This is one of those out of the way gems with dirt cheap rates you read about and hope to find some day. Stone Mountain Golf course is laid out on top of Greenstreet Mountain perfectly situated between Stone Mountain State Park and the mountains of the Blue Ridge Parkway. You won't believe their greens!
To get there from Sparta, follow 21 to just past Roaring Gap. Turn right on Oklahoma Road (Site of "Pain Hurt & Suffering" bike race and you'll know why. At the bottom turn left on John Frank Parkway and follow the signs. Or take scenic drive through park and turn right when you exit park. (1-2 miles to road to golf course). Don't trust me and go to www.StoneMountainClub.com and get good directions and current rates.
Be warned that when you see their rates, you'll expect a cow pasture. Don't let that hold you back. Guys, bring your wife. this course is good for 10 husband points even if she does not golf.
