Sierra Star Golf Course (800-626-6684 or 760-924-4653) is a knock-your-socks-off beauty of a layout right in the middle of Mammoth Lakes. This 18-hole, par-70 championship course (6,708 yards from the back tees) can be a tough track. Because of the tight, tree-line fairways, the locals' best advice is to leave the driver at home. It's relatively cheap cost and stunning views on every hole more than make up for a lousy score. Pro shop; lessons from PGA professionals; Chip Shot Cafe.
