The Peach Course
The overview of this short but technical course will challenge the best of the Tour Players. Players will need to think ball placement on every shot. With balls rolling across golf greens to the pin placement at the back of some of the golf greens complex, it will really test a player’s ability to gage ball speed on an approach shot. If a player putts too long on some of the holes it will have them chipping over a curb to get back to the hole to save par. Remember, par is sweet, but to get that birdie, well, that’s what we here in Georgia say: “That’s just peachy”.
On this course Mother Nature herself could be a force to be reckoned with. A wide open landscape allows for wind to come bellowing down the fields. This course plays fast on the grass due to the wind always seeming to be blowing and drying this course out fast. With many undulating fairways and the weather factors, players will need to take full advantage of every tool in their game. Sunshine course’s estimated total length is 3150 yards. If Mother Nature is calm on competition days we might see some really remarkable far off shots holed out. Will the sun be shining on you this November in Georgia?
