Memorial Day Morning

A great round tee'd off at 7:00am Memorial Day morning. We finished 18 in three hours with groups all around us playing with purpose. Always a great course for the rates you can find online.

Great time!

Caught a Hot Deal and decided to sneak in an afternoon round. Course relatively busy, so pace of play slower than I like, but still finished in good time. The course was in excellent shape and a fun challenge. I love the fast, undulating greens and the fairways were in good shape. Shot one of my best scores, so that helps my feelings.

Lane Creek

Course is in beautiful shape. Having a junior golf tourney Monday with practice rounds today, so it was set up a bit more difficult than normal, which was challenging. Amenities, clubhouse staff, all great.

Beautiful greens and fairways

If you play this make sure to pick up a book at the pro shop or you wont know the layout of the holes. It would be nice to have a picture on the score card or at the T-box.
The driving range is superb. I rated good on course conditions because some of the sand traps were shallow and or grainy, but they are improving every time I go. It would be nice to have more than one rake on the very large traps (hole #1)
It is possible to hit a house with a wild shot.DO NOT hit out of someone's yard. Pick it up and take the penalty. I don't think they mind picking up the ball, but property damage and divets in a neighbors yard hurts everyone's reputation.

Nice hidden gem - great value!

We picked this course as a warmup round before attending the gallery at the Master's Monday practice round. What a great find! The course has wonderful elevations and a great layout. While not exceptionally long, it was plenty of course off the blue tees for us (our group ranged from 9 to 17 in handicaps). Given the surge pricing for Masters week on all of the courses around Augusta, this was fantastic value for the layout. Conditioning could have been a bit better around the rough but the fairways and greens were very playable. I would recommend trying this track out if you have the chance.

Lane Creek Love

This is one of the courses I play at least 3-4 times per month. The greens are always in good shape, and roll true and fast. Many of the greens are tiered and require precise iron play to be on the right level. I love the variety of shots that this course allows you to be able to play. (Though on most of the shorter par 4's you can drive and pitch instead of laying back if you choose.) Nice doglegs on a few holes and is challenging no matter what tee box you use. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone within an hour drive of Athens, GA. The only downside is sometimes during the week they do not employ a starter and play can get backed up and take a little long. I have made it around this course in anywhere between 2 hours and 5 hours, depending on the days business.(This is the only reason I can't rate it 5 stars.) I would still recommend you come play it and see what its about!! Food wise I always eat the chicken salad sandwich they have but make sure to bring cash for food. As they do not have a credit card reader for food, but have to walk it over to the check in counter, which is a minor inconvenience.

Friendly staff, course in great shape.
Pace of play very slow (waited on every shot)
Bunkers were in good shape but some inconsiderate golfers don't know what the rakes are for

Great course and value

Some of the best greens in this area, rivaled only by the UGA golf course. Always in great shape, summer or winter. Friendly staff, always very helpful. Really, it's the best golf value in the area. Highly recommended.

Greens always good.

Play from the tips, otherwise you will think course is short. Greens are top notch in the area. Also constantly allows unpatrolled 5 somes out there which sucks to get stuck behind.

Fun course to play

Great layout fun of all levels of skilled golfers. Nice mix of short and long holes without a lot of water and few green side buckers that come in to play. Just a really fun course to play I have been playing here for years and will continue to.
