Loads of Fun

This is the second time we have played at Legacy, and it was just as much fun!

The staff at check in were extremely friendly, the free drinks and hot dogs were great, but the real deal is the golf course! Playing at 1 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon, you expect that there will be a little wait, but this was not the case. We played 18 holes in just under 4 hours, and I don’t think we saw another group until 17.

The course is challenging, but not because of the length. Undulating geeens keep you honest, and the threat of one huge water hazard keeps you on your toes.

Greens were a little bare in a few spots, and the goose grass on the collars detracted from the course conditions rating, but it was a great place to play and would definitely return.

I just won’t be buying beer there again. A six pack of Bud Light cost $25. I do understand that they have to make some money, since most refreshments are free, but that price was more than a little ridiculous.

You will love the course and the beauty of the lake

Very reasonably priced course located on the lake. Green fees include sandwiches and drinks. 12 of the 18 holes are on the water. Scenery is absolutely beautiful. Greens are in great shape. As are the fairways. Rough is a little deep so stay in the short grass.

Wonderful place to play!!!!

Played this course on 7/6 and we definitely enjoyed the round. The course is challenging with water on many of the holes. The staff was excellent in making sure we got started on time. Complimentary beverages was also a plus. Will definitely be back soon!

Great round

We hadn’t played here in a couple of years and boy has it improved. Great rate through Lake Lanier’s website included park entry, range balls and complimentary food and drinks.

Course was in fantastic shape. Nice fairways, firm fast greens. We played right at 4 hrs, and staff were friendly and helpful. Overall great experience. Can’t wait to go back.

Fun to play- great course.

The day I played the course was in excellent shape, well manicured all around. It was a late afternoon so I can't comment on pace of play, our twosome had no issues. The practice area is convenient and also well maintained. The staff was very friendly. A very nice experience, looking forward to returning in the near future.

Thank you for the review and feedback. Yes, we are a little tight for space in the short game practice area but with 10-12 minute tee time intervals there is usually enough space and time for everyone to get warmed up! Thanks again.

Awesome course and even Better staff

I have played Legacy on Lanier several times and I ALWAYS have a great time playing the course. The course is ALWAYS in excellent condition (fairways are lush, greens are smooth, fast fun, bunkers are fantastic and the entire course is always in great condition). The views of Lake Lanier throughout the entire round were fantastic. The clubhouse was small but nice. The practice area was really nice with unlimited balls and a good chipping green. The course itself was amazing. I highly recommend Legacy on Lanier. It is better than most of the private courses around the Gwinnett County area.

Overall great course.

Beautiful, Challenging Course

Beautiful course, but expect to lose a couple balls in the water. My biggest gripe is that they do not put out any water on the course on weekdays, nor does the clubhouse stay open past 5:00 pm. I was very thirsty at the end of my round!

Thanks for the review James. We are sorry that the clubhouse was closed when you finished. We definitely encourage golfers to take advantage of the complimentary bottled water offered in the clubhouse before their round and stock them up in the golf cart cooler provided. We do not have water coolers on the course any day of the week but we do have a water fountain at #6 tee / #7 green. After golfers are finished their round we encourage a visit to Legacy Lodge's Bullfrogs Bar & Grill or Margaritaville at Lanier Islands!

Prettiest views and course of any course in Atlanta Area

What a beautiful course! By far the prettiest views of Lake Lanier and the surrounding area of any course in Atlanta.

It is an EXCELLENT value as well. With your greens fees you get unlimited range balls, unlimited soft drinks unlimited hot dogs, unlimited bottled water, cookies, snacks, etc. The best value in the area.

The course requires accuracy off the tee as most of the holes are along the shores of Lake Lanier. If your tee shots are off target, chances are you will end up in Lake Lanier.

The practice area is very nice and has great practice facilities.

Legacy on Lanier is the must play course in the area and by far one of the best values in terms of course layout, course beauty, value (free drinks, food and snacks included in the greens fees).
