    Where exactly is Garr Creek from Old Whitney? Is it the one that has the putting green all the way at the back of it? Or am I too far east of Whitney?

    Garr Creek is across the lake from Old Whitney, slightly towards the tressel side when leaving Whitney. It has houses on the right side when you go in and several docks. It is a no wake zone in there, bouys at the mouth.

    Garr creek I'm pretty sure is where Badin Shores is the huge cluster of modular homes on the hill. Correct me if i'm wrong.
