Beautiful Shape, Greens perfect

Excellent condition, very well maintained. Staff professional and courteous. Course designed well for quick pace of play. Nice size fairways, debris removed and roughs clear for locating wayward shots. Greens perfect. Played a round of golf (3 some) less than 3.5 hours. Highly recommend.

An outstanding test of golf

We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit to Candler Hills, which is an outstanding layout and In superb condition. We received a friendly welcome from all the staff and cannot wait to play the course again and perhaps have time for a meal afterwards In their restaurant.

Candler Hills Consistently Very Good

Fairways and Greens Above average. Pace slower than normal due to 4some of male members playing too slow on greens. Ranger passed us twice but seemed uninterested in the slow group.

All staff friendly and helpful.

Wonderful layout

Great value very difficult to lose golfballs.

You've got to be a horrific player to do so.

A joy to play.

As good as it gets

We play all over the country and pay up to 150.00 to play great courses. Granted Candler does not have a classic layout or bulkheaded Par 3's over water, but the conditions today were as Good as any we have ever played anywhere. Perfect rough, greens, bunkers and surrounds. Perfect.

Solid golf course

The entire facility is organized to provide a great golf experience. The staff was a little standoffish, but polite. The course does not presnt any surprises. The course is right in front of you. You have to play the shot or pay the penalty of the numerous bunkers that are well maintained. The greens were in a state of repair from the summer maintenance regimen. I predict that they will be excellent for the winter season. I recommend that you play this course.

Fun and challenging as always.

I always enjoy playing here. I usually do an early tee time (7:30am or so), and I always get paired with very nice and accommodating members. Course was in good shape overall. Fairways and bunkers are in good shape. Greens have almost recovered from maintenance but were recently sanded, making putts a little more challenging. Definitely enjoyed the round, and will be back soon.

Very nice course...but

Very nice course. Good layout. Good conditions. One of the best around. Rangers very nice. Been here a few times and the people inside pro shop have been less than nice. Had a 1:00 tee time and got there around 12:10. Asked if we could go out early and they said sure, 12:50. Nobody on the course and nobody on the first tee. Just sat there and waited. Looked online and they had open tee times up until 1:00. Checked again if we could go out and the pro shop just said no. Very weird. Rains came after 14 holes so those 40 minutes would have been nice to have back.

Overall very nice course and rangers always driving around with ice. Not a fan of management and not in a rush to come back.

Not to be missed

The course was in great shape. I don't think anybody else was on the course. (We had a 1PM Tee ). The starter asked when did we want the beverage cart to come and it came exactly when we asked for it. Friendly staff. Excellent restaurant and bar after the round.
