Full Of Potential
I've been playing this course for over 40 years. The greens are very nice, and well tended. The fairways are awful, as little or no weed control is done. Fairways are mostly weed grasses, spurge, clover, knotweed, etc. with less and less "real" grass each passing year. Bunkers are pretty well cared for. A nice little chipping and pitching area was allowed to die and hasn't been revived. What's up with that? Pro shop staff is sometimes friendly. All in all the course is a shadow of its former self, but it could be brought back to greatness with proper management.
Hello, thank you for taking the time to review Plumas Lake Golf and Country Club. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we hope you'll give us another try in the near future.

Playeyed front nine 2x. No slow play. Recent greens airation evident.

Plumas Lake. lots of fun
This course was a great value, greens are very fast and have lots of slope, was getting the hang of them toward the end of round. The rough is cut a bit tall and made it hard to find ball at times. Starter would not let us tee off early even though there was 30 minutes between us and group ahead of us. But that will not stop us from returning due to value.
Perfect weather except the wind. The most fast greens we played lately.
We like fast greens and these greens were extremely fast but manageable. Because of the wind the pace of the play was very good. We finished the round in 3:45 hrs. It appeared that they might have a new owner or management. There was some good improvements made since we played here a couple of years ago. The staff was not overly friendly but was kind enough to play 15 minutes before our tee time. The last time we played two years ago, the staff was very unprofessional saying that “I cannot let you play before your tee time because it’s GolfNow and we don’t make any money”. We decided to stay away from the course. But now we will return to play here whenever we can. Thanks GolfNow.
Fairways were in great shape
The course was in great shape for February. It wasn’t cart path only. The greens were ok. The bunkers played nicely. I only paid &
$12 for 18 with a cart

It's all about the greens.
A late December golf date couldn't have gone better than the time we spent at Plumas Lake GC recently. Heavy rains early in the week did not dampen our experience. The fairways allowed the ball to roll some and were firm enough for our carts. But this course is all about the undulating greens and pin placements. We think the greenskeeper had it in for us this day. A lot of the holes were placed on ridgetops - resulting in too many 3-putts and not enough 1-putts. But we'll be back again and again until we figure these greens out!
Pace of play was terrible
We were a 2 some trying to play at a good pace. Round was okay until we caught up to a 5 some. We latter saw a 6 some after the turn. This was the first time we have seen a course that allows a 6 some
Undulating Challenging Greens
The course is over-rated from a course rating and slope standpoint. 70.9/123 from the blue tees is too high for being only 6,159 yards. But the greens are hard, firm and hard to hold, especially for short pitch shots. The greens have a lot of slope and undulation considering how small the green size is. Played in 3 1/2 hours as a twosome, but had to play a few holes out of order to get ahead of two fivesomes in front of us.
Undulating Challenging Greens
Course is in decent shape, but not excellent. Many dry areas. Greens were decent, but not at the traditional Plumas Lake standard of green and fast. Greens were firm, but not allowing the ball to bite quickly. After 10 a.m. very few people teeing off, as it was 98 degrees at 4 p.m.
Consistent course. Ok condition.
Back in the day, this course was crowded every time out. Now if you play in the afternoon you have the course to yourself which is nice. It's a dry course, and the greens are harder than others, but it's consistent. The fairways are consistently mowed, sand is good quality, but I do wish things were a little greener.
I played Plumas today and I had an excellent round. It was 98 degrees when I tee’d off so I played by myself. Ha ha. Lots of dog legs and if you play your shots correctly you can score well. The greens were amazing and I figured out I play undulating greens the best. The number 9 and 18 holes are drivable and I birdied both so don’t be afraid to go for it. I would recommend this course to all and if you don’t mind playing in the summer heat get a few guys/gals together for a round and you can finish within 3 hours. Hit’m straight.
This course is in serious need of some water. The fairways are concrete with zero live grassardage. Furthermore gps in the carts doesn’t give actual yardage, actually no info about the hole being played at all. The greens bounce like trampolines they do not hold. I would avoid this course and certainly would not drive from Sacramento to play it.
We had a great time. The greens were challenging mostly because of pin placement. We will be back.
The course is close and reasonably priced. Conditions are decent for a daily fee course and the staff was very friendly
