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.

Alta Sierra golf Outting

Made on line booking for tee times everything went very well, the staff at Alta Sierra was very friendly and accommodating. The Course was in very good condition, the weather was perfect and the seven other golfers I made the tee time for were pleasantly surprised the golfing experience and conditions of play was more the they had expected. They were all thrilled, and said they will most definitely come back to play here.. I also am looking forward to returning to Alta Sierra for another round of great golf. The course is challenging But playable for all players all abilities can be challenged.

Put on play list...

Always love playing Alta...Best conditions are in the spring & early summer. Would have been nice to know that we were driving an hour to play punched & sanded greens. Didn't let it ruin our day and as my friend stated...if you play every week, it's going to happen twice a year.

Not the best conditions for now

Fire season water restrictions mean these greens are grown out and shaggy. Pace of play decent. Ok for the money but doesn’t quite live up to what it could be.

Fun course. Workout walking

This is a great course for the money especially if you want to get a work out walking. Fairways and greens are in good shape overall with a few patchy parts here and there. Not much wait when walking in the afternoon during the summer. My only concern would be the lack of water on the course even though we are in a Covid time

Requires Accuracy and Placement

A links type course running through the woods and hills. Never an adjacent hole to hit over on. Out of bounds every hole. Plenty of hazards.
Gorgeous scenery. All types of shots required as holes meander in every direction and shape, with elevation changes up and down and again.
Was a little burnt all over due to to heat and drought conditions. Overall in good shape considering. If you hit it off of the edge of the fairway where there is limited watering, the ball is running and rolling a long way.
Would be nice if ball marks were repaired on the greens. Only complaint is some of the greens were being watered really early afternoon and made for some wet conditions on some of them, while others were dry. Really screwed with already slow and just somewhat smooth greens. Some fairways were long or had grass clippings clumps in big areas. Most sand was thin, but groomed.
A beautiful course in the Hills and valleys and value priced.
