The greens were in excellent shape and the course layout is conducive to playing driver off the tee.

The was a birthday weekend round and my brother and I decided that we would play only the top 25 courses in Georgia and this far Cateechee is the Best. Your staff was friendly and the cart guys were great at service. Thank you and I will be back to play again.

Hidden Gem

Course is a tad out of way from Athens but worth every second and penny of the drive. Very challenging plays like a links style course. Highly recommend

For 70 dollars the green was just punched. Putting was a nightmare. Other than that, course was nice. The course to me is worth about 45 dollars.

Another great day at Cateechee. Course is always in great shape. Greens were fast today! Don’t get above the ball or you’ll guarantee a 3 putt.

Edenic

Although I can be a serious golfer, I love to play a course that has the level of aesthetic beauty that distracts me from the quality of my play. Other than the clubhouse and a crumbling barn off one of the fairways on the front nine, I didn't spot another man-made structure. Sweeping, undulating fairways combined with impeccably kept bunkers, greens, and fringes made for one of the most enjoyable rounds I have experienced in quite a while. If Twain had played this one, he wouldn't have considered golf a walk in the woods ruined.

Never disappoints:

Course was in excellent shape as always.
Selling lots on #10 and making it a par 3? I'd move the tee back a little farther to make it play more than 150 yards downhill.
Also build another tee on #17 and make it a par 6 to keep the course a par 72.

Great course however the course shut down after we had played four holes due to heavy rains and storms that came up. I would like to get a refund and reschedule another time to go and play the course. Great course for four holes!

Beautiful, Challenging course

This was the first time I have played Cateechee in several years. I now remember why I love the course and fun and challenging layout. I drove an hour and a half to play Cateechee and it was well worth the drive and the time.

The staff was very nice, friendly and accommodating. I love how the range balls and practice area balls are included in the greens fee price. The range and practice area is very nice and has everything you need to practice and work on your game. All the carts have GPS which is a huge help and benefit since there are many blind shots and challenging holes.

The course and surrounding area (especially driving between holes) is beautiful. The course routing takes you through hills, valleys, through woods, over streams, etc.

The greens were very nice (they had been airaited a couple weeks ago, but they are filling in very nicely. The greens were very fast. Also, the greens have tons of slopes, hills, undulations and subtle breaks. Overall, the greens are in fantastic condition and very challenging.

One of the top golf courses in the area and hard to beat. I highly recommend Cateechee.

Great course

I played here for the second time this spring. The course routing is beautiful, through hills and valleys with extreme elevations changes. The tees and fairways are growing in nicely though the greens were recently punched and it did affect putting somewhat. I got a great price on a hot deal through Golfnow but it appeared that they were still charging $70.00 for tee times and that's too much when they greens have been recently aerated. I've found that very few courses are willing to drop their rates for the few weeks each year that they aerate the course. When this course gets through the spring it will be worth every penny of the green fee. One covid-19 note: They put plastic rings in all of the cups so the balls don't fall all the way to the bottom of the cup. That way nobody has to touch the flagstick to remove their ball. The rings they use are too tall, almost to the level of the rim of the cup, keeping some putts out that would have fallen in. I understand the necessity of the ring during the pandemic but other courses I've played this spring have managed to use smaller devices which serve the same purpose but don't adversely affect your putts. Not a big deal but could be done better. Overall I love this course and the staff.

Excellent course

Excellent. Greens in excel shape. F/W is coming in nicely.
One of the top clubs in the area-hard to beat. 4 hr round for threesome.
They have taken good precaution for the COVID-19.
Only complaint-2nd time in a row they were out of chili for the hot dogs at the turn!
Will come back.

Greens in great shape

This course is well kept, staff are friendly, pace of play is usually fast. I used a monthly golfpass round so played for essentially free. Great practice facility. Range is free with round of golf. They made a change to the course recently that was negative. The owner decided to developed condos on the 10th fairway and changed a long and challenging par 4 into a short par 3. This was the number one handicap hole. I was my least favorite hold on the course but still hated to see them mess up the hole.

If you can putt fast true Greens this is the course for you. I don’t but still enjoyed the day with Southern Hospitality from staff all the way to members who welcomed us with smiles and fun.
