For $50 they need to update the golf carts. They need to add the GPS system in the carts. Some of the greens have crab grass growing in them.

"Very nice and scenic front 9, goofy back 9"

I ended the round feeling positive but mixed about this course. The front 9 wraps around the lake very nicely, with good golf holes and very scenic views of the lake and the mountain. The back 9, which begins what seems like a mile away from the front, is much different. It plays inland in very hilly areas and is tighter. Some of the fairways seem to just be routed straight through major ups and downs of hills. There are many blind shots and some odd configurations. The greens were thick but nicely sloped so were interesting and fair. This course is definitely not walkable, with big elevations through fairways and very long green to tee distances.

The course offers several great views of Stone Mountain. The course is fun but challenging with major changes in elevations, some blind shots and a lot of hills. The greens were in good shape and the rough was manageable. The beautiful tall trees prevent any wind so if you go in the summer get ready to sweat. You also have to pay a park entrance fee of $15.00 which is not included in the golf game. Very friendly and helpful staff .

I typically play Stone Mountain - Lakemont a few times each year, but this was only my second round in the past two years. Lakemont essentially lost the greens making play less than enjoyable. The bent grass has mostly recovered, but the greens are still quite poor (slow, bumpy and inconsistent). The bunkers are also not being properly maintained and the rough is covered in grass clippings. Better maintenance would not make Lakemont a good value. The $15 park entry fee is no longer offset by the golf course and is essentially a $15 surcharge for playing this poorly maintained course. I rarely give a 1-star review without slow play being involved, but the surcharge is in my opinion simply over the top. There are much better golf options in the Atlanta metro than Stone Mountain.

I played Lakemont this morning on a Hot Deal on Golf Now so it was only $15. While I can't complain too much for playing 18 at this price, I am writing this review to those of you who might pay $40 to $60 for a round here as its normally listed on the weekend on Golf Now. DONT DO IT. 6/9 greens on the front are virtually unplayable. I don't know a thing about turf management or horticulture, but these greens have and infestation or disease that has caused them to all but die completely. They are hard and cracked all over the place with bare sand spots and bumps everywhere (not aeration). Not only are they impossible to putt on, approach shots would only stay if the rolled up onto the green. Its truly a shame and I would hope they would shut down the front nine of this course seeing as they have 18 more holes on the Atonement course and get this issue fixed asap. It is a beautiful course and setting and its a shame its in such horrible shape. I have always felt the upkeep of this course is below average as they have numerous areas of rocks and sand that are clearly in playable in bounds areas, but the condition of these greens takes it to a whole new level. So think twice before booking a round here this summer. And remember, its $15 extra to park in the Stone Mountain park on top of what you pay for your round....

I was very disappointed in Stonemont. I played this course 10 years ago and it was pristine, now it is bad. The greens are bumpy and patched, and tee boxes are terrible. It is not worth what they are charging foot this course. I even had a hot deal and it should have been lower.

I won't be back.

Traveled from out of state to attend the Masters, played the course the week of the Masters and the price was doubled. It should have been 1/2 price. The greeens were horrible!! Bumpy, hairy , some greens were washed out and in disrepair. The views were awesome and the staff was great. They stated they were going to replace greens on Lakemont course. Call before and ask about condition

Don't waste your time or cash on the Lakemont course. Thankfully our round was included with hotel stay.....having to pay to play on these greens would've been a crime. Absolute worst shape of greens I've ever played. Most greens bumping and like putter plinko to get to the cup. Another par 3 green had areas that were completely washed out leaving sand traps on the green. I have no idea what the Stonemont course shape was like so maybe that one is better??? I'd call and ask about those greens if planning on playing that course. Layout good and could be a really good setup but clearly they don't give a rip about the greens. Very underwhelmed!
