The course was in excellent shape even this time of year. Greens rolled great - some pins were very challenging. Don’t let your ego choose your tee box. It plays long at any level.

Great course especially when on a hot deal or twilight package.

This course is in great shape. The tee boxes have grass the fairways and rough are perfect. The greens are the best we have played. I will be back to place this course again soon. Everyone there was very friendly and practice area is great.

Never played here? Play. Ever wonder why there are so many PGA Tour players from UGA? Play here and you'll understand.

To play this course exceptionally well requires you to work the ball both ways. However, if you are smart, on the holes where the bend doesn't fit your natural ball flight, you'll not let the total distance of the hole frighten you, and you'll stick with your "go to" tee shot, which might mean you club down. What? You thought I said you have to work the ball both ways. Right. But, most really good players favor a fade or draw, and if you are on a tee that demands a shot shape that is not "go to" you will club down, accept a longer club to the green, and rely on a tight short game. This is that golf course. Demanding at every turn.

Every par4/5 has a runway strip of fairway. Hitting that strip is imperative. If not, you're in medium length bermuda rough and no bargain. Very few holes are straight away and in short, I'd say this is one of the most challenging [public] courses you can play in the state. I've played most of the best public and private courses in Georgia and this is one of the absolute best pure "golf" experiences, where you'll use every club and every shot. Seriously, this is on par with the Highlands course at Atlanta Athletic Club, except that the greens at AAC are sick, and the greens here are not.

I'm very good and I will only play here every so often, because it really exposes any weakness, and it is somewhat infuriating. Especially when you miss fairway after fairway. Here's what I say to myself before I get to the first tee. "Today I have to understand that I will likely hit only 6 or 7 fairways. Hitting a fairway is a perfect lie and a treat. Take advantage of the opportunity when you're in the fairway. Missing a fairway is why I play the game. I'm going to need to pitch and chip the ball well to keep my score going." If I don't say this, I'm playing with false expectations and will always be disappointed in myself. If I do, I know what to expect, which is to rely on my short game. If you expect to be pitching and chipping the ball, you'll look forward to the chances. If you don't, you'll be cursing yourself constantly.

The one bummer is that the regulars that play here do NOT repair their ball marks and despite the staff's desire to have perfect greens, many local yocals ruine what could literally be a perfect tour quality golf course to all that play here.

We played here on Sunday and was charged 70.00 to find out they had poorly punched and sanded the greens. So we asked why no discount and we were told " if we lower the price it will bring more people out to play and the greens won't recover. By keeping the price up hopefully it will keep people away and let the greens recover ". Needless to say we were floored by that response. Me nor anyone in my group will ever be back.

You should definitely give it another shot. The UGA greens are perfect 80% of the year. They get plenty of play so I don't doubt the reasoning for not discounting rates.

Always a great track. An exceptional value thru golf now. This is a course you want to play. Very tough from back tees but fair also from forward tees. The course is very well kept and the greens are perfect. You won't be disappointed!!

They really need to have marshals riding the course to keep pace of play up. 2 some in front of us were very slow and riding carts on par 3s and up to most collars of the greens. Played on a Friday around lunch.....no beverage cart seen no Marshall seen. Kinda disappointed in this regard. Greens were good and true.
