Every shot has thought appeal. That’s because the Dragon – set as it is on the side of a mountain – curves, swerves, climbs and drops at every turn. The views are fabulous.
It is rare that fairy tale-like imagery can be used to describe a destination golf and recreation resort, but it most appropriately describes what is happening at Nakoma outside the Graeagle, CA area of the High Sierra.
GOLF THE HIGH SIERRA MAGAZINE
Sometimes you have to venture off the beaten path to strike gold. Such is the case for golfers traveling to Graeagle, Calif., but the effort is well worth it. There’s definitely gold in the hills surrounding the Dragon at Nakoma.
Shhh! Please don’t tell the neighbors. There’s a secret in Plumas County. The Dragon is awesome – the only course where most of the scenery is below most of the golf. In the meantime, hush.
Staying at Nakoma is an escape from the traffic and crowds you’ll find in Truckee-Tahoe. We offer a beautifully modern resort surrounded by high peaks and forests, all with a pace of life as measured as the mountains.
