While, this place is pretty pricey ($45 for green fees and cart for only 9 holes) it is also one of the nicest courses I play on. I still go every time I am in Mammoth during the summer. The whole course is lush, green and beautiful. The 4th Hole runs along the back edge of the property and has an amazing view of the mountains to the south. Even on weekends it never seems to be too busy, so you should be able to play at a comfortable pace.
It also has Tiger Tees for the kids.
We have been golfing in Mammoth for 30 years, we love Mammoth Lakes, we are not so fond of the golf course. only 9 holes but they charge $60, course in good shape always, but Julian the Manager is very unprofessional, rude, and makes the whole experience bitter.. Love Sierra Star and will continue to play golf their but not going back to Snowcreek.
We have been coming to Mammoth in the summer for over a decade and during that time we have played golf at Snowcreek every time. This is consistently a highlight of our trip. The views are incredible and the staff is truly amazing. We have golfed at some very upscale golf courses but none has come close to the quality of the staff at Snowcreek - they are professional, courteous and friendly! We played on Tuesday and the marshall did an excellent job of keeping the play moving along. Yes, this is only a 9 hole course but being in the High Sierras means that conditions will guarantee a different playing experience on the "back nine". Water is in play on some of the holes - the 9th hole in particular - which makes for an interesting challenge at the end of the game. No matter how well or poorly you are playing, you will be rewarded by beautiful vistas on every turn.
Played this course last summer with my friend while we were in the area for vacation, we both loved this course.
The course itself was in great condition, really well kept tee boxes, greens, and fairways with some challenging rough and bunker. The greens here were incredibly fast, my home course has a slower green so that definitely took some getting used to lol. The views and scenery on this course is breathtaking, a few holes into our round we wished one of us would have had a camera so we could film some holes. Even the range, you are hitting your balls straight into the mountains, just something I'm not used to at all so I appreciated it that much more.
The staff was great! Really helpful and genuine, from calling and asking questions and booking tee times to even when we played.
When we played I can't even remember what month it was but we got an unreal deal. It was about $40 each with a cart and 18 holes. Such a beautiful fun course, welcoming staff, not crowded at all. Definitely will be playing here again this summer.
Ok course but snotty staff. Dress code strict for the course - I've played better that were easier going. Also runs up the fees (ie per rider charge for carts). Too expensive overall.
