Golf now problem

So I got the course ready to play only to find out they no longer accept Golfnow and wouldn’t allow me to play because they’re having issues.

Could be great!

My GPS took me thru several Scenic, winding back roads to find this course. Entering the driveway my high expectations were gradually degrading only based on visuals of the club house with “country club” in its name, but it’s a Saturday, the sun is shining and I’m about to play golf so I’ll make the best of it.

Walking up to the clubhouse I could infer that this facility has been around for some time as to why some of its facility features were dated, but again I’m here to play the course!

Staff was friendly and accommodating although it appeared that they didn’t expect the number of golfers onsite because of scrambling to get carts prepped.

Rain over the last few days was obvious on the course but no fault of there own, thanks meteorologists.

The Good-the layout of this course is spectacular. The holes are framed throughout the terrain that makes every hole fun to play and different. It’s a shotmakers course in which many holes require placement vs. length. Elevation changes promoted thinking but also for great scenery. Hole 18 surrounding the lake was very picturesque. Played it from the white tees around 6400 yards I believe.

The bad-this course has the ability to be a premier course in the area, IF more time and money was spent on course maintenance(tee boxes, fairways and greens). The tee boxes were bare, the fairways were defined but spotty and the greens were “puttable” but still could use some attention.

Overall- I would play this course again and look forward to seeing how this course shapes up. My only concern would be based on the pro shop stating “this is the best shape the course has been in some time“, makes me believe that the conditions are as good as it gets. Hopefully I’m wrong. Still enjoyed playing the course, get a good maintenance crew and this will be a gem!

Winter Round

We teed off right on time. The setup was good, the greens were consistent and quick.
Due to a temp of 40 degrees few ppl were willing to play. Our experience was wonderful.
Me and my son teed from the tips, my daughter and my Mom putted on each green.
The conditions were wet and muddy but it did not deter us in the least. The layout was a challenge-no birdies were made but it was fair.
I recommend it to anyone who can play a little.
It stretched out to near 7,000 yards. I shot 82 and my son 96. We were both challenged to the nth degree!

Great layout

Great layout of this course. lots of interesting shots. Not a "grip it and rip it" course at all. Greens were in good shape although pretty fluffy. Could be because of the time of year. Lots of rough patches on the sides of the fairways. All in all good value for money.

Coffee was free!

Gem of a Course

The only thing better than the course was the friendliness of the employees. Great layout with every hole different. Wish I lived in the area to be able to play more often.

Enjoyable layout

Enjoyed the front nine and then really enjoyed the last 5-6 holes.
Has a lot of different looks.
Some classic holes.
Some big elevation.
Greens a little slow but there were in great shape.
The fairways are Bermuda that are in great shape allowing the ball to sit up perfectly.
Would definitely play here again.
Worth your money.

Hidden Gemstone

This well hidden gem of a golf course right off Hwy 79 is well worth playing as often as you can. This outstanding layout has six valley holes to get your interest peaked and warm up your game before heading uphill for eight beautifully prepared mountain holes. The folks at RTG wish they had eight upland holes in a row this good but trust me they don’t . Next you come down from the highlands to finish with four more excellent valley holes including a risk reward cut of as much water as you dare 18th finishing hole. The greens are still in perfect shape and proper speed.

Good day!

The course is average. Pretty on back 9. Short course for women. No bathroom on course. That was a huge surprise. The weather is very hot and dry so I’m sure under better circumstances it would be better. We will try again. We had a great rate. Good value!!

Fun day...

I had not played Cumberland Lakes in many years... It was well worth my return trip today.. Course is much improved and in very good condition... I really enjoyed my round... The guy in the shop could not have been nicer plus he made a mean chicken club sandwich... I have already told my friends about it... Can't wait to go back...

Best course you've never heard of.

Check this place out, can't believe I've lived in North Alabama for over 30 years and never so much as heard of this place. Scenery and layout make this one of best I've played in area. Small con for some right now, they just aerated one nine yesterday and one today. That said sand and all the greens rolled about as fast and true if not better than most of other courses right now. Can't imagine how wonderful must have been last week...or in a couple more. I don't write reviews and am rarely either particularly impressed or disappointed by most things, bit I really was impressed today. Definitely worth the slightly over an hour drive.

Playing an old friend

My wife and I were members of this golf club 35 years ago. The course has always been a challenge. The course overall is a great value for the money.. The fairways are mostly in good condition. The greens are above average and a challenge. I highly recommend it.

Great track for the price.

This was my first experience at Cumberland Lake and I will definitely be back. The course is in great shape. Tee boxes and greens were well maintained. Greens were on the slow side but still very smooth. Cumberland Lake is a very scenic course with some challenging holes. I look forward to playing here again.
