The one that brings you back!

A little cool this am but the sun was shinning with a little wind. The course was fertilized and aerated last week so the greens were a little slow but they will be great in another week. The staff are really friendly and helpful for example a mower pointed out my ball that had bounced down the cart path. The price is very fair and I am thinking seriously about joining the membership. You will not be disappointed. This course has improved so much it will be the best course in the area but let's keep it hush hush!

Golfnow website incomplete description

I have played the course a couple of times the website said airification with no explanation of date it was completed but I was willing to play, but only 9 holes were open that you played twice. Call before you pay. I ended up not playing and losing the money I paid. Lesson learned

5 stars

Some golfers are great drivers , some have great short games or they are great at putting. Most golfers don’t don’t do everything great all the time. Golf courses are the same way. Rarely do you find a course that has everything going for it . Old Union is one of those courses. It has reasonably wide fairways with no blind shots, large greens that are fast enough but are reasonably level and roll true. Even the sand is nice. The course also has a great practice area. I will play this course every chance I get.

Wonderful Valley Course

This is my second time playing the course on vacation. This is one of the few valley courses in North Georgia and is a hidden gem of a course. The greens were absolutely perfect; the best I’ve ever played at a public course (and it’s only April). I wish this course was near where I lived in Atlanta - I would become a member in a heart beat! The course, staff, conditions, practice facilities, and pace of play is absolutely unbelievable for the price! Keep up the great work. See you soon!

Enjoyable

I enjoy playing this course. Always have a good time. There are blind shots on this course, but frequency in playing here would help with that. I would recommend this course to other golfers.

Poor shape for the money

Course was very soggy. Lots of maintenance going on that made it more soggy in the fairways. Not worth the money. I’ve played it several times before and was in good shape after new management took over. Hopefully will be better during the summer.

Pleasantly Surprised

Played on a Saturday morning after a 90 minute frost delay.
Is a valley course, in contrast to the other courses in the area that are mountainous with a lot of elevation changes, this course does not have that. However, it more than makes up for it with beautifully laid out holes and challenging tee shots. Greens are fantastic and putt true (and fast).
I was not expecting much when I booked this since it was my only option after being unable to get a tee time at Old Toccoa Farm (my favorite overall course in the US). I was MORE than happy with this course and will definitely play again if I'm in the area.

Pleasantly surprised

For starters the gentlemen in the clubhouse were awesome! Very friendly and accommodating as my friend and I brought our 2 sons, 9 and 11 years old. From the first tee to the last green the golf course impressed me! The greens were firm and fast!!!
Great experience and will return!

Nice Course

Played early after a heavy fog. Greens are very firm and fast. Fairways are rated 5/10. Patchy, very spongy around some greens. Well worth playing and very challenging depending which tees you select to play. I played the blue at 6300 or so yards.
