Good shape

Nice surroundings as it’s a state park. Overall course was in good shape. Greens were very fast. Pace of play was a touch slow at times but no prob for us as we were just enjoying the day. Reasonably priced.

A very enjoyable experience

I can't remember a round of golf where my buddy and I played 18 holes in about 3 hours. It was ideal and we will certainly return.

Greens sanded

Greens were recently sanded. Of course they don't tell you that when you book or check-in. A few of the greens are in really bad shape due to disease. Hard to putt on many. Overall this is a decent track that's challenging but not overwhelming. But needs some maintenance right now. Played 10/18/20.

Good day

Good course to play, overall in good shape, greens are good & you have grass to hit off of in fairway. Rough is penalizing, need to rake or blow grass clippings.

Beautiful layout

Bermuda greens and wiry Bermuda rough around the greens provided a lot of challenges. Mature course with a lot of overhanging trees likewise.

Elevation Changes on Every Hole

Beautiful mountainous course just east of Atlanta off I20. Course was in good shape despite being a rainy day. Greens ran medium fast and were bumpy. Beautiful cabin like pro shop with friendly staff. Did not use the driving range, so no comments there. The course could use many more directional signs to next tee boxes as I got lost several times. Some signs could have been placed better and would have been more effective. One sign said use stairs, where the bridge was blocked off. Howerver, you couldn’t see the stairs from the sign, so I drove down the cart path to the fairway until I turned around. Anyhow, I played three courses in three days, and every course could use more directional signage. Players should NEVER question the whereabouts of the next hole...NEVER!

A CHALLENGING GOLF COURSE

The Greens were in great condition as compared to last week which had lots of sand on the 1st 9.
I would give an excellent rating if the course maintenance had blown away chunks of cut grass on holes 16, 17 & 18. Overall this is a great golf course which we didn’t mind driving 75 mins to play here.

A Challenging Golf Course

We are impressed with Ken the pro shop manager who is very friendly and he went out of his way to explain and showed us the course when we told him that it was our first time there.
Indeed the course layout is very challenging ....it’s also hilly and with much topographical & elevational changes. Most of the greens’ condition are generally puttable in this time of the year. However, the grass in the rough needs to be cut shorter as balls get lost if you’re slightly out of the fairway.
Overall, it’s a very good course.

The fairway grass needs cutting.

The fairway grass was too tall... Can’t locate my ball.
Lost two balls on the fairway.
Glass clippings all over. Needs a better job.
The parking lot needs repair on paving.

The state has let this course fall to ruins.

I have played this Course many times in past few years. They blame the rain for the terrible condition of fairways and greens. What Rain! If you can find your ball in the middle of fairway, your lucky. The grass is just tall enough to swallow your ball. This use to be a beautiful course. No it’s in the top worst in GA.
I wouldn’t waste your money for a neglected course of this caliber.

Challenging for amateurs - lots of hills!

Loved the beauty of the course and the weather was perfect! Great practice green and driving range. Clean restrooms and pro shop.
