Great Staff!

The course is in great condition and a pleasure to play despite it not being very long. THE STAFF is incredible. From the gentleman at the carts, to the pro sho and to the first tee, everyone is over the top friendly and makes you feel welcome. Honestly the best experience I've ever had at a course from this standpoint, and I've played a lot of courses. Great job Candler Hills.

Excellent

First times I w played the course. I usually play the muni course in Gainesville so this was a treat. The lush fairways and greens were a highlight. I need to practice on fast greens like these to get good. Alas, I can’t afford to do so. It’s worth the trip for an occasional golf treat.

Well manicured, challenging, pricey

I was happy with the conditions, pace of play and amenities of the course. I'm a working-class guy who usually plays on munis. So this was a treat to spend this much to play. The most difficult thing to adjust to is the ultra-fast greens, If you have a similar playing profile, arrive early and spend more time on the practice green. Staff was friendly. The wide, lush fairways were also a treat, as my course is not lush and it's tight. This place is wide open, so it's difficult to lose a ball. No water hazards but plenty of traps.

Definitely a "Feel Good" experience.

Had some drivable par 4's and par 5's reachable in 2 that made for a very forgiving course. The greens were immaculate and very true which made putting very satisfying even with some tricky elevation changes.
You don't have to be a long ball hitter and as long as you keep it on the extra wide fairways, you are sure to feel great about your game during and after your round!
