The National, designed by Tom Fazio, offers a 27-hole experience where no two holes are alike, but all share elements of blending into their natural environment, hence earning the nickname “The Natural”. The three nines are all named for the type of terrain they feature. The Cove Nine gradually slopes down to the lake bringing the coves of Lake Oconee into play. The Ridge Nine meanders inland and offers dramatic elevation changes providing challenging shots from tee to green.

First time playing Used cart Perfect weather

Upon arrival our group was greeted by friendly cart attendants who took our bags and directed us to the golf house where the shop attendant checked us in very promptly. After hitting some range balls we headed to the putting green which is very we should have spent the majority of our warm up. While the greens had been punched about 2 weeks ago, they were extremely fast! Once we began playing we noticed the true beauty of the layout before us. The Ridge and the Bluffs nines had rolling fairways and beautiful bunker placements. The rough was very thick and provided a stiff penalty for missing any fairway. While the two nines did not offer many lake views (except for the par 3 #4 on The Bluffs which was beautiful) the course was gorgeous nonetheless and an absolute joy to play.
