Again a very memorable outing!
Best greens in North Georgia!! Overall course in fantastic shape! The grounds crew does a excellent job! Well worth the price and the drive!
Keep up the good work!
Will be back!!
I’ll be a hit with my friends...
After I introduce this jewel to my friends they will love me even more! The course was perfect!
This is a beautiful course. With no recent rain the fairways were cut tight and they were dry which made clubs Heads bounce If you don’t make perfect contact with the ball. The greens are US Open fast. If you land below the flag in many cases the ball will role off the green. If land above the flag putting down hill is impossible, even the slightest tap of the putter sends the ball 20 feet past the hole. There was no sense in the greens being that fast. If they would fluff up the fairways just a little and slow the greens just a little it would make for a more enjoyable round. Save the us open setup for when you host the us open.
Fun Course but challenging
Greens had been sanded recently...but still were pretty fast. Course is in great shape. Even though we’ve been getting rain almost daily, it drains well...no wet spots and no cart path only holes. Pretty open driving holes but know your yardages to pins. Course favors more of a right to left ball flight off most tees...good short game is helpful here. Staff is friendly and we played at our own pace with no problems at all.
This is a beautiful course in impeccable condition. I made the hour drive because I heard so much about it and it did not disappoint. The greens were the fastest I have ever played. I was warned by the starter and warmed up on the practice green but it still took a few holes to get in a groove. I booked a hot deal and the value was there for a hot deal. I felt it was more then fair at the hot deal price point but I've played as nice for much less then the full rate posted. This is a great track with some elevation changes and blind shots. It might take a 2nd round to really score so you know the course. Expensive but worth it if your wallet can swing it.
Barnsley Gardens - July 19, 2020
The course was in beautiful shape. The greens are very fast. Short game is a necessity here. On Sunday afternoon, the course was not busy. Pace of play was ours to determine.
Great Condition and Challenge with Lots of Beauty
I have played Barnsley Resort several times. Every time I play, I always like even more the course. The course is always in great condition.
The practice area is first class. Range balls are included in the price of the greens fees. Very nice, large range with a separate chipping area.
The course was is excellent condition. Pace of play was exceptional. The course offers stunning views of the North Georgia mountains and features what I, as well as many others, consider the best collections of par 3's in all of Georgia. There is plenty of room off most of the tees. The greens are incredible. They are some of the quickest, most undulated greens I have ever played and the amazing greens simply add to the thrill of this awesome course. The bunkers are well kept and in great condition.
Barnsley Resort is a fantastic place to play. It is one of my favorite courses in all of Georgia.
Course was is very good shape. Greens a bit inconsistent but well groomed and rolled well. Pace of play was exceptional.
Beautiful course with great golf
Combination of setting, course conditions, pace of play and layout makes this a top choice. All staff were extremely friendly. Layout is tough but greens were slightly more forgiving than some other semi-private course I have played which was a nice plus.
