Very well maintained, greens excellent and consistent

Used to be not well known but is getting heavy play now, almost too crowded...took me 4 hrs, 20 minutes to play 18. Fairways and fringe around greens is coming in now and it will get even better. Greens are excellent, roll true, no bumps and greens are consistent throughout all 18 holes.

Course in great shape with excellent greens.

Always worth the drive out to Bishop, GA to play Lane Creek. Course was in fine shape and the greens are as good as any in north GA I have played. Rolled smooth with manageable speed. Especially nice collection of par 3s. Good variety of uphill and downhill holes as well as the design and length of the par 4s. Do not miss the green right in the sand traps on the downhill par 4 6th hole. It is an almost certain bogey and likely double or worse.

Strange Happenings

It’s was $31 and rightfully so.
Check-in was smooth.
No beverage course cart, which on a hot day is too bad.
Range is deplorable. Uneven ground, dry grass, and poor quality balls. I am beginning to think this is a Ma & Pa shop.
The course was in “OK” condition. The course is odd- a bunch of 325 yard par 4s, but to pump up the yardage, there was a 420 yard par 4, with a hidden pond in front of the green. Followed by a 425 yard uphill par 4.
I wouldn’t rush to play it again.

beautiful day for golf

Very nice course with very nice greens and fine pro shop. However the pace of play is slow, probably because of the fine low price attracks a lot of play and the degree of difficulty of several holes , backs up play

A “must play” course in the Athens, GA area

Good layout and excellent greens. Recent heavy rain made the fairways wet, but playable.

Great people

Really enjoy this course. The pro shop person was extremely trendily , as was the snack bar attendant. This course is well maintained. It's a very nice layout, with some very beautiful holes. Great value for your dollar and worth the drive.

very enjoyable course with some very challenging hole

this course is usually in very good shape, the staff is very friendly and helpful, some challenging holes and some easy holes, but the pace of play is slow maybe because they allow 5 somesums.

4 star

Gave one 4 star for course condition, and it was just because the greens were slow. I later found out that they usually roll great, but we played the day after it rained and it is getting close to off season anyway.
