Detailed description of Hawks Point Golf Club, CLOSED 2018

Hawk's Point Golf Club, previously named Vidalia Country Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Vidalia, Georgia.

The course, designed by John Beddingfield opened for play with nine holes in 1949. Don Waugh redesigned this course in 1985 with its expansion to 18-holes.

Hawk's Point Golf Club is owned by Tiger Creek, LLC. In 2008, Hawk's Point made a major investment in a new build on its existing property. Redesigned by Steve Holton and Don McMillanas a shot-makers course with 6,743 yards from the tips to test every aspect of your game, Hawk's Point is truly a championship golf course

The greens are medium in size and speed and vary in undulation. The course's signature hole is #6, a 596-yard, par 5, requiring a long tee shot over a ditch and an approach shot over a creek to a two-tiered green.

The course closed on September 29, 2018

The following report is from http://southeastgeorgiatoday.com

September 25, 2018- Despite an ongoing membership drive, Hawks Point Golf Course owner Andy Page is closing the golf course in Vidalia.

In late summer, Page closed the course but later reopened it to see if more members would join. A membership drive attracted the most members the course has ever had, according to manager Paul Claxton.

"We're in a better position financially now than it's ever been since he's owned it.  We have more members here now than we've ever had since he's owned it.  I'm very surprised he's taking this course of action considering the positive response out of the community.  We added 50 new members and I feel it's not the right thing to do, but I don't own the facility and it was his decision solely.  He wants out of the golf business," Claxton said.

Page informed Claxton late Sunday that the course would close Friday, September 29.
