If you haven't played The Creek in a while, you're in for a challenging surprise. This state park golf course located closest to metro Atlanta got a facelift last summer. The greens were enlarged by more than 65% and they were converted to a new ultra dwarf hybrid grass, called Champion Bermuda. With these exciting enhancements, The Creek now boasts some of the best playing surfaces in the area.
The first hole at The Creek has been called "the hardest starting hole in Georgia" by golfers who have played it. The 18-hole course has been a favorite of locals and visitors alike, for its challenging layout in a pristine, natural setting. Come take a new look at The Creek at Hard Labor. The price combined with top-notch service and course conditioning will insure you play again and again.
While this park may be best known for its golf course, The Creek, it also offers a wide range of recreational opportunities in a beautiful wooded setting. Horseback riders can explore 22 miles of trails, while hikers have their own 2.5-mile trail. A lakeside beach is open for swimming during summer. The park provides one of Georgia’s best golf values, along with a pro shop, driving range, rental carts and junior/senior citizen discounts. Hard Labor Creek cuts through the course, creating water hazards on five holes. The creek is thought to have been named by slaves who tilled summer fields or by Native Americans who found it difficult to ford.Course Layout:
