This course is setup in more of a links styled course which makes playing Golf in the mountains a little more enjoyable. Butternut Creek Golf Course, well it is almost complete opposite with that of Old Union.

But what you may not know is that Butternut Creek is not just your ordinary average Golf Course. Because of those hills and it’s scenic beauty, not to mention the fact that it lies right in the heart of Downtown Blairsville Georgia, it is well known for some of the best snow sledding around on those Snowy Winter Days! That’s right, when the Union County School Superintendent Mr. Gary Steepe declares no school, the students and their families head to the slopes!
So next time Snow is in the forecast for the North Georgia Mountains, you might want to grab that sled, or maybe blow up that tube that you use during those Summer cruises on Lake Nottely and head on over to the Butternut Creek Golf Course for some Winter fun at it’s best. Enjoy The Mountain Life!
