Excellent, storable greens

The course is in excellent condition. Best aspect of the course are its greens. Beautiful, clean, pure, fairly quick greens. They roll like a billiard table.

Always A Great Experience

Course has picturesque views from most all tees, fairways or greens with excellent putting greens. Course offers a Challenging layout from all tee boxes. Very good reasonably priced food is in the onsite grill. It is my favorite course to play and I drive 35 minutes one way to get there.

Great Course with Some Difficulty

Looked around my area for a course I had not played before and saw the reviews for this course. I was surprised how well maintained and upkept the course was. Greens looked like they might be slow but were pretty quick. The greens were a little hard but made the course a bit more difficult as the tee shots weren't too demanding and there are areas you can miss and be fine. As a scratch golfer I played from the black tees and really enjoyed the round. I would recommend going out and playing this course. I'm sure I'll go back and play again in the future.

Course had “army worms” or the worms that eat root systems. However the grounds crew was doing everything possible to kill the pests. Outside of that couldn’t ask for more. Greens still pure as ever. Little slower than usual on pace for their greens but still nice.

Side window

I’m not sure I quite understand the “side window”……. When we checked in, the guy did not even offer to let us know if we needed any food items or pro shop items we could purchase them through “the window”…….. perhaps the window is due to Covid??? If so, I am having a hard time understanding why the staff member was not wearing a mask, why he stuck his head up to and almost through the window. If the side window was NOT because of COVID, it was a great inconvenience for those of us who needed balls and like to purchase souvenirs. I felt the customer service was lacking. No warning that the greens had just been punched/ aerated. We didn’t know where to return the the cart when we finished. .

Excellent course

Very well conditioned course with beautiful views of the lake. It’s kind of neat how you are seeing the lake on nearly every hole but you only go over a finger of the lake on one par three shot. Greens were fast and true.

Good wide fairway golf.

Don't go the HWY 35 route if you can help it. This course is just off HWY 72 and HWY 79. Just outside Scottsboro, Alabama.
