Hunter Pope Golf Course, Monticello Georgia
Listed as semi-private, Hunter Pope is a friendly golf course of moderate difficulty near Monticello Georgia. While many holes are un-remarkable, the Par 4 first hole provides 350 yards of wide open play to make an easy start. The extremely short 3rd hole par 4 boasts a blind green from the tee, and the green is elevated and framed by woods and swamp.
Hunter Pope continues to mix the interesting with the boring, the short lengthed with the average. On a rolling piece of land, Hunter Pope is not overly hilly, but has several instances of teeing off down or up a long, slow climb. But the best at Hunter Pope is saved for last, as a Par 5 15th hole is one of the long, gentle climbs. Reachable in two, it is nonetheless restricted to those who can hit a straight 300 yard drive. The 16th is of average appeal, but 17 is a newly remodeled dogleg left around water, and 18 is a short par 3 over water. While 18 is certainly not a spectacular finish, it is a welcome reprise.
Considering the length and visual appeal of 15, 16 and 17, we would rate Hunter Pope as an above average finish, and the course as a whole as just slightly below average in appeal, but fairly priced.
