Owned and operated by the Union County Recreation Department, Butternut Creek Golf Course sits in downtown Blairsville below beautiful Ivy Log Mountain. Butternut Creek plays to a modest 6,500+ yards, but 4 to 6 tee boxes on every hole give challenging options for every player. Water comes into play on 13 holes. Mounds, undulating greens and elevation changes are found throughout the course. It boasts Penncross Bent Grass greens and Tifton 419 Bermuda fairways and tees. The roughs and mounds have common Bermuda and love grass. While there is no driving range there is a stocked pro shop. A practice putting green is available. Architect for the course was Bill Watts, designer of Innsbruck and Sky Valley golf courses.
