Course is in good shape for this time of year. Greens are in great shape and fairways are coming in nicely. I play this course about once a month when traveling on business. Excellent course for the money!

One of the best kept golf secrets in the State of Georgia. I also enjoyed it because there were only 5 people on the course when my threesome played. Finished in 2 and 1/2 hrs.
This is the only course I have played where on the first time playing the course I broke 90 (Shot an 83 with 2 birdies). Would highly recommend this course to any level of player.
Fair but challenging course!
