In winter condition

The greens are still in winter condition. They are making efforts to improve this course. A new pond added since last year. Some places they have been cleaning up the overgrown areas. It’s a hilly little course that’s good to play to keep your game sharp.

Great Course

This was a great deal. The only issue that we had with this course was that there were a few holes closed. They did make it up by letting us play holes 1-3 again. It is understandable because middle Georgia has had so much rain recently. Other than that it was a great course.

Great Value

Perfect place to practice/work on your game. The course is fair and has a nice combination of manageable and challenging holes. The greens are rather slow and take some getting used to, but play about the same for all 18. Only negative on the day is that the grass is cut a bit high which made finding some well-hit balls difficult. Will definitely be back to play again.

Things are going downhill

I play here about once a month and I've noticed over the past year things have started to slip. This time last year the course was beautiful, despite having much less rain. With the water we've had this season the course should be unbelievable, but what's unbelievable is the lack of maintenance it's receiving. The bahiagrass is ridiculous and makes finding balls in the rough nearly impossible, even just a couple of feet from the fairway. Seriously, you'd think they were preparing for the U.S. Open. As for the fairways themselves, you're lucky if you don't end up in a pile of clippings when you streak one down the middle. This tells me they're either not cutting often enough, or using the wrong type of mower. Either way, they obviously don't care to reward players for good tee shots. When you do reach the green it's like putting through cement, except for the crown greens which they apparently cross bred with Teflon. The bridge leading to the 12th hole feels like it's about to collapse. I hold my breath every time I cross it, praying I'm not the one that has to sue the city/county. The only reason I keep playing here is that I can get a Hot Deal from GolfNow for around $10. Today, however, I definitely overpaid.

Short course with small greens

Many short par 4s and 5s mange you feel like a long hitter, but the tiny greens make up for it. Several greens look like the surface of the moon, so we played a maximum of 2 putts to make up for the bouncing and zigzagging of the ball. Not worth $25 during the week.

People were really nice and encourages returning customers. Having a nice staff makes it worth returning. Course is still in dormant conditions due to cold and wet weather. First 7 greens were in bad shape, however it shaped up on the back. Will go back once the weather get's warms up. Was a good trip.

Old School Course in an old town setting

I like playing here it brings me back in time when things were simple. Very good course to hone in your skills. Greens are small but are true and fast.

Good value

Fun course to play. Greens are challenging. Several holes with lot of slope. As a woman golfer, I found the par 4s and 5s reachable.

Great for Price

This is the second time I've played here and the first in several years. With the hot deal I paid $16.33 after fees. The normal price seems to be around $25. For either price it is a great deal. The front nine was in great condition. Fairly easy fairway layout for the front nine but with difficult, non-flat, quick greens. The back nine seemed to be the opposite, with easier, flat, slower greens but with narrower fairways with frequent bends. As I stated, the condition of the front nine was VERY good, while the back nine was fairly good. Definitely recommend this to other beginners or experienced golfers. If you can drive the ball far, you will do well on this course, as some of the par 4's and 5's are VERY short. However, if you can't putt well, you will have a VERY difficult time on the front nine. Friendly, funny staff. Had a great time and will be returning frequently.

An Up and Down Round [And Side to Side] :-)

The course undulates up and down the fall line that runs through GA. Its shortness is offset by the difficulty in getting a level lie. The greens are small, inverted saucers - tough to get it to stick and challenging on up-and-downs. Several holes are blind or semi-blind. Balls will keep running, often into unmaintained areas. Greens not particularly smooth. Bunkers are dirt; fortunately not many. Birdhouses at 150 yards are the main markers; tough to see the 100-yard stones. Course does not return to pro shop after 9 holes, so stock up. Lots of coolers. Range consists of a half-dozen mats.

Factor in what you'll pay and you should have a fun round. Would play again.
