Day 2

Kinderlou Forest

Rise and shine on day two with breakfast at Urban Honey Bee followed by an early tee time at Kinderlou Forest Golf Club. Urban Honey Bee is a hidden gem in downtown Valdosta and is only open for breakfast on Friday and Saturday. Get there early for a one-of-a-kind experience and be sure to try a breakfast biscuit infused with their homegrown honey.

Once your tastebuds are buzzing, head over to Kinderlou to make that early tee time. Kinderlou is Valdosta's premier golf and residential community. This Davis Love III Signature-designed 18-hole championship course offers five tee boxes on each hole making it an ideal location for groups and couples at different skill levels and driving capabilities. Interestingly, for an area as flat as southern Georgia, Kinderlou's natural ravine on the fourth hole adds a daunting challenge.

In addition to the beautiful weather and challenging course, the homes in the community provide an inviting backdrop for soaking up the sunshine and the camaraderie during your weekend away.

Once the score cards are all tallied up, head into the Kinderlou Clubhouse for lunch at The Oaks. The menu features delicious sandwiches, salads and burgers - perfect for refueling after 18 holes of golf. Be sure to save room for a hearty dinner at Woodstack BBQ. After all, you can't leave Valdosta without having some of our iconic BBQ. For a true taste of the south, order the fried pickles, pulled pork sandwich, mac and cheese and brisket.

End the evening with the guys at Downtown Social, Valdosta's premier gathering place to have a drink and play some games. Head into one of our sports suites and practice your virtual swing, rent a boutique bowling lane, throw some darts, or try your luck at our virtual pinball.
