This course is a must play for anyone who loves to play golf. If you consider yourself a good putter, you should score well. The greens are very fast--and true! The course is in great shape. Customer service is a priority. The clubhouse staff, the starter, and maintenance employees are first class. I can't wait to return.

Greens are in good shape. The rest of the course is in terrible condition. Pretty much a dog track or should I say Dawg track! I would choose to play elsewhere when in the area.

I have played this course twice with my son, a student at UGA. It has been very quiet on both occasions, almost no one was playing. The course is fairly challenging, especially the 12th hole! The greens are in decent shape. I love the bulldogs at the tee box! There are many specimen trees and nice plantings along the course.... More

The course layout was redone a few years ago by Davis Love design. Greens are severely undulated and being bent grass are very quick. Course has hills and some blind shots. It was one of the highest scored courses in relation to par on the Web.com Tour. Beautiful in the Spring around Masters time. A great course in North Georgia.

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.

This is definitely one of the nicest golf courses in the area. If you've got the $, check it out. The range and putting/chipping greens are great.

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
