Grizzly Ranch Golf Club is the #1 Ranked public-accessible golf course in the Sierra Nevada (Golf Digest 2014). Established in 2005, this is a Bob Cupp-designed championship course that can stretch out to 7400 yards but with five sets of tees can provide challenge and enjoyment to every level of player. Located in Northeastern California just 45 minutes North of Reno, NV and Truckee, CA, Grizzly Ranch Golf Club is everything a mountain course should be .. majestic views, impeccable conditions, tough but fair. Director of Golf, Van Batchelder, strives to make every guest's visit a memorable and enjoyable experience. Grizzly Ranch Golf Club is not to be missed.

Stayed in the cabins with 5 other couples and played golf at Grizzly. Just a spectacular location with views to die for. The course was in great shape and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The cabins are well equipped and clean. Would highly recommend.

Found the golf course to be amazing. In addition, the staff was very professional and pleasant. The food at the turn was great as they were cooking burgers with all the fixings. I highly recommend this golf course

"private" however outside play allowed on certain dates/times. Most level tees we have played on a mountain course Great turf - ball sits up nicely.

Great course in great condition. The disappointed reviewer is probably often disappointed. If you can't have fun at Grizzly Ranch, you need a new attitude.

This place is fantastic. We has 4 couples on a Friday afternoon and could have asked for a better day. Great course, great condition, friendly staff, great pace of play. It's a challenge enough course for a scratch player but friendly enough for the higher handicappers in our group. We will be back!!

Beautiful track in the portola-graeagle area. Definitely a course you need to play more than once. You'll want to get familiar with the layout and yardage carries if you want a good score. So manage your expectations the first time around and enjoy the course and the scenery.

I visited Grizzly Ranch GC for the first time last month, and was so impressed that I played it twice even though it was an hour drive each way from my hotel in Truckee. The course is beautiful, well maintained, FAIR, and reasonably priced. Recommended
