Detailed description of Barnsley Resort Golf Course

Barnsley Resort Golf Course, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Adairsville, Georgia.

This Jim Fazio-designed championship golf course opened in 1999. The course was ranked #5 in the state by Golf Week (public and resort courses, 2007). The course is also known as The General Course.

The course is a par 72 layout plays to 7,350 yards from the back tees. Multiple tees and strategically placed hazards makes this a test for golfers of any skill level.

The course blends into the surrounding landscape, providing beautiful vistas of the mountains and the estate.

The course has serene vistas, flawless greens & arguably the best collections of par 3's in all of golf. The General, is one of the most desirable & highly sought after courses to play in the Southeast. The General has been ranked in the top 20 golf courses in Georgia by Golf Digest for three years running.

Through the valley and the woods For the first two holes, golfers might just believe they're in Scotland instead of northern Georgia, Once they reach Hole #3 all such thoughts vanish. At "The Alley", golfers enter a hardwood forest. Tall reeds, cattails and thick brush underneath a tree-lined fairway offer a tricky hazard to the green's right side.

The three other par three's are even more challenging. Hole #8 has been dubbed "The Descent". The tee-shot on this hole descends close to 100 feet to a soft, sculptured green.

Hole #14, or "Mountain View", is one of the most striking, featuring a full-on view of Wolf Cave Mountain and the neighboring peak. An abrupt descent of nearly 100 feet immediately tests a golfer's nerve and club selection. Two bunkers and Dry Run Creek, which feeds into a pond, collect errant or tentative shots.

Hole #17 closes the course's amazing collection of par three's. The illusion from the tee would indicate that the putting surface pitches from front to back, with marshy wetlands beyond awaiting all "fliers." A deep and flash-faced bunker protects the front of the green from anything that dares to be short. A glassy pond at the right front constitutes hazard number three for a trio of entrapments. Altogether, the par three's range from 120 to 266 yards and require several different clubs from 12 tee boxes.

Day 67 - 100 days, 100 courses (Sunday, May 19, 2019)

Golf is a crazy game. After two great rounds, I have what could be my worst round in 2 months.

As a foursome, we couldn%u2019t hold greens or read putts and on top of that, I left my drive in Atlanta.

Oh well, another course tomorrow. 101 and 4 lost balls.
