A trip to the IDGC is an awesome and memorable trip but heading north to Charlotte via Stoney Hill makes the trip Epic. But not everyone has the time, which is too bad.

I just found out that I’m headed near Appling, Ga and will get the chance to stop by the IDGC. Could anyone that’s played the courses make a recommendation as to which of the 3 courses to play if you’ve only got time for one?

All of them are great. Which you'd enjoy most depends on your personal preferences and skill level.

IMO:
Headrick will probably be the best suited to Intermediate players. I thought it was the most fun of them.
Jackson is the most challenging, and might be more enjoyable for Advanced players.
Warner (IIRC), might have had the most elevation of them.

Bogey nailed it.

Jackson course is pretty big; if you've only got time for 1 course, you might not have time for it.

The good news is that, no matter which course you choose, it'll be good.

Jackson is the best. This has the most 'special' feel to it.

Steady Ed is the most fun and has the best variety.

Warner/ 'the other course' isn't anything special. If you've played a wooded/semi-tough course before, you've essentially played this course.

Even if you only have time to play one course, find an extra 90 minutes to play both Jackson and Steady Ed. You'd regret being here and only playing one.

I may be able to squeeze two in. I’m a rec level player so I was maybe going to try to get Steady Ed and Warner. I’m not very good and Jackson seems maybe a little daunting.

Personally, Warner is my favorite course there. Ed is great and all but super rustic. We skipped Jackson while we were there and played Ed and Warner. Warner was pretty epic in my opinion. But I like wooded tech courses with massive elevation changes. (We would have played Jackson if we had more time in the area and still might play it on a future trip)

Based on this, Jackson's definitely the one you should skip this trip.

What makes it special is how well the fairways are designed so that advanced players have to hit landing zones to score well. For distance challenged players, it just requires more shots and plays more "connect the dots, which makes it more interesting for advanced players, but less interesting to rec level players.

Plus, if time's a consideration, chances of completing 36 holes is much better playing Headrick and Warner.

Enjoy!

I found Warner to be difficult but I had played Jackson and Hendrick both the day before while on an 11 day DG road trip. I was exhausted with bad hips. Warner has tons of elevation, Jackson is a rather easy walk.

Well, I went to the IDGC but I only got to play Steady Ed because Warner was closed. It was a fun round.
