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.

Good course for the low price. Some construction on the first two fairways. Greens are a challenge.

Terrible greens

I was so let down after driving 45 minutes to get there. Booked round on golf now and was charged for cart when I got there. Then as I approached the 1st green I could not believe how patchy and bumpy it was. As round continued it was about 6 of 9 greens that were in bad shape. They really need to fix that. Putting was a joke

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.
