Late spring to early summer presents some turf issues, like most munis. From mid June through early November GPC plays very good. The lake vistas are great and the breezes are refreshing during summer months. Overall, a very worthwhile drive to Scottsboro.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area

Always enjoy the vista and challenges here, in better shape than hoped. Still need to do something about food service (better) and their primative alcohol rules ...

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again

Good course. My group plays most of the courses within 1 1/2 hours of Huntsville that offer a challenging layout and good conditions at a fair price. We end up playing Goose Pond Colony about once every 2 months. The pro shop and snack bar are nothing to mention, but the course meanders over a couple of large hills and a couple of holes run next to the neighboring lake. The greens are a bermuda hybrid and are usually in good to great condition depending on when they were last mowed. Definitely worth the hour drive from Huntsville.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
