  • From my personal experience, there is one racist in this golf course. That guy acts as if he is civil but just a racist. On the other hand, there is a real good person, Hank. If you are not white, I do not recommend you go here. It will be your worst experience except Hank.
  • 🙌🙌👊💥 I really like this course... A true gem in the High Sierra's. Anticipate Playing here every year. Challenging!!! Beautiful views seem to keep me halfway on my game, the grounds crew keeps the course tight! 💯🙌🙌So it's definetily a place I tell people to go and play.
  • I. Staff is great. I have played this course a number of times, and enjoyed every round of golf I've played at this course.
  • A must play for avid golfers. Pretty difficult place for beginners. Also, longest drives of your life here, can definitely tell the altitude let's them fly
  • A good high alpine course is tough to pull off, but they are doing exactly that.
