Great course and new carts

This is a great course for all skill levels. New golf carts with ultimatum break. Just come to a complete stop and get out, no foot break to set. Plus a power outlet for your GPS. Rest food in the club house

Avoid the bunkers

Fairways-excellent. Greens-excellent. Layout-excellent. Tee boxes-pretty good. Bunkers- horrible. Just mud and dry mud. I bet they haven’t added sand or power raked them in years. They need to grass them like rough or maintain them. Also not one ball washer was operable. Fix a couple things and the course would be back to the pristine condition it once was.

Not GolfNow Friendly

The staff seems put out that they have GolfNow tee times. Not helpful when you’re trying to find others in your GolfNow group. I’ve played this course hundreds of times since late 70’s. It is sad to see it go downhill. It’s average at best now days. Tee boxes are vacant of turf. Ball washers are empty and or broken. Bunkers are not maintained. Hardly even a trash can on the course. I wouldn’t play here if it wasn’t a hot deal.

Just like I remember

I lived about 6 miles from this course most of life until I moved to Huntsville. The course has always been beautiful and well cut and still is. It is not a long course but it has it’s challenges. The price is incredible and I would rather play this course than a lot of the larger courses. The staff is incredible and very friendly. I just love the surroundings of this course.

2 brothers that love this course

We are never disappointed. Mrs. Doris is continuing the tradition her husband Mr. Bryce started years ago. One of the top courses in the area including the Chattanooga area. Absolutely love this place.

Not what we expected

Drove 1hour and 40 minutes to play this “hidden gem”, having played canyon ridge (spectacular course) up the road a couple of years ago

Staff we very pleasant but the course is in horrible condition except the greens.

Tees boxes we’re far from flat and lots weeds and patches of grass.

Fairways were not smooth and flush, quite similar to the tee box.

Layout was fun and unique.

Views were nothings to write home about.

Won’t be back but only because of the of the quality of the tee boxes and fairways.

Good and challenging course

Little steep in price for the area it’s located in, but the course itself is a fun one to play with fun par 3s and well kept greens and bunkers. I’m sure I’ll play again.
