Course is in decent shape. Hot deals rate is decent. Rake rate for this course is absolutely ridiculous. Scottsboro should be ashamed. However, through hot deals rate and Golf Pass perks, my round was FREE.

One of the Best Courses in Northern Alabama

Had a great day to play and the course was in great condition except for the traps. Happily I only ended up in 3 or 4 traps but they mostly have little of no sand. Other than that the course is a fair test of golf from the white tees that I always play. Were it not for the traps I would have given the course conditions 5 stars and when I played this course earlier this year the traps were excellent so this review is ONLY for this recent visit. I also didn't interact with staff on this visit so I'm giving it a good rating based on this and previous visits. I also paid nothing for the round because I used a Golf Pass+ free round couponI had earned but if Golf Now stopped working with this course like they have with another course in my area that is one of my favorites I would pay their regular rates to play this course. BTW, the other course I just referenced is going to offer its own Golf Now like discounts in the future and I will definitely play that courses rates to play too.

Awesome course. Views everywhere

This course was amazing. It has a nice layout. One of the best courses I’ve played. The lake is all around this course. Nearly every hole has a great view of the lake. Never thought I’d be playing golf and halfway wishing I was fishing. I will definitely be going back.

Needs better course marshaling

I have always enjoyed playing this course. However the past couple of times I have been, there has been no one driving around marshaling the course. For example, when I made the turn to the back nine today, there ended up being 5 groups stacked up...One on the green, one in the fairway, and three waiting to tee off. With a little bit of management, several of those groups (2 somes) could have been paired. No offense but there shouldn’t be that much stack up

Goose Pond Lake Course

The course was excellent and presented some challenges I have not seen on some other courses in my area.

The course, staff and facilities were all excellent.

First Time Playing

Super fun course, great layout!!

This was my first time playing here. I pick a new course every year for my birthday round and I have heard good things about this course for years. It’s a really fun course! It’s forgiving enough for a beginner to play but also is challenging for the experienced player who wants to score. I’m a 7 handicap and definitely had to think my way around. I can only describe it as fun. My wife came along for her second round ever and was also very pleased at how she was able to keep the ball in play and enjoy the round. Obviously she picked up several times but not out of frustration. We both really enjoyed it. The greens could be in a little better shape if I wanted to be picky but I’d really have to be being picky. They were a 7.5 out of 10 and for the most part they rolled true and we’re very consistent. The fairways were in excellent shape and the staff are friendly. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to have an excellent golfing experience with beautiful views and a fantastic course!!

Good once again

Played the course for the second time this season;this time the fairways weren’t dormant. Love the layout and the course offers challenges for all levels.

Fairways were just a bit hairy but in really good condition. Greens were fast and tee boxes were in great shape.

Playing on a very windy day like we did makes this course all you want from a length standpoint.

My only issue is I wish they offered more as far as pro sho, clubhouse and restaurant go but I will still be back. Excellent value with a GolfNow tee time.
