Had a very good time playing here. Challenging Course, great staff, and very military friendly as military and police only pay the cart fee! Read many of the negative reviews and either the course has improved greatly, or they expected some PGA rated course. Will definitely be returning!

This course is on the pitiful side. But...it is clear that they are putting some money into the course to improve it. I just like to have a decent place to golf the balll around that is not too crowded and this course was exactly that. No frills. Just a simple muney.

Greens were covered in sand and being reseeded so they were practically unplayable, other then that the course was nice the staff were nice. The price was excellent paid 28 bucks for myself and gf to play I imagine by the end of the summer this course will be finished and a beauty.

Thought this was well maintained for a county course. Enjoyed the layout the fairways were good for this time of year. I considered it a steal of a deal with my golf now vip package.

This course is a Jones County course, and it's fine for what it is. They don't have the play to support a resort style of course.

Greens were good. Fairways were sparse.

Only nick is that a lot of the tee boxes are set in the danger zone for other golfers teeing off from other holes...

Great course for the money. Challenging, with tricky greens above what’s expected for a small town course. Always well kept, friendly staff, and a very fun all around course.

Awful experience. Booked 1 week in advance for my son and I. Made it through 6 holes before it started raining. We parked under a shelter and waited for 30 minutes. Still raining heavily, course soaking wet. Went to pro shop and informed them we made it through 6. I asked for a 9 hole raincheck. I was informed they do not give those. When asked why, i was told i should have known it was raining. Understood if i walked in, but this was booked a week in advance. No signs saying no rainchecks. Apparently, psychics are welcome....

So everything was great except for the grass.

The greens were fine, the fairways played like the rough, and the roughs were horrible to play out of.

The course needs some work. The greens are not in very good shape at this point. The layout is average. Even though I booked a tee time on GolfNow they do not accept tee times so it is more of a first come first serve. Thankfully the cost to play was pretty low. Not much of a clubhouse and no real other amenities.

I decided to play this course based on the reviews I read. I'm pretty sure I must have been reading the reviews of a different course because none of the good things I read were not apparent to me at all. The greens and fairways were in poor condition, the signage was in awful shape, the lady in the pro shop was not overly friendly either. I travel for work and decided to take a chance on this course...big mistake.

No grass to speak of and lightening fast greens.

I want to give this course another shot in the Summer after some good rain.

It is a narrow course with lots of woods. I really enjoyed the elevation and the way they designed the course to take advantage of the natural lay of the land. #3 was my favorite - a par 3 with the hole well below the elevated tee box.

Lots of up & down hill tee to green/fairway approaches.

The most friendly staff of any course I have played. You better havea good score before reaching 17 and 18th holes. Both are par 5 but be ready to get double par. Basicly neither has a fairway. There is one but the ball is impossible to get there and stay.

I was vacationing in GA and found this gem on GolfNow.com. For the money paid it was a fantastic experience. The lady I had the pleasure of meeting in the pro shop was one of the friendliest people I have met. I would absolutely play this course again if in the area. Very enjoyable!
