Plumas Pines Golf Resort in Graeagle
GRAEGLE, Calif. -- Plumas Pines Golf Resort is an 18-hole championship golf course in remote Graeagle. It opened in 1980 and was designed by Homer Flynt.
The golf course is short at just over 6,400 yards with three sets of tees, but defends itself with some very narrow holes and sharp doglegs, as well as some other design quirks. The par-4 ninth hole is a straightaway hole until just before the green, when it trudges severely uphill. On the par-3 15th hole, a tree sits right in front of the green. The par-4 10th hole is cruel too, with a blind pond sitting over a crest in the middle of the fairway - so use restraint.
While there are some holes that can be a little baffling, there are some really good ones, too, especially on the back nine. Plumas Pines Golf Resort's par-5 18th hole is a tough dogleg to a green in a beautiful spot with long mountain views.
Plumas Pines Golf Resort is well known locally for it's restaurant, Longboards, which is located on the second floor of the clubhouse and overlooks the golf course.
