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.

Course was in great conditions, tight fairways and fast, true greens. However the pace of play was awful. It took 2/12 hours to play front nine. We ended stopping after 16 holes because it was so slow.

The weather was wonderful and the course is in very good shape for early spring. The only minor fault was that the greens were a little bumpy and slower than you would expect due to the punch marks not being totally healed yet. In a couple of weeks, conditions should excellent. I look forward to my next trip back here. Everyone was very friendly from the starter to the two groups who invited us (a twosome) to play through.

This is a must play if you are looking for a challenge. The course easily matches or exceeds those of the Alabama RTJ Trail courses. Every hole is unique and each green is a challenge. Without a doubt, the UGA team has a huge home course advantage as you need to play multiple rounds there to learn the greens that have few if any straight putts.

I have played this course 50-100 times and always had a wonderful experience in the past. The staff is typically extremely helpful and courteous. However, when I played on December 1st things were different than normal. I booked my tee time for 1 player on golf now just as I have done nearly every other time I played the course in the past. When I arrived and stated my tee time, the attendant in the pro-shop asked where my other three players where. I said it was just myself today and he asked "what happened? Did they cancel on you?" Sensing a slight attitude in his tone I began to wonder if I had accidentally booked the tee time for four instead of one. However, he quickly alerted me my tee time was for 1 player but that his course did not book single tee times and this must be a mistake. Surprised, I told him I had booked a thousand of 1 player tee times on golf now at the course to which he responded "[w]ell someone has gotten it wrong a thousand times." As a frequent player at the course, this type of attitude and rudeness was not what I expected nor what I was used to. Further, to counter the issue of single tee times, the day I played was 50 degree weather and windy and the course was empty. I will be back because the course is convenient and I enjoy playing it but I do not think the attitude and demeanor displayed on December 1st was how UGA should be represented to outsiders. Also, I can vouch for every one else I have ever dealt with in the pro-shop and they are always professional and courteous.

I am very sorry to hear of the way you were treated by our staff on your last visit to the University Golf Course.

If you wish, please feel free to call me at 706-369-5739 to discuss this in more detail. Once again, I am sorry for your poor customer service experience. We hope to see you back again soon.
