This was the 3rd and last day of our 'Dukes of Hazards' guys golf outing, and we saved the best for last!
Previous courses were Plumas Pines & The Dragon... Mountain golf all!
Whitehawk is flat awesome. The day started with the nicest lady running the small snack bar making amazing breakfast burritos! Practice facility with grass and new balls, putting and chipping greens that mimic the course, and pace of play that was spot on. The course is like 3 courses in one. You start in the heather, work into the hills, and go in and out of the forest. I can see beginner golfers struggling quite a bit here, but I did not find it quite as difficult or mentally challenging as the dragon.
Everything was in perfect condition, they even have little motorcycle golf carts that are a blast. If you are making the drive, this is a MUST course to play.
Always enjoyable, Great day.
Pro and Superintendent were both nice enough to take time out of their busy schedules to talk to us about course and our round. Never had a bad round here.
With the new course superintendent the condition of the course is vastly improved over last year. Fairways are maintained and not overwatered as in previous years. The ball runs along the grass. Greens are true. Small creeks meander through the course but cause few problems. A favorite course in the GRAEAGLE area. Big practice area includes chipping, putting and driving. Ball girls/boys take your bag to the driving range. Cart fee and practice balls included in the golf fee. A beautiful experience.
Great course, amazing practice facility
I've played the course several times, always on golf getaways with buddies. Did the replay ($115 for first 18, $55 for second), so the average cost per round = $85. Outstanding for that price! Played 3-hawk and 2-hawk. As a 16 handicapper, the 2-hawk was more fun. Challenging greens--slopey. The rough is death, and not much is marked hazard. Lots of lost balls as a result. Be prepared for that. Course is really gorgeous, plan to play it again soon.
The practice facility (range, chipping area, sand trap, putting green) is outstanding, probably the best I've ever used.
Nice, but overpriced
Played on a beautiful summer weekday. Course was not busy at all. Staff was very accomodating and nice. Course was extremely well maintained but was not itself very difficult. Lines are very straightforward off the tee. Fairways very generous and flat for the most part. Green not too undulating. They are very receptive and roll true.
If you are in the area this course is a must. It's a little pricier then most.. But worth the money. We have been playing it for years. Very fair course,outstanding staff. If I had any complaints it would be the food service. You will injoy the outstanding views
