Beautiful course on a beautiful lake.

Reminded me of The Lanier Island course. It was in great shape. Wide fairways and large multitiered greens. Great value.

Great views on the back 9

We played this course the Friday after Thanksgiving and it was cart path only due to rain early Thanksgiving day. Usually, I'd rather walk the course when it's cart path only but that's not really an option on this course.

The primary rough is very difficult. Balls nestle down into it so much that if you are 4' off the fairway, you might not find your ball. Keep careful watch of where it goes in. Unless you are standing on top of it, you won't see it. Each player lost at least 1 ball this way.

Rough might not have been not cut lower due to moisture, but rough looked like it wasn't cut even earlier in the week. This and the wet fairways added quite a bit of distance to the 6400 yard blue tee boxes. The next lower tee is 5900 yards and would seem too short for most intermediate golfers but I would certainly consider it next time as the course easily plays 200 yards further than the card states when it's wet and the rough is as difficult as it was.

The back 9 of this course is very picturesque along the lake with many nice views. Makes the course worthwhile for the drive out to it.

Amenities are good in the clubhouse even w COVID restrictions in place.

Arrowhead Pointe

Great golf course and great layout condition most of the time is great. Only problem is slow greens they are always slow someone wrote a review that they were 10 on the stump they have never been a 10 they are usually 7-8
I would play here a lot more if they ran at least 10.
The staff is great and course is great only negative is slow greens
Course has great views on the lake you will not be disappointed.

So quiet

Arrowhead Point is one of my favorite golf courses. Location. Location. Location. On an undeveloped lake. Well away from anything commercial. So quiet and relaxing. Never crowded. Course is well maintained. It is a Georgia State Park course. So what you get versus what you pay makes this a very high value golf experiance.

We always enjoy playing at Arrowhead. The course is beautiful and was in really good condition. It's definitely challenging but definitely worth it.

LOVE this course!

Arrowhead Point IS the best course for the money. It is sooooo gorgeous, especially the back 9. Everything is just the way you want it...manicured tee boxes, groomed and well kept bunkers, smooth curbed concrete cart paths, immaculate fairways, forgiving course layout, perfect “carpet like” greens that are unblemished and just challenging enough. Yardage is marked with inground granite markers as well as the cart paths, the rough is wall to wall Bermuda and kept deep and thick enough to keep your ball from going out of bounds but not so deep that it disappears the moment it stops. The best treat of the day is arriving at the 12th green and taking in the envious views of Lake Russell from the varied course elevations for the next 5 holes. Simply put..well worth the trip (for me, 50 minutes) for some of the best golf around.

Georgia State Park Treasure

All I can say is WOW! Wasn't sure what to expect as we were looking for a golf stop on our way to a business trade show. After finding this course we will make this an annual stop. The course was fantastic, and the back nine was picturesque with several holes along the lake. The greens were in great shape, fairways were awesome. Have to say, the rough was a little higher than we are used to - which made hunting for an errant shot a little rough.. Pun intended! Very challenging yet fair. Played the Blue tees and it was a great test.

Great Course - Great Condition - rough IS a little high in places

Folks that live near Arrowhead Pointe are very lucky. Exceptional course with great views and a lot of fun holes. Had a group that stayed on site in cabins. They're nice, not great but you're there in the middle of nowhere for the golf. Have been here a number of times and this time the rough as people have said is a bit long in places. How can I say that,? We didn't lose any balls but over 2 days of play while searching for our balls we found over 12 balls in the rough.. almost had to step on the ball to find.

If you're out near here..give it a play.. Suggest Golfnow for the tee times..better rate was found there than us pre-booking because we were in cabins.
