Gold Creek Golf Club & Resort Course Review
Interesting 27-hole layout…Located north of Atlanta, the course offers a pleasurable and scenic mountain golf setting without the severity of many mountain layouts. With few trees, the course is open in nature, but constant wind and surrounding natural grasses compensate.
Ten new holes were recently added to the original 18-hole layout, with one of the old holes removed. The original back nine remains intact, with the former 10th hole converted into a risk/reward par 5, and the short, par-4 15th now a medium-length par 3 with a treacherous green. The ten new holes have been divided equally among the remaining eight from the original front nine, with the new holes meshing nicely with the originals.
While Gold Creek is a relatively forgiving course off the tee, that is not the case once you get within reach of the putting surfaces. Mike Young, who designed the original 18, is known for the difficulty of his greens, and D.J. DeVictor, the architect for the new holes, has followed suit. With an exception or two, Gold Creek is not particularly long, and is an enjoyable, all-around test no matter which nines you play.
