Great Value!

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.
