This is a great course for the price, a little bit off main thoroughfare but well worth the drive.

It is always a wonderful experience to play at Arrowhead Pointe. The facility, pro shop, staff, course, amenities, is always exceptional. The only reason I don't play this course more I live 90 miles away.
Once on the course I alway feel like I'm at a private resort and not a State Park course, the back nine are absolutely beautiful. This is a must play course for the price.

A stunning place!

This place is absolutely beautiful. The staff was friendly and the course was absolutely beautiful. Course is in great condition and well maintained. The scenery around the course was spectacular and easy to get distracted. Prior to my visit I read a review that said “…..the best course outside of Atlanta.” And I can see why!

First time here in a couple years. Very nice

Back nine around Lake Russell has some amazing views. Course in pretty good shape and greens are as well. If you have never played here it is definitely worth giving this course a try. A friend of mine will tell you it’s his favorite course. Pro shop staff is very friendly. It’s worth the 80 mile one way trip every now and then.

Nice little get away

Very relaxing course no cars no houses nothing but pure golf . There are about 5-6 holes that are pretty special running along the lake , plenty of scenic views

The Back 9 Makes this course special so make sure to take that into account and bring some extra balls

Staff were very friendly and accommodating

Course condition was great for a Municiple course but not as well prepped as a country club or expensive course but for $30 I wouldn’t expect more, a few instances of grass clippings crab grass in places ect

Greens were recently aerated and very slow still had a little sand on them

Over all a great little get away under 2 hours from Atl we made the trip out enjoyed the course had dinner and made the trip back same day .

Nice experience but not the kind of thing I’d do often

Beautiful day

Great day for golf. It was a little slow as far as pace of play. Fairways may have been a touch long and affected roll out on drives. I played awful but enjoyed the course

Course fabulous but understaffed

Most staff including head pro left late spring/early summer and have had trouble replacing and keeping staff. Many times only 1-2 people in the pro shop and have trouble staffing the cafe. The lone remaining employee, Christy does a great job but way understaffed. New hires come and go and don’t know the systems or pricing. Course maintenance becoming an issue due to staffing problems as well.

Beautiful course in excellent shape in the end of August.

Absolutely gorgeous course. Greens were immaculate. Beautiful lake views from many holes. Fairway and greens grass was very high. Maybe trying to beat the August heat? Would love to play again.
