Named 2nd Best New Affordable Public Course in America by Golf Digest for 2005.
The 6,800-yard course is situated on a peninsula within the state park and the water views are stunning, with 10 of the 18 holes skirting Lake Richard B. Russell. Bob Walker’s design has been compared to the more expensive courses at Lake Oconee because of the challenging layout and the scenic vistas. One exception to that comparison is that there are no visible lakefront houses from any vantage point on the course, consistent with the state park golf course theme of “no crowds, no houses, no noise.”
Arrowhead Pointe was also named in TravelGolf.com's Top 10 Courses in Georgia, alongside such venerable courses as Augusta National, East Lake, TPC at Sugarloaf and Ocean Forest. And Arrowhead Pointe is the only public course on the list.
