Great Looking Course!

Nice layout with a couple of holes that were gimmicky forcing you to make some accurate shots. The greens were slick which I couldn’t get use too leading to a high number, no fault of the course. The fairways and greens were manicured nicely. I believe you would have to play this track several times to enjoy it. I only interacted with a couple of the staff and they were friendly. Overall the course was in great shape and I will play here again.

Awesome!

I play a lot of golf...excellent experience. I am the member of a private club and have played over 50 courses in GA....this is one of the best! The greens I just couldn’t figure out...don’t think that is the courses fault but I just couldn’t get the speed and break (lack thereof on most holes) dialed in. Definitely worth the drive and price! If it wasn’t an hour and a half away, I could play this track a lot more!! It is a must play! You will have a blast!

Course was in great shape!

Other than a few wet spots, the course was in great shape. Beverage cart came around three (3) times and on a hot-hot day that was great. Clubhouse was friendly and efficient. Carts were cleaned and sanitized before they went out. Greens were lightning fast. Overall, it was a fun and challenging day!

Bring your best or it’s work.

Hilly, tough, fair, but beware the first time you play it it’s won’t be pretty. It would be a huge help to play with someone that can tell you where to hit it. Carts have GPS but that’s not what you need help with. Multiple blind shots. Arnie made a masterpiece. Greens are spectacular and treacherous. It’s a drive for almost everyone, but do it!

Excellent Course

Best greens I've putted on this year. Sand bunkers uniformly good as well. My only complaint is that there are two tricked up doglegs, one on the front one on the back. Arnie must have run out of real estate.

Great Layout!

Great layout and a hidden gem from Arnold Palmer designs. Don’t miss this place. You’ll use every club in the bag. Choose the right tees for your ability and you’ll have a blast. Pace of play was slow on Monday afternoon.
