SLOW

They were 20 min behind starting groups, and the front 9 still took over 2.5 hours. Finally finished #9 nearly 3 hours after my initial tee time. Not a single sighting of a Marshall or anyone trying to pick up the pace. Don’t play here if the weather is nice. I ran out of daylight and didn’t finish due to the 6-hour round.

Thank you for the review, we apologize for the slow pace of play on Saturday. We monitor pace of play through our GPS system and advised the 1:24, 1:36 and 1:48 tee times that they may not complete the round due to pace of play at that time being approximately 4 hours 45 minutes. Groups could check-in at the Turn and receive a rain check for the back 9 and were still allowed to continue on and play as many holes as they could until 5:25PM.

Please call the golf shop at 678-318-7861 to receive your 9 hole rain check.

Please accept our apologies for the poor playing experience, we hope that you will return soon. Typically our pace of play is between 4 hours and 4 hours 30 at weekends and although you may not see a course marshal it is actively managed on a daily basis.

Kevin

You need to play at battle course during auturm/winter time.I learned it a hard way while playing cheaper course where there is nonexistent of maintenance. Lake Lanier Golf is one of the best course you can ever play in your lifetime

The course is in great shape. Pin positions tough on undulating greens. It was wet in a lot of fairways but it was still 90 degrees, which was good for pace of play.. Course
Maintenance crew needs to be more aware of when players are hitting so they can turn off or idle down their equipment. Only happened a couple of times though. Although carts had GPS ours did not work. So first time with no idea on some holes what we were hitting into. I would play it again though.

Thank you for the review, we are currently updating all the hardware for our GPS system so there are a few devices that are out of commission. Please accept our apologies for that.

Nice course only lost one ball in the lake. There are some forced carries over the lake so play the right tees.
Greens were in good shape ha be a lot of undulations.

Ok Course. Staff is rude.

Love playing alongside the lake. However, the pace is slow for the price range, and the staff is very rude - especially the course manager.

Hello Mr. Harston,
Thank you for the feedback. I have investigated your complaint and analyzed your last two rounds with us here at the course via our GPS system that records cart locations and round times. On Sunday October 18th your group started at 1:10PM and completed your round in 4 hours 28 minutes. We believe that a round less than 4 hours 30 minutes is perfectly adequate for the enjoyment of our guests who are of varying abilities.
On your prior visit to our golf course your group started at 3:27PM and played in 3 hours and 53 minutes. You were on #18 fairway at 7:17PM therefore we believe you managed to complete all 18 holes before sunset The pace of play from 1:50PM onwards that day was less than 4 hours for every group. I am personally delighted with that pace of play in a busy Sunday afternoon.

Our Golf Shop Supervisor is the person you refer to as "course manager" and kindly heard out your original complaint about pace of play from October 4 and offered rain checks as a gesture of goodwill. My belief, after speaking with him, is that he was merely being assertive in communicating to you that we would not offer rain checks to you again given you were on track for a round of 4 hours and 30 minutes. In your review you have branded all Lanier Islands Legacy Golf Course staff as 'very rude' and I completely disagree here. There is no evidence to suggest all our staff are rude and prior recent reviews mentioning our staff suggest the opposite is true.

In the event that you would like to play our golf course again please ensure you call me directly and I will determine if we can accommodate your group's request.

Regards,
Gary Clarkson

Fabulous!

This course is an hour away from me but I had heard so much about it that I had to play it. I was on vacation and made it my highest priority. It did not disappoint! Most holes border lake Lanier which provided a nice breeze all day. The course grooming was top notch and the layout was interesting as well as challenging. The greens rolled true and fairways and tee boxes where in tremendous shape too.
