This is an embarrassment to the golf community. Greens were not maintained and reminiscent of a Plinko board. Tee boxes were divoted and not level. Fairways did not have much turf and were hard to distinguish from rough. Hole 18 had a strong smell of sewage run-off.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
