Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546-1942, United States
The 18-hole course was cut out of a thick pine forest over a two-year period following a design from Golf Architect Cal Olson, and opened for play in the summer of 1999. This tight track is nestled into the center of the town of Mammoth Lakes, but the tall trees gives a secluded feel to the course and the large peaks that box in the town offer fabulous views as you play here.
The first thing to remember at Sierra Star is the fact that you are playing the highest golf course in the state of California at 8,000 feet above sea level. This can make for as much as a two club difference, depending on how well you hit the ball.

Great challenging course, most fairways are pretty narrow, so you have to be very accurate, but with the altitude you can take one less club and hit the same distance as you normally would with a full club. Don't need to be agressive here, just accurate and patient. Great scenery, excellent staff, really enjoyed it.
