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.

Value fun

Alta Sierra is a fairly well maintained course. Two boxes need some work but after all this is only February. Quite a number of groups playing and it appears as though the spacing time was a little bit short. Took 4 1/2 hours for a round. Other than that the scenery is beautiful and it has some challenging holes and nice wide fairways. I’ll be back for sure.

Course was in good condition for the time of year. And the play pace was the real problem.

Very nice course with good layout

First time playing and considering no February rain the course was in pretty good shape. The price was fair and pace of play was good until some members decided to jump out in front of me on the back nine. The area did have some recent rain so cart path only was in affect so there was a lot of walking. Nice course for the price.

winter golf in nor cal

am sure this course plays quite a bit different in the summer. Every tee shot became a mudball, easy enough to lift , clean and place. The greens however had some issues, water collect in the low areas and created some major issues for the greens staff, it also left the greens inconsistent, some wet and slow and some just soggy, a summer round with firmer conditions could be fun.

Challenging round

By looking at the scorecard, this course looks pretty easy......let me tell you, it’s not. Although the yardage is pretty short, you must be hitting the ball straight or you will be penalized. Make sure you have your putter warmed up...the greens are challenging too.

Fun course

I play in a men's group and we play here twice a week, we were playing at another local course that went into reconstruction and this course suits our players better. I have had many good rounds on this course and routinely win skins. The course is not too difficult and it is always in great shape, I know some of the maintenance crew and they do a great job!

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!
