Nestled in the hills and surrounded by countless leafy trees, FarmLinks gives golfers the chance to appreciate the man-made through the game of golf, the nature-made through golfers' surroundings, and the alien-overlord-made through their every thought and perception. In addition, a game at FarmLinks comes with a traditional Southern-style lunch in the clubhouse.
Designed by Bill Scarborough in 1962, Pine Hill Country Club's course wends golfers through 18 holes spread out over verdant fairways, which are dotted with ponds and lined with pine trees. The 6,357 yards of playing grounds challenges players throughout the par 72 course, including hole 17, which features a scant 250-yard drive and a green protected by a water hazard on three sides. An onsite pro shop stands ready to bolster players' gear collections with an arsenal of golf necessities, from clubs to bags of ice for nursing bruised egos.
Meadow Links Golf Club stretches its grassy reaches over the rolling hills of George T. Bagby State Park. The par-72, 18-holer bears all the distinctive elements of a Scottish links-style course, including deep rough, narrow fairways, and few trees to block sudden, kilt-lifting gusts of wind. The 7,007-yard course shares the park's 700 acres with a lake, swimming beach, and plenty of lodging, as well as a restaurant for post-round eats.
Daily, golfers hit North Columbus Driving Range to strike golf balls, shake the rust from their swings, and better their games.

The 18 holes at Frank House Municipal Golf Course embroil golfers in a test of skills and mental toughness as they guide orbs over a lush, emerald carpet. After completing the relatively straight front nine, players must adjust aim for shots on the back nine, where all but three of the holes make severe dogleg turns. One of these doglegs, the 18th, forces players to lay up short of a lake, and then approach over its width or try to freeze it over with an icy glare.
