Fun little 9 holes

Pros: New concrete tee pads.
Easy to navigate.
Good mix of shots.
Cons: If ball fields are being used there can be cars near one or two holes.
Short. (Hole 6 is a par 2, 140ft.!!!)
Long walk from hole 9 back to parking lot.
(Hopefully 9 more holes will be in the future!)
Other Thoughts: Just a fun little church course that offers a few opened holes then some wooded holes to mix things up. Lots of potential for the future. Good for beginners as there's not a whole lot of trouble to get into.

Best 9-hole course to date

Pros: Best 9-hole course I've played to date. Very good-looking, well-maintained course.

Though initially intimidated, starting with two long holes is a good idea: rip it early and get that out of your system.

Thereafter, you've got to play with strategy versus abandon: avoiding OB along left fairway (no. 3), uphill with mando dogleg (no. 4), downhill with mando dogleg (no. 5), into or in the woods (nos. 6-8) that get tighter and longer, out of a grove of trees into a wide-open green (no. 9).

Long tee pads with decorative, swirl pattern in relief. New tee pad signs with perfect information.

I don't mind the footbridge from 9 to 2. Just be aware of any players on 1 & 2.
Cons: Current construction in no. 1 fairway makes it muddy.

Thorny bushes in deep rough, and anthills all over. Will be a real danger in warm months. If your disc lands on an anthill, the ants will get on it and bite you later. Be aware, check and wipe your discs.
Other Thoughts: I love this course. Will play it often when visiting GA. I hope it stays around. In a park with baseball fields, walking paths, a pond, open fields (for soccer, football, etc.), picnic shelters, etc. On private church land. Church asking for donations to continue.

Play two discs to play 18 holes. By playing holes twice, you will learn the course faster and improve on this course (any 9-hole course) quicker. Which is very encouraging.

Has tee signs

Natural tees were flat and fair to drive from

Good mix of open/wooded fairways with doglegs, mandos, and elevations

Had whole course to myself on a Saturday evening

Easy to navigate


Free parking at multiple locations

Porta potty
Long walk from hole #9 basket to parking lot

Nasty overgrowth along stream on hole #1 fairway
Other Thoughts:
This is a nice addition to the Henry County area that serves as a good warm-up for nearby JP Moseley Park. This course is pretty impressive for a 9 hole course on church property. Some of the pars may be little on the soft side but should be perfect for the rec player. Nice variation in pars, elevations, fairways, and mandos should make this fun to play. I like shooting around the mando poles on holes 4&5 as that adds some difficulty to the course. I'm not sure about the box truck on hole #7 but it doesn't seem to have moved since the pic was taken years ago. There's a lot of land here to make it 18 holes but it's pretty good as it is for a quick round.

Pros: Nice brand new baskets.
Some good length to this course, 400s, 500s, uphills, downhills. A good mix of straight, lefts, and rights playing the OBs around the ball fields. Open in the front leads to some wood holes in the back 4 holes.
The course puts you away from the main walking area, avoiding pedestrians nicely.
Good signs on each hole.
Generally good flow between holes.
Cons: Biggest problem is that hole 9 leaves off away from anything. To get back to your car, you need to walk through the path in the woods and then back the entire length of hole 2 and hole 1.
Without an over all course map, finding a couple of the tees can be a little tricky (hole 6 is in the woods if you follow along the ball field fence & hole 7 is further up the path towards the house)
Other Thoughts: Good local course to get out on.

Park in the gravel lot after turning at the light. Go straight through the gate down the car path towards the white sign and the single tree for hole 1.

Doesn't play around the church building, but around the park beside the church (church property?)

Certainly a fun course, much better than excepted for a 9hole church course.
