A round of golf at the Fernbank Golf Course kicks off on a par-4 hole that measures 255 yards. The next hole is a breezily short par-3 hole that plays to just 91 yards. The long hole is the ninth, a par 4 that comes in at 419 yards.

I booked a Hot Deal on Friday night for a late morning tee time on Saturday. Upon arriving, the woman informed me that the course was closed and that there was an outing. I told her that I booked through GolfNow and showed her my confirmation email/receipt. She said they didn't take tee times that way and that she was told to keep the course closed. I finally got her to call the clubhouse manager, and he let us play, although told us to call next time we wanted to play, which wasn't the friendliest way to send us off. Additionally, the course was unplayable due to the nature of the outing. It was honestly some of the worst golfing I've ever experienced. I'm not sure to trust GolfNow going forward or if this was an anomaly from the course's end. It was awful either way.
Great Walking Course
Nice smaller course- very flat and short-great for walking. A lot of criss cross fairways. Greens were nice, but longer grass. Great price and would definitely play again. Thanks
Decent Short Course
This course is a great way to improve your short and mid-range game. There are four par-4 holes and five par-3's.
Don't use golf now for this place.
It is cheaper to just go there and pay than when you use the app. They do not do tee times so I don't understand why they are even on the app. Other than that it is a nice SMALL course.
I will not be going back
Good course for beginners who do not have a fine taste when it comes to golf courses. However, I play about 3-4 times a week and this has been my worst experience golfing so far this year. The greens are MISERABLY slow which makes it nearly impossible to sink a putt over 12 feet. I couldn’t tell the difference between the tee box and the rough, half the course is mud with no grass. The layout of the course is probably the worst layout I have ever seen, there are 4 holes that share 2 tee boxes, and hole 7 and 9 intersect each other and make an ‘X’ causing 2 groups to be playing basically the same hole at the same time. Once I got to hole 5 I didn’t even wanna keep playing and I ended up not even finishing the 9th hole because it is hard to have a good time while playing this course.
The course was well kept! Fun to play and was not a bad walk. I was not allowed to rent a walking cart after 5 but that did not hurt. The price of beverages was also very reasonable. I spent $3 on a beer and water. It was also a great deal to play. I will definitely be going back!
A Unique Challenge...Hidden Gem.
If you want immaculate conditions....a perfectly manicured course...and 4 star amenities...move on. You're not going to like this place. If you want a laid back, fun, challenging and unique experience, that attracts friendly, down to earth people, then this is the spot. The course is a par 31. The holes that stand-out to me are #5 (212 yards) & #6 (198 yards), 2 extremely challenging par 3's. My strategy on #5 & #6 is to be extremely conservative, take a couple Bogey 4's, and hope to get those back with on #1, a 255 yard par 4 & #8, a 268 yard par 4. #2 is a fun little 98 yard par 3 with a slightly elevated tee. You hit over a gully that you cross via a wooden bridge. People generally like this hole, but it's been giving me fits this year! #3 is a 168 yard par 3 with a blind tee shot to a green that slopes back to front, and that lays hidden just behind a large Native American Burial Mound. On top of said mound is the "Bush From H€ll" that swallows up any ball that touches it. It's a tough but fair hole. The green holds well, but anything short or long, will make for an extremely tough up and down. #7 & 9 are the longest holes on the course. #7 plays at 377 yards and #9 is right at 400 yards. Both require a well placed tee shot, with out of bounds on the right and several strategically placed trees . I really like these 2 holes because there are several ways to play them, depending on risk/reward and the strong and weak parts of your game. #9 requires distance control, as it sits tucked into the south east corner of the course, between out of bounds to the right and trees to the left.
All and all I love this course. It's great for Beginners, yet offers a good challenge for even the best Players. It's a unique experience and they've great cheeseburgers and cold beer.
