Good Course

The course was in good condition. The greens were perfect. Played here a few times and seems like they have fixed issues they had in the past. Greens and fairways were top notch. For the amount of rain the course got the night before, while being wet, there was very little standing water anywhere!

My favorite track

I’ve been playing here 10 years and it’s my favorite course around. They grew out the rough a little, which makes it a good challenge. Greens are in good shape. I like the improvements around the green on #4. Pace of play was great until we hit a wall on #7. Still finished with a twosome in 4:15 but not the usual fast pace of play.

Governors

Played Governors for the first time in a while!I have always liked this course. They were friendlier than ever. It’s coming around and they are not far from being totally private. Better play while you can. Better yet, join while you can!

Very good shape!

This is the 4th or 5th time I’ve played this course in the last 8-10 years. By far the best shape I’ve ever played it! Fairways super nice. Greens, for bent and as hot … amazing. Well done agronomy staff!

What a course!

This place is a hidden gem. From the moment you turn into the club until you leave, you are treated just like a member. The course is absolutely amazing. The greens were perfect; the fairways off-the-chains, and the bunkers were maintained well. Yes, the tee boxes were a little sandy but they will be great in no time as they are maintaining them. This place could host a tour event --- it's that nice! Oh, and the range, wow. Come early and see one fine practice facility. Can't wait to play it again. Bring your camera!

Diamond in the rough

This course is tucked neatly and discreetly in Acworth GA. With rolling fairways, white snow bunkers and fast rolling greens. Its its own oasis with Million Dollar homes lining the fairways to encourage better shot accuracy. The staff is unparalleled with smiles and ease of play. Quite and relaxing but how this course plays you'll have enough excitement placing your ball in the correct positions.

Governors Towne Club

Just an excellent course design. Visually - so many interesting holes. Hilly terrain in the southern Appalachian foothills.. Somewhat isolated but the homes in the club are $1,000,000+.

Depending on your tee choice and set up, it can be very challenging or somewhat hacker friendly. Many holes have room to bomb it. Not a walker's course - too much elevation change and distance between holes.

The negative is the the ownership/management does not have a client-focused mentality. The grill/bar was closed all day when we played (a Sunday), so no cool down beer break at the end. That was weird, but not a surprise here.

Looking rough

Course conditions are rough at this time especially given the $$$$ they are asking to play. They have a serious Geese ( and geese poo) problem. It will be A bit before I go back hopefully condition of the course will improve since it is a nice layout

Pro course

I live 3 miles from Governor town club and I cannot believe that I’ve never played this course before. Everything from the tee boxes to the fairways to the greens were absolutely perfect. Staff and hospitality are second to none.
