Overall the course is in good shape and well worth the drive. The only exception to the good rating is the fact that they charge for range balls which is very poor considering the private status of this club. I would think a club utilizes Sites like GolfNow not only to bring in additional sources of revenue but also to promote the club itself to potential members. Charging for Range balls is like getting an invitation to a party with a BYOB. Poor taste and image!

Played in a tournament at the falls and played a practice round the day prior. Both days were better than ideal conditions...This is a great course with a mix of holes. Some holes are open while some get a little tight. I really enjoyed the mix of par-3s as well with my favorite hole being the short 11th! Plenty of birdies available with the reachable par-5s but they are not easy by any means! Great practice area and clubhouse...Really can't wait to make another trip up here to play crystal falls!

If you have not played this course I would highly recommend. We played during the week so the crowds were low. In fact only one other group was on the course when we played. My son who has not played before was able to hit extra balls here and there because we were not rushed. The fairways are wide and huge. I shot my lowest round ever! A little drive to get there but worth every penny! Try it out.

So glad we chose this course to play. Sunday looked busy but never waited after 2nd hole. Greens rolled very true, well marked sprinkler heads (had front/middle/back yard ages). Nice layout with no silly holes. Good landing areas, well maintained bunkers. Will definitely be back. One of my new favorite courses. Couldn't rate the food or beverage, didn't have opportunity to try them, but water coolers on the course were full and very cold.

The course is great with awesome practice facilities. Several of the holes, especially on the back nine, are very difficult driving holes that require very long carries, just to make it to the fairways. There were two holes where even a a very good drive came short of the fairway and my second shot was from the rough with an acqward stance. The course has beautiful views on many holes.

Had not heard much about Crystal Falls but what I heard was really good and the course didn't disappoint! Immediately noticed the quiet and flowing water of the creek that winds along the course! A very challenging course, especially playing it for first time as there are many blind shots For the first-timer. Loved the 18th - very beautiful and challenging finishing hole. Only knock was the greens had recently been aerated and there was not an aerificatiom alert listed on GolfNow. However, don't let that hold you up - Go Play It!

Out in the middle of nowhere in North Atlanta area this course has character and is well designed. In good shape as fairways like all others now have not completely filled in but green true and speed around 10-11. Staff friendly and cost of beverages and food very good. Three of the Par 3's are on the short side but it has several significant par 4s even from the white tees that will test you. Par 5s are also tough as the course undulation requires tee shots and approach shots with a lot of thought. Play it!
