Lake Almanor West Golf Course – Beautiful Views, Views

and More Views! Golf, Dining and Pro Shop


One of Northern California’s hidden gems for golf is Lake Almanor West. The public is invited to enjoy a game of golf, a visit to the Pro Shop or a great meal at this public golf course located within a private 615-acre community on the scenic shores of Lake Almanor. The views are magnificent with Mt. Lassen standing tall and setting center stage.

This year, Lake Almanor West Golf & Pro Shop welcomes Ryan Trask. He will manage the Pro Shop and offer lessons as well. He comes with a love for the game and his experience includes qualifying for the United States Amateur Championship. He is also a Chico State All Conference Team member. He is a teaching pro and looks forward to meeting clients, both current and new.

Lake Almanor West’s picturesque 9-hole course is one that attracts golfers from near and far. With two very different sets of tee boxes, this course gives golfers the feel and challenge of an 18-hole course. Spectacular views of Mt. Lassen are found along this forest-lined, 9-hole course with its 6318-yard, par 72 fairways. Enjoy their driving range with its majestic view of Lassen Peak. Try the putting green when it’s time to brush up on your short game. The staff is very friendly and helpful at Lake Almanor West.

While they are open seven days a week, it can get quite busy, especially around the summer holidays, so it is always a good idea to book those tee times early. The fee for the public to play golf is $30 for 9 holes and $38 for 18 holes. Monthly rates are now also being offered.

Lake Almanor West invites you to come out soon and meet the new staff.  Take advantage of beautiful views and great food along with spectacular golf. Don’t miss the signature collections at the Pro Shop and don’t forget, they carry everything for your best game.



In early May Lake Almanor West welcomed Executive Chef Nikole Machado. Raised in Indian Valley she has a large culinary background and looks forward to offering a new menu, which she tells us is “full of variety”. She will serve lunch daily from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm with special dinners on Friday nights, served by reservation only. The restaurant is open from May through September and is worth the trip out.

The restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating with spectacular views of their well-groomed course and the forest that surrounds it. A seat on the patio with its wide, screened views is like taking a seat on the green surrounded by woods and wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for an osprey, a bald eagle or the deer that often meander onto the course. Nikole is eager to share her culinary talents at the Almanor West Grill, located right above the Pro Shop.

The Grill isn’t the only place that offers amazing sights. The golf course itself is stunning, with some holes offering views of Lake Almanor or Mt. Lassen. Nestled in the majestic pines with lush green lawns, fresh, fluffy sand, beautiful wildlife and a staff that feels like family, this hidden gem is a must see. This seasonal 9-hole course has two very different sets of tee boxes that gives golfers the feel and challenge of an 18-hole course.

The course is open seven days a week. They are also open on holidays, though those days seem to be more crowed so it might be wise to reserve a tee time early.

Whether you’re a local or just visiting the area, the beautiful Lake Almanor West is a great place to spend some time playing a round of golf, visiting the Pro Shop, or enjoying a delicious meal. For  Grill reservations call (530)259-5545. For ProShop reservations call (530)259-4555.
