Disappointing for a GA State park course

Have played this course a few times previously, and was a bit disappointed in the condition. The greens are overall in rough shape, and they are getting ready to aerate them very soon. I've always enjoyed the layout here, and at the other GA State Park courses I've played, so I hope it will recover soon. On a positive note, my playing partner and I were given coupons for a substantial discount on our next round because of the greens, so that was appreciated. I will come back back later in the season.

Poor Condotion

Tee boxes and green are in very poor condition. Needs lots of work. I did not see anyone doing any grounds work to make things better even thought the pro shop attendant said they are working to improve.

Suffering from weather

Tees are torn up and hard, course is very dry with hard fairways and greens are woefully devoid of grass due to dry weather and cool night temps. Several greens are nothing but dirt and all the greens are very hard, fast and bumpy. Should improve with rain and warmer temps. Obviously not being irrigated. Other courses have similar green problems.

Horrible Greens

The course track is great and the views are wonderful. The tee boxes and fairways are very nice, but the greens are horrible. The best way to describe the putting surfaces “greens “ would be to to use an expletive word! Honestly, all 18 round patches are suppose to be green. All kind of little grass patches and clumps. There is so much traffic on the putting surfaces you think you are on I-285 on a Monday morning ( pre coved-19)....it is fruitless to try to putt. I hate I burned my Avid Golfer pass ( $20) on this course but in retrospect my buddies paid $34 (golf now). Hope the other state courses putt surface not this poor.

Decent public course that needs work

Course layout is fun and challenging. Tee boxes and greens are in awful shape. Not worth the full rate until they fix those. Otherwise, a nice public state park course. No homes. Very peaceful.

Good, but greens were awful

Pretty self-explanatory. I really enjoyed the course, but the greens were sandy and hard as a rock. I know it’s the time of year where they’re prepping for the most popular part of the season, but these were baddddd. The rest of the course was nice and a couple of wholes were unique.

Really bad greens!

I have played this course a couple times previous, so I am familiar with it. I am not one to harshly criticize but these were some of the worst greens I have ever played on. I’m not saying this b/c I missed some short puts. I played with my usual foursome and all of us couldn’t believe the condition of the greens. The rest of the course was in good shape but it doesn’t matter if you are putting on a surface that was about as hard as concrete. Would suggest calling ahead and ask about the shape of the greens before booking a tee time. I know I will before I ever play this course again.

Needs a little work after such a wet winter.

Narrow and winding fairways demand accuracy. Thick trees require recovery shoots from rough. Tees and greens need work, several greens have grass deficiency and a couple of them are devoid of grass due to being covered in water causing disease and algae to take over. Many areas still muddy/wet from so much rain. Still a good course to play for the money.

State park golf

Course was in good shape considering the recent weather. The pace of play was good until the last e holes when the twosome I front of us got even slower.

Great Day on the Course

Everyone knows it has rained “cats & dogs” for several days now. So when our groups tee’ed off today we were expecting ponds on every hole. But because vs The Creek at Hard Labor is so well maintained there was only moderate water on the course - love playing this challenging course. Staff always professional and friendly, simply can’t say enough good things about this course and the people who run it.
