Nice Fairways & Greens but loading up stinks...

Boy if they only used zoyzia on all there courses....what a treat.....Greens putted well.....my issue with all the Fairfield Glade properties is.....You cannot move a single golf cart until its exactly your time to start....you must either use the bag drop.....or schlep all your clubs and stuff to the cart....yep cart guys but nobody loads clubs for even women.....No wonder why EVERYONE who lives here uses carry bags.....No so impressed with a half assed way of running clubs that are either 4 star or 4 1/2 star clubs......

Good not Great

I played Heatherhurst Brae with a friend on a Sunday afternoon. It did not appear to be busy but we were paired with another twosome. Did not bother us but I know for some this can be an issue. The practice facilities were very nice and I always consider it a plus when a course has a nice short game chipping and putting area which this place did. The course was in great shape visually. It has Zoysia fairways which is unique to the other Fairfield courses. The greens looked great but they were a little slow for bent grass this time of year. The Layout just did not fit me personally. It’s a very very short course with out of bounds everywhere. Lots of doglegs with OB. Not a difficult course other than the fact your gonna find yourself hitting 3 from the tee box a couple of times. Number 10 is a beautiful golf hole. Overall this is a good course I would recommend just bring a few extra ball because OB is lurking everywhere.

Another short layout at Fairfield Glades...with foursomes going off at 1 & 10. WTF!

This was the second course I played over a weekend at Fairfield Glades. This was another annoying short course (see my review on Druid Hills) with the tips at 6171y. When I played I had a foursome with me, a married couple, and an 90 year old senior. Playing from 4 tee boxes was itself a trial. But what really surprised me was the course sending off foursomes in the morning from #1 and #10. I was in the first group off of #10 so the front side was completed without anyone slowing us down ahead. But it still too over 2.5 hours to finish 9. Then at the turn, we had one free hole and then we caught up to the groups who went off the other half. It took us 3 hours to finish that 9. In all, a 5.5 hour round. Add to that, another annoyingly sort course and you have a very frustrating day.

The course itself is in fine condition but who can enjoy the layout with such a long round. My overall impression of laying two Fairfield Glades courses over two days is that the locale is best suited for seniors and those who don't mind waiting on every shot. If you are a low handicap player, find another place to play.

Always is great shape

This course, like the rest of the Fairfield Glade courses, is always in great shape. They take special care of their courses from tee to green. I also love playing here because they employee numerous marshals who keep the pace up play moving. You could play on a Saturday with a foursome on every hole and you will still finish in under 4 1/2 hours. Wonderful course in a great area.
