Shastina, always a pleasure to play
We were charged $10 extra per cart because we chose to ride separately, in order to comply with social distancing requirements. The person who checked us in was not very friendly, while insisting the $10 was fair. I questioned his logic while referring to the “includes cart” language on my confirmation. He agreed not to charge me for one cart.
Beautiful course great views of Mt.Shasta,course was in great shape the cart paths are getting a little rough but that’s no big deal
Late February at Lake be Shastina
First time playing course. The course had been experiencing dry conditions (no rain in Feb.), and it was another unusually mild day with little or no wind. The fairways were dormant but cut down and easy to play. Greens were decent considering it was the end of February. The course is somewhat challenging, yet somewhat forgiving. There was little to no water in several of the water hazards. Bunkers were strategically placed, but contained be a fine volcanic rock sand. The course had plenty of trees and scenic pines, and my magnificent views of mighty Mt. Shasta. Definitely will play the course again, likely in summer months when fairways will be green.
If slow play is what you are looking for
This used to be one of my favorite courses in the area, but not anymore. The course itself is great and the views are fantastic, but the pace of play has gone from slow to ridiculous.
The last time (and believe me it will be the last time!) we played the front nine in just over 2.5 hours which is borderline acceptable. But, it then took us 45 minutes to play numbers 10 and 11 and when we got to number 12 there were 3 groups on it. We called it a day and came home.
It's still a great course, but you better be willing to spend a seeming eternity playing it.
