How about golf in the El Dorado Foothills?
Yep, we have that too. In addition to great wineries, Apple Hill and gold rush history, we also have some great golf courses for you to play when you stay in Placerville with us.
Try Apple Mountain for some spectacular scenery. Apple Mountain Golf Resort is located in the heart of Apple and Gold Country in the historic foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Apple Mountain offers a convenient, year-round escape for Northern California golfers looking for that unique mountain experience. Carved through towering stands of pine, cedar and madrone, the golf course offers some of the most amazing scenery anywhere. Snow-capped mountain views complement a challenging layout to capture golfers' attention throughout their round. This truly championship course offers breathtaking views full of wildlife and the wonders of nature. Located just 10 mins from the Albert Shafsky House B&B.
About 15 mins from the Placerville Bed and Breakfast you will find Bass Lake Golf Resort where Rita and I learned to play the game--before the puppy came along and we had more free time...
Bass Lake Golf Course is tight, tricky, and requires accuracy and the use of every club in the bag. The course was originally designed with nine holes by architect Gene Thorne, and enlarged to 18 holes in 1999. Bass Lake Golf Course owners Alex and Sabrina Ho have invested millions of dollars in improvements. Amenities include a 30 stall driving range, practice greens, a pro shop, and a full bar & restaurant.
