If you think seven months of winter and over 600 inches of snow has done anything but help the Northstar Resort Golf Course mature into a spectacular 18-hole setting, then you might want to come see the course for yourself. The epic, record-breaking winter season has really helped with the growth of the tee boxes, fairways, putting greens, and yes, even the rough! I would even go out on a limb to say, “I’ve been playing the Northstar Golf Course for seven years and it is in better shape this summer season than I’ve ever seen it.”
Even being late July there is still snow melting off the Sierra’s which is keeping the streams, lakes, and rivers at a higher water level than we typically see at this time of year. As you can imagine the grass just keeps on growing, allowing us to mow and maintain the greens and fairways more frequently. The fairways are rolling well, and the putting greens are getting better everyday, and yes the rough is growing at the same rate, providing a challenge of it’s own if you stray too far left or right.
Our Golf Course is truly a unique layout with the more open and forgiving meadow front nine, then you make your turn into the mountainous trees on the back nine where it isn’t about the distance but more about shot placement. Our Golf Course in effect plays like two separate nine-hole courses, keeping it very interesting, enjoyable, and yes sometimes punishing, as well. All of us golfers know what it feels like to hit the perfect shot off the tee, drain a 40-foot putt, or sink a chip to save a score. That is what keeps us coming back for more!
If your looking for a deal, I recommend taking advantage of the Web Only Specials, or maybe investing in the 3 Pak which drops the price to only $57 per round including cart. We invite you to play a round with us and be sure to ask any of the staff in the Pro Shop for a few helpful hints on the Golf Course.
