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.

great Friday round

It was a little wet, but to be expected after all the rain the last few weeks. Tee boxes and greens in perfect shape. Greens were hard and FAST! fast as i have ever seen them. Saw that they are raising rates by 5 bucks....I guess that is fair considering the shape the course is in right now. Keep up the good work folks! I will be back.

State course always a pleasure

Laura Walker State Course is always a pleasurable experience.
First the staff always welcomes you. Nice!
The tee boxes, fairways and greens are in great shape. The fairways are generous and plush. The greens are large and pin placements are challenging. Two puts are welcome, there are 3 putts out there, be careful
Enjoy,

State park public course

For a public course the state is doing a great job. Fairways were lush and greens rolled true. Played 3 times this weekend and pace was great, under 4 hours each time.

great condition

Course is in really good shape. Only concerns is that the green would not hold a ball at all. I understand the greens are fairly new so I am sure that is why,. Will definitely play again!
