Awesome course

Awesome course great staff. Thins is one of my favorite course. It’s fun open fairways but has some very cool par 3. The greens were rolling good for winter golf. Great job Seth and staff.

Great condition for the Winter

Played on 12/27/22. They had covered all the greens to protect from freezing sub 30 degree weather. The day we played was first day back open and greens played amazing. New club house was super super nice. Best value anywhere. Highly recommend. Play while you can before prices go up or goes private.

Best bang for buck

This course is outstanding. Best bang for your buck out there especially with so many terrible courses charging close to $100. This course is in great shape, fast greens, and all at a low price. Highly recommend.

Ruined by Housing

All the housing on the "now" back 9 and the elimination of the trees and other natural growth has destroyed the charm of this once beautiful Northeast Georgia foothill course.

Slow play but awesome course!!

We got behind a group of 6 tee times so we couldn’t go around them as all were backed up. Only played 9 holes as the wait became 10 mins per hole.

The massive construction of homes definitely takes away from the beauty and playability of the course; it was a very windy day when I played, and the clear-cutting of forested areas made several holes nearly unplayable.
The greens were smooth and slick and the fairways and bunkers were in great condition.

Great Course

Course was in great shape. Fairways solid. Greens rolled true. Friendly staff. Course layout is fun and challenging but not too difficult for an average golfer. Will definitely be back.

Changes Coming I am told

Lots of work being done on course.or around course. Clearing out, construction, noise on some holes. Getting close to finishing new Clubhouse and have been told nines will be reversed soon that should be a good change .to this course. Not a difficult course but in good shape considering constuction.

Great place

Have played this course for years. With the home building going on around the course it’s only gotten better. Played the hot deal which is a steal for the condition of the course.
