Worth The Drive

Exceptional course with conditions that the majority of private courses could only hope to rival. Worth every bit of the 1 plus hour drive from my north florida home. I could only hope that north florida had a course like this. Thank You for a great day of golf.

Most play

Weather was outstanding. Fairways/Greens in great shape. Cart-paths could use some repairs. I’ve been playing this course about 6 times a year. Worth over an hour drive from Jacksonville, Fl

Great Georgia Park Golf Course

My wife and I both enjoy the course. The greens are great and consistent since being upgraded a couple of years ago. The tee block locations ensure that the course is fair for both men and ladies.

Great place to play

Staff is always very friendly. Busiest times are usually from 8-12. The course is always in good condition. Greens are usually pretty fast. I golf here very regular and will continue to play here.

Peaceful. Fun. Challenging enough!

Tee time 10:20. 2-some. Arrived 15 minute before tee time. Was told our time tee time was moved to 10:25. We watched a 4- some tee off at 10:20. We could have kept our time; 4-some tee off after us. 10:36 we still couldn't tee off.
Asked 4-some to let us go through. They areed.
We enjoyed playing 17 holes.

Moving us behind the 4-ome was unacceptable!

Great Escape

This course is off the beaten path and that's great. No noise as it's out in the middle of a state park. Turf conditions here are excellent. The new Tiff Eagle greens have been filling out for some time and they are fantastic. Firm and fast. Fairways and tee boxes are beautiful as well. Plus beautiful scenery. Caught it on a hot deal and I will be back for sure.
