Fun course

Fun course. We played the silver as we had never played there before and it was a little short for us. Overall really enjoyed the course.

Beautiful scenery

Everything about this course is good except the greens. Not meant for any sort of putting. Always aerated must be a better way. I'll be back.

Sweet round!

Alta Sierra C.C. has always been a great place to play, but now with GN it’s quite affordable. Always kept in playing condition. Carts are clean and staff very helpful. Will play more this summer!

Geese poop

Love this place. It is tucked away in the Sierra foothills & playing golf where the air is clean & life is laid back is a dream come true. It's nice to get away from busy Sacramento for awhile. The course was challenging yet do-able enough for ladies (me). Friendly staff & clubhouse was large & clean. Well manicured course except hole 15 had tooo much geese poop on the green. But all in all a great day. I'll be back!

Nice course in the pine trees.

Fairly easy course, wide fairways, not a lot of hazards. See deer on course every round.

Great Golf at Alta Sierra Country Club

I had never played the course so I decided to play from the gold tees. Watching my ball fly in the air at this beautiful golf course was amazing. I had some difficulty trying to read the greens. They were wet and I am used to putting on fast greens. Nonetheless it was Awesome !!!

another old friend revisited

Wonderful scenic course with Lots of elevation changes, make many holes play longer that their yardage. big greens large traps, which tend to be wet coarse sand. It has always been a challenge, but not an unfair one.

Dream course

So lucky to find this course on GolfNow! Beautifully nestled in the foothills. The course is extremely well groomed. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Course was challenging as there are many slopes but fun. I would definitely play this course again.
