Great shape

Course in excellent shape. Greens fastest in Georgia. Layout just not memorable. Just not worth $85. Good place to go once an a while.

Beautiful layout

Great layout, felt like a PGA tour layout, risk/reward, thoughtful, just fun to play. Par 3 hole 14 (I think) is absolutely gem of a hole, 200 yards downhill, water to the right, just beautiful.
Greens were super super fast and hard.
I was the first one out so pace of play was exceptional. Staff was very friendly. I just wish it was not so far away.
It can be expensive.

The GREENS, The GREENS, The GREENS!!!!

Nothing bad to say. Beautiful property, Great staff, Excellent practice/ warm up facilities. The price you pay to play Barnsley resort is on the higher end of public play , But if you like getting the bang for you buck this is how you do it. The condition was at professional/ Private club quality when I played. Lots of rain prior to my round and course still relatively dry. The greens are as advertised. GOOD LUCK!!!! Practically perfect!!! And they are LIGHTNING!!!!

Best Conditioned Public Course in GA

Great healthy turf. Fast and FIRM greens posed quite the challenge. This course is challenging off the tee as well. Not long, but strategic. Architecturally speaking the layout is not great, as there is a disproportionate amount of blind shots. Other than 1, 2, and the par 3’s, I dont think you can see the greens on your approaches hardly ever. Hard to tell whether pin is up or back usually.

Still, the course is so nice in conditioning and scenery.

The food in the grill is DELICIOUS!!

Aerated greens in July?

A great course. I will be back.

It would have been nice to know the greens were punched recently and have barely started growing back.

Pretty darn good public golf course

We would have rated it higher, but the greens were just sanded. Probably be awesome in 4-5 weeks.
