I am not a great golfer. When people ask me if I play golf I reply, "I have golf clubs, a glove, and a hat". I slice, I hook, but I can putt pretty straight.
The staff is very friendly and professional. This course is great for inexperienced golfers. No pressure. A very relaxed environment. A great place to learn the game of golf (second fairway is as wide as it is long). A great place to just have fun. The greens and fairways may not be perfect but who cares. If you want Sawgrass, go to Sawgrass.
Enjoy the day.
I have been to Green Hills for over 20 years;but, only golfing there for 11 years off and on. Considering how this course used to look and how the new owners are really trying to make much needed repairs I will be excited to see how the next 6 to 12 months turn out. Last summer was the 1st. summer that I could remember seeing the course green almost ALL summer.If you get realll bored golfing you can always "Catch & Release" from the ponds(nice size ones) or go for a swim in the summer in the great pool. I have been to some other Georgia courses that have been worse--so lighten up--give new owners some time. IT IS REALLY LOOKING LOTS BETTER!!!
From the time we pulled into the (dirt) parking lot until the time we left, this was the worst golf experience I've ever had. Rude little old men local golfers with no concept of etiquette, the food offerings at the turn consisted of truck stop pre-packaged sandwiches and a vending machine (seriously, not even a water fountain), the tee boxes were so hard the tee would break off in the dirt, greens were unkept and inconsistent, and there was no water to be found on back nine with 90 degree heat. I regret not having asked for my money back.
For those of you (see below) who read all of the reviews on this page, it is important to note that the new owners of this course are working hard to make the necessary improvements needed to create a wonderful course. I am excited to see this course evolve.
I enjoy taking my 7 year old son out on this course and working on the fundamentals of golf with him.
Stay tuned. A great course is about to emerge! Stuck up golf snobs not wanted...
I avoided this course like the plague for ten years after I played there a few times in the early 90s. This was back in the "Green Hills" days.
While this course is far from perfect now, the improvements have been tremendous. Now the fairways have grass, the greens are improving, and the overall experience is much better.
To be fair, this course has plenty more improvements to make, and I also think they shouldn't stay open during the renovations. The bottom line is that Creekside is moving away from the kind of course that has no redeaming qualities to one that will soon be a very nice place to play.
The tee boxes are unlevel, the fairways are pretty bad and the greens are often more dirt than grass. I saw one person write that this course is like Augusta National... but only if Augusta National had a (large) nuclear bomb dropped on it. Yeah, Green Hills is pretty cheap, but if you're under 24 you can pay your age at Sandy Creek golf course just south of Commerce (which is a much, MUCH nicer course). I don't mean to try and advertise for them (I'm not affiiliated with them at all) it's just a great deal, whereas you might as well tee up a ball in your backyard than play on Green Hills
SO I went to this dump yesterday and really was not sure I was even at a golf course. If it wasnt for people holding clubs, I would of thought it was just grass that needed to be cut. Basically, fairways and ruff look the same. The greens are the worst I have ever seen. The only good thing is they have beer. If it wasnt for that, my 18 holes of golf would have sucked. Stay away if you are looking for a course that is decent. This one is good for a golfer who doesnt care about anything.
The atomosphere at the club is exciting, anticipating the changes. Green Hills is now a "work in progress" as the new Creekside Country Club! The club will remain open during renovations and golfers should be pleased to see the continuous progress as Creekside moves forward.
Green Hills is a slice of apple pie after fighting through the onion soup fest that is Athens and North Oconee. The landscape is spectacular and if you make up a random club member number, you can play for free! If you are playing Green Hills as opposed to Jennings Mill, ACC, Sunset Hills, Eagles Nest, Lane Creek, Georgia Club, or UGA then you probably aren't much of a golfer anyways.
Driving the first green, then 4 putting. Really though, your playing the course and not expectations. what the hell did you expect for $27? Really a great course layout with not enough maintenance to take a round seriously. For the money, a great place to practice golf for real courses.
