Played here for the first time. Greens were in great shape but the fairways had a lot of disease or damage. Still, a beautiful course. I wouldn't play here without a discount offer.

Nice course built in the '60's. Small clubhouse has display of all of the Georgia golfers who've gone to the PGA.

Most of our group is from Florida and are not used to the hilly terrain. The fairways were plush, and the greens were smooth and fast. The green fees were reasonable and the facilities were nice. There was no beverage cart, but a small snack bar at the turn was fine.

I had the opportunity to play the course in a tournament, and was a bit disappointed to be honest. The course was in okay condition, nothing special. Like most courses in the south, winter-kill was visible In many areas and the greens were just fair. Because the greens are bent grass, fans were going every hole to keep them from... More

We were here for a tournament. This is a beautiful, well manicured golf course. Very challenging greens. Nice layout. Very friendly staff in the snack bar.

The staff is friendly and accommodating and the course was in excellent shape. Not being use to bent grass green, it took the front nine to adjust. If a putt missed was the... More

This is a great golf course, but have a problem with starting people on tenth tee. Have gone twice to play eighteen, when we have had to get a rain check because starter let multiple groups in front of us before we made the turn. I would schedule 5 hours for a round.

The University of Georgia course is one of the nicer golf courses you can play in the Athens area and you don't have to spend a fortune to do it. The course has a nice layout and the fairways and greens are usually in good shape. It presents some challenging shots while still being enjoyable for players of all skill... More
