Course re-opens as 18-hole championship link

The much-anticipated re-opening of Brazell's Creek Golf Course in Reidsville is scheduled for July 15.
The course is in Reidsville, about an hour northwest of Hinesville.
The new course will feature a full-length, 18-hole golf course. Georgia golf course architect Denis Griffiths has designed an entirely new and challenging layout for the southeast Georgia locale.
Minimal changes to the existing terrain and careful integration of course design with the surroundings was essential to Griffiths' philosophy. Brazell's Creek is near wetlands. The par-72 layout will play to just under 7,000 yards, boasting five sets of tees. The signature 15th hole is a 207-yard par 3, which plays over scenic wetlands to a large, undulating island green. A 300-yard winding bridge connects several holes.
Don't let the scenic beauty of the land fool you. It's still a shot-makers course and strategic play is required.
Rates for 18 holes with cart will be $33 on weekdays and $37 on weekends and holidays. Tee time reservations have started for the July 15 opening and beyond. Tee times can be made by calling the course directly at (912) 557-7745 or by going online to
Gordonia-Alatamaha State Park boasts 29 tent, trailer or RV campsites. Golf packages will be available for campers, as well as with area hotels customers. To further enhance the offering at the park, five 2-bedroom cottages are under construction, with a projected completion of early 2009.
The Golf Operations Section of the State Parks and Historic Sites Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resource operates the golf facilities located in Georgia State Parks. The courses were developed over the past 50 years and placed in various state parks to improve the quality of life for local citizens and provide visitors to Georgia an opportunity to play golf in a beautiful, natural setting.
