Georgia Veterans Memorial Golf Course

Georgia Veteran's Memorial Course
 
Georgia Veterans rests quietly on the shores of Lake Blackshear. Architect Denis Griffiths has worked his magic once more to convert rich bottomland setting and turned it into a highly pleasing and challenging golf course. Mounds, water and plenty of sand define the holes and enhance the challenge. The Tif Dwarf Bermuda greens are large and sloping, but not tiered. They putt as smooth as glass. The wide Tif 419 fairways wind through mounds and stands of tall loblolly pines.
