From tee to green there is really no complaints. However, one you reach the green you are in for a disappointment. EVERY green needs special attention involving the fringe and first cuts. If I had pictures I’d post them. The greens themselves were decent. Extremely slow but good looking. The slope eating is 132. It should have been 140. Also the bunkers need some serious attention too.

Considering weather we’ve had this winter and spring, the course was in decent shape. Green speed was good; quick pace. Fairways are still thin due to cold weather we have been having this spring; temps at night have hindered Bermuda from coming in as of now. Nice weather that day made for an enjoyable day.

Decent layout, some interesting holes, some meh! Busy Saturday, so SLOW!

Course conditions not great, too many people don’t repair ball marks - some very rough tee boxes, fairways and around greens - lots of weeds, very tight lies.

Okay for an easy round, but certainly not as high as the other ratings I have seen posted.

The course was probably as good as any other course this time of the year. There were lots of elevation changes. And I think later on in the season when the grass starts to grow it should be a pretty nice course to play.

Partner and I felt like we had the course to ourselves on this cold, wet, and windy day. Pace of play, as a result, was great as we tooled around in under 3.5 hours.

The wet conditions did limit the course, as we saw standing water in a number of fairways and even one green. We also noticed many of the tee boxes were very chopped up with minimal grass and an overflow of broken tees. Obviously, the inability to get out for normal maintenance was the reason for both conditions.

See you again real soon!

Callahan has hired a new superintendent and the results are amazing. The greens are perfect and fast much harder than last year. Improvements are everywhere, tee boxes, fairways, greens, couldn't be better. The owner and management are so helpful and friendly as any course in Atlanta Ga. My hats off to a great golf course.

Got a bit wet on the front, but the sun came out on the back, so we definitely had to play another 9! Just a beautiful course with amazing views and plain and simply- FUN! Makes you play all the clubs in your bag and requires you to use your brain. Kevin in the pro shop was a real friendly dude who was happy to help us with all our needs. I recommend this course to anyone and everyone! Can't wait to play it again!

Play Callahan several times a year and course is in great condition for this time of the year. They have it set up with the waste grass areas bushwhacked and the grass on the course cut down for the bermuda to grow in. Greens were outstanding except for ball marks that some people never repair. Very minor comment. For a no frills course, there isn't any better in the Atlanta area.
