Great course in the mountains at fair value when booking through GolfNow. Course was in as good of condition as I've seen for a public course. 14 handicappers and below should play the blue tees due to length and extra carry from altitude. Planning on returning with a small group. A MUST PLAY IF IN THE AREA.

Beautiful course in fantastic shape at an amazing price! I drove up from Chico that morning -- and hour and a half and was worth every mile of the gorgeous drive. The course is well designed - difficult but fair. The greens were a tad slow, but I have a feeling they will firm up in the summer and be perfect. The people were very nice as well. All in all, one of the best golf experiences I've had since moving back up to NoCal.

This is my third time playing Bailey Creek. Overall the course was in great condition, but the sand could have been a little fluffier in the bunkers. That is really my only complaint. Everything else was top notch. Well maintained, good cart, and fun as heck to play. A couple of signature holes that bring me back each year. The staff in the pro shop were friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend Bailey Creek.

This is one of my most favorite tracks in all of California! Bailey Creek has it all, long hard par 4's to full carries over water par 3's to grip it a rip it (use the elevation) to be on in 2 par 5's. Never miss a chance to play this track. Get the home made chips and the tri-tip!

Just 45 minutes from our mountain cabin, Bailey Creek is our "second home" course. It is in terrific condition, with lush fairways and very true greens, amazing given the current drought conditions in Northern California. The course features a variety of challenges, from very short par threes to full length par fives with abundant bunkers, trees to navigate around and through, and several holes with considerable elevation changes.

I REALLY like this course......beautiful fairways and greens, it is an excellent condition for a course only open for the warm months of the year. Only problem we encountered was the club house employee who claimed he could not change our golf now tee time even though no one tee'd off for at least a half hour prior to our time. Then just before our time, he let on a foursome before our twosome which played slow for the rest of the day. I really got the impression that we were not welcome as we had discounted tee times. The other staff such as the "cart girl" and the snack bar servers were way above average. All in all, I really like this place but had a somewhat bad experience with the club house clerk.

This is a hidden gem that is somewhat off the beaten path. Unfortunately, we don't play it as often as we would like but when we do it's always special. It's an interesting course in beautiful setting. If you get the chance to play here, take it. You won't regret it.

This course is absolutely fantastic. There's not one brown patch of grass on the entire course. The fairways are wide enough to make it enjoyable, but if you get off into the rough you'll need extra effort to save par. We do a stay and play here every year in October and it's one of the best public mountain courses in all of Northern California.
