Love this course

I love playing Gordon Lakes. This has to be one of the best courses in the Department Of Defense. Fairways and greens are in great shape and the 7:45 Saturday shotgun start gets everyone out and not stacking up at the 1st tee box. Didn't have much of a wait if any on some holes and we were done by noon. When you finish your round, you have to visit the ladies in the snack bar. Without a doubt the best bacon mushroom swiss burger I have ever had, and it comes with thick cut steak house fries. I get one every time I'm there.

Marshals or lack of!

I am a member and DID play 3-4 rounds a week. Unfortunately I have not been able to complete a round my last 3 times out. Hackers are allowed to use courses as driving range. Hackers that have no idea what the unspoken rules of golf are. This is a continuous problem and there is no one (marshals) on the courses to police the problem.

Overall rating is good n satisfactory except the fairway condition. Fairway is a bit wet n hard (w/o grass)so it was inconvenient to play. But green condition was very good n fast. I 'd like to recommend this course to other people.

Play this course if you get the chance

Gordon Lakes is a RTJ course that is as good or better than as any upscale public course you'll ever play. Don't pass up a chance to play this course.

Beautiful layout

Being from NC , playing this course made me think of the Sandhills / Pinehurst area of NC. The course meanders through some beautiful pine forest, and while essentially flat, does manage a few interesting elevation changes. The course seems to fit perfectly in with the terrain. One thing that the maintenance crew has done here is to remove a tremendous amount of undergrowth in the forest. This makes the course much more playable should you miss the fairway, and improves pace of play. The course has three nines that all play around a lake which makes for some very beautiful and challenging course.....including a beautiful island green Par 3. Don't miss if you are in Augusta.

Has three nines, which gives you a different challenge on each nine.

The fairways allowed the ball to sit up and the greens rolled true; very receptive to approach shots.

Gordon Lakes is a very challenging course.

The course was in excellent conditions from tee to greens.

The greens was running right about 11.

Nice club house and pro shop.

Friendly staff.

This has got to be the best golf course in Army, if not DOD. I think there is no semi private course in the Augusta area that can equal Fort Gordon

OUTSTANDING course...best shape of any course in Augusta area except for Augusta National and Sage Vealley...but those courses are extremely difficult for average Joe to get on, if ever.

Fort Gordon has improved tremendously over the past 5 years...simply a great course with a great staff that cares about it AND the customer.

Masters Week

This course is on a military base and was somewhat difficult to find due to lack of signage for the 1st timer. I was surprised to see that the grass was still brown at this time of the year.

Great golf stop...Very well maintained

Make sure to arrive early. The course is inside the Fort Gordon Military base and you will need to apply for a pass. Have your I'D,drivers license, vehicle reg,and insurance card ready and you will breeze thru the check point. Don'tlet this stop you from playing this gem its worth twice what they charge. Very friendly staff , Enjoy this one I certainly did.

Nice place to play a round..

My second time playing here...the course is a great challenge. Greens roll true and fast. That took some getting used to. Cost myself some strokes not being prepared for that.. It's an awesome layout and the course was in great shape. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fun, challenging round of golf..
