Extremely Fun Course

The restrooms and pro shop were clean and updated. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Course is challenging enough but still very fun to play. Gorgeous views throughout the course. Greens were in great shape. I'll be returning to the area next year and this course was instantly added to my to-do list once I return.

Best staff in the golf world!

I just wanted to post this because it's rare that employees stand out so much as they do at this course. The staff at Butternut is second to none. I can't tell you how many times I've called in for a last minute tee time and they made it work for me. These guys in the shop are always so nice and just super genuine when they talk to you. They just want to make sure you have an awesome experience on their course and you can tell they care from the second you start talking to them. The course is looking great as well and depending on the time of day you play you can get through a round pretty quickly. If you are in Blue Ridge/Blairsville area I'd highly recommend you play here. You wont regret it.

nice piece of property

Really nice piece of property. Holes go down and up steep hills, and in a valley too. I don't recall an entirely flat hole. No houses around. Several ponds and streams add to the challenge. Course was in pretty good shape, esp for a muni. Greens were a tad slow, and several back tees were not in use. I enjoyed the course, and would recommend.

Appalling pace of play

Had played this course previously and I gave it a great review. This latest visit has made us say 'never again'. As we arrived at the tee, we saw a 5 ball of ladies in front of us. They were looking for balls in the water and were oblivious to us and others arriving on the tee. I don't believe they could have played slower. 2 hours 40 minutes for the first 9. My wife rang the Pro Shop on the 2nd hole and asked whether they condoned 5 ball groups. The guy (Dan?) just grunted and put the phone down. (Thought - was his wife in the group?). The second nine took us an hour and 20 minutes. The guys behind us - we saw a lot of them as they were always waiting like us - said they were members and it was normal. As we left the parking lot we saw a sign at the entrance noting that the first rule of the club is that '5 balls are not allowed at any time'. It probably should say 'except for members or ladies'. What a joke. And with a totally unhelpful pro shop, this place should be avoided at all costs. So 'never again'.

This is a beautiful golf course that is well maintained. The front side was closed due to new cart paths so played back twice. Pace of play was slow due to this.

Gem of North Georgia

I hate to let the secret out. Best municipal course I may have ever played. Bring all 13 clubs. Not long, but even the shorter holes are challenging. #18 - bring your A game.
I haven’t even talked about how gorgeous the course is.

Greens are being aerated - fall golf will be spectacular

Good course

We like this course. I can only blame my bad score on myself. Staff is very friendly. I lost my cell phone today and about 10 minutes after I got home the course called me to say someone had found it and turned it into the desk. Whoever you are, I cannot thank you enough! It was a beautiful day and my husband and I were just so happy to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather. Will definitely be playing it again.
