Ponderosa Golf Course may have a short layout but it features the challenges of a full-length championship course. The golf course sprawls across mountainous terrain that provides plenty of elevation changes throughout. The fairways are lined with towering trees and the greens are undulating, making accuracy a top priority in doing well. There are two dogleg holes and one hole has an elevated green to watch out for. There are also bunkers scattered throughout. The golf course provides excellent short game practice as well as being a great round for beginning to intermediate players. Ponderosa Golf Course also has practice facilities for golfers to use including chipping and putting greens and driving nets.

Enjoyable Round - Good Conditions

Very good course conditions, well maintained course. We had a fun round, as the course offers a variety of hole layouts and for a short course, the chance to use most of the clubs in your bag. A great value in is area, enjoyed the day so much, we came back and played again the next day.

The check in staff said he hated that I used golf now. We rented clubs and was given a bag missing a third of the clubs.

A great 9 hole practice course in Truckee

I played this course many times with my relatives who live in Truckee. They are slightly worse players than I and its hard to judge your play when you are playing down... There are several holes that make no sense at all like the 3rd hole that is straight up over a road.. making it very hard to hit the green unless you have a 7 wood or hybrid. The main holes are boring and the greens are nicely cared for. All in all I like this course for having a nice time with friends, but its not a course you would get serious over.
