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.

Return to a favorite

I play this course whenever I’m at the lake. Have played here for years. Not uncommon to see 6 players in a group. Hardly a Marshall in sight. Travel destination so a little tee time attention would go a long way. Still a favorite

No thanks!

Beautiful day for a round of golf. The only thing that could ruin it would be slow play, and that's what happened. The clubhouse allowed fivesomes, and they were on a blistering 5-6 hour pace of play. Playing thru simply put me in the midst of the same, so I tapped out at the turn. There wasn't a staff person in sight on the course to assist the slow play. I probably won't go back. If you have all day, enjoy. If not, look elsewhere.

Excellent golf outing

This is my first time playing the Lake Course at Goose Pond and it was a delightful experience.
The course is well laid out with some challenging holes. Lots of water and tough pin placements.
The course was in great condition considering all the rain we’ve had. Steven in the Pro Shop is an asset to the experience. Will certainly return!

Beautiful day for a round of golf!

Had the afternoon off, took a drive in the sunshine to get in a round before dinner plans with friends. The course was not busy, but the pace of play was horrendous. And since there was no staff out on the course to keep things moving, it became a 6 hour round kind of pace. I left after 9 holes. I won't be back unless they address this issue by having a ranger/Marshall on the course.

Greens were phenomenal

Early in the year with the wettest winter in my time in N. Alabama, as expected some soggy spots, but the greens were phenomenal

Winter play

To be completely honest, the weather lately has been cold and wet. With that said, the fairways where somewhat “hairy” and there was a lot of matted grass clippings all over; making for difficult shots in many areas. However the greens were in excellent condition and rolled true (sprayed green for asthetics). Tees were in good shape as well. Wasn’t a fan of how the tees were set up (we played white and they were playing long...210yd par 3, YIKES!).

Will definitely play again in the spring/summer though!
