Looking good!

Played a month ago after the greens were aerated. They were very slow. Came back today and the greens have drastically improved. Rolled true and very fast. Greens are very soft, Fairways are cut down low and in great shape. The course is looking as good as it has all year going into December.

Heron BAY

I liked the layout. Fun to play. Fairways are hard. Greens roll good and are fast.
Course should be in better condition.

Nice track

Course is in good shape and staff is very accommodating. Lost some Pro-v’s on the cart path and the groundskeeper found me to return them. Impressed all the way around.

An absolute “Must play coarse”

Visiting Atlanta for work for several months and a few of the locals mentioned Heron Bay as a coarse to play. I finally got out for a round and I have to say I was very pleased with Heron bay overall, pleasant staff, amazing coarse and pace of play. I consider that a great trifecta to have for a coarse.

The grass is well kept on the fairway and greens, all I can say is “it was like cutting butter with a warm knife”
I would definitely recommend playing a round at Heron bay, I will be back!

Another decent south side course

Continuing my exploration of what the South side of Atlanta has to offer in terms of golf, I had an enjoyable round at Heron Bay. The course is long and challenging (I had played the tips, which were 7,300 yards; players can modulate difficulty and length by moving forward). Course conditions were fine. I'd give it three and half stars. Tees were mostly good, fairways were lush and rough was reasonable. The greens were slow and soft which is what I'd expect at moderately priced course with bent grass greens in the heat of the summer (I struggle to understand why courses try to use bent grass with the heat in this part of the country - you have to leave it way longer than optimum or it will burn out in the summer). Having not played here before I got burned on a couple holes from ignorance, but look forward to getting my own back next time I play it.

Liked the course

Played this course a number of times. It's always in descent shape. Fairways were full, bunkers average. The greens were beat up more from over use but overall not bad.

A good course

The course is in good shape but the traps need a lot of work and the greens are stressing because they are bent.
