The Crystal Falls North Georgia setting provides an outstanding opportunity for a near perfect golfing experience. From the onset, the goal was to create an environmentally friendly course subtly impacting the existing land through careful placement of the holes on and over the terrain. Retuning nines are featured with a pleasant combination of individual tree lined and parallel fairways.

A magnificent entrance to the course features the scenic foothills to the Blue Ridge Mountains as the backdrop. On the first tee, a panoramic horizon frames the 427 yard par four which can be studied in its entirety. The short hard dogleg driving to the right with a reachable green second hole, quickly tells the story of the variety and challenges lurking in the shadows at Crystal Falls.

HOLE #1
As you stand on the 1st Tee, you face an wide inviting fairway framed with grass bunkers to the left and sand bunkers long and to the right. The perfect tee shot is right center, which leaves a short to mid-length second shot into a long green facing front right to back left. Keep your approach right center to avoid the deep left greenside bunker. The green slopes back to front and right to left but is relatively flat and thus provides a mild challenge on the starting hole.

The drive must be placed right-center to avoid the large fairway bunker. Avoid the right side (short) and left of the fairway bunker.

HOLE #15
This hole requires a well placed tee shot to the right center of the fairway. Anything short right rolls back into the right hazard and creates a very difficult recovery. Left off the tee results in tree problems short and long. Long hitters beware since the fairway is hard and a powered tee shot can run over the crest downhill to the crossing hazard. The second shot is downhill to a relatively flat green. Putts roll middle to back right and middle to front right.

Hit it long and straight or you will be in a hazard right or left. The second shot also requires long and straight to avoid the front and left greenside bunkers. Also, don't go long or face a blind chip to the pin. The green is large and slopes back to front and left to right.

HOLE #17
The toughest of the Par 3's, this hole plays uphill and the green is guarded front right with a large bunker and left with a roll-off area the length of the green. The tee shot must be left center and will roll left to right. Beware if the pin is in the front because the false front comes into play. A well placed tee shot gets rewarded but get your 3 and move on.

HOLE #18
The tee shot here must carry a tee fronting lake and be center cut to avoid a left center bunker. The second shot must avoid a center fairway bunker to set up an easy approach. The approach must target the appropriate level of the two tiered green which slopes back left to front right. Get to the right level and enjoy par.
