Great course for the money. Challenging, with tricky greens above what’s expected for a small town course. Always well kept, friendly staff, and a very fun all around course.

Awful experience. Booked 1 week in advance for my son and I. Made it through 6 holes before it started raining. We parked under a shelter and waited for 30 minutes. Still raining heavily, course soaking wet. Went to pro shop and informed them we made it through 6. I asked for a 9 hole raincheck. I was informed they do not give those. When asked why, i was told i should have known it was raining. Understood if i walked in, but this was booked a week in advance. No signs saying no rainchecks. Apparently, psychics are welcome....

So everything was great except for the grass.

The greens were fine, the fairways played like the rough, and the roughs were horrible to play out of.

The course needs some work. The greens are not in very good shape at this point. The layout is average. Even though I booked a tee time on GolfNow they do not accept tee times so it is more of a first come first serve. Thankfully the cost to play was pretty low. Not much of a clubhouse and no real other amenities.

I decided to play this course based on the reviews I read. I'm pretty sure I must have been reading the reviews of a different course because none of the good things I read were not apparent to me at all. The greens and fairways were in poor condition, the signage was in awful shape, the lady in the pro shop was not overly friendly either. I travel for work and decided to take a chance on this course...big mistake.

No grass to speak of and lightening fast greens.

I want to give this course another shot in the Summer after some good rain.

It is a narrow course with lots of woods. I really enjoyed the elevation and the way they designed the course to take advantage of the natural lay of the land. #3 was my favorite - a par 3 with the hole well below the elevated tee box.

Lots of up & down hill tee to green/fairway approaches.

The most friendly staff of any course I have played. You better havea good score before reaching 17 and 18th holes. Both are par 5 but be ready to get double par. Basicly neither has a fairway. There is one but the ball is impossible to get there and stay.

I was vacationing in GA and found this gem on GolfNow.com. For the money paid it was a fantastic experience. The lady I had the pleasure of meeting in the pro shop was one of the friendliest people I have met. I would absolutely play this course again if in the area. Very enjoyable!

I've lived in the area about 8 years and Jonesco is looking as good as I've ever seen it look. They are still doing a lot of work in a few places, but you can tell they are trying their best. If you gave up on them in the past, give them another try.

The course is in pretty good condition. Hole #10 wasn't all that great but it's never been that good because of the creek that runs through the fairway. Also the staff needs to be more educated on the golf now tee time purchases. They lady in the golf shop tried to charge us more then what it was supposed to cost.

This course isn't Augusta National, but it doesn't have to be. It's a really fun course. The grass in the fairway is good. If you get out of the fairway you can get into some hard ground, but the fairways are all in pretty good shape. The greens had been punched recently so they were not in good shape, but other times I've been here, they have been in great shape. And the course has a really fun layout and is quiet and relaxing. And for $10 you can't beat it.

The course looks better then Ive ever seen it.I remember when the ground was half hard clay before. Now there is a lot more grass which is nice. My only complaint really is that the greens are as hard as concrete, so forget about spin. You have to hit short and roll on. The greens were nice and green though if I had to say something postive about them. One concern I might would have is that haven't aerate the greens yet, so come summer time they may turn brown because of the lack of moisture. For $10 you can't beat that deal though!

My wife and I played on a Saturday morning about 0930. We were behind several groups. The first foursome let us play through on hole #2, the next on hole #5, and the third on hole #7. Even with short waits to play through, she and I finished in about 2 hrs, 20 minutes. All the groups were very gracious and friendly about letting us play through. Fairways are...fair. Greens are in good shape. Finally, the price was right at $20/person riding on a Saturday morning
