Prettiest Course & Views in all of Atlanta Area
Legacy on Lanier course is ALWAYS beautiful and a true joy to play. The staff is ALWAYS helpful and friendly. The staff always does whatever they can to help, assist and accommodate any reasonable request.
One of the best values anywhere. Greens fees also include all the drinks and food (hot dogs, sandwiches) you want. Best deal by far in Atlanta!
14 of the 18 holes are right along the shores of Lake Lanier and have beautiful views. You always see deer and other wild life while playing. A true treat to play.
Course is tight, but not too long and very fair. A number of holes require long carries to reach the fairways.
The greens and fairways are always in great condition. the greens are quick, smooth, and are well kept (very few non-repaired ball marks covering the greens like many of the local courses have).
Highly recommend to play.
Great Setting, Great Course
Having never played this course I was excited to dive right in. We had a 10:15 tee off and started exactly on time. Note: The starter holds the key to the cart until your start time. The course was in good condition and the greens played firm and fair. The lay-out around the shores of Lake Lanier Islands takes good advantage of a lot of over water shots. That being said, the course allows options to play aggressively to some of the greens directly over water (Some 250-300 yds.) and will reward that perfect shot with an eagle opportunity. Miss it and you will be hitting three from the tee-box. The same holes also give a good option to skirt the edge of the lake or shorter over water shots based on how lucky/good you are feeling. The course played really fair all day and the views over Lake Lanier are outstanding. Pro Tip: Food and beverages are free at the club house. Don't be afraid to grab water, drinks, sandwiches at the start or the turn. Enjoy!
Lake Lanier staff is ALWAYS helpful and friendly. Tee times also include drinks and food and the cost is reasonable - Best deal in Atlanta! Course is tight, but not too long and very fair. A number of holes require 200+ yard carry, so make sure you play the right tee boxes. Also, a few holes are right along Lake Lanier, so very picturesque.
A few tee boxes weren’t in the best shape today, but the fairways and greens were great. I’d highly recommend the course.
Legacy Golf Course
Great challenging course. We’ll be back to play again!
I took a friend this past Monday. It was a GRAND experience all-round. We aren't scratch players by any means, but navigated round pretty well. The course was in EXCELLENT shape, even though our weather hasn't been a blessing. The staff was "over the top" kind and gracious. We played on a "hot deal", but would have payed more for sure. We'll return, even though we are walkers. It's not a "walk" course.
Staff is great, conditions very good. Hot Dogs, drinks, free range warmup and putting green all included.
Lake Lanier Legacy golf club is beautiful and friendly. My guests and I were greeted at the entrance and graciously served. The course is well layout and greens were well maintained and rolled true. The vista of clean water against southern pines is pleasing to the eyes.
This place is great in general and truly in excellent condition. Great practice/warmup facilities. So many beautiful lake views and fun shots with very fast greens. Layout on the front nine Par 5's wasn't great but I like to hit my driver more than your average golfer. That did not detract from the overall experience however and I'll play there as much as possible going forward.
I was in town for the Masters. Great course. It is challenging while still being enjoyable. The greens are really fast. I liked the fact that all the food and beverage inside is included. My only complaint is that, I guess, the person inside the shop was running late. We couldn't use the restroom or access the pro shop until well after 7:15. The outside gentleman was apologetic, but didn't have a key.
Loved this course!
The course is built along side a beautiful private lake. 50 minute drive from Buckhead. Food and beverage is included. Course is challenging but well worth it. We golfed on Monday and there were only a few other couples out so pace was great. We’ll definitely be back.
It had been over ten years since I last played this course and it was in great shape coming out of winter. Lake Lanier is viewed and or in play on most holes. Love hole number 3 on cocktail cove. Greens were fast and true. Friendly and helpful staff. Food and beverage included. Hole in one contest on hole #10 for a $1000, included in green fees. Cameras on continuous loop capture the shot. This was a unique touch that makes it even more interesting. Great experience!
Fun, beautiful course with lots of challenges
I always love playing Lanier Islands golf course. The course course conditions are always great. The greens are quick, smooth and have very few non-repaired ball marks. The fairways are always in great condition along with the bunkers and other course conditions.
They have great practice facilities. You have a great view of Lake Lanier on most of the holes. There is always wildlife (deer, birds, etc.) which you see while playing.
I’ll definitely play again and recommend to others!
Thank you for the review, we are glad you enjoy playing the golf course. Looks like your tee time was 2:48PM on Saturday. It was a fairly busy afternoon and you were behind multiple foursomes. We are sorry that pace of play was slow for you. We aim for no more than 4 hours 30 minutes regardless of how busy the golf course becomes.
For this time of year the course was in great shape, green were rolling very smooth and pace was under 4 hours with them holding a tournament at the same time that we played. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. With all the rain that we received, they allowed 90 degree rule which for this senior was great. Some narrow fairways and windy most of the day kept us challenged throughout the round. Definitely would look to return again when everything is in bloow. Great background with Lake Lanier
Thank you for the great review and taking the time to add comments. Hope to see you back at the course soon.
