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).

Easily one of the least enjoyable rounds of golf ever played. A miserable 5 hour round that included no help from staff to speed up pace of play. Two foursomes hitting multiple shots and not keeping up with groups ahead ruined the afternoon for all trailing parties. When you have to stand and wait for minutes between every single shot the staff must make changes. Did not see a marshal riding the course until the 17th green. Finally after the round was finished around 6:30 we were informed the club was already locked and were refused use of any restrooms while the cart attendant suggested using the woods next to the parking lot. This will be the one and only round ever played at this course.

We apologize for your poor experience on Saturday. There are several options for restrooms within the resort when the golf clubhouse is closed and we will be taking corrective action with the staff member involved. A course marshal was present from 8:00am to 4:00pm on that day and we are sorry your group's perception was that nothing was done. We have pace of play procedures in place and we will be thoroughly investigating the average pace of play for Saturday afternoon and taking action where possible. Please can you email our Director of Golf Brian Conley at bconley@lanierislands.com with your tee time and group name so we can investigate thoroughly.

What a beautiful course!

First of all, Legacy on Lanier is visually pretty dang intimidating. It makes up for that by not being overly long, but be ready to really commit to your tee balls and approach shots.

It was a nasty, wet day (with cart path only, as expected) in the middle of February, so I wasn't expecting too much conditions-wise. But even so, it wasn't great. With the really interesting mounding and green complexes, it would be a really fun test with firm and fast conditions. I can't wait to come back and check it out in dryer months. Tee boxes were quite bare. I'd be frustrated if I had paid full rate.

Really happy with the complimentary lunch & soft drinks as well as the practice facilities. Like I said, I can't wait to come check it out on a firm and fast day.

Come check it out!

Thank you for your review and course recommendation. Sorry about the weather! The course is pretty good to play all year round but a good tip is to play the weekend following the 680 The Fan Buck & Kincade Classic Golf Tournament which is held on a Friday in June. Come back and see us soon!

Played here a few times but never done a review. For a resort course in the fall in was in immaculate shape. The greens where really pure and the views of the lake on the back nine where real nice. The clubhouse was small but nice the range was really nice with unlimited balls and a good chipping green. The course itself was really nice 11,12,13,14,15 are really strong holes. There used to be 2 courses here however it went bankrupt about 12 years ago.

The area around the course and the resort are very nice and I thought that the Legacy Lodge was pretty nice. The food there was good and the view was amazing. Overall great course.

I really enjoyed the experience playing here. The course isn't particularly long but it definitely isn't for the faint hearted. There is ample water around as you would expect and at least one third of the holes involve a blind tee shot or one with a severe dog leg. I found the tee shots about as intimidating as any other course I've played this year.

The staff at the course were great and a super welcome touch was the provision of complementary blimpies and various non-alcoholic drinks both prior to teeing off and at the turn.

Maybe a little steep in terms of the cost relative to some of the other local tracks but still good value for money in my opinion. I'll be back

The course has many beautiful golf holes right along the shores of Lake Lanier.

It is great that included in your greens fees are range balls, drinks, snacks, hot dogs. The best deal around and the best course in the area.

The course is in great shape. The greens are smooth and fast.

Lake Lanier Islands is a first class place. I will definitely be back to play time and time again!!!

A great value as Lanier provides the cart, range balls, course and breakfast foods and hot dogs plus drinks in the price. The staff is always friendly and there was hardly anyone on the course which made for fast play. Fairways and greens are in immaculate shape. A fun and beautiful golf experience.

Great course, great layout. Many challenging holes around the lake. Only negative was the greens had been aerated 3 weeks before so the ran a bit slow. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Food and beverages included was a plus! Sucks for the cart girl.

Thank you for the review. Yes, the healing process usually takes 3-4 weeks therefore the speeds will typically be a quite a bit slower than usual.

DOWNSIDE. We lost multiple balls in the 'first cut off the fairway'. Perhaps it was Monday and the rough needed mowed or it was July/August in Georgia.

This is a very scenic course along the shores of Lake Lanier. Played from the Blue Tees and found the course moderately challenging with some carries over water. The greens were a bit rough from earlier aeration and could use some watering to help them heal faster. Friendly staff and a recommended course.

The weather was hot and muggy today, but since the course has so many beautiful golf holes right along the shores of Lake Lanier, there was a nice breeze most of the afternoon that helped make the day even that much better.

The course is in great shape. The greens are still coming in a little as far as being lush and nice with grass, but nothing to complain about.

It is also AWESOME that your greens fees includes all the drinks, snacks, hotdogs, Blimpie sandwiches you want. It is a first class place. I will definitely be back to play time and time again!!!
