Played Kinderlou Forest 5/19/2016, it's a beautiful layout designed by Davis Love III Designs. Course was in excellent shape, true roll on greens. The course is LONG from the back tees (7,800 yards) but has four other sets of tees that make it playable for any length player. There are a few forced carries that demand solid tee shots, most...

We stopped in to play a quick 9 holes while traveling back to Ohio from Florida. An uoscale course, designed by Davis Love III. Generous fairways and if you play it from the tips it is 7700+ yards! Pace of play was great (less than 2 hours) and staff in the pro shop was super friendly and polite. Would like... More

For years I wanted to play Kinderlou, but never made the trek to Valdosta to play, because of its distance from St. Petersburg. This past weekend while visiting Atlanta, I drove 3 1/2 hours down to Valdosta. From the moment you arrive at the club house you can't help but notice how well manicured the grounds are. I parked my... More

I have played Kinderlou several times and have always found it in great shape. The challenging long course is the best in South Georgia. They can have the course setup for novice golfers and transform the grounds to a pro golfer setup. Well worth playing...

Friendly staff at the Pro Shop check in, appealing clubhouse and course. Cannot speak for practice facilities as we went straight out to play as there was a space. Course itself is excellent, an interesting and challenging layout. Fairways were wet - cart path only too - due to previous day's rain, so not much run, but this did not... More

The staff was very friendly from the moment we were at the course. The layout of the course is fair, but still challenging with some undulations and sand traps adding to the challenge. Being winter the grasses were dormant, but still played well.

We took 24 golfers back to Kinderlou Golf Course in April, 2014. We are glad, once again, that we did. As always the course was in outstanding condition, the personnel at the club greeted us like members. The restaurant took great care of us. The guys could not have been more pleased. Austin's Restaurant, connected to the Clarion offered very... More
