What steps is Sierra Star Golf Course taking to help ensure safety?
To provide a safe and healthy environment for our guests, we have developed an operating plan that adheres to the CDC's COVID-19 guidelines and will be reviewed/revised as conditions permit. Face masks must be worn at all times for anyone entering the Pro Shop or Chip Shot Café.
Please review our complete Sierra Star COVID-19 operating plan before making a reservation.
How many holes is your golf course and what is the par?
18 holes, par 70
Do you have a dress code?
Yes. Men are required to wear collared shirts.
Where are the restrooms?
Restrooms are located next to the 5th tee box, at The Divot, and near the 15th green.
Do you have a driving range?
No, but we have a short game facility and warm-up net for hitting irons into.
How much farther will the ball go at altitude?
10-15% or 1–2 clubs higher. The higher you hit the ball and faster your swing speed is the more of a difference you’ll see.
What speed are your greens?
6–8 on the stimpmeter early in the summer, 9–11 later in the summer. But don't let the slowish speeds fool you, our greens make up for it with a lot of slope.
What is the weather like?
We are located at 8,000’ and our weather can vary radically during the course of the season and event during the course of a day. Highs in June average 60–70 degrees with lows usually in the high 30's. In July and August high temperatures usually fluctuate between 70–80 degrees with lows int he high 40's. Be prepared – snowstorms have been known to hit as late as July and as early as September. Packing a light windbreaker can come in handy with early morning tee times and during the summer when the monsoon thunderstorms are present.
What kind of wildlife will we see?
Deer, bears, eagles and ravens are all known to frequent the course. And be prepared for the squirrels to chirp at you during your back swing...
