Staff was nice, course was challenging from the 1st hole. Since I live near Pittsburgh, playing these southern courses helps my appreciation for the game. It is a municipal course so expect less then perfect conditions. That being said, I really enjoyed the challenges of the 2nd shots and the roll of the greens. Great price for afternoon play.

I went golfing with my 14 year old son today (July 22nd). We showed up without a tee time and we were quickly accommodated with a start. We rented clubs. The clubs were above average quality a good enough for the day. We played the 18 holes pretty much alone. The course is in good shape and I a great... More

Me and my buddies went golfing at Bobby Jones and had the absolute worst golfing experience ever. After they told us we could golf in our group the bobby jones staff members decided while we in the middle of our golf game that our group was too big. We would have happily separated our group into two groups to accommodate... More

Played the British course and was very please with the condition for the price. Tees were in good shape, fairways were great to hit off of, and the greens were rolling true. Few greens had some spots that showed some wear and tear, but the course has a lot of play. The "some like it hot" special they offer during... More

After not having played this course for a couple of years, we were disapponted to see what has become of what used to be an enjoyable experience. After the management shakeup several years ago, there was an upsurge in the overall quality, but this seems to have been the result of the "new broom sweeping clean." The once comfortable general...

We had a tee time for 4 and there was a chance of rain. We were able to play approx. 7 holes and it started to sprinkle. As we played it rained much harder and we rushed to finish 9 and it also began to thunder and lightning. We asked for a rain check for 9 holes and were refused.... More

We played the American course and had a lot of fun and a really good time. The course is well prepared, people are friendly, if you start early in the morning, you can even walk it (we did it on a cart which was due to the heat a good idea). It's very affordable and I recommend to book your... More

This county course is in the best shape that it has been in the past 4 years, but still not very good. There are bald patches in the fairways and on some of the greens. The greens are a moderate speed and bumpy. For $52 (morning in season) there are far better courses in the area. The pro shop staff... More

The only good thing about this place is the greens, fairways are in poor shape,the rest of the place is terrible and the golf staff could care less about you as a person, just a number. Fairways suck, behind one tee book you can see they had just rimmed the tress back, and laying just off the cart path was... More
