I think it’s ok

Having played this course only twice, I’d say it’s pretty nice. The clubhouse could use a little work but not bad for state run course. $6 for 50 balls at the range. Can’t beat the price for 18 holes though....

Great Course

The Creek at Hard Labor is a lot of fun to play. Great layout and a fair test from the blue tees. Course is in great condition. Definitely worth playing if you're in the area.

Great Course!

I grew up playing this course and it is probably in the best shape it has been in a long time. Fairways and greens are cut well making for great surfaces to hit from. The roughs are being kept higher making for an overall difficult course if you don’t keep it in the fairway. Awesome experience, and definitely worth the money to play here.

Go PLAY the Creek

Overall best shape I’ve seen course in recent years. Tee boxes little thin but rest of course, fairways & greens in great shape. Grass cut defining fairways, even letting rough grow, which can be penalizing if playing from off fairway. Got a great deal on Golfnow, course not crowded, played in less than 4 hours. Cold water in coolers handy on a hot day. Highly recommend & impressed with overall condition.

Family Fun Day

Played with my kids for a family outing. Here are a few positives and negatives:
Positives:
1. Junior tees
2. Clean clubhouse
3. Ice readily available for coolers on carts
4. Greens were “friendly” for beginners
5. Had a good time with my family.

Negatives:
1. Water coolers on course were empty
2. The golf app that I use for yardage & scoring had the 1st tee as the 10th tee. If I remember correctly, The Creek flipped the front and back nines.

Greens a little rough

Seems like greens had bee aerated recently and were still very bumpy. Other than that course was fine.

The greens

The greens had been aerated but that's what has to be done. Overall the course was in great shape.

Greens yucky

It would have been nice to know greens were aerated and sanded as I came to practice putting!

aerated greens

Wish we had known the greens had just been aerated 4 days prior to playing the course. Also the course in general was not in the condition it needs to be. All other Georgia state courses I have played are in much better shape. Love the layout, but was disappointed in the course condition.

Great course at a excellent price point!

This a great course at a excellent price. If your out east of Atlanta well worth the drive. No doubt it’s not a push over course, and can challenge both the weekend golfer and the semipro.
The greens are in fantastic condition right now, yes this week they did sand the greens but expect them to be in above par condition in the next couple weeks.

Nice layout, some interesting holes.

Good course for the price. A little disappointed with front 9 greens, very bumpy. Back 9 greens were much better. Unusual that the green condition from the front to the back varied so much. Fairways were in good shape, some of the tee boxes below par. Overall, fun course for the price, will be back.

OK

The Fairways are Nice. The Greens are not up to par. The Holes dont sit level with the greens and are not well taken care of. But nice sceneries all around the course. Several opportunities to hit long balls and and play a nice iron game.
