Employees very friendly. Greens were great. Front nine was in better shape than the back nine as the back needed some serious mowing. Will recommend.

No water or cart girl on the course. If not providing water on the course I'm sure you could find someone who would like to earn some money selling drinks out of a cooler if a standard drink cart isn't available. Saturday morning, packed course and hot. Course was in very good shape, staff was extremely friendly.

Based on previous reviews and the price, me and a few friends make the drive from Atlanta to try out this course. From the moment we pulled into the parking lot, we knew this round was going to be unique. We were met at our car with both carts delivered by a very friendly marshal. The clubhouse was nice and the excellent customer service continued. We teed off on time and marshals worked hard to keep the pace on this very hot day. The course was in good shape and was laid out just like i prefer (no two holes are the same). We played the whites and the course played average difficulty, but there was quite a bit of course knowledge required to play it well. As the temperatures soared, the marshals saw that we were all getting a bit burned out and actually brought us ice water from the club house. As you have read the are working on safely securing the water on the course from local kids. Long story short, this was a fun course at a great value with very friendly staff. We'll be coming back.

Greens are in great shape, but were in need of being cut.... like the rest of the course. We’ve had a good bit of rain lately but you have to be able to cut the grass in adverse conditions if you’re going to run a golf course and let people play. This course is a little elbow grease away from being worth every bit of $45-$55. No water jugs on the course. I’ve heard that is from vandalism but a $5 lock could fix that pretty dang good easily. Last complaint, there was a 5 some on the course and another group that played their second 18 and jumped right in front of us before teeing off.

I try to play this course on Thursdays because it’s $28 all you can play. I usually play 18 holes as practice, then play another 18 all for $28. The pace of play was great, the greens are getting faster and the fairways are getting better. I enjoy playing here!!! Staff is always welcoming.

Played the course many times but will not play this course again. The owner has an obvious dislike for Golf Now bookings and has displayed borderline rude behavior the last several times I have used Golf Now tee times. Too many other good golf courses to play and not have to deal with the attitude.

I play this course a few times a year, and if the greens are as they often are fast and perfect, I tolerate the fairways lack of grass. Today the greens were the poorest I've seen them since they were burnt out a few years ago. They were uneven and contain many weeds. I will continue to play as I like the layout, but I will be waiting a while to see if they can get the greens back into their usual pristine condition.
