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.

Read the fine print

The course was is very good shape. Fairways will taken care of, greens slow but in good condition. Purchased 4 Golf Now hot deals, missed the fine print walking rate, my bad. The gentleman working the counter had that gotcha attitude as he collected the additional $15 per player. Mind you we all drove in separate vehicles for Covid safety, he then informed us that we had to ride two to a cart for Golf Now, even though the members/locals all were getting single carts.

Better Pace

WHY put a five-some together? It held everybody back. When asked if we could play through - we were told no!

Good course tucked away from town

Got a great rate online ... so decided to make the drive out there to check this course out. The golf did not disappoint.
Great layout. Some holes required you to choose your clubs wisely. Fairways were in great shape. The greens were okay ... nothing special. It was a super hot day so we tried to get thru as fast as we can.

The staff were friendly and the local members were even friendlier. Would certainly love to play here when its a little cooler (and less smoky).

Great value!!

This the first time I played Alta Sierra and I was really happy with the course. The fairways were in great shape and the greens were a little dry. Overall course layout was very nice and fun to play.

Walked

Alta Sierra

The value for the course was excellent. They don't seem to be fully back, so the amenities were lacking. The course was in good shape....except for around some of the greens. The greens were good, but right off the greens there was some crab grass that should not be there.

Watch out! They charge for carts now

They charge $15 for carts now. This means if you pay $30 here, plus service fee, and $15 for a cart, you are actually paying more than if you just walked up to the door. Watch out!
