Nice course just wet and soggy

So booked this course ahead of time but unfortunately it rained the days ahead of play which made the course very wet and soggy.

With that said the layout was good and challenging! I will return when it is not wet to give a better evaluation. It is a long course. Lastly, the staff was friendly and professional!

Looking forward to next time!

Thank you for your review! We've been in a rainy winter pattern lately and does keep things soggy. I think you will be surprised how much different the course plays when it is dry and fast. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

UGA worth the trip from Atlanta

We don’t get to play there as much as we would like due to distance from where we live. But what an outstanding golf course. It’s a country club experience available to us all. And certainly a treat to the students that play. They have very strict protocols in place to protect their employees and players. Staff friendly and helpful. Thx for the experience. My sons and I will be back. Go Dawgs

Hot Deal Steal

This is the best Hot Deal in Georgia. 11:30 18-hole tee time for 2 @ $55?!? I'll be back every Thursday. This course is definitely challenging with rolling fairways and undulations on most greens, but it is fair. You are rewarded for playing smart. Tee box setup also allows players of all levels to enjoy the course. Finished the round in 3:50 with a quick stop at the snack shack and some admittedly bad holes that took us awhile. Paired with two locals who said the course wasn't in great shape but compared to the overplayed courses in the Atlanta area, this course was great. Would go back any day. Driving range facility was top notch and bring your own cooler rule is definitely a unique touch. Well done UGA, we will be back.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you weren't given advance notice of our green aeration. I'm writing this comment the day after Thanksgiving and the greens are fantastic again, so please do come back for another round!

Fast greens

Fun layout. Not overly punishing if you miss a shot. Greens are sloped, extremely fast, but fun. Expect some 3 putts.

Thank you for your review! Yes, the green complexes are the main defense of the golf course when it comes to difficulty. The key to them is trying to stay below the hole, even if that means being just off a green.. Sometimes it is much easier to get it up and down from off the green versus trying to two putt from on it! Thanks again!

A Well Maintain Golf Course

My wife and I loved the wide fairways on the 1st 9 and the changing topography & elevational challenge on 2nd 9. The green is rolled well and the fairways are well trimmed
Overall, this is an excellent course.

Nice course

Felt a little rushed other than that nice course would consider walking next time as the course was cart path only and not much help would’ve been easier to walk also the cart keeps track of your time on each hole

Thanks for playing with us and for your comments. I'm sorry you felt rushed. Our 18-hole pace of play is 4 hours and 12 minutes and we do our best to keep groups moving at that pace. I'm sure it being cart path only contributed to your feelings of being rushed. We had gotten over 2 inches of rain the previous three days before you played. Our course is a fantastic walking venue and we hope you come back soon to give it another try. Thanks!

Great course

Very nice & challenging golf course to play. Course is in great shape. The greens were just aerated & need a little more healing. They should be back in a few more weeks. Other than that it was fantastic.

Great track

The UGA course is impeccable.

All 18 holes are challenging, yet not too unfair, and memorable. Thoroughly enjoyed this from 1st tee to 18th green. The few holes just after the turn are superb and feel like Augusta!

My only qualm with this course would be the club house facilities are not what you’d expect of such a great course. Could do with some modernisation and better catering facilities.
