Rain,,,no worries

This course is a nice course to play. Even though it rained on and off it did not keep us from having a good round. Pretty sure this will be our next course to become members of and I will tell everyone

Enjoyable round

My wife and I played here numerous times in 1972-1975, when the course was relatively new. I always liked it then, thinking it could be even better with maturity. It was a treat to play it again, and I was impressed with the conditions and some tweaking of the layout. There is plenty of length, but room to drive the ball, and there is a good variety of long and short holes, doglegs left and right. The fairways were excellent, and greens were slow but smooth. The staff was friendly, and pace of play was fast, as we teed off at 2:00 pm and never waited until #17, finishing in 3 1/2 hours.

Overall, a great value and a fun golf course in a nice setting.

Local Knowledge

Definitely some bending doglegs from the back tees.. if you play from further up they aren’t as prominent. The course is over all in pretty good condition the greens are slow but they are smooth and roll true.

Consistent greens

Course played fair. Played from white tees. Greens were on the slow side, rolled consistently and held shots. Appreciate the variety where every tee shot doesn't have to be driver. Number 10 tee box is scraggly, has always been since I've played here. Other than that everything else seemed to be maintained. Like playing this course despite the 40 min drive from Augusta. Will play again.

Nice course

Wide open, fairly straightforward course. Nothing too difficult, only major challenge would be multiple greenside bunkers. A low handicapper would probably not be significantly challenged. Greens decent, a little burned out in spots, but very playable. Fairways not quite mowed as short as most, but rough not very thick. Played on a beautiful fall Tuesday afternoon, and course not crowded. Twosome played 18 in less than 3 hours. Course is out in the country, so not sure how crowded it gets. Pro shop attendant very friendly. Nice electric carts. Probably wouldn't play this course regularly, but it was worth the drive to play at a leisurely pace on a decent course. Good $ on GN hot deal.

Great value and nice track

Had the course to ourselves just about. Two of us played it in 3 1/2 hours. Front nine in nice shape. Back nine needs some greens work. They are putting sod in places that need it. They were spraying and dropping fertilizer so they're working the course. Looking forward to playing it again. For $12 with the golf now discount you can't beat it!

My only complaint was that the grill was closed but it was understandable because of Covid-19.

Good challenge
