Unlike many other courses in the state, Scenic Hills Country Club sprawls across a scenic landscape of rolling hills. In addition to the dramatic elevation changes throughout the course, the holes are sharply framed by towering pines that line the fairways. The holes play to generous putting surfaces that provide a variety of hole placements, but its best to play to the middle of the greens since there are strategically placed bunkers guarding all of the greens. Water hazards also come into play on six holes, but they require only minimal forced carries. Scenic Hills C.C. opens with what is arguably its most challenging holes. The par-4 hole plays downhill to a green that is not only protected on both the left and right with bunkers, but there is also a steep-faced bunker that is not visible from the fairway.

Great for the $$

Got a last minute deal and was well worth the money.. course was rough from lack of rain but kept up..my only complaint was a large tournament that we were placed in the middle of.. made it quite slow but the people were great! We will be back!

Thanks

Thank you for the Tee-IT-Forward for this 74 year old high handicapper. I improved my score by 10 strokes. Now the fairways could use a little help.

Not played them all but Scenic Hills is in better shape than any of the lower priced courses around.

I am not going to name them but Scenic Hills is in the best condition of any of the courses that cost less than $40 tp play. In addition they have an active program of repairing tee boxes.

Best golf for $39

12 handicap here.. shot a surprising 83 today. This course is fun and in great shape for $40. Most surprisingly, the greens were pretty dang good. They didn’t look beautiful, but they rolled really smooth (which is what actually matters). The people were also great. Pro shop guy was nice, the members that I ran in to were also nice. So definitely a good atmosphere.

For some additional perspective, I traditionally play in Destin and Navarre where golf can be grossly overpriced and overrated. So this was a very refreshing experience. Would highly recommend.

A nice course with wonderful people

We arrived early for our tee time and enjoyed a nice lunch while waiting. The course was sort of in Winter conditions, but I imagine it will be wonderful in a month or so.
