Being from Florida it was a challenge! Great elevations and beautiful back drops from every tee box. Fairway grass had already died off and made it a little challenging to find any color ball but was still an awesome experience. Would like to try again in early to late spring.

Short course but not an easy course

Greens were in great condition. One of the better courses in far North Georgia. Fairly short but a lot of up and down with blind shots.

Is this Heaven, No but it’s close.

Got a deal for 18 with a cart for $25 teed off at 10:00 on a Sunday.was Not crowded,Cart path only.
was a little difficult and taxing on the legs. But what a piece of property. Just a carpet of great grass everywhere. Green’s just perfect. Shoutout to the landscaping crew top notch work.

Nice Experience

This course is definitely a challenge but very playable by all levels of golfers. I found no issues with the holes that 1 played, 1 through 9. Holes 10 through 18 were being maintained at the time of my round. The golf carts included coolers, ball and club head cleaners. I was greeted in the pro shop by a friendly and accommodating gentleman. My first 9 holes I was able to play very quickly but my second nine holes found me behind several very slow moving groups. So I cut short my round. However that did not detract from a very nice golfing experience at a very nice course. I would definitely play this course again and recommend it.
