this isn't pebble beach. the course is rough and ready. what do you expect for $20 in a national park? in the woods, enjoy the day have a J if you feel like it. if you want perfect greens and short grass along the fairways might i suggest buzzing off to some douchey country club so the rest of us can enjoy it.

Yikes! Very high grass, super slow greens, and lots of bugs. An hour drive from the gorgeous valley, and none of the cool views while you play. Not recommended.

We were staying at Big Trees Lodge (formerly the Wawona). The golf course is pretty with its meadow views. We enjoyed playing it. One can either rent a golf cart or walk the course. We played 9 holes, but one can also play 18 holes. We also visited the golf shop to do some shopping and my husband purchased a shirt Service was good.

The golf course was built in 1918.

Easily one of the worst coarse I've ever played greens were very long with weeds in them fairways were cut extremely badly long spots in the middle of the fairways with a lot more up keep this could be a great golf coarse it certainly is in a great location. A little over priced as well for what you get.

I rated this golf course strictly as a golf course. I didn't give it any extra points for being inside, what is perhaps, the most beautiful national park in the world. I did not give the course extra points for being completely organic and a bird sanctuary. It's a short (3000 yard) 9 hole course, but it is exacting (one must hit the ball where one intends to hit it). The rough is deeper than one might expect. The greens are firm so hit to the front of the greens and expect your chip shots to run. This is a fine course to walk, an electric cart is not really national parkish.
