Ranging from North Georgia mountain and lake settings to South Georgia coastal locations, each golf course is known for natural greens, tree-lined fairways and unique challenges, and all are open daily except for certain holidays.

Reservations are recommended, both for tee times and accommodations packages. Some clubhouses serve breakfast and lunch. Here is a preview of just a few of the golf courses and deals offered by Georgia State Parks:
While The Creek at Hard Labor State Park is fittingly regarded as the hardest of the courses, it was named "4th sweetest deal in the USA" by Golf Digest Frugal Golfer.

Russell State Park, consistently rated highly by Golfweek and Travelgolf.com, is offering two-day, two-night golf packages starting at $160 – $ 182 per person, now through November, a $30 per person discount. The winter rate is an even deeper discount. From December through February, for just $124 per person, enjoy two nights in a two-bedroom cabin, and two rounds of golf, with a four person minimum.
Voted Best Municipal Golf Course in Georgia by Golf Digest, the championship The Lakes at Laura S. Walker State Park is near the northern edge of the Okefenokee Swamp, and features undulating greens and native sand for the many bunkers and waste areas. This coastal Georgia course has three large lakes and is popular for great course conditions and mild weather. Here, golf packages start at $58, including lodging at a choice of nearby Waycross hotels, and breakfast, if applicable, at the hotel.
