  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole1
    Hole 1 | Par 5
    This is a challenging par-5 opening hole with a good chance for a birdie. Two well-played shots can put you on or near the green.

    - Yardage 548
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole2
    Hole 2 | Par 4
    A well placed tee ball to this tight, deceptively difficult fairway is necessary for an approach to this large, elevated green. Par is a good score here.

    - Yardage 415
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole3
    Hole 3 | Par 4
    A good par-4 with a comforting, wide-open fairway. Take one club extra to this two-tiered green.

    -Yardage 380
  • Lake-Blackshear-Georgia-Golf-Packages-Golf-Course-Layout-Hole4
    Hole 4 | Par 5
    A well bunkered par-5 that is easily reached with two good shots by the better player. Miss the fairway here, though, and you could be looking at a big number.

    - Yardage 497
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole5
    Hole 5 | Par 3
    A beautiful, down hill par-3 with a large tree guarding the left hand side of the green. It is better to be short and right than over the green.

    - Yardage 162
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole6
    Hole 6 | Par 4
    This is arguably the hardest hole on the front side. Hitting the fairway is a must, for trees and bunkers guard both sides of the fairway. Choosing the right club for your second shot is very important for your approach into this uphill, two-tiered green.

    - Yardage 400
  • Lake-Blackshear-Georgia-Golf-Resort-Golf-Course-Layout-Hole7
    Hole 7 | Par 3
    A good par-3. Getting your tee shot on the green on this medium length hole is paramount, as the green falls away on all four sides.

    - Yardage 164
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole8
    Hole 8 | Par 4
    Finally, a breather! This is a short par-4 played with a short iron second shot to a large, elevated green. As with #3, though, be sure and take extra club for your approach.

    - Yardage 339
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole9
    Hole 9 | Par 4
    A long, challenging par-4. Your tee shot should be placed perilously close to the left side of the fairway, which is guarded by three bunkers. A tee ball to the right side of the fairway will mean having to maneuver a large pine blocking entrance to this large, undulating green.

    -Yardage 452
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole10
    Hole 10 | Par 5
    A strong par-5 playing uphill all the way. The green slopes severally from back to front, so be sure and place your approach shot below the hole.

    - Yardage 525
  • Lake-Blackshear-Georgia-Golf-Vacations-Golf-Course-Layout-Hole11
    Hole 11 | Par 3
    Toughest (and longest) par-3 on the course. A mid to long iron tee shot to a narrow green. You shot must fly the whole way; run up shots are next to impossible.

    - Yardage 206
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole12
    Hole 12 | Par 4
    A fun par-4. You will play your tee shot to a plateau roughly 50 feet above the level of the green. Play less club for your second shot to this large green.

    - Yardage 369
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole13
    Hole 13 | Par 4
    Hardest hole on the back nine. A very long par-4 that requires a perfect tee shot to a fairway you cannot see from the tee. Your second shot is played to a narrow, kidney shaped green that again cannot be seen from the fairway.

    - Yardage 456
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole14
    Hole 14 | Par 4
    A good tee shot here will leave you a mid to short iron to this large green. A truly beautiful hole with a picturesque pond guarding the right hand side of the green.

    - Yardage 382
  • Lake-Blackshear-Georgia-Golf-Packages-Golf-Course-Layout-Hole15
    Hole 15 | Par 5
    The signature hole at Georgia Veterans. A sweeping, dogleg-left par-5 with a tee shot requiring a precisely placed shot out of a chute of trees. Laying up for your second shot will leave you a short iron to this small, two-tiered green.

    - Yardage 551
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole16
    Hole 16 | Par 4
    A tough par-4 that may require a lay up tee shot for longer players. Your second shot is played slightly uphill to a green than slopes from back to front.

    - Yardage 401
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole17
    Hole 17 | Par 3
    A fun par-3 that rewards a well placed tee shot. The green falls away sharply on all approaches, creating a tough up and down if you miss the green.

    - Yardage 179
  • Lake Blackshear Golf Course Layout Hole18
    Hole 18 | Par 4
    A very good finishing hole. This is a long, dogleg left par-4 that ideally requires a drawn tee shot. The long, mid to long iron second shot to an elevated, two-tired green must be precisely played. Par is a good score here.

    - Yardage 443
