In the early 1950s, a group of Roseville's leading citizens decided that building a full service country club on 180 acres just northwest of what was then sleepy little Roseville would be a great way of showcasing the city. The chosen parcel of land was perfect - rolling hills studded with mature live oak and valley oak.
At that time you could view the Sierra range from many locations on the property. Hence the name, Sierra View Country Club. The founding fathers saw to it that many more trees, mostly native to Northern California, were planted between the fairways. Those little saplings grew into mighty oaks and now the Sierra range is visible on a few select spots on the course. We keep the name because the name has come to represent a very beautiful, very special place.
Roseville has expanded rapidly since then, spreading north and west of the Sierra View property by many miles. Sierra View Country Club remains tucked away in what we now call "historic Old Roseville."

. The Clubhouse was completed at that time, followed by the addition of the tennis courts
