Well Done!

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.

Beautiful Golf

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.

Great condition

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.

Beautiful!

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.

Challenging Course

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

Gorgeous course

I have played wonderful courses in the Columbia N.C. area, but so far none compare to the beauty of this course. Though tough and ate some of my balls, the views and the beauty of the course itself made the time and effort worth every cent spent to play on this challenging layout.

Legacy at Lanier

I first played this course back in the early 1990s when I moved to Atlanta. This course had closed and the next one around the lake remained open. Now they switched and this course is open again and the course past the water park has closed. This course has 13 of 18 holes either over or around water. Very playable layout with some challenging holes for carrying over water and placement of the drive. The staff is pleasant and courteous yet keeping a good pace of play. This is one of my favorite Atlanta courses.

Beautiful scenery and challenging holes

I try to play Legacy about every 2 months and it was cool and windy but absolutely beautiful by the lake. I can't say enough about how nice and helpful the staff was and always seems to be. Greens were in great shape and for a cold winter course was in great condition. The scenic views on this course make it seem like a vacation getaway. And the other feature is included with your fee is a lunch of hot dogs, drinks, chips and more. Definitely worth the drive with some very challenging holes.
