Had the opportunity to play this excellent course a couple of years ago but forgot what a great layout it was. Visually stunning holes #12-17 that abut the lake and greens fast and true. Can't wait to return again. If only it was closer to metro Atlanta.....

I play this course frequently. It is well maintained and beautiful. The staff is very helpful and courteous. The carts are clean and I have never had one fail on me. The greens are always in great shape. The only thing I would question is the slope ratings. Though this course is wide open on most holes, it always seems to play harder than it should. I typically score 5 to 10 strokes higher on this course than on most. It is not a problem with the course as it is fantastic, but I think the length of some holes and the optics have a tendency to make one play harder. The only reason I question the slope ratings is that it affects your handicap computations. BTW, the guys who play with me on a regular basis feel the same. That being said, I keep going back and will continue to do so. I love this place.

Arrowhead Pointe is a real treat. Absolutely beautiful layout, groomed to a "t," friendly staff, nice pro shop and grill, convenient practice areas, just a delight. Affordable, playable and beautiful. It's now my home course. No better value for the price.

Great course! You won't find one nicer. Beautiful lake views, greens, and moderate elevation changes, peaceful,only surrounded by woods and lake, great staff,pro shop,and food to order, make this course a very worthwhile destination.

This course is in the middle of nowhere, which is great, very isolated no surrounding noise. The visuals on and around this course are above average! It has to be one of the nicest courses I have played. The course conditions were above average, very pleased. I would have preferred the greens to be cut a little tighter to take some of the grain out. I will return.

It is always a wonderful experience to play at Arrowhead Pointe. The facility, pro shop, staff, course, amenities, is always exceptional. The only reason I don't play this course more I live 90 miles away.

Once on the course I alway feel like I'm at a private resort and not a State Park course, the back nine are absolutely beautiful. This is a must play course for the price.

This place exceeded my expectations as well as the guys I brought with me. We drove a little over an hour from Augusta and could not have been happier! Course in great shape with some punishing rough to deal with. Greens are just a bit slow but roll great, tee boxes and fairways are wonderful, and traps were needing some tlc from recent heavy rains but nothing I was worried about really. Very nice driving range and challenging putting green to get you prepared! Great food inside clubhouse and super staff. Keep offering golfnow options and we will make it a regular stop!
