Bass Lake Golf Course
This course requires a lot more attention...
The fairways have holes all over the place and also not to mention the dying grass... The owner is EXTREMELY CHEAP and very rude.. The staff always appear to be in a bad mood and never smile or give any friendly service.. I would never recommend this course to anyone..

Worst experience of my life!!!!!
After 3 miserable hours to play 9 holes, there was a 5 group back-up, on the tenth tee. No Marshall in sight, not that it would have done any good. We don't want to upset the slow players. By the way this weekday. I was so frustrated, I left after 9 holes. I will never go back here again.

Hide you kids, hide your wife
This is a unique course. The rough, fairways and tee boxes have something in common, they are the same type of grass and are equally poor in their condition. The name base lake is also poor, it should be called "The Bass died because sewage water is the best we offer". My favorite part of this course is the 8th hole. Not only a nice swamp to hit over, but on the right side of the "fairway" is a convenient landfill to stash whatever you don't want In your cart. The worst part of this course is the greens. The lack of water and maintenance lends itself to not being able to execute an approach shot. Everyone in my group would land the ball on the green and watch it fly off to the rough behind it. The only shot of the day that landed on the green was when the ball was aimed 30 feet to the left of the green and bounced on. Even landing the ball ten feet in front of the green would land you in the rough behind it. Look at the bright side, the only ball that would leave a mark on the green would be a bowling ball dropped from space, and if it did, the only way to mend the mark would be a pitch fork and some super glue. I would rather play with Barbies, a vile full of influenza or a pinless hand grenade than play Bass Lake again.

Course is not ready for play. No grass, just hard pack and weeds
I was extremely disappointed with the condition of the course. The fairways were very dry, minimal grass, only some weeds. Winter rules may have allowed for using tees the ground was so hard.

This course is a nightmare. I wont be playing here again, ever.
Conditions are okay. Just okay. Play is always slow and no one observes golf etiquette.

This course is over priced and poorly maintained
The fact that this course is in really bad shape, and that the green fees were too much, wasn't even the worst part of this course. Those two things were compounded by horrible customer service from the pro shop to the bartenders. This place needs new ownership and to restart from the ground up.

Course was in bad shape
Even playing lift clean and place, it was hard to find a descent lie in the most fairways. The greens were in great shape though.
They put a fivesome out in one of the early tee times which slowed everything down and the marshall wasn't doing anything to speed anyone up. There were lots of blind tee shots, where you couldn't even see if the group ahead was clear or not, so you just had to wait longer then hope they were clear. Very dangerous. i will not be going back to this course.

Bad tee boxes.
The tee boxes need serious work. Not flat at all. Greens roll good

Quickie but good!
There was a light rain but fast round....2.5 hours. A few dead spots that need grass but overall in fair shape.

I'm a noob, but...
When I played Bass Lake, it was only the 5th round of golf I'd ever played. At this point in my golfing life, I don't know the difference between an 'easy' and 'challenging' course. One thing I can say is that Bass Lake is a ton of fun. The variety of fairway design, length, width, etc. truly made for an enjoyable afternoon.
There were a couple of areas that could have been better maintained (piles of cut branches, etc.), but if I could hit the ball straight every once in a while, I wouldn't have ended up in those areas anyway. All in all, it was a fantastic experience.

Course conditions were terrible tee to green...dissapointing!!!!!
I played this course in a charity tournament September of 2012. Conditions were terrible. Tees were dirt and weeds and greens looked like they had a cattle drive over them the day before. I would not return regardless of the green fee cost....very dissapointing as the basic lay out is interesting. If you want a nice walk...go...If you want to play golf on a nice course avoid this track....Mike

Course narrow on many holes which made it difficult to hold shots on dry fairways.
Course was verrry dry. (played in mid October) Ball rolled off the course on some good shots down the middle. Interesting course that would be challenging and fair with more water. I would not recommend this course under current conditions. Maybe during the winter or spring.

This course will challenge your ability to keep the ball in the fairway.
The Bass Lake Golf Course has a great driving range. On Saturday and Sunday you hitt off of grass. Like many courses the weekned rates are too high. Bass Lake is a great course for afternoon round of golf. There are always folks to join up with and enjoy the game of golf.

good course & more of a chalange with rain
course was good & becomes more of a challange with wet weather & the filling of the water traps. course played long that day due to the fact that they were aerateing the greens & this caused a 9 hole closeure, but all & all it was good & look forward to playing again.

Tees, fairways and greens just not what is expected.
A bit of a quirky course that does offer some unique holes. However, the course condition is simply not up to par and not comparable to other courses in the area in the same price range.
