The course conditions have dropped but fun

I know this course isn’t the best and I’m not looking for Pebble Beach for the price, but boxes were in bad shape and the greens had ball marks every wear. Generally ball marks are not the course managements fault so I lived with this problem for my round. The fairways had mud from all of the rain but that’s to be expected. I spoke to the Marshall who was out trying to fix the gopher problem they’d been having, so needless to say the course is going through its challenges. Overall I had a good day with no backup in front or pushes from behind and I had some pretty good drives on most holes. The number 1 handicap hole #8 made my day since I par it and set up for a great back 9. The 13th par 3 is always fun and challenging as it’s a 208 yard par 3 and the enormous house located behind the green stands out from the rest. The 18th hole is a dog leg left and a driver would not be the club to choose if you hit it long.

It’s really sad to see so many courses suffering as they are and I think this is one of them, but with some luck this course will be around for some good golf in the future. Thanks Plumas for a good day.

Nice Course!

This is a pretty nice course that is not too difficult, when we played it was cart path only and a bit of mud in the fairways but, this is a much better course during the spring and summer. The greens are in pretty good shape.

Greens are fast and in good condition. Rough a little long to find balsa. Fairways well cared for. Course is challenging for beginners, lots of trees.

Plumas Lake

Played from the blue tees, and shot approximately 10 over. Both fairways and greens where in good shape. The weather was perfect. At only $16.00 for 18 with cart, I had a fantastic round.

Decent course, but BEWARE

If you book on GN as a single and another individual books the same tee time as you (single), this course will ask you to share a cart together. Not necessarily the worst, but not enjoyable either.

As for the course, it's a neat course in good shape. Some fairly challenging holes, and a neat creek that the course follows. The creek is EMPTY tho and its kinda a bummer. I personally feel it makes the course much hotter than it would be. SIDE NOTE: The layout is extremely confusing and holes don't necessarily follow a smooth path.

Comment on the comment from Plumas Lake. Making people double up on carts is NOT the policy for golf now reservations at all courses. I've run into it on occasion, and it's also true for all reservations at times, especially when carts are in short supply but definitely not across the board for golf now. On the flip side, golfers should know, and it didn't seem like the reviewer did, that when you go out as a single you're buying half a cart, and if the course insists you double up you can't argue against it.

Maybe so. Out of the the dozens of courses I have played this summer, Plumas lake is the only course that enforces this policy. No big deal though, I wont play the course again, or speak positively about PLCC with other golfers. Problem solved :)

Fairways awful

Course is decent for the money if you can get in for a cheap price. Fairways are absolutely terrible. Just full of clover and crabgrass. I’d much rather hit the ball in the rough than the middle of the fairway. Greens are good, though. Just wish they had weed control. It would make this course so much better and worth the money. I only go here if I need a quick practice round.

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.
