Congratulations! You found out about some of the most amazing golf courses in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Golf will never be the same after you play Big Canoe’s 27-hole championship Mountain Course designed by Joe Lee with striking mountain peaks, rushing streams, and lush green valleys. There are three courses.: The Choctaw, Cherokee, and Creek 9-hole courses offer a wide range of difficulties to test players of all skill levels. There is a fully stocked pro shop in the Clubhouse. You can also work on your game at the practice greens and the driving range.
Here are five reasons why you need golf Big Canoe, GA
1. Three 9 Hole Courses
The creek nine starts with a short par four. From the blue, white or yellow tees, the tee shot is a visually intimidating carry, over Lake Sconti. Once that is negotiated, the approach is to a small, two-tiered green, defended by two bunkers…back and front.
A mid-distance par four to start the nine, playing downhill to a generous fairway turning slightly left for the approach. The second shot plays over a trout stream, and the green is protected by bunkers on the left front. Be careful as the stream turns back and catches balls pushed right of the green.
A great start to the Cherokee nine, this challenging par four turns right around a steep slope with an uphill second shot. Players must be careful on their drive…either playing short, or fading their tee shot away from the three fairway bunkers on the left side. The green has room in the back, so be sure to hit enough club.
2. Stunning Views and Elevation Changes
This Joe Lee designed 27-hole course at Big Canoe weaves through around Lake Sconti and through woods, meadows, covered bridges and amazing mountain-top scenery. This is one of the top rated courses in North Georgia, the course is open year round to residents and guests of Big Canoe owners (vacation rentals). Greens fees vary by season, day of the week and time of day. Inquire at the Golf Club (706-268-3323)
