We played the Quarry Course and the Lakeside Course on a very hot day (there are 3 nine-hole courses). One objection is that there are no drinking water facilities on the course itself - bring your own water. The Quarry Course fairways were browned out due to the very hot and dry weather, but the greens were in good condition. The Lakeside 9 was in better shape. The course layout on both was very good. Suitable for golfers at all levels of skill. The staff was very friendly. Great Gorge is, unfortunately, well

over an hour away from our home, but the plus side to that is that the course was not at all crowded and the pace of play was therefore very good.

I played here a few times a couple of years ago and I remember the course being in much better shape. Today, you could tell it was not very well maintained. Some greens were very fast, some were very slow. Yellow, dried out grass all over, some soft fairways, and many instances of “ground under repair” (clearly some construction still going on). In fact, 2 holes had the sprinklers on WHILE we were playing and we had to play around them! And it was around 9am, not that early...

Overall, a rather disappointing experience. Courses in that area are usually worth the drive all the way out there, and while Great Gorge had some scenic views, it wasn’t worth it. I’d say save your money (and gas, if you’re not local) and play a local, county course. Most likely it’ll be in the same (if not better) condition than Great Gorge.. Hope the construction ends soon and this place turns around. It has potential.

Looks like they've been stingy on the maintenance. The fairways & rough are not in the best shape. Bunker sand is packed down & hard. At least the greens and the areas around the green are nice.

I was excited to see that Great George was open again. Played it for years before. After seeing website I was set for a great new course. The course is the same. Cart paths the same, awful. Was really expecting more but for a discounted rate I'm ok. Just wished they hadn't billed it as a great new course.

My hubby and I played yesterday, and we were so impressed with Great Gorge! We played Rail and Quarry....loved them both....looking forward to playing Lake the next time. Great value....and after our round, we went out on the patio and had a yummy drink and supper to finish the day! Tees, Fairways, greens....all in great shape. Very friendly staff all the way around. If it's your first time, go through the parking lot and continue to the bag drop at the pro shop. Then you can park your car. We WILL be back and bring our friends!

It’s unfortunate about the greens especially on quarry; lake is just a little better. Net net, tough course which is fine but the slant on the greens is completely ridiculous. They need to be redone. 3 greens we putt at the hole, uphill, ball stops and then rolls completely back down the hill off the greens. Many other greens you could not stop the ball near the hole. Just not reasonable. Won’t be back until fixed. It’s unfortunate as the design is nice and challenging
