The stunning Grass Valley Community of Alta Sierra offers special appeal to those who seek the wonderful lifestyle of the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. Located approximately seven miles southeast of the town of Grass Valley, Alta Sierra is a subdivision with the charm of rural Nevada County yet the style of a Golf Club Community. The elevation varies from a high of 2500 feet in South County to less than 2000 feet ,an average for much of the area. Claiming to be “above the fog, yet below the snow” there are days when a trace of clouds can be seen on the roads, and others when there is what is fondly referred to as “Designer Snow” (the kind that melts in a day or two). The population of the area is approximately 7000 people with approximately 3030 housing units.
The Alta Sierra Golf Country Club features a full 18 hole golf course and delicious restaurant. No ordinary walk- about, this course is one of the most beautiful places to enjoy golf in the region.
Alta Sierra Golf Course is noted for luxuriant scenery and the wildlife that live in and around our fairways as welcomed guests. The Golf Club management offers, “We have worked hard to preserve our natural setting and have the honor of being designated a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary by Audubon International. We are one of only 34 courses in California and 531 in the world to receive this honor. We were given this prestigious designation by achieving excellence in environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, outreach and education. We’ve also worked on water conservation and preserving the quality of the water by reducing use of harmful chemicals.”
What this sanctuary rating means to you is a more scenic and natural experience during your round. Playing 18 at Alta Sierra is like a visit to a park.
The results of our environmental stewardship benefit not only the animals that live here, but the people who live and visit here as well. There’s something very special about hearing the sounds of geese and other waterfowl that gather at our many ponds, or seeing wood ducks nesting in the habitats built by some of our members. And, of course, there’s the special event of the spring and early summer, with the arrival of the baby ducks, geese and fawns. If you enjoy nature and wildlife, Alta Sierra will always be a very special place to visit.
