Mark’s review

Great course and condition. The only complaint that I have is, it was a very hot and humid day, and none of the water coolers was to be found! Also, no beverage cart was available!

Best of the Best!

This is by far the best course I have played! The fairways are like green carpet with challenging greens. Most fairways are wide which appeal to the average golfer. There are plenty of water ways to keep you on your game. Because of Covivid19 I couldn't rate either staff or off course amenities.

Goose Pond Lake

Tees and fairways are pretty nice. Greens are still recovering from aeration but still roll nice and fast. There are a few blind shots and shot shaping is needed. Personally I prefer the plantation course, but this one is right up there too.

Goose Pond Lake

Course has a great layout. Tees and fairways were in nice condition, greens were still healing from aeration but rolled nice and fast. There’s a couple blind tee shots, and you’ll have to shape the ball a little. Personally I enjoyed the plantation course more but this one is right there close.

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.
