Rolling valley holes, undulating greens and water hazards on 13 of the holes is all part of the fun and beauty of playing at Butternut Creek Golf Course, a par-73 18-hole course in downtown Blairsville.

For nearly 50 years, Mossy Creek Golf Club in Cleveland, has been drawing golfers to its beautiful Georgia setting and enjoyable course. Previously known as Skitt Mountain Golf Course, this a shorter 18-holes (just over 5, 985 yards), but it has enough challenges to amuse skilled golfers without scaring away newbies.

The Chestatee River winds through many of the holes at Achasta Golf, a semi-private Jack Nicklaus Signature course in Dahlonega, providing lots of beauty shots – and plenty of interesting ones! It’s a favorite PGA qualifying course and even experienced golfers will find it a challenge. Dining is available in several restaurants on the property.
