The friendliest golf course employees I have had the opportunity to meet on any golf course I have played. The sights are wonderful to experience. Makes you feel you are on vacation every time you play. Would recommend that this course should be experienced by everyone.

Quality Course

A quality course with a great lay-out, exceptional staff, and the best senior card offering of any course in the area. The scenery is beautiful. While a challenging course, it is fun and enjoyable to play.

Nice course with great views

Location on the lake is hard to beat. Beautiful views. Lots of water in play. Condition of tee boxes and fairways were pretty solid. Greens were rolling fast. With snacks and beverages included, I'd play it again in a heartbeat!

Excellent Course with great surroundings

A great looking course on the shores of Lake Lanier. This course is really tough and 3/4 of the holes incorporate the lake. This course compares favourably to the best courses I have played in the States, Scotland and continental Europe. Best holes are the v tough 14th and the stretch from 10-13 are also good. The only holes that aren't challenging or interesting are the 7th and 8th. Free food and drink are included with your green fee and it is of a good quality. Only negatives would be the greens as I am not a fan of the mini verde. but they are lightening and in great condition.

Great course

Very scenic golf course. Greens were rolling fast. I think they said they were the new mini-verdi bermuda greens. It would even be a more beautiful course when the fairways green back up in the spring. Free food and drink were included in your green fees. It does have alot of blind shots so I would buy the yardage book next time. Greens were hard, not many divots, maybe due to the season or just the type of greens.

Hope to play again when it gets warm

The course has a great view and every hole is well designed. A bit challenging but fun enough to think about how to play the hole. Only one thing that I was not satisfied with is its green condition. I cannot say it is poor but worse than the overall quality.

A shot makers course

This course is not about hitting the long ball, it is about hitting accurate tee and iron shots. But that is the easy part as the greens are fast but true. On some holes you will have to be on the right part of the green or you will most likely 3 putt. Great value as it includes food and range balls. Great staff.

Best greens in North Georgia

Always in great shape. Pin placement on certain greens can really test your ability to not 3 putt
