Sorry we are not Augusta National... our course was built in 1937 and our revitalization plan has our course in solid shape. We don't agree with your assessment and have reported your comment due to "trolling".

If you would like a refund, please contact myself at 912-238-7100 and ask for Paul Johnson, Certified PGA professional.

Just a great day...

I love MC because Paul and Cameron are great people. They treat me well everytime I play. First I was a super at a 9 hole executive course in Florida with very little budget and labor like MC, and it's a struggle. I can play tee to green all the time. Great course to work on your game. Least MC has grass on the greens not like some in the area. 195 yard par 3 with a quarter size green not so easy. Great mix of dog legs left and rights. If your struggling with your game, great course to go to. Pace of play......outstanding. Thanks to the retirees to give up their time for the say to assist in some course maintenance. You dont have to go pay 100 bucks to have a great time playing golf.

Great value -fun course

First off, trust the gps. It IS amongst the paper mill. Second, it’s not a class A course. . The greens aren’t smooth and the fairway is rough.
BUT. The people were friendly, the pace was great, the value is awesome and my husband and I had a blast !! We would definitely go again if we were in the area.

You are absolutely right with GPS. The course was built in 1937 when nothing was around us. Now we are in the middle of everything.

Appreciate the compliments!

Poor conditions

Nine hole course that is in the middle of an industrial park. The grass hadn’t been cut in a week. Patches of heavy grass in the middle of the fairways. Greens extremely slow. Also hadn’t been cut in days. Don’t waste your time or money.

Sorry about the course conditions. Our maintenance staff priority was the installation of a new enlarged putting green and several basic tasks were pushed aside. We are back with conditioning so give us a try.

Dear Anonymous,

Thanks for playing our course on Monday. I was curious the specific issues with:
* Friendliness of staff
* Amenities
* Conditions

Would like to know what steps we could take as a course to improve. Thanks for you constructive criticism.

More bang than you’d expect

I’m a single digit player and this course intrigues me. The blue tees are difficult and it makes for a competitive round. It’s cheap, the greens are in great shape, the fairways are tight, and the bunkers are well kept. Can’t beat it for the money.

Great Bargain Course

This is a great course for the price. The landscaping was well maintained on all holes and the greens were well taken care of. This is a great course to play when you are working out kinks in your game for both irons and driver. It’s not going to play like a course that costs $80 a round, but it plays much better than the low price it is.

Andy6813111,

Thanks for the 4 Star Review. The course conditioning was weak in February since the course experienced a 14-week wet season during the Winter. If you come out now (June 21), the course is in GREAT SHAPE. Thanks for the support!

Nice course great vale

Probably can't get a better value. If yo are looking for all the bells and whistle's this may not be the course for you. However if you just want to get out and play a round it works out great. Of note you my want to cal to check directions as our GPS got us into the international paper factory.

Good practice course

Decent course for practice, holes are pretty straightforward compared with other courses, for value great spot to work on your game and not feel crowded on the course. Plays fast which is fine when it’s mid summer in GA.

Two recommendations; 1. Change the flag color on the holes, very hard to locate flags in morning with sun angle. 2. Last few holes greens need some divot repair but understandable with weather and upkeep that it’s a challenge.

Good course for the money

This is not a championship caliber course and not advertised as one. Simple 9 hole course to let you enjoy working on your game or get away for a few hours and play golf. I would recommend this course

I appreciate the review. We are in desperate need of rain, which has affected course conditioning. But you are right, great place to work on your game after work.

Early winter round ok

Greens are good. Fairways are getting a little thin because we’ve had the first frost. Likely won’t get any new grass for a couple months. For the money it’s a good place to work on your game.

Played here several times this year. The course was a little wet in spots due to recent rains but greens were in good shape. This is a great layout to work on your game. Great value for the money.
