Used cart

Never had so many shots roll backwards

Early season golf is not indicative
We had a lot of rain last week and it was cart path only which is always a slog but necessary.
Solid layout and a lot of elevation changes on the back nine.. Playing uphill holes is never fun
Best holes are 8 - brutal 11th and 13th..
Course has many extreme edges as its defense
An example on uphill 14th.. drive rolled back 40 yards after landing on fairway and blind 3rd rolled back 30 yards off false front of the green twice.. so had 100 yards of backward yardage on one hole
Landed on right edge of 18th green and not only spun off the green but down the hill 30 yards into the hazard.
Guess when the rough grows will not happen but still says do not be short now

Nice practice range but first timers behind us as well thought it was too hard.. Many forced carries for the ladies

Beautiful course and layout with amazing views

Visiting family from out of state, and this is the best course I’ve played in Georgia so far. Beautiful track with amazing views provided by the drastic elevation changes. Perfect routing that includes a great variety of holes. Course conditions were good considering the amount of rain they had leading up to the day I played. Greens were pure but not very fast because they probably didn’t get a chance to cut them with all the rain. I hope I’m able to come back and play here again during prime season.

Greenskeeper deserves a raise

For mid-December this course is in mint condition. Greens roll as pure as they did in the summer, maybe even better with less traffic.

Very challenging for Senior golfers

The front nine is challenging, but usually fair. The back nine is incredibly difficult due to the major terrain changes on every hole. Many blind shots to greens that are - in several cases - long, uphill slogs. There are no hole layouts available for viewing on the course and not on the carts either. We played mid-November and the course was in decent shape...greens were very fast; fairways were great; rough was too deep for reasonable recovery efforts, particularly when our golf shots ended up on the many steep sidehill lies encountered on every hole. In short, it is a very difficult course for good golfers who know their way around the course, but it is nearly impossible for first-time or occasional players with 15 handicaps. The layout works well with the terrain, and it is, all-in-all, a beautiful golf course, but too much of a challenge for good, Senior golfers.

Be aware if you are female.

I played with my wife. I enjoyed the course very much. Course condition was great and the green was fast. My wife did not enjoy not b/c of the course difficulty, but because of unacceptable bathroom facility. There were two bathrooms on the course, both were Porta Potty in disgusting condition surrounded by partial shades and spider webs. Totally unacceptable.

Nice Track!

This is a very nice course all the way around. Challenging, but fair. I usually play on the weekends but was able to play during the week and the pace of play was a little slower than usual.
