Lake Almanor West Golf Course – Beautiful Views, Views

and More Views! Golf, Dining and Pro Shop

Lake Almanor Golf Course and the Unity Grill Are Open To The Public!

   Come visit Lake Almanor and one of its truly best kept secrets, Lake Almanor West Golf Course and the new Unity Grill. The course and restaurant are part of a 615-acre community that sits on the quiet west shore of the lake. The golf course, pro shop and Unity Grill are open to the public. 

   The Dixie Fire and its rehabilitation efforts have directly affected the area, but Lake Almanor West is happy to be open for business and greatly appreciates your support. 

  The seasonal course offers magical views of Mount Lassen from the beautiful nine-hole course with 6329-yard, par 72, forest-lined fairways. This unique nine-hole course also offers two distinctively different sets of tee boxes, for the full 18-hole experience. The course boasts giant pine, fir and cedar trees; and even better, a community that feels like family. 

   Wildlife viewing is abundant at Lake Almanor West, where bald eagles and osprey soar above you and at times you may even have to wait for the deer to move along so you can continue your game. 

      Pro Shop Manager Brandie Deruiter keeps the Pro Shop well-stocked with golf equipment, supplies and apparel for men and women. Come see the new arrivals she has brought in for the season. Brandie always enjoys seeing golfers come back with their families; often times just  to hit a bucket of balls or for others, to teach the sport to their family. Lessons can also be arranged at Lake Almanor West. 

   As far as the course goes, DeRuiter said, “Golfers love the challenge and playability of the course.” Lake Almanor West’s efficient irrigation system also gives them great control over managing their beautiful greens while also conserving water. Everyone is looking forward to a great season. Make your way out to the west shore for a great day at Lake Almanor West.

Unity Grill Opens At The Golf CourseFull Breakfast, BBQ & More

   Chef A.J. Weiner is excited to bring Unity Grill to the golf course, the west shore, and to residents and visitors in the area. One of his specialties is packing up a meal to go for your excursion on the lake or to take home for your own barbecue feast. Cooking is nothing new for this family. 

   A.J.’s  grandparents, Judy and Frank Helow opened the first Billiards hall in Chico, The Corner Pocket, with a café that reflected their Lebanese descent. After growing up in the family café, A.J.’s mom Sandra Helow went on to create Something’s Cooking Catering in Morro Bay. 

   A.J. is opening the Grill with fiancé Jennifer Gonzalez, who also has lifelong experience in restaurants and has opened bakeries. He told me they were Junior High sweethearts who have crossed paths many times in their lives. This time he plans to marry her.  A.J.’s barbecue talents are proven with hundreds returning often to his  outdoor kitchen for ribs, tri tip, chicken and a variety of delicious homemade sides. 

   The flavor and tenderness of the meats he prepares are excellent, untilizing his own rub recipes and a great barbecue sauce he offers on the side. Homemade coleslaw, pasta salad and beans were great but he reminded us “this is just a sample of what we do.”

   The menu is wider on the west shore, starting off with scrumptious full American breakfast along with hearty breakfast burritos, burgers and sandwiches for golfers on the run. “I can cook anything,” A.J. said, and his menu shows off many of his talents. He will offer dinners featuring appetizers of Hummus, Tabuli, and hot pita to reflect his 5th generation Lebanese roots. Texas barbecue, smoked meats, Spaghetti and Lasagna are among the fare along with Lamb, Chicken, or Beef Kabobs. Specials are also planned. Everything is freshly prepared from quality ingredients.

   The Grill serves breakfast and lunch. Memorial Day weekend they will begin serving dinner. A.J.’s passion is bringing people together over good food. They look forward to seeing you soon. 


 There will be new changes to the Almanor West Grill for the 2019 season!
