Not for faint of heart

Fun course with massive elevation changes and some great scenery. Not for beginners or high handicappers due to some required long balls off the tee. Greens not in great shape but most of the course is being worked on. There are a few quirky holes, blind shots required but fair distances. VERY female friendly course. Great deal for the Hot Deal price.

Atrocious

Today was my friend’s 18th birthday, who’s new to golf, and he didn’t like the upscale feel of a course like Windermere so we were going to take him somewhere that has a more down to earth feel. My other friend and I came here a year ago and we had a great experience. The customer service was great, the food was amazing, and we loved every bit of it. This time the experience has the absolute worst I’ve had in golfing for the past 10 years. We were immediately treated to an incredibly rude man in the pro shop who scolded us for being early even though we intended to hit the range. After that we went to take carts to our cars to get our bags and take them to range. As we were pulling out the starter yelled at us telling us to not take carts to the parking lot. While we were at the range we looked behind us to see three older groups in carts at their cars which was incredibly frustrating. At the turn apparently there are two ways to get back to the clubhouse and onto the back 9. The way we took was the wrong one according to the started who again started to yell at us while we were doing nothing wrong. The incorrect path has no barrier to indicate not to take that way and when we told the starter that it was an honest mistake he aggressively leaned in and began yelling in my face. After that the ranger followed us for the next 3 holes to keep an eye on us. This golf course is clearly not meant for anyone under the age of 50 and according to the other reviews it’s meant for a particular group of people above their 50s. For a public course they were incredibly condescending and rude considering the condition the course is kept in. It’s one thing to be pretentious at a highly coveted establishment and it’s another to be so when the course is poorly taken care of.

Thank you for your review! We apologize that you didn't enjoy your experience with us. We do have a policy of no carts in the parking lot. However, when you are done playing you can take the cart to the lot to drop off your clubs. That is what the older group was doing. We're also sorry that our staff didn't leave a great impression on you. We would love the chance to speak to you more about your time with us. Please reach out to our General Manager, Scott Murphy, at smurphy@cityofsugarhill.com at your earliest convenience. Thank you again and we look forward to speaking with you!

Course Conditions

I have been playing this course for around 5 years now and over the years it seems like course maintenance is slacking. Greens are in very rough shape. Tee boxes are hard as rock and the fairways are more weeds than grass. This course has great potential however it needs to be taking care of.

Hoping for the comeback

Great staff that’s pouring their hearts into getting this longtime gem back into what this track can really be. New grounds people working to get this to be the comeback track of the year! Great staff,great layout! Couple tricky holes that makes you come back. Used pretty much all clubs in the bag. Fun challenging track.

Dissappointed

I used Golf Now discount for this round. If I had to pay full price I would have been very upset. What the course doesn't tell you is the greens had a fungus which made them difficult to putt. A few greens actually had good size open holes like they were dug out and not filled in.

Lot of work to do

Sugar Hill is currently in rough shape particularly, the greens. To their credit, lots of maintenance was being done, Sugar Hill is a nice course with some tricked up holes. I will be back but probably not until the end of May at the earliest to give the course a chance to heal.

Horrible

Tee boxes needed sanding bad, bunkers were hard clay, greens were the worst I’ve ever seen. Greens had debris all over them they didn’t even bother to blow them off. Do yourself a favor and play somewhere else. I will not ever play here again.

Needs Lots of Improvement

Greens are a disaster!! Bumpy due to hole replacements not done properly. No consistency in speed. Roughs are a bunch of overgrown weeds. Poa Annua is running rampant on this course
Dont waste your money!! I won’t. Too many other courses in the area for the same price, but in much better condition

Garbage

We played here today for the very first time, and it will be our last. This course has to be the worst condition I’ve ever seen. The “fairways” are completely covered in weeds, you cannot determine where the rough starts, and where it ends. The tee boxes are the exact same, solid as a rock too. On top of that the greens are TERRIBLE. Completely bald on almost every one of them. It looks like hail the size of soccer balls rained down and permanently dented every foot of the green. If that’s not bad enough for you, good luck dodging the debris all over the greens. We had an early morning tee time, and the first green we reached was absolutely covered in everything from tree limbs to pine needles. You had to spend 5 minutes just clearing a path before you could even putt.

The staff from the cart guy to the grill were rude as could be, it was very evident they did not want to be there.

Save your money and drive up the street to another course that actually has a maintenance crew.

Condition of course

I have played this course frequently and this is the first time I have to say the course condition is not great. This may be due to recent weather patterns but when I see that there is no attention paid to ensure there is feed containers on the carts it makes me wonder are the staff really concerned about the course? The greens were the worse I have seen in a number of years. This is the reason why we play this course previously. Hope they put the effort and investment back into the course to turn it around.

Aweful day!!!

Greens were terrible! Greens were aerigated. Greens had bald spots all over and were covered with sands. Aerigation was not mentioned when booked the tee- time, and they charged full price for it. Never going back.

This course was pretty nice

While it's no Augusta National, the fairways were nicely cut, and the tee boxes were soft. My only beef with this course was that the greens were mostly sand due to course maintenance. It was a good day to focus on chipping and iron shots. Well laid out with a lot of hilly challenges. Great views while I was there too. Would play again given the greens were in better shape which should be later in the season.
