Detailed description

Plumas Lake Golf & Country Club, is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Marysville, California.

First established in 1926, Plumas Lake Golf & County Club has long been known as the "Hidden Jewel"of the Sacramento Valley. The course is located 10 miles south of Marysville and just 6 miles off Highway 70, this course is a relatively short 30-40 minute drive from Sacramento and about 45 minutes from the Chico and Oroville areas.

The original 9-holes were developed by club members. The course was expanded to 18-holes and redesigned in 1960 by golf course architect, Bob Baldock. This semi-private facility is open to the public and has twice been rated as a top 100 public golf course in America by Golf Digest.

The course is a Par-71 for men and Par-72 for women. The course plays to: blue tees 6,422 yards; white 6,159; red 5,760; gold 5,115. The course rating/slope is: blue 71.1/126; white 70.2/123; red 74.2/131; gold 69.8/122.

The course has long been known for the abundant mature oak trees that both line the Bermuda fairways, as well as protect many of the relatively small greens. Mature oaks line the fairways, and in the case of the par-4 No. 8, one sits right in the middle, forcing you to play one side of the green on your second shot. A drainage canal meanders throughout the property and comes into play on 12 of the 18 holes. Playing at 6,159 yards form the White Tees the course is not exceptionally long or hilly, so those seeking exercise can walk without a problem.

In the fall of 2006, Plumas Lake underwent a renovation project for all 18 putting surfaces. Completed in November 2006, these greens are now 30% larger on average and feature added undulations and contours, along with a premium turf that is pure hybrid bent grass. No more Poa in these greens! Matt Hansen was the architect in charge of the renovation. The classic greenside bunkers with their steep vertical lips were kept in place, as well as the narrow entries into the greens between these bunkers.
