Would have been perfect

except I played horribly, and one hole had a jerk on the boat offshore that kept blowing his horn.

Really nice!

First let me say Thank You to to the GM Gary. I played the course last April and was critical. Gary invited me back out and really enjoyed the day.

The conditions and staff friendless was also significantly improved. I went from saying I will never go back to looking forward to playing again.

Overall the view are excellent and the conditions good. There are a few weird holes, but most courses have those.

If I could give 4 1/2 Stars I would..

Thanks again Gary!

Fun Day!!

I have played this before for a scramble, but this was my first with some friends. The course was wet, and it was cart only, which makes it harder. That said, you can't control mother nature. The course is beautiful and very well laid out. I'm looking forward to going back on a day where the weather is more cooperative.

Excellent as always

Even though there was an alert about the greens being punched. The greens were very decent. My favorite course, just can't afford to play here all the time .

Always a great day

One of the best courses in Georgia with amazing views and a great layout. Greens are recovering from being aerated which will probably take a week or so to recover but rest of the course is in amazing shape. Growing the rough up which makes the course play that little extra difficulty. Just want to give a shout out to the staff, starters and Marshall’s, all were extremely friendly and professional. A great day on the course for sure.

Near perfection

The course is outstanding and the staff is amazing. What a great day on the course, conditions are near perfect, fairways are lush and cut nice; rough is growing up making it even harder and the greens are recovered nicely. This course is a great challenge with amazing beauty. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. Really appreciate the great day!!!
