corners. Only hit driver 5 times. Spectacular views and course is in pristine condition. My first time there and I will be back.

Play it again soon

Apple Mountain is in excellent shape.
I’ve played there about 5 times and I’ve never seen it in better condition.
The weather interrupted us, but the atmosphere was 1st rate. A very welcoming change from Sacramento County courses. The woods, the mountain feel, the fresh air and great condition of the fairways and greens make Apple Mountain a Must return venue.

Great course!

The greens had been punched 3 weeks prior our round, hence why I'm only giving 4 stars for the "Course Conditions".

Not a beginers golf course!!

Although the overall length of the course isn't real long,
you must play total position golf.
Every shot is on a hill,up,down side.
Downhill lies shooting uphill very challenging.
Total mountain golf.90* degree was in affect when we
played although ten to twelve holes were roped off to
cart access a lot of walking up & down hills to your ball.
I'm in decent shape but at between 3,000 -4,000 feet elevation
I was sucking wind(needed oxygen).
course overall was in really good shape.
I'd definitely play this course AGAIN

Nice workout

It is a nice course and was in good shape. I don't recommend it for the elderly due to the many elevations you have to climb and walk. Looking forward to going back.

Mountain course experience

Come to Apple mountain for an incredible mountain course experience. Scenery and elevation changes are awesome. No matter what, you will be challenged by uneven lyes. You can’t get frustrated though, take a look around!

Great course

This course is always fun and challenging. With all the rain it is cart path only but otherwise it’s in great shape. Make the trip. It’s worth it!

Challenging and beautiful

Course was cart path only due to all of the winter storms. Fairways we're extremely soft and lost many balls due them sticking so deep. This was to all be expected because of the rain. This course is always a fun challenge and very well maintained. Highly recommend!!

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.
