We had a great time, very good price ( golfnow price) there were several sinngles we had to let Passthrough. Some of the fairways need to be cut but that may be due to the first day of the week, also some greens need work. , but overall we had a good day on the golf course.
I really lucked out on having the course all to myself, mid-day on a summer Wednesday. The layout can be kind of confusing with a few blind tee shots and a cluster of greens kinda in the target line. Greens were fast with severe breaks, but I can't putt even if the green are flat! I was surprised at the amount of elevation changes, which made it fun to drive the ball on some holes. Ya gotta man up on 17 to get it over the trench (I barely cleared it with a 260 yd drive from the whites). Most of the fairways are tight, so I wore out my 21deg driving iron. But there are 2-3 holes where you can unleash the driver. Friends have told me of nightmarish 5+ HR rounds, which made me hesitate. But I was off by 12:30, done by 3:30. Only warm up area is a putting green so it took a few holes to work out the kinks. But with no one pushing me, I was able to hit 2-3 off each tee. Overall a fun day, better than having to work, right?
travel / business
20 years since playing course. Like changes and very challenging course. Will play again. $53 for weekend play a little steep.
signaling and bunkers
Holes needs signaling, so you will know where to aim and go.
Bunkers, sand looks like clay.
First time playing in about 20 years - skipped out on work and snuck a round - wow - nothing has changed - decent shape - decent layout - nice park like setting. A special old course - give it a shot.
Being a visitor to ATLANTA on business 2 or 3 times a year, have always played Bobby Jones because of hotel location. We have moved recently, giving me the chance to play N Fulton again. Like for like, I think N Fulton is better, longer, and the greens were in great shape (April'16) ... tee box's less so :-(
It was annoying.
I waited more than 20 minutes to check in and start playing.It was very very bad feeling.
Too expensive for the value you receive.
New management has increased the tee time prices. Okay for an inner city course. Condition is always an issue.
Management hasn't changed in 15 years. Prices haven't changed in 2. Not sure what you mean by any of that.
Bad place to play.
It took 6 hours to play. The ranger did not even try to pick it up. Grass and muddy. All around it was a bad place to play.
A Nice Outing
North Fulton is always a bit of a challenge because some of the fairways are relatively narrow. In addition if you are a skittish player this is not the place for you. The tee boxes in certain areas seem to be very closely situated so courtesy and understanding of the layout is critical. The length of the course is good for an intermediate golfer like me.
Nice intown course
Due to recent heavy rains the first 3 holes were closed. Several of the fairways were very tight requiring forced carries or layups. The greens are fast but fair with decieving undulations. Bunkers in fair condition condidering the amount of recent rains.
Ok Course in Atlanta
Course conditions are average. The layout could be confusing if you are a first timer. It will be a good course to get a proper round of golf in.
Decent round for the money
First time playing this course and the other reviews said the course was in good shape, which I don't totally disagree with but the fairways are dry and hard and the greens are hard offering no check. The layout of the course was a little wonky from hole to hole, but overall, for the money, it was a good round.
Great day for golf
Course was in good shape. Average layout but the greens are quick and moderately difficult to put on.
Way overpriced. The course is not very well maintained. You hit off dirt a lot, even in the fairways.
I have been playing here for 40+ years. Layout is decent with a couple of challenging holes. The history and designers of the course are very interesting and make it fun to play. However it is extremely overpriced. You can find a much better course at better price in may areas of metro.
Good - But...
Overall, the course was enjoyable to play. Not the most challenging course, but in good condition and well kept. Greens were challenging as all had more than one slope to them and all were very fast on the downhill. Only downside to this course is that there isn't a driving range for warm-up. I will play there again.
Not in good shape and not friendly staff
Course was pretty beat up in a lot of spots, wouldn't call most of the green fringes "fringes", and they were re sodding one hole that had been turned into a par 3. Lots of staff but none of them were very friendly or helpful.
We were the third group off the first tee on Sunday morning. We teed off 20 minutes late and the round took 5 hours! I would expect when I sign up for "Fast Play" the play is fast. The course sends the nine hole people off #10, so it slows down significantly when you make the turn.
North Fulton Course
Although they're reconstructing the cart path on #3, the course and greens were in great shape. The pace was somewhat slow though.
