North GA is full of "Goat Track's", courses where you hit driver once an round and never have a flat lie. Feel like it makes you a better and more creative player!

Why has this thread been pinned at the top for a couple years?

Best part of the goat tracks is usually some pretty darn good homemade food at the 19th hole. That and cheap six packs!

Only play goat tracks with 12 packs. Rule #1.

I learned how to play on a goat track. little executive muni course. Par 59. 5 par 4s and the rest are par 3s. the layout is fantastic but unfortunately never in good shape. I love playing there and live about 5 minutes from the place. I do prefer the bigger courses in better shape but this course has a nostalgic feel for me and I know it like the back of my hand.

another goat track I’ve recently discovered and am asbsolutely enamored with is Anthony Country Club in Anthony, NM. this course is so gnarly! with only 9 actual holes cut it was an easy fit on a river bank of the Rio Grande. play 1-9 then come back to first hole  but tee off from box labeled no. 10. a few of the longer holes allow ‘back 9’ tee boxes quite different than the front 9. still offering players a slightly altered approach from its front 9 counterpart. 5807 yards, with a 550yd par 5 being the longest hole. my favorite hole is no. 4&13, as its a blind shot over a county road that brings you in from I-10! No. 4 is 107yds ‘from the tips’  ;) and then they back you up to 127yds. it has a decent sized green that most can land on with help from the makeshift ‘eye in the sky’ rendering they have at the box. dead serious. that green is not huge by any means either. if you reference the cottonwoods in the rendering with your view of them from the box, you’ll be on. as I mentioned the course is on the riverbank so after teeing off you drive/walk through the landscaped underpass and see the green. there is also a large gong built for players to use once you’ve completed the hole. thus announcing to the group behind, and the entire course that they have a clear green! best part is when you tee off there is no mention of ‘the gong’ and or instructions to listen for it! ahhh, middle of nowhere New Mexico logic at it best! honestly I loved it’s shortcomings and wouldn’t change a thing about the layout. $22 during the week for 18 holes and $30 on weekends, and some thrill from the blind shot? I’m game.

it’s easy to see it’s now only a ‘country club’ by name. tennis courts are no longer in use as is the swimming pool. decent chow however. shoot I may go this afternoon, I’m smiling just writing this.

I hope this goat track by the Rio Grande never closes, even if your eyes briefly do when departing the course hoping not to be hit by friendly fire on no. 4!
