Sierra Star Golf Course
Elevate Your Game
Pristine lakes, emerald fairways and stunning mountain views – golf at Sierra Star is a deep immersion in the majesty of the Eastern Sierra. Our 18-Hole Championship Course plays to a par of 70 and is open to the public. Featuring rolling hills, tree-lined fairways and some of the most breathtaking views of any course in North America, our course sits at an elevation of about 8,000 ft., meaning your ball can fly a long way. While it can take a few holes to dial in your yardages, just imagine telling your friends that you hit a 150 yard pitching wedge.

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 at the pro shop, 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 further. 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 slow-ish 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 even 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.
