A decent 9 holes
Nothing great about these 9-holes but nothing bad either. Definitely some interesting hole configurations.
6 and 7 are tough
My least favorite of the 3 nine-hole courses at Fort Benning, but still a good course. 6 and 7 are pretty tough with a lot of water involved with both.
Very fun course to play. Love the unique bench at the dog leg left 7. Can't wait until it opens again.
Don't waste your money
This should not even be called a golf course. Much of it is no more than a vacant field. The conditions are so bad it is hard to explain. The greens actually have mole cricket mounds all over them. The areas that are mowed have clumps of grass clippings. What a disappointment and waste of money I experienced this morning.
I played this course again expecting the conditions to be improved with the great weather lately. I was disappointed. The course looked neglected and almost like a course in the early stages of abandonment. The fairways were full of weeds and un mowed. The greens were covered with weed pockets and very bumpy. There is hardpan everywhere, even in the middle of fairways. It is hard to image this is a rated course.
This course has a great layout, and is fun to play. However, there are definite signs of neglect. The greens are not in good condition and do not roll true. The fringes are unkept. The tee boxes are rough, uneven, and hairy. The fairways are nothing special, and you need to play "winter rules" year-round. There is great potential here, but the conditions can ruin your round.
