Know before you go

Made a tee time 3 weeks in advance. Was told the cost would be 39.00. Was told the greens were area red several days prior. Arrived to find out that an additional 20.00 PER PERSON cart fee had not been included in my quote. Grumbled but paid it. Warmed up. Tee’d off only to find the greens were grooved AND heavily sanded. I mean like going to the beach! Much better golf for less Monet at Callahans or Arrowhead. Fairways is off limits now.

Great golf course

Fairways were clean and neat. Mowed with precision. Tee boxes were in great shape. The only recommendation is to install ready rooms along the course instead of porta-potties.

Beautiful views

I like the layout of the course. It has some of the most beautiful view in GA. It is challenging. I don’t feel that the slope is high enough. But, the holes are fair, when you make the correct shot. It’s in great condition. A little pricey for a public club.

Nice but...

Nice course but will be more fun next time. Kind of tricky if you don’t know the layout. Greens have been recently aerated so that took away from the experience. Looking forward to playing when greens are in their usual shape. Overall course is challenging but fair.

Did not get to play.

My son had called and wanted to play golf. He lives 4 hours away, but drove up to play golf. I booked through Golf Now on Thursday August 8th to play the following Sat August 10th. When we arrived to the course approximately 25 min before tee time and went to check in we were told they did not take reservations through Golf Now. I showed them my reservations on my phone and they said this was Golf Now problem and there was nothing they could do. They would not refund money. They would not give me a different tee time or offer to work us in. The guy there suggested I call Golf Now or go up the road to another course. The young lady said they had not taken reservations for 2 weeks through Golf Now and if I puled it up now I would not be able to book I tee time. I pulled it up and was able to see 2 spots for the exact tee time I had booked ( I had of course booked 2 of the 4 available two nights earlier.
The people at this course could care less and took no responsibility for the issue. The guy there even said I should call and work it out with Golf Now. No offer to assist. When I said they should help work this out he said "It was my money I should be the one to call. HORRIBLE!! I would not recommend due to the lack of staf interest in helping.

Greens, Not!!

Overall the course was in great shape. But greens were nonexistent!! Recent aeration and tons of sand poured onto them made putting Horrendous!! Very bumpy and with obvious breaks showing, non could be found. Had I know the greens were “sand traps”, I probably would have played somewhere else. I love this layout, and the views are breathtaking, but I will ask about the condition of the greens next time.

greens

Course overall in very good shape. Staff always friendly. Fairly new carts are nice. A little crowded for a Monday morning, but it thinned out as the heat increased. Major complaint was the greens. Not sure when they were aerated, but all greens still had RR tracks with sand. Not very playable. No notice on GN. Not a day to keep an accurate score, as no putts actually rolled as intended.

Hi Carlton, we are sorry about the weather, but we suggest (if you haven't already) reaching out to GolfNow to discuss the situation and see what they can do. We hope next time will be a better experience.

Great Challenging course

I found the golf staff in the clubhouse to be extremely friendly and accommodating. The course was in excellent condition with fast greens and awesome fairways. Very difficult holes which makes me want to return to challenge. As for the restaurant, I was there at lunch time on Thursday and sat down at a table for 20 minutes and did not get approached for service even thought there were several girls working at the bar area. I decided to skip lunch.

Beautiful day ! Course was in GREAT shape !!
Just a FUN course to play with a challenging layout and greens that demand accuracy

Course is in fantastic condition. Greens are very fast. Lots of elevation changes. Narrow fairways. Course is on the short side, but by no means is it easy. Nice mountain vista views on a few holes, 18 especially. Only wish I lived closer.

Great shape! Challenging layout.

Course was in great shape from tee boxes to greens. I played here often last season because i live so close, but there haven't been any 9 hole tee times listed for late afternoon play. I work strange hours and they worked well for me and my 80 year old father. I paid for 18 on a hot deal (which was worth it) but am hoping they bring back 9 hole rates.
