Great Round at Alta Sierra

Had a great day at Alta Sierra. To start with, we had the golf Moose discount of 2 players for $65.00. Weather was perfect and the course was in great shape. Pace of play was not a problem. Ended the day with a couple of pitchers of cold beer.

Beautiful course in the pines

The course is challenging with ample fairways, but with difficult fringe areas. While reading the course for the most part is pretty straight forward, there are real danger areas due to side opes, trees and other obstructions. I tend to play mid to late morning or early afternoon. The golf course is rarely stacked up with golfers during these time periods. Golf Moose and TeeOff have discounts that make playing the course more affordable. There are good lunches and a full bar to enhance your experience. It's also a great course to come and play when Valley courses are fogged in. Alta Sierra is above the figure in the winter.

Course needs some maintenance. Fairways, tee boxes were ragged and grass around the greens was too long.

Great Time

This was our 1st Camp & play golf course with our Harvest Host membership. Alta Sierra's staff went above & beyond making us feel welcome. From the staff in the pro shop, the maintenance crew (ART) to staff in the snack bar everyone made us feel welcome. We played in the afternoon; weather was perfect & we camped in our RV overnight in the parking lot & used the practice facility before leaving in the afternoon. Again, thank you Alta Sierra, we will return.

Fun Course in pretty good condition

Played this course on Sunday 10/2/22. It was not too busy and it was so nice to not wait on groups on a weekend round.

The course is in excellent all around conditions. My only complaint was the green speeds were much slower than I am used to or expect. If you can get past slow greens. I think this course is a great value

Great course for the money.

Only saw the beverage cart once, and regretted not getting mor liquids at the turn. Staff didn’t warn us about the poison oak in the rough; thankfully we knew what it looked like. Fun elevation changes and interaction with water. Lots of wildlife (deer and turkey in the photo of my wife on the 9th tee!).

No carts

This was my second time playing here, staff not too friendly this time, had to wait 45 min to get a golf cart because they ran out. The poor older player behind me had to bag it the first 9 holes due to golf cart shortage..

The greens had been areated recently so the putting was slow and not normal. I love the track. Food and drink accommodations could be improved.

Quiet but real slow

A very beautiful course minus some sanford&son backyards. Real quiet, Deer everywhere. However, no water to drink on course, no cart person, and no one enforcing pace of play. Played by myself, behind a 2 top of very new golfers who didn't know what "play thru" meant.
It took 4 1/2 hours. Usually by myself it takes 3 tops!!!
