The player-friendly Blackstone Golf Course boasts a reputation of being an excellent course for families. The gently undulating landscape is approachable to beginners while still providing a fair amount of challenge. The rolling terrain requires accuracy but most holes allow for short irons if you're willing to risk hitting your ball into the treetops. There is a stream that meanders through the golf course, coming into play on a number of holes. It also crosses through Blackstone's driving range. Strategically placed bunkers are also scattered throughout. The greens are in excellent condition, providing great putting surfaces. Blackstone Golf Course has garnered a local following because of its playability, which is helped by three sets of tees, and extremely reasonable rates. It's an excellent location for a casual round.

Blackstone staff was so ooo friendly. I arrived early but the pro shop attendant girl allowed me to go ahead and start anyway.

Played with a guy from Va. had a very good time and pace of play was great.

This course will test a.ll of your skills.

Being from North Georgia originally I actually like the hills and valleys of this course. The fairways grass is beginning to grow i a bit, and in another month should be great with spring rains. The greens rolled true and are in great shape. I give the course an average rating at this time due to the fairways, but will definately play it again. The restaurant has a great hamburger and the staff is friendly. Take advantage of the golfnow hotdeals and play it...

Great course course conditions. Fairways are good. Greens in excellent shape in that they are fast and contoured. Numerous tees for all golfers. I have played Blackstone numerous times in my visits south and I have enjoyed every round.

Enjoyed the day at BLACKSTONE. As a high handicap women maybe not so good. Red tee boxes, as most courses, are small, not level and beat-up. A few holes just too long for me but the views are amazing and the greens in excellent shape. Also the pro shop had no women’s items - gloves, apparel, nada. I am used to these issues and as one thing my husband and I enjoy doing together will deal with it. Plus he really enjoyed it too. We will be back.
