Great value for a nice little country course. Be prepared to take your time.

Good course

At last, a course with a starter to get everyone off on time and achieve a less than 4 hour round. A couple of short waits, especially on #18 but overall a good pace of play. Excellent! Interesting layout, not too difficult. Paired up with 2 good guys.

Winter golf

For winter golf this course is in great condition. The greens were fast and rolled really nice. Still enough grass on the fairways to get the club under the ball.

Over all Great course

Had a great round of golf!! Me and a long time friend of mine played 18 and absolutely loved it. Wasn't crazy about the price for a round ( I've played nicer courses for less money), I enjoyed every hole and didn't feel rushed. Challenging greens though because they are FAST.
Would be really nice if they had some kind of restaurant/grill though, we like to break and eat between front and back 9's but thats not going to stop us from going back.

Great Course but no marshall's

This is the third and final round we will play at Apple Mountain because of the pace of play. We have been playing apple mountain for over 15 years. There are no Marshall's on the course to speed up play. Even during the week there were three (3) groups backed up on 50 % of the holes; because there was a fourth group trying to get to the green. It is inexcusable for a Holiday Inn Vacation resort course to have this management of the patrons. If there was a Marshall or someone from the pro shop driving around and maintaining the pace of play; then it would be enjoyable for everyone. If you cannot play golf go to the driving range and learn how to; before you go on the course,

Hello. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and to best control pace allowing everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing.

Course is in excellent condition. Only comment is with the current epidemic would expect carts to be clean and pro shop to have a hand sanitizer. Great place to play.

Even in the rain

I get to play few courses that are as well kept and fun to play as Apple Mountain. We played today, even in the rain, and enjoyed every hole. Living in Middle TN I make it a point to get a round of golf in every time I get this way.

Loved Apple Mountain

Three old guys drove from SC over to Apple Mountain in Clarksville, GA today. The course was in great shape and we were able to zip around the course at a great pace. The course is very forgiving. No water and wide fairways. We always enjoy playing here. We drove 50 miles one way to play and we will be doing it again.

fun time

It was my first time playing this course as well as two other members of our foursome. I had a hard time adjusting to the fairways because I felt like I needed to hit it harder to compensate for the uphill lies. Poor judgement on my behalf. The weather was fantastic and the course was in excellent shape. We enjoyed the course overall. I would recommend it to anyone.
