Fayetteville Golf & Country Club -- FGCC
Review by: Luke #1-easy warm up hole. #2-OB right, water hazard may come into play on drive, can reach green in 2 if you fly the creek. Second round, plays as a long par 4. #3-a chip shot, but still a difficult par. #4-long par 4, OB right, water left. Second round, short par 5. #5-short uphill par 3. Deceptively difficult green. #6-water left, pine trees right. Green very sloped at the back. #7-Difficult uphill second shot to an evil green. Super slick and no straight putts. #8-Cut the corner with a sharp hook if you're brave. Safe play to the LZ sets up easy par. #9-Good finishing hole with OB right. Greasy green with lots of breaks. Lay up short with the drive (or tee off with a 3wood) or you'll have tree trouble on the approach. Overall, this is a good course for beginners. Short and not much sand. OB and water hazards only come into play if you hit a really bad shot. If you miss the green, miss short. Up and down very difficult if you go over. Slicers will have many penalty strokes from OB right (14 of the 18 holes). Grain runs west on all greens. Lots of very subtle breaks. Play with a local for entertainment and help with reads. Don't believe everything they say. 1,6, 8 and 13 are birdie holes. 5,7, and 9 just be happy with par. The occasional golfer can have a good time and scrape together a decent score. The scratch golfer will not be challenged. Long drivers will end up with lots of half wedge approaches. Local custom is to play large groups (5 or 6 somes). Bring at least a foursome or be prepared to wait on every shot.

Fall Creek Falls State Park Golf Course -- Excellent Course in a Beautiful Setting
Review by: Rob McCormack I visited Fall Creek Falls in July of 2004. I played on a Monday morning so there was no problem getting a tee time. The Pro shop was adequatley stocked and the snack bar had good food. The fairways were bermuda and the greens had bent grass. All in well manicured condition. I played the day after a severe rain storm so most of the bunkers had standing water in them and the sand was packed from the rain. I was surprised that the fairways and greens were completely drained. No puddles or mud anywhere. The course was challenging from the white tees but it was fair to a novice golfer. What the course makes up for in lack of water hazards is strategic bunkering. Even after hitting full drives (230 to 260) I would have at least a 6 to 9 iron left on most par fours. The par fives were not too tough, but the smart play was to take three shots to the green. The par threes varied in length. The greens had enough undulation to make you take a double look, but were very fair and rolled true. Over all my experience was excellent. I will go back to play this course as often as I can. I recommend it and the Inn at Fall Creek Falls to anyone.
