One of the best destination RV-Golf resorts in the country can be found in Likely, California. The 520-acre Likely Place RV & Golf Resort is located about two-and-a-half hours north of Reno and an hour south of Klamath Falls, Oregon on Highway 395. “Likely Links” golf course provides many wonderful views of the Warner Mountains and the high desert foothills and plateaus.
The course was designed and constructed beginning in 1995, and completed in 2007. The par 72, 18-hole course measures 6,900 yards and carries a Northern California Golf Association slope rating of 121. In addition to a nice driving range and practice putting green, the clubhouse has a small pro shop and diner that serves breakfast and lunch daily. Dinners and other events are catered. The golf course was developed because of its popularity and continued growth among those who enjoy the RV lifestyle. Local golfers from the surrounding community also enjoy experiencing Likely Links.
Located in Modoc County, Likely Place RV-Golf Resort offers 50 RV spaces and all the amenities of home, including clean restrooms, Laundromat, fire pit, public phone, Wi-Fi, two gazebos with partially enclosed barbeque, horse shoes, and RV storage.
The Likely Resort web site reports that Modoc County is one of California’s last frontiers offering an abundance of history, wildlife, fishing, and beautiful high desert and alpine scenery. The area is the true Old West with soaring mountains, clear lakes, and bubbling springs that all filter down to a wide valley of the Pit River. Located in a rustic cattle ranching community, Likely Place was developed as a way to diversify the family’s business from ranching into recreation.
The scenic resort features many ponds, trees, and wildlife. It is not uncommon to see ducks, Canada geese, mule deer, quail, and lots of other wildlife right on the resort.
Also available at Likely Place RV & Golf Resort are the new Fairway Villa rentals, located near the clubhouse. The villas rent for $125 a night. For more details about Likely Place, visit the company web site at http://www.likelyplace.com/.
