Not worth it

Greens are the worst in Atlanta. No need to line up a putt. Pace of play is awful. Could be a fun little course if the greens were in the slightest good shape, and if you didn’t have to wait 3-5 minutes to tee off each hole Spend a little more and play anywhere else.

Bad Value for the money

I come here often with my friends, and we have never thought it was worth the value. You have to play around soccer golfers and the landscaping crew most of the time. There are multiple turf tee boxes due to poor lawn care. Some of the greens have weeds growing out of them. Overall poor golf course, especially when you factor in the price. Even though it’s only around $25, it really isn’t a good value.

Convenience/Quick Play

Always appreciate the relaxed atmosphere to play a less than 3 hour round of golf. The course is taken care and always in terrific shape.

Course in great shape - watch out for the soccer players

The course itself was in great shape and the grounds keepers are doing a good job handling all the rain we have had.
Issue is the soccer players that started two groups behind us but quickly over took groups of golfers and did not seem to understand any course manners. Shouting and yelling as we were teeing off 20 feet away. They seemed to just charge ahead of golfers already in the fairway as if they were the only ones there. Next time I guess I'll need to check and make sure that no soccer groups are playing near my tee time!

Fast pace of play

Fun little course and for a holiday weekend they spaced out the players so the pace I’d play was great.

Good and Deceptive

Great course for a first try. Holes are pretty close to one another but they are deceptive in their lengths bc the hills going up or down. I was thrown off from the power lines over the clubhouse but you’re all good after you tee off.

Good waste of $20

While this course does offer a different challenge than other courses, the course conditions really are at the bottom of the barrel. Overpriced in my opinion.

Ups and Downs

I think the course is a fun and challenging course. Lots of par 3s. But all are fun to approach.

The course is very close together. Multiple holes run next to each other.

The tee boxes are by far the worst park of the course. And greens aren't great.

I play Steel Canyon more than any other course here. Even though it's not in great shape. It's a fun, chill course. I would not pay full price though. Only using a coupon or hot deal on golf now.

I enjoy challenging my short game and accuracy on this executive course. Good value for the money. I went on a typical muddy day.

Don’t waste your money. Not worth the landfill it was built on. Cart was infested with ants and yellow jackets, clearly hadn’t been cleaned.

Great practice round

Hard to find a better spot in Atlanta to practice on course/playing conditions (vs range). From the back/black tees, there is a decent mix of yardages off the tee and a few par 4/5’s sprinkled in among a majority of par 3’s.

Course looked quite green and lush, greens in good shape. Overall, excellent value to further develop and refine your game, or enjoy a “lower stakes” round.

Will gladly be back in the near future to keep hacking away!
