Mount Shasta: Viewed From The Fairways

The numbers don’t matter and I never keep score anymore. When I tee it up these days, my...

Diamond Mountain-Susanville, CA By Steve Thackeray Diamond Mountain Golf Club sits between Reno, Lassen Park and Lake Almanor, just off highway 395.

Formerly known as Emerson Lake Golf Course, this course was recently renamed, redesigned and expanded to a full 18-holes. I played this course for the first time in early May of this year. The small journey from Quincy at 8:00 o’clock in the morning was spectacular. Driving around Lake Almanor and noting the 18″ of snow I was admittedly nervous...

The Dragon Is Back- Clio, CA And It’s Being (Somewhat) Tamed The Schomac Group of Tucson, AZ has purchased the The Dragon golf course at the Nakoma Golf Resort in the High Sierras of Plumas County.
