Old Union Best in Area

There are several courses in North Georgia to choose from - The Ridges, Brasstown Valley, Chatuge Shores and Old Union. It is worth the drive north out of Blairsville to play here. Links style layout, challenging shots reward accuracy, and greens rolled true. I love every round here!

Love this course

This is one of my favorite course layouts. Course is in good condition. Only a couple issues I had were the 3 some that decided to start on number 10 while I was putting out on number 9. Took 2.5 hours to play the back 9. Not a huge issue, but it should be addressed. Other issue is the fact that very few people that play there fix their ball marks. I spent 5 to 10 minutes on every green fixing ball marks. If everyone would fix their ball marks, the greens would be great. I will be playing it several more times the next few months.

Barbara & Bruce Old Union

My wife and I travel in our motorhome and play golf as much as we can in different states and cities. We were camping in Hiawassee Ga. near the Old Union Golf Course, Ga. The weather was overcast look like rain the day we played golf. The course for a Georgia mountain course was in fair/poor condition. The green were very slow and you needed some care, traps were in fair shape. I would not recommend playing Old Union Golf Course do to the condition of the course. This course is run by the local government. The swimming pool and tennis courts were in very poor condition. Save your money.

What a gem in north GA!

While staying with the in-laws, I went out Sunday morning to play by myself. I wasn't sure what to expect but I found a gem! Course in good shape and challenging. I'll be playing every time I visit.

Great Place to Play- Not for beginners

Wanted to get out of the comfort zone and play some courses that we hadn't ever played before and so this lead me to Old Union. this place was super nice with everything in great shape. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were all really excellent. This place is tough to play with tight fairways and fast greens. Really enjoyed it and will for sure come back again.

Fairways need work but greens were in great shape. Layout requires you to use pretty much every club in your bag which makes you think. If they get the fairways in top notch shape they could easily charge double what they charge now.

Old Union

Wonderful course and layout. The only issue I had was with the greens. Some were cut and some were not. The morning dew was collected so much that my putts were kicking up 6 in rooster tails. Cost me a good round. Other than that, wonderful course, wonderful staff, and great course. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Great course

This course was in pretty good condition. Although, the roighf was extremely high and there are a lot of weeds around but the greens were spectacular. I will definitely come here again

Good but challenging

Course had a little of everything. Good greens, plenty of sand and water hazards Hard to know where to layup on certain holes.
