Great Course - A Real Challenge with the Wind

Fun course nestled in the mountains of North GA. Course is in good shape for the most part. Course is very challenging when the wind is blowing. There are many blinds tee shots both uphill and downhill. The bentrass greens were running a little slow but were decent condition other than a few bad areas of greens here and there. Overall, a pretty, challenging and fun course.

As the course is nestled in the mountains, there are tons of up and down hills and elevation changes. The elevation changes adds to the challenge and beauty of the golf course. There is beautiful scenery everywhere, especially from the top points of the golf course along with majestic views and tons of awesome wildlife (deer, fawns, turkeys, hawks, etc.)

The cart we had, as well as the other cart in our group had very little power and could barely make it up the hills and going down the hills we had to be super careful as the brakes were worn out and we felt a little bit scared if the cart would stop on many of the steep downhill paths. The bunkers were in very bad condition with many having little to no sand and those that had sand had not been worked or raked in what appeared like a few weeks. No ball washing stations at all, so bring your own wet towel. Many of the fairways were VERY firm and in many spots very little grass so in lots of instances you were hitting off of hard packed dirt with very little grass.

Pace of play was great and four times during the round we saw a marshall/ranger driving around checking up on everyone and making sure everything was good. It is great to see a marshall out on the course helping keep the pace of play where it should be. Great job Lake Arrowhead!!!

A challenge

Course is in good shape for the most part. It is very challenging from the tips. There are a lot of blinds tee shots, so playing it for the first time can be a struggle. Greens were slow but were well kept other than a couple spots here and there. Overall, a good course and will make the trip back soon.

Nice course

Beautiful course nestled in the mountains of North GA. There are many holes with water hazards and landing spots so accuracy is a must! No ball washing stations so.bring some cleaning solution. Will return to play again!

Course is in great shape

Always a pleasure to play here. Course is in amazing shape right now. Only one green had a few issues, otherwise fairways and greens were in amazing condition. Carts could use a little more juice but that is a minor gripe. Beautiful scenery and all kinds of wildlife.

Great course for the balue

For only $35-45 during prime-time, you can’t find a better place to play golf. The course is in good shape, and is a different, but challenging layout. Greens are really big, and most are 2-3 tiered, so you have to hit good iron shots. Par 3s are fun here. Bentgrass greens that were a little on the slow end, but still true and rolled smooth. Would definitely go back... it’s just a hike from Metro Atlanta.

First of Many

Other than a little work to be done on traps and a few tee boxes course was great! Greens overall in good shape. Love the layout and that forces you to think about what clubs to use when teeing off and second shots. It always helps when pace of play is good, and it was. As well staff driving through and checking. Looking forward to making it my home course.
