Enjoyed but felt it was overpriced

Good condition for the most part, a few areas showing some less than optimal turf conditions. Considering the routing, conditions, and amenities a nice course but not worth the $117 prepaid rate. The course used to include complimentary food and beverages which used to maybe justify the high rate. Without that, the value is not really inline with the price being charged in my opinion.

Gorgeous course

One of the most scenic courses in GA, with stunning views of lake Lanier. Good to see the staff and players practicing social distancing. The free food area was closed but they offered free bottles of water and beverages and hotdogs at the start/turn

Difficult but fair

CPO, from yesterday's rain slowed it down a bit, and some tight lies as cooler weather is starting. Greens were very fast and rolled nicely. Good practice facility and the clubhouse amenities are the cherry on the sundae. Very enjoyable.

What could have been

What could have been the most peaceful morning of golf kinda was interrupted by a man on a tractor blowing leaves. It seemed as if he fallowed me around the front nine. I get he is just doing his job, but god was it annoying. The course is amazing, with holes on the banks of lake Lanier. The greens are fast and very difficult. Anyway, great day out there. Blowers suck

Great time except for check in

Awesome day to play. I registered online about 2 hours before the tee time I picked.. When I got there, the older fellow, kina short and thin behind the cash register said they had no record of my tee time. and charged me about $20 more than the online rate (I was paying for 2)..i complained and he was rude, so I sucked it up and moved on, hence this review. I know my registration went through because I received this email asking for my review of my time at the course.

Awesome Views

The views here are awesome. Almost every hole has a great view. I think I took more pictures than swings.
As for the golf, the course was in good shape, lots of shots over water, which I love. Greens rolled nice. The only issue was lack of good yardage markers. The cart had satellite but the yards were way off. My cart would say about 60 yds farther than my partners cart & his phone said 20 yds shorter than his cart. So I flew several greens and came up short on others with good shots. I guess if you're serious about it you probably own a range finder anyway. I still had a great time even if I struggled getting the right yardage.
Free pre made blimpie subs, hot dogs & fountain drinks in clubhouse but no restaurant on site. Small bar for alcohol. Highly recommend playing here.

Best course in the area

I’ve played this course a few times and I believe it to be the best course in the area. Conditions were great where some other courses were looking dry. Greens in perfect nick and who could forget the free snacks and soda.
Perfect atmosphere and a great layout.

Great course, service ruined the experience

Our foursome takes an annual trip south to enjoy one last big weekend of golf every September. Legacy at Lake Lanier has been in the rotation since the beginning. It's one that we kickoff the weekend with and all really love the course. A fun challenge with awesome waterfront holes and a great lodge with onsite lake house accommodations.

But this year was different. The problems began upon arrival, when we were coldly greeted by a starter who claimed we did not have a tee time. OK, stuff happens, but I have the email confirmation of the booking, which was done directly on the course's website over a month in advance. That confirmation was enough to get us out, but it shouldn't have been an issue considering the course was literally wide open. The starter at the desk was combative about the situation and did not seem interested in having us there at all. The attitude continued with the ranger who really laid into us at the turn. His claim was that we had already played 18 and were trying to scam an additional nine. As absurd as that accusation was, we rolled with it as we were having a great time and simply wanted to finish our round before dark. At said turn, the clubhouse was locked, no restrooms, no food, no bevs.....nothing. Locked up and empty, there was no going inside, even though the round was to include said refreshments. That's when the ranger (or cart guy, bright green/yellow shirt) began yelling at our group. He was obviously drunk and rambling (with profanity) about us trying to cheat an extra 9 holes. It was embarrassing and really left a bad taste in our mouths. The shame of it all, is it is literally one of our favorite courses of the rotation and as mentioned, has become part of our annual trip. Having spent my entire career in the customer service industry, I was beside myself. I couldn't imagine ever talking to a customer the way he did to us. Completely and totally unacceptable. If one of my employees treated a customer that way, they would no longer be employed...end of story.

It will be very hard for us to return knowing we, for some reason, were not welcome. We are all confused and upset by the situation, as we're not trouble makers. Rather, we're a group of four college buddies whom have managed to keep this tradition alive well into our 40s. We're not obnoxious kids, wild partiers, or the type that scam anything. We're four professionals whom manage to get a weekend away from our careers and families each September to treat ourselves to a nice outing.

It was extremely unfortunate that we were treated as such. And while I'd like to recommend this course to others, it will come with a warning to do so with caution, as you may not be welcome, and even worse, may even be accused of trying to scam extra holes when you are simply trying to make the turn....
