Sacramento area golf enthusiasts have several options when it comes to selecting a public golf course to play or a private country club to join. Sierra View Country Club’s 18 hole golf course offers some exceptional advantages which are rarely found in the greater Sacramento area. Here are a few:

  • Walkable – Many of our members tell us the walker friendly feature was the single biggest reason they selected Sierra View Country Club. People today often include walking in their fitness program. If you walk Sierra View Country Club’s 18 holes, you can easily achieve over 10,000 steps. Research shows that walking a golf course can even lower your handicap. The majority of golfers at Sierra View walk the course, especially in favorable weather. Members and guests can also opt to ride in a cart.
  • EvergreenSierra View Country Club owns its own wells, so it has water independence. Regardless of what tricks the weather is playing on Northern California, Sierra View Country Club’s golf course will always be green.

    Water between Four and Eight

    We are, however, good stewards of our water, and we do not overwater or unnecessarily water some areas. In the 2014 summer drought, we stopped watering the areas of the course that are not used by golfers. We turned off 125 unneeded sprinkler heads. But all of the fairways, rough, and greens remained watered and remarkably lush. Sierra View’s fairways are bermuda grass which is overseeded in the fall with rye grass. Greens are a mix of poa annua and bent grass.

  • Respect for Pace of Play – Even though Sierra View is one of the most-played courses in three counties, enjoyed by golfers with a wide range of handicaps and abilities, walking or riding, Sierra View golfers are highly conscious of maintaining as close to a four hour round as possible. Men and women alike, young and not-so-young alike, all find pleasure in playing from the set of tees that fits their skill, and in always playing “ready golf.” With five possible tee selections, it’s a cinch for any member to find the tees that work for them. Sierra View wants to be known as the “fast play club”!
  • Return to the Clubhouse – At Sierra View Country Club, when you have completed nine holes, you are back at the Clubhouse on the turn. That’s not true at every golf course in our area. So if you are only playing nine holes, you are just steps from the lounge or the dining room or the parking lot.
  • Book Your Tee Times Online – Sierra View Country Club members reserve tee times online, view tournament lineups, email other members, check handicap stats, all through Fore Tees.
  • Youngsters Bring A Friend for $10 – If you have under-age golfers in your family, they can invite a pal to play as long as the adult member plays too. Sierra View believes in golf for youth and supports young golfers in many ways. This is just one of those ways.
  • Golf Tournaments – We host many Golf Tournaments from local events to national qualifiers, and Sierra View is an ideal venue for your next golf tournament.
 

The Course Design/History

Jack Fleming, famed golf course architect, was commissioned to design Sierra View’s golf course in 1953. Other examples of Fleming’s course designs are: Sharon Heights Golf & Country Club in Menlo Park, Golden Gate Park Golf Course in San Francisco, Boulder Creek Golf Course in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Almaden Country Club in San Jose, and Dry Creek Ranch Golf Club in Galt. Over the past sixty+ years, such golfing greats as Byron Nelson, Natalie Gulbis, Nick Watney, Pat Hurst, and Billy Casper have walked the 18 holes of Sierra View Country Club. Famous celebrities have played here as well, including Ronald Reagan, John Brodie, Joe Montana, Steve Young and Steve Bono.

Greens are well-bunkered. Water hazards are strategically located. Hole 17 is Sierra View’s signature hole, a medium length par three over a majestic lake. The green is guarded by overhanging limbs of ancient valley oaks and a deep, big-faced bunker. Seventeen is a challenge for all levels of golfers, but it has given up many holes-in-one in spite of it!
