About 45 minutes NW from Augusta GA in McCormick, SC there is a hidden gem of a place called Savannah Lakes village. It is located adjacent to Lake Thurmond and has 2 courses: Tara and Monticello. I have played both of them and loved them both. Monticello is my favorite course because of how its proximity to the lake. It is incredibly peaceful and scenic. Every time I play there it is a therapeutic experience. It costs 38-47 dollars (except for masters week) depending on the day and its worth every penny and then some.

Has anyone played these courses? I highly recommend them if you are ever in the Augusta GA area.

I played in a tournament here last year and was pleasantly surprised.  Monticello is a great course. I haven't plated Tara yet but i will.

Tara is a little easier than Monticello. It is less "scenic." Only one hole has the lake in view. It is more of a forest type course. It is still really nice.

both are fun courses..Tara a little more hilly and yes monticello more scenic..the only negative is the clubhouse staff was least friendly group i've encountered in quite some time..little information offered (carts, rules of course for carts, etc..at tara, had to wait 20 minutes just to pay)..otherwise a good tract to play and inexpensive
