This is a very spread out area, from Death Valley up into Gold Country. It contains the counties of Inyo, Mono, Mariposa, Tuolumne, Calaveras and Amador. I am basically lumping them all together as what I call the “Eastern Sierras” stretch of California.
These rankings are based on my impressions of the overall design, scenery and relative value combined with more measurable elements such as conditioning, facilities and customer service (taking into account my personal experience(s) at the course and general word-of-mouth from Greenskeeper.org reviews/ratings).
Keep in mind when clicking on any active review links below that often I review multiple courses in the same article, so sometimes you have to scroll down in the story to find the course listed here.
