This was my first time playing the course. There are LOTS of tee shots where you need local knowledge as to how far to hit your drive or you go through the fairway and into a hazard or into the rough with a terrible lie. The course is beautiful with lots or very pretty holes and beautiful views.

The guys in pro shop were super nice and very accommodating.

The course has lots of elevation changes up and down. On the front nine, I don't thinks I ever had a flat stance. I was always above or below the ball or on a side-hill lie.

Never play the course alone for your first time. I lost several balls simply due to not knowing the distance to the end of the fairway on several short par 4 holes. Even the par 5 holes (#1) you have to know the distance to the end of the fairway or you go through the fairway into the hazard and lose your ball.

The course is beautiful and in a great setting in the mountains. There were several holes where I saw deer and other wild life.

The condition of the fringe around almost all the greens is not great, but not a deal breaker for playing course because the greens are in great condition.

I got stuck (holes 8 - 18) behind a group of 4 who would not let me play through. I was waiting for them on every single hole (8 - 18) and they never let me play through or ever said a word to me even though I was always at the tee box as they were just leaving the tee box. They were terrible golfers and on every par three where they could have easily let me play through, not one of them was ever on the green in regulation and still, they did not care at all. I was nice and did not hit into them at all, but I definitely should have. I know the course has nothing to do with a foursome being slow and not letting singles or twosomes play through, it is just that four, inconsiderate, guys kind of ruined a great day because I had to wait for them on every single hole (8 - 18).

Overall the course was in nice condition. The greens had recently been sanded so they were extremely slow. The bunkers needed a little attention. The fairways were in great shape. Greens crew were visible putting fans in selected holes so you know they are protecting the conditions. No beverage service on Mondays and Tuesdays. We had hoped to have lunch afterwards but we're told There was no kitchen service on those days either. tge views were amazing. I'll go back again.

This place is a shotmakers Paradise. Has sectioned fairways with elevation changes all over. Greens were emaculant but slower than most nice courses. Which was not necessarily a bad thing just took time to get used to. Must play !!!

Played 18 holes as a single on a beautiful Thurs. afternoon in 2 1/2 hours, teeing off at 12:30PM. Only played through one group -at number 10. Challenging layout, particularly off the tees playing for the first time. A couple of "funky" par 5s with Nos. 1, 5 and 18 that definintely need to be played multiple times to get comfortable. But as long as you control your tee shots, you can score quite well. If you are coming from fast green courses, be prepared - they roll true, but slow here . Overall, a great value at $26 (particulalry compared with other nearby courses) and I'll definitely be back again. Worth the extra drive.

Course was in great shape with many of the fairways starting to or mostly greened up. The greens were slow, but considering the were aerating the day after I played it is to be expected. Well worth the 40 minutes from Marietta!

Only reason on don't give 5 stars is due to the slow greens and the fairways don't have that much grass at this time but it's kind of expected this time of year. Clubhouse and staff are great folk, one of the best pro shops I have ever seen. And the highlands grill has amazing food!!

The course has some great views and the greens are in fantastic shape. The ball gets plenty of roll after it lands so make sure you plan for that when hitting. Alot of the fairways lean left or right and the ball will roll down to the edge if you dont have any spin on your ball like mine. Overall a nice course for the money.
