Detailed description of Rabun Country Golf Club

Rabun Country Golf Club is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Clayton, Georgia.

Rabun Country Golf Club first opened for play July 4, 1940.

This little golf course is perched on a hillside under the shadow of Tiger Mountain. Ground for the course was broken in 1939, when the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Works Progress Administration came to Clayton.

#2, a 280 yard par-4 has a pond that must be carried. A tiny, target green, typical of all holes, is fronted by a bunker. Big hitters might attempt to drive the par-4, but a safe shot to the ample landing area is a more prudent option.

#6, a 485 yard par-5, is the number one handicap hole. It's a double dogleg that requires a long fade from either tee if trying to reach the green in two. A raised green, sandwiched between a bunker to the right and a creek to the left, demands an accurate approach.

#7 is no picnic. Many think it is more of a challenge than #6. You have to hit a high draw to get up the hill and hit a small green.

#8 is a 174 yard par-3. From the tee box on eight, the green sits far below on a little knoll and plays much shorter than the 174 yards length. Miss the green left, right or long and you'll find yourself pitching back up.

Recent improvements - a driving range and putting green - have only made a day of golf at Rayburn even better.

Blue tees: par-35, 2,663 yards

White tees: par-35, 2,639 yards

Red tees: par-35, 2,097 yards

Price was senior rate for 18 holes (play around twice - some holes have alternate tees for second time around. We discovered this course when visiting Dillard and area several years ago. A fun course and just right for the shorter length of my drive. I played the red, husband played the white. Harder than the length would indicate as it is hilly. Fairways are narrow on some holes so straight hitters are rewarded! I only lost 1 ball - my husband lost 4 in the woods or ditches. :-) We went to Dillard for an anniversary with plans to play this course. So glad the County decided to keep this historic older course playable.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
