Cold, Rainy and Windy..... But Fun as always

Winter has arrived in Atlanta! Cold and windy with sprinkles every now and then made for the toughest of conditions. The course was maintained well and played as well as could be expected with all of the rain we have had lately. Nice layout with some tough holes and some straight forward ones as well. Will be back on another Hot Deal when it warms up a little!

Save your money

Great course to spend the entire Saturday on a 5+ hour round. Slow play abounds and the marshals don't seem to mind at all. The layout is ridiculous with no turn at the clubhouse. Once you begin you never see the clubhouse again until you finish #18. The greens are littered with pitch marks - why expect more from the same players hitting multiple balls from the tee box and fairways. On a positive note I did see two water jugs on the course....Needless to say I wont be driving over an hour to play here again.

Great course for the money! Greens are a little gone, due to the hot weather and the bent grass, but very good course. I always go after it first if available!

Not Worth the Money Right Now...

I've played Crystal Lake about 50x and it truly is Jekyll & Hyde. Couple weeks ago the greens were mediocre. This past Saturday 8/11 the greens were not even playable. There are dead spots ALL OVER the greens not to mention the players on this course DO NOT fix their ball marks. I fixed several fresh ball marks near my own ball mark and it was clear the ball marks were from Saturday 8/11, the groups ahead of ours. We paid $46.00 to play that Saturday and it's worth around $1 per hole right now, the price of the cart fee. The course has to warn players the greens are unplayable BEFORE sending us out. My group likes to gamble and due to the conditions of ALL the greens we couldn't have a proper game.

My recommendation is do not play this course and force the ownership to do something about the greens. Crystal Lake is one of the best lay outs in the entire state of Georgia and they need to install Bermuda greens tomorrow. The Bent grass that far South dies every single year. If the course installed Bermuda greens they could take the rate up to $60-$65 a round EASY and players would pay it. I've never reviewed a course on GolfNow but honestly my entire group felt ripped off paying $46 for a golf course that is not really a golf course, just golf carts, a range, tee boxes, fairways and rough, not one of the greens was remotely playable!!! A golf course without putting greens is NOT A GOLF COURSE! Please feel free to reach out to me if the course wants to make good on the experience we had.

The course is in very good shape except the bent grass greens are stressing a little but that is normal for this time of year. They still putt true just a tad slow.

I haven't played this course in almost a year and what a difference! The new ownership has brought this course up to a good standard with the bent grass greens being in really good shape as well as the rest of the course. The pace of play was excellent and I had forgotten how challenging the course could be. Would definitely recommend !

Always on my list.

I always try to play Crystal Lake when in the Atlanta area. Played as a single and got stuck behind a couple of pretty slow foursomes, but eventually got through them and finished in just over three hours. The greens are a little banged up, but rolling pretty true. Overall course conditions were very good. Love the layout. Play the proper tees! I am a 5 handicap, but 64 years old. Played the blue tees at about 6400 yards, and it was challenging enough. If you fix yours plus one or two on each green it will be improved the next time you come. Thanks to the Super and the staff for another enjoyable round. See you again in 8 or 9 months!

Always enjoyable

Played here several times due to a good layout and good prices. The only negative to the latest outing was the group in front who had the wrong shoes on and left every green looking like a soccer team had just held practice there. Otherwise, the course was in great condition and our games were close as we all scored well.
