Lets start with the clubhouse, which I would say is the nicest I have seen. The bathroom itself was worth writing home about. Great view of the golf course from the clubhouse. The GPS system on the cart gives great advice for each hole and accurate distances. the carts even have a ball washer which I had never seen before.

the course itself was in great shape and alot of fun to play. Many elevation changes which make some holes easier and some much harder than you would think. I paid $11 on this day which was a steal. I would easily pay 3 to 4 times that to play it again.

this course would be a blast to play a best ball tournament as several holes tempt you hit over the beautiful Butternut Creek.

A long haul for me from the Atlanta area but very enjoyable. Everyone I encountered in Blairsville, from the guy at the Dollar General to the staff at the course were very friendly and helpful. You definitely get the feel of Southern Hospitality that you don't see in the Atlanta area. Great time all the way around.

Beautiful layout, incredible scenery, impecably maintained. Course is very fair and fun to play. Best carts i've ever rode in with easy to use GPS system. The 50'-100' changes in elevation are incredible. The clubhouse does leave a lot to be desired.Very highly recommended! T. Duhon 11/21/07

Excellent course, excellent staff. My first time with the in-cart GPS system. I recommend it highly. Not much needs to be improved with this course.

Right in the heart of Blairsville, Georgia, this mountain course is beautiful. It is well maintained, the greens are superb, fairways beautiful and the staff are always welcoming and friendly.

They are currently undergoing big renovations to the clubhouse area, with plans for a brand new one to go over the site of the old swimming pool and tennis courts. They just finished a new garage for all the BRAND NEW golf carts with big dashboards, comfy seats and GPS.

They have many tournaments throughout the year and everyone that plays at the course is friendly which makes it a good time when you show up.

This is a must play with a lot of diversity. Narrow and wide, uphill and down, over ponds and rivers. Enjoy!
