Golf at Little Ocmulgee’s Wallace Adams Course
Wallace Adams Golf Course is an affordable, peaceful, yet challenging experience golfers won’t soon forget. The classic 18-hole course is surrounded by loblolly pines, willows, and magnolias, in the secluded setting of Little Ocmulgee State Park & Lodge. Whether you’re planning a full-fledged golf getaway or playing a quick nine after work, Wallace Adams will quickly become one of your favorite golf courses in Georgia.
The top-flight venue features the well-maintained Bermuda fairways and TifEagle Bermuda greens that you’d expect from a golf resort. While most players opt for traversing the course in a cart, walking is permitted year-round. The full-service pro shop offers all golf accessories including club rentals, along with a snack and beverage bar. Wallace Adams also boasts a driving range, chipping area and practice green for players to warm up in advance of their round.
Pristine Setting, Classic Design
Once golfers are on the course, they not only bask in the pristine natural setting of Little Ocmulgee State Park, they appreciate the straightforward design of Wallace Adams. Free from distractions, players can take on a fair course with no hidden water hazards or secret sand traps.
The front nine is tight and requires players to bring their shot-making skills. The less restrictive back nine – originally designed by O.C. Jones of the renowned Robert Trent Jones family – tests players with smaller, sloped greens and doglegs on the fairways.
Commonly described as ‘friendly’, the course design does not exclude any playing style and is suitable for golfers of all ages and abilities. The many doglegs throughout the 18-hole course mean golfers are more likely to play to a spot on the fairway to set up skillful second and third shots. Although long-ball hitters willing to take a chance may choose to air it out around the bends, Wallace Adams rewards a thoughtful approach to each stroke.
One round is all it will take to see why golfers around the Southeast continue to hail Wallace Adams as one of their favorite courses in Georgia.
