Beautiful course that challenges your best shots. Long tee shots are required. Bring plenty of extra balls, if you miss the fairway, you are going to lose a few. This is an expensive course to play and unfortunately the staff doesn't always use best judgement in setting tee times and controlling flow on the course. Maybe try playing early morning... More

We took our 12 year old here and she loved it. Beautiful town and the history in it is great. A must see if you are at all interested in Civil War history.

General golf course is closed every time I try to make a reservation, needs to be open and available to play. Eagle package is overpriced, should be more reasonably priced for our group to go. Fall rated should start earlier for more play.

1st tee time out was booked as a five-some. Held up the entire course on every shot. Ruined the golfing experience for us. When we complained, the complaints were ignored. No one ever addressed them in any way. Very disappointing.

Items very expensive in this store. $1 tree items costing triple. But, guess if one needs something, they can get it.

By far one of the most picturesque golf courses one will ever play. It was BEAUTIFUL! Now for the suggestions. Number 1 Please get reflectors on the pins so players can get yardage from there Laser Link guns. Really they have been out since 1999 why don't you have them. It makes the walking from the 100, 150 markers unnecessary... More

Spent 3 days golfing and on three different courses. Not wait times and very friendly staff. Would consider renting a home for a week next time. This is a great place to take young golfers to learn and spend time with the families. Especially the East course

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.
