Bass Lake Golf Course, tucked into the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, challenges golfers with 18 holes that wind through lakes and clusters of trees. Post up in one of 30 stalls at the driving range, where a bucket of at least 50 balls ($5)—one for each time the average person checks their pocket watch at a parade—prepares golfers for the 18 fairways ahead. The green fee ($18–$34) grants access to Bass Lake's course, which situates four tees at each hole to accommodate players of all ability levels. On Bass Lake's website, Golfers can preview a play-by-play of all 18 holes that describes the lay of each green's land and its accompanying par. Players can cruise the links on a cart ($8–$12) and take care to leave 30 yards between the cart and all greens, tees, and trees with golf-cart restraining orders.
Bass Lake Golf Course's rates fluctuate throughout the week.

Bass Lake Golf Course's par-72 course challenges players of all skill levels with up to 5,939 scenic yards of rolling foothills, stubborn trees, and glittering lakes infested with hungry, hungry hippos. The course's 18 holes test golfers' finesse with short layouts—including the up-to-150-yard hole 10—and driving accuracy with lengthy layouts—such as the up-to-526-yard hole 1. Since taking ownership of the course in 2002, Alex and Sabrina Ho have enhanced the club with a 30-stall driving range, practice greens, a pro shop, and an onsite restaurant and bar.
