I Truly enjoy playing the General, But the best time to play is twilight! Not having to dish out major cash for a day in mid sun. Instead relax don't be hurried and enjoy your game with the sun gently going down. I've played it where I have seen the deer almost like watching my game. (it's not good) to... More

The South Course is a nice challenge. Tight fairways and well placed hazzards. I prefer it to the General.

The General was a beautiful course, but their staff needs some training. Very snooty, gave the impression that they didn't want us there! Played the South course the next day (AWESOME service), hard to believe this the same organization. If we return have no desire to play the General again.

It was a lovely hilly wooded course that presents lots of opportunities to lose golf balls. Control is the key here!

What a fun course to play. Very much a target golf course with a few spectacular holes on the back nine. The back nine is by far the best. Would definitely play again. Price wasn't too bad for a higher end course either. 14 is a very unique hole that you can see 3 different states from the tee box... More

I hope this is the General Store. Their roast beef sandwich was the best I have ever eaten! And I'm old!

Scenic course with several unusual holes, tailored more for scenery as opposed to quality golf holes. Challenging with narrow fairways and thick rough. Fairways and greens okay, but turf and greens pretty average.

The course is is little quirky but some of the holes especially on the back nine are spectacular.

The General is a nice course, but the customer service is HORRIBLE!!!! It's obvious that they do not care about any repeat business!!! The manager there, Mike, is totally rude and when I asked to speak to his supervisor, I was told he did not have one, that he "runs" the resort. No wonder they are losing business!
