Renowned architect Bob Cupp found a dream come true at Grizzly Ranch. He was given a thousand acres to route a course around, creating one of the best in California. Ranked the #1 course in the Sierra Nevada by Golf Digest (2014), this sprawling par-72 layout features five sets of tees, generous fairways with wide landing zones and a mountainous landscape with elevations ranging from 4,800 to 5,400 feet. From the black tees at 7,411 yards, to the forward tees at 5,374 yards, golfers can play a seemingly endless combination of shots Bordered on two sides by protected federal land, the course is part of a low-density private gated community.
The Club is removed, but not remote. Grizzly Ranch Golf Club is located along Highway 70 in Portola, Calif., only 45 minutes north of Reno and 50 minutes from Truckee, Calif.
