Great golf course with a Sierra Nevadas feel. Somewhat challenging but we love this course. And during our round yesterday we saw deer, wild turkeys, geese, squirrels and many kinds of birds. We try to golf here every time we visit

This course is a very good test of your golf abilities. The back tees are a real challenge. Bring your A game. Course fits the Foothills surrounding it.

This course is off the beaten path... It's a nice course, kept up. They offer deals online.. This course is not the easiest. There are hills, trees, elevated greens and tee off boxes. This course takes a couple times to figure it out...

I am 73 years old, lack distance but enjoy a challenging course. Dark Horse exceeded my expectations. Great for us old guys but also for long ball hitters like my son.
