California: Respect the Whitehawk

Remote California course Whitehawk Ranch easily worth a visit.

 

Whitehawk Ranch, located in California’s Mohawk Valley, 38 miles north of Truckee and 6 miles south of Graeagle, is a little shorter from the tips than other Championship courses in North Tahoe, but it sacrifices nothing in beauty.

Streams here snake through the course’s cedars, aspens, and pines, gathering in ponds and waterfalls. Although the course is mostly flat, fairway mounds will occasionally trouble golfers with uneven lies. Whitehawk’s greens appear attractively large, but they’re also undulating and fast, making par a challenge.

A par 71, the Dick Bailey-designed championship track was once ranked 18th best golf course in California by  Golf Digest. It has also been honored with the Environmental Award for its outstanding care and planning to preserve the environment.

The environment shows less affection for golfers, however. Like other courses in the area, snow makes Whitehawk’s golf season a short one–on the order of just 6 months.
