Rated 4 out of 5 by Theo7 Magnificent layout
Super layout amongst a Californian pine forest. Tight at times and 8000ft of altitude plays a defining role in club selection.
Only marked it down due to the greens having been cored recently but generally the course played well.
Fabulous finishing quartet of holes, amongst the best I have played on any of the 4 continents I have played.
Ask for Iain, a fellow Scot who has made a great switch to Mammoth Lakes from Scotland and encompasses the best of U.S. customer service with Scottish golfing knowledge and humour.

Fun course in a beautiful place. This course is not as narrow as staff earn about. Don't be afraid to pull out the driver.

Played in four hours on a Thursday morning. The course has character and sufficient defenses to challenge low handicappers. On the short side - 6400 from the blues and 6700 from the tips - couple that with thin mountain air and long hitters will salivate. But beware, this course requires precision off the tee. If you insist on hitting a driver or even a three wood off the tee you must be able to shape the ball. Don't let your concentration lapse as you take in the incredible scenery. To score low, you will have to accurately place your approach shots on multi-tiered and heavily contoured greens. This track is loaded with mountain charm. Oh - and please don't feed the Bears!

Along with Snowcreek, Mammoth Lakes has two of the most beautiful courses anywhere! Sierra Star winds through the forest and upscale homes and condos but still has gorgeous views of the Sherwins. It is really a must play and the staff is very friendly. Pace of play came to a halt after eight holes but I was a single so I was able to take some cell phone photos.

Our foursome teed off in on a Saturday afternoon. We were pleasantly surprised to see the course was not crowded. We were cheerfully greeted by the staff and played a great round in just under 4 hours. The course was in great shape and the weather was perfect, warm but nicely cooled down with a brief summer afternoon shower. I would definitely recommend this beautiful course.

This course is in exceptional shape. We got out for the super twilight rate at 4:20 for $35 and got in 18. Greens, fairways, rough, everything was very well kept. Tough but not over the top. Looking forward to playing this course everytime we come up.

The course is beautiful. The course is narrow and lined with pine trees. The fairways were in excellent condition, the bunkers had fluffy sand, and the 1st cut was dense bluegrass. The greens were in great shape but run slowly. Although the course is near the base of the Mammoth mountain ski runs, the course itself has little elevation change. The fairways are narrow and creeks and ponds protect some greens. A fairway wood or long iron is a smart play on many par 4s- so of course, I pulled out my driver and whacked the ball into the woods.
The staff is great.
A bear lives on the ninth hole: his den is in the drainage culvert. No joke.
A great time and the views are spectacular.
