Beautiful Mountain Golf Course

I played it early in the year so the course is just starting to green up. The course is normally in awesome shape in the summertime. The only draw back is it can get pricey during the summer months

Beautiful course poor greens

For the past three years our group of eight guys has traveled to Sky Valley to play. We love the course but the greens have never been good. When we call, someone in the pro shop always tells us the greens have been aerated, but are healed and in good shape. This year they had just verticut them and they were very bumpy. Not fun. We will not be back again! $60 is too much, for greens that are in sketchy condition.

Great and beautiful layout!

I've played this course several times, there are not many courses around our area that compare with the beauty of Sky Valley. The tees, fairways, and rough we're overseeded, and in great condition. The greens had recently been plugged and sanded, so they were very slow. When the greens come in, it's going to be a great place to play. We really enjoyed the round!

Mountain Views

I really enjoyed my round. Nice course with some surprises. Much more water (creeks, streams, & ponds) then I expected. Some local knowledge as to hole layout and landing areas would have lowered my score. 2nd round was much better

Frosty and Lonely

Winter golf... the fairways were still a bit green, but many had been recently aerated leaving little dirt plugs covering the ground. Better to play from the rough, which is what I do on a regular basis. Clear skies, but pretty chilly and breezy. Had to start on hole 2 because number 1 was still frozen even at noon. Finished on number 1 with ice in the shadows off the green. Lonely? I don't believe I have ever played a course where I was the ONLY player on the course all day. I may have been the only player so far that week. There were some course workers out on a couple holes.

Great course to play

I always enjoy playing this course and it is a well laid out course. Challenging and the condition is still better than most in the winter. Dress appropriately in layers and be prepared for changing weather conditions. The pro shop staff was very friendly and went out of his way to make me feel very welcome.

Winter golf

Course was in decent shape considering its January. Fairways were being aerated in spots but didn't affect play. Great course in season. Only con is course needs to realize people still play in winter and not lock the restrooms up and all trash bins were removed as well.

Mountain golf at it's finest

Golf course still had snow in places to enhance the views. Course layout is ok. Course had been punches in areas close to greens on front nine and all greens have had work done to prepare for spring

Best course for the money, ever!

Bent greens and fairways! Greens are super fast with many tough pin positions. Tight fairways. This is a players course. But if you are prepared to throttle back a little it is imminently fair and fun. Great temperatures in the summer, normally low 80’s. Leaves in the fall are spectacular.
You need to play this track only 90 miles north of Atlanta.

Greenest course all year

Wonderful course... greenest grass I've seen all year. Greens had a recent sanding, looked like a pin-stripe suit, but ran true. And no fire ant mounds!

Great mountain golf

The course was in great condition, greens were fast and fairways lush. Well worth the drive up from Atlanta.

This is a beautiful and challenging course

I picked the perfect time to give this course a try. Cool weather and the leaves were turning everything into a fall wonderland. I had read a review from a few weeks earlier that said the course was not in good enough condition for the price paid....I must say, au contraire! The layout is great and the beauty of the course is greater. The fairways were in fine condition and the greens couldn't have been more in shape...bent grass and plenty fast. Perhaps the gentleman who wrote the disparaging review ought to consider Golfnow next time he arranges a tee-time as he apparently paid twice as much as me. The only gripe I have is that at this time of year they have no starter and the proshop wasn't in synch with the online tee-time reservations. Fortunately, our threesome was able to go to the 10th tee to have a wide open course in front of us. I would recommend this course.

Course is in great condition but guests could repair their ball marks on the greens to make it even better.

great mountain course

Perfect Friday afternoon. Paired with a super nice couple. Had drinks and apps afterward. Staff is
extremely friendly and the course is in great shape.
It's fall and they have their hay bale tour set up. The community puts a ton of work into the caricatures.
Wonderful!

A beautiful fall round of golf

We have played Sky Valley many times. A wonderful Golf course and layout. Day was warm and sunny but course was very wet. Lost several balls in fairways. Sand traps were in very poor condition, but greens were excellent. It was still a fantastic day of golf.
