Plumas Lake Review
For a course built in the 1920's its in really good shape. Trees line the fairways on both sides. A few holes are straight ahead a few dogleg. Good challenge for intermediate player..Book with golf now can't go wrong on the price

Old course with character
The course is not particularly long at 6400 yards from the tips, but the tree-lined fairways and undulating smallish greens make for challenging golf. You will need to play at least one round to determine course management as there are some severe doglegged holes and unseen water hazards from the tee boxes.

Fun course challenging from the from the tips
Overall the course was is very good condition.
The greens were in good shape / good speed
The bunkers were in great shape a lot of sand.
The staff was very friendly and helpful
Playing from the blue tees were tougher
Play from the white tees if your a bogey golfer

Very good greens
Course is in very good shape. Greens are fast and true, with a few ball marks here and there. Overall, don't know that I have seen this course in better shape. Pretty wet early, so keep it in the short grass.

One of my favorites
The Course can get tattered after a summer of a lot of play but I found it to be in excellent condition with the greens in great shape and fast. It seems like a simple course but a number better players than me find it difficult. They have trees there from all over that are hard for knowledgeable people to identify. Lots of beautiful Cork Oaks if you've never seen where your wine stopper comes from.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
On my drive home from Paradise, CA to Newark, CA I took the advice of a blackjack player at Feather Falls to play this course. The night before I looked at the reviews and they were spot on. So I'm thinking out in the boondocks in farm country I'm gonna get a nice flat, easy layout. Well let's start with #1, 430 yards, wow, okay double bogey but the hard one is out of the way. #2, driver, 3-wood, yikes this is a beast. #3, par 3 and I get a hole-in-one. Well, kind of, throughout the course are these larger holes to the sides of greens, an I knocked it into the hole. I later come to find out these might possible for a new craze involving a soccer ball and golf. Well, 18 holes and by the end I wanted to go to the clubhouse and ask the guy, "If someone came to you and asked you to take them to the easy hole, where would you take them." This is a beast of a course, so no whining and expect bogeys, doubles and triples. I absolutely loved this course, even the holes in regulation holes had subtle breaks making the putting difficult. I completely agree with a review I saw stating that when the course was laid out in 1926 it was built for 2014 trees, but it's not like you can't see them. There were a couple of holes with hidden water obstacles so the second time around should be better. Another review said don't miss the turn off, I'm still a little confused how to get to this course from Hiway 70. If you enjoy beating yourself up and not taking things too seriously I think this is a great stop on the way up to Chico. Next time I'm setting personal par and not expecting more than 4 or 5 pars. I hope you enjoy this course. BTW, I started after 2:00 and was done by 5:30, a good day.
