The Hooch Golf Club
Editor's Note: Course closed for business.
The Hooch Golf Club sits along the Chattahoochee River in Duluth, sprawling across a scenic landscape covered with ponds and lakes. The course is an executive, par-61 layout that combines traditional features with modern challenges. Although there aren't any par 5s on the golf course there are a few holes that stretch to over 400 yards, which guarantees that you'll be using all the clubs in your bag. There is plenty of water throughout the golf course, including three holes that play right along the river. It might not be what you're looking for if you want something truly formidable, but for a short course it's a good challenge that provides excellent iron practice. Besides the golf course, The Hooch is also known for its 12-acre, lighted driving range. There are also putting and chipping greens with a deep-faced practice bunker.

this is a little intown jewell, right on the river. been a godsend, but it has one more week then it's gone. staff are awesome, agronomy folks very, very hard working. so sad to see it go!
I hate to see it go
I'm sure going to miss this place! 10 great years playing here
Better than you think.
As a single handicap player and expecting courses to challenge me with acceptable conditions of fairways and greens, I was VERY impressed with Hooch Golf Club.
The greens are firm and the divots are harder and no wet which is great for the greens to keep in great condition. There are spotty yellow areas but the green rolls true. The greens were very wet due to the due and fall weather coming in, however, I was still happy to know the greens were hard, true to backspin, and I wasn't dealing with wet slushy greens. If management were able to reduce the wet dew in the morning, this course is in great great condition!
Pace of play for 18 holes was 2.5 hours! For a twosome, I played blue tees and the other gentlemen played white tees. Without a wait in front of us we crushed our pace of play! Super impressed.
Great Executive Course
This is a nice course to play when you are short on time.....about 2 1/2 hours to play 18 holes. Good conditions and friendly staff.
Play here regularly. Greens are never all that great but to not let us know ahead of time they were being aerated was not good. I would have probably chosen a different course if I had know this condition of the greens.
Just airated, so greens were horrible. Overall course condition has declined over the past few years. Still a fun track, but needs some work.
Great for Iron work
Not a bad course for the price. Kinda hard to put with all the leaves on several greens in the late afternoon. I would suggest playing early for the clean greens. Overall: very satisfied, will try again
Great Executive Course
I have played here 3 times and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time. The course is in good condition, and considering the pace of play and layout, it is a great value. I choose to walk (push cart) for the exercise; it’s a very flat course. If you’re looking for a quick sub 3 hour round, there is no better place in metro Atlanta!
Thought it was going to be a long day but played off the back 9 first but it went quick even quicker on the front 9 .
Course in good shape but greens need to be be taken care of by the participants they need to repair there marks on the greens ball marks need to be fixed after playing the hole.
I enjoyed this round tremendously. The weather was nice and the course conditions very good. It was a nice outing.
