Picturesque setting

Challenging course in the state park so no cars or houses which I love. Course is in great shape. Bunkers not the best but they were consistent. It’s a bit of a drive for me but the experience is wonderful and even if you are having a bad day golfing, the setting is so peaceful and scenic that you will enjoy yourself.

Beautiful course!

We drove about 150 miles to play this corse and we camped at Richard B Russell State Park campground. Played the course twice and never got tired of the views. The course layout is great with some of the best lake views anywhere. The greens and fairways are in perfect condition. The greens have two or three levels, definitely the hardest I have ever played. So many three putts!!!

My wife drove the cart even though she does not play, she just wanted to enjoy the views.

You should play this course.

What a gem

Absolutely stunning golf course.

One of the most scenic I've seen.

Clubhouse amenities are great. Extremely friendly staff.

The course conditions are impeccable. Front nine challenging and beautiful, weaving through the state park forests.

But the back nine is where the stunning lake views are. Absolutely incredible. I can't believe this is a state park course and that it only costs 40 dollars on a weekend.

I will definitely return. Well worth the 1 hour drive from my home.

As always Arrowhead Pointe was in excellent shape even with all the rain we have been getting.The maintenance staff does a great job keeping the course in tip top shape,the pro shop staff is always friendly and helpful.This is the best most scenic peaceful course in the area.This is a must play,if you haven't been here you are missing out,I am local,but the stay and play looks like a great guy's trip with a stay in the cabins on the lake.Well worth the drive from anywhere.They also now have a very well stocked pro shop and grill area with very reasonable prices.Put this course on your bucket list.

Views

I played Arrowhead Pointe on 7/27 at 12:00pm. I booked the 12:00 hot deal for $19 for a single. There was a 2-some that also booked the 12:00. The course was somewhat empty and the starter had no problem with me teeing off first as a single. I tee’d off at 11:45 and made the turn at 1:10. Didn’t catch anyone until around #11, which that 3-some let me play thru. My entire round was just a hair under 3hrs. Course was beautiful with awesome views. Stay in the fairway, the rough is legit. Greens were very nice and rolled true. Entire staff from clubhouse to grill were very friendly. Great experience. Will definitely be back again.

Down to Arrowhead Pointe

My friend Ken and I drove down to Arrowhead Pointe at Richard Russell State Park near Elberton. If there was ever a "hidden jewel" of a golf course, this is it. The course is well maintained; the views are breathtaking; and the ameneties are excellent. The people working at the course were warm and friendly and seemed to be interested in our having a good round at Arrowhead Pointe. I have played the course before and found the rough to be "really rough", but today everything was pristine. If you haven't played this course, you're missing a great opportunity. We drove 50 miles to get there and we will be back.

This course was very challenging. If you keep your ball in the fairway, you will have a good chance for birdie or par. Great course and fantastic staff!

One of the best courses in Georgia

I love to play this course. It is a distance to drive to it, but more than worth the drive. Rates are very reasonable. Fairways in great condition. Greens were punched about a week earlier and were growing back in very well. They were very soft and slow, but held ball very well. Played on Father's Day at noon. Saw some other player's as I started. Saw almost no one while I played. My wife went along to drive the cart and enjoy the scenic views. We had lunch in the clubhouse, nicest of any course I play including UGA course. Great peace, quite and enjoyable.

A hidden Gem in Georgia

Course was great. Wide fairways but don’t let that fool you into thinking this course is easy. It’s very well designed and maintained. Super friendly staff. Greens are pretty good size and roll very well. Beautiful lake views on a lot of holes. Plenty of shade and water cooler on the course for those hot summer days. I will play this course again even though it’s an hour away from my house.
