Butternut Creek Golf Course, Public, 706-439-6097
Butternut Creek Golf Course features a combination of rolling valley holes and challenging mountain slopes with mountain views from all 18 holes on the course. Each hole is unique – not a single hole is remotely similar to another.
Owned and operated by the Union County Recreation Department, Butternut Creek Golf Course sits in downtown Blairsville below beautiful Ivy Log Mountain. Butternut Creek plays to a modest 6,500+ yards, but 4 to 6 tee boxes on every hole give challenging options for every player. Water comes into play on 13 holes. Mounds, undulating greens, and elevation changes are found throughout the course. Butternut Creek Golf Course boasts Penncross Bent Grass greens and Tifton 419 Bermuda fairways and tees. The roughs and mounds have common Bermuda and love grass.
Nestled in the foothills of Blairsville comes a golf experience like no other. At the center of the project stands Old Union, a golf course designed by world renowned architect Denis Griffiths. The 7,667 yard masterpiece offers shot makers of all abilities the chance to play a golf course with a true Scottish feel. With five different sets of tees, golfers will be able to choose a set of tees that best suites them.
Old Union offers one of the premier practice facilities in the North Georgia Mountains, with a double tiered grass range that stretches 400 yards, 2 separate short game target greens and a full putting green.
