This is a real golf course

Never played here? Play. Ever wonder why there are so many PGA Tour players from UGA? Play here and you'll understand.

To play this course exceptionally well requires you to work the ball both ways. However, if you are smart, on the holes where the bend doesn't fit your natural ball flight, you'll not let the total distance of the hole frighten you, and you'll stick with your "go to" tee shot, which might mean you club down. What? You thought I said you have to work the ball both ways. Right. But, most really good players favor a fade or draw, and if you are on a tee that demands a shot shape that is not "go to" you will club down, accept a longer club to the green, and rely on a tight short game. This is that golf course. Demanding at every turn.

Every par4/5 has a runway strip of fairway. Hitting that strip is imperative. If not, you're in medium length bermuda rough and no bargain. Very few holes are straight away and in short, I'd say this is one of the most challenging [public] courses you can play in the state. I've played most of the best public and private courses in Georgia and this is one of the absolute best pure "golf" experiences, where you'll use every club and every shot. Seriously, this is on par with the Highlands course at Atlanta Athletic Club, except that the greens at AAC are sick, and the greens here are not.

I'm very good and I will only play here every so often, because it really exposes any weakness, and it is somewhat infuriating. Especially when you miss fairway after fairway. Here's what I say to myself before I get to the first tee. "Today I have to understand that I will likely hit only 6 or 7 fairways. Hitting a fairway is a perfect lie and a treat. Take advantage of the opportunity when you're in the fairway. Missing a fairway is why I play the game. I'm going to need to pitch and chip the ball well to keep my score going." If I don't say this, I'm playing with false expectations and will always be disappointed in myself. If I do, I know what to expect, which is to rely on my short game. If you expect to be pitching and chipping the ball, you'll look forward to the chances. If you don't, you'll be cursing yourself constantly.

The one bummer is that the regulars that play here do NOT repair their ball marks and despite the staff's desire to have perfect greens, many local yocals ruine what could literally be a perfect tour quality golf course to all that play here.

Solid

Solid layout, not over-penalizing, not too easy, just right in the middle. They need to have a drink cart and allow beer, and have a real cafe.

Thank you for your great review and your suggestions. The move from a staffed cafe to a campus market express was a difficult decision, but it was determined to be the best move based on past financial performance and the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic. Our goal is to build a broad inventory of high quality items in the market to serve our customers even better than we did before. We continue to monitor the situation and if a change is warranted, we will respond accordingly to best meet the needs of our customers. Thank you again!

Great track, poor info from GolfNow

Course is amazing. Layout can be as tough as you want to handle. Only issue was the greens were freshly aerated. It’s no fault of the course, it’s that time of year. I wish GolfNow would have given an aerification alert and I would have waited a few weeks for them to heal.

I'm sorry that you weren't made aware of our recent green aeration back in February. I understand how annoying that is. Thanks to that aeration, the greens are now in fantastic shape. I hope you will come back and give us another try!

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!
