Love this course but the management is terrible. The old man running the place pretty much ruined our day at the course this weekend. He was very rude to my group and even interrogated us as to whether we paid to play or not after completing 7 or 8 holes and getting a cart and key from the clubhouse. His scratch tournament was more important to him than the PAYING customers that were trying to play and resulted in my group taking a rain check for the final 9 holes. After being insulted by his ignorance, neither I nor anyone else in my group will likely play there again. It was simply uncalled for and the kind of negativity that makes you not want to go back. So it's a great course but be prepared to be treated with no respect and rudeness if you ever go there.

This is not your average hackers course. Trouble in every direction and on just about every hole. The first hole is the number one handicap hole, that's just wrong. You can't miss the fairway on this course. Recommend playing from the front tees. The course is too tight for pleasurable play. The layout is very nice but it needs some modification to let the average golfer enjoy the experience.

Very nice golf course, has alot going for it. Only major kick in the teeth for me was the very rude older woman behind the counter, she treated the several people I was with as well as myself very angrily. Her answers were short with no kindness what-so-ever. Play this course if you can, but if she is behind the counter, walk out without another word said. Grayson County Golf Course has better customer service, even if it is a below par course. And thats what means more to me.

Greens were in really good shape. Enjoyed the layout, had some interesting holes. However, there were no range balls available to warm up with and basically no amenities to speak of. Club house was a trailer home. Price was good. I'd recommend it as a affordable place to play, just don't expect to be spoiled by the amenities.
