Course conditions where pretty good, greens above rolling average for a public course. Pace of play was slow.
One of my favorite public courses in the ATL area
Couse was in great shape. The starter, pro shop guy and the whole staff there are always so friendly and accommodating. I will be back.
We played after it had rained all week. It was cart path only and cold but we thoroughly enjoyed our round. Even though we had heavy rains this week, I thought the course was in great shape and the greens rolled pretty fast and true. Will definitely be back.
Good layout, bad management (Member "mulligan scramble" on a Saturday?)
Overall good layout and conditions other than #3 green (chemical mishap) and not raking any bunkers prior to the day's play. It had rained the day prior so it was path only however "someone" had organized a "2 man best ball" for the members starting first thing Saturday AM. After inquiring about it with the Marshall, he informed us basically each player hits 2 balls on every shot then chooses which of those 2 he/she wants to play from next (essentially a mulligan on every shot, not your typical "best ball" format)! As you can imagine, VERY slow play at nearly 5.75 hours (918 start finished just after 3P and no stop at turn)! We planned for 5 hours based on reviews and one of our players in the foursome ended up having to leave at the 5 hour mark to make a prior commitment that afternoon.
I was baffled that there was no gps in the carts and no yardages on sprinkler heads/drains, just your 100-150-200 markers. Overall yardage is deceiving at 6356 (white/blue) since most of the holes play at least 1 club, at times up to 3 clubs longer because of elevation changes. Short to no carry required off most tees other than a few of the par 3's. Good mix of holes and doglegs to challenge most any player.
Would recommend to call ahead prior to booking to make sure no tournaments scheduled the day you are trying to play!
Good Course Definitely worth the round
I found it somewhat difficult mostly on certain holes. You do have to be in the fairway which is fine for the most part. But the Putting was much faster than I thought and you really have to read the greens.
It was fun! There was probably three holes that really challenge you. We will be back. The only thing to look out for is there are a lot of wasps everywhere and they are really attracted to the pins that yellow flag had a wasp on it every hole.
Got to the 9th hole two groups waiting at the tee box, one on the fairway and a five some on the green with a 6 year old enough said
Another 5 hour round. Pace of play continues to be an issue.
At the end of the day it’s poorly managed. Either figure out how to get people through your course by asking them to play faster or skip a hole or sell fewer slots. It’s not rocket science - it’s simply a matter of management hiring rangers and enabling them to do their job. There’s no reason in the world this course can’t turn a full house in four hours.
One of my favorite courses since moving to Atlanta. Course was in good condition and played in about 3.:10 minutes on a Sunday!
Thank you for your kind words. We are glad that you enjoy playing here and look forward to having you back in the future.
St Marlo Staff
Always enjoy playing St Marlos
St Marlos is one of the courses in our "rotation". Great layout, typically in excellent shape, with some choppy tee boxes (#8). The bummer this time was the greens were aerated/punched a few days ago and was NOT reflected on Golf Now. The greens were slow and bouncey.....i would avoid for the next 2-3 weeks.
Fun Course with lots of interesting holes
This course will entertain you. I enjoy the layout, except when hole #9 is cart path only!
Thank you for the comment and we are glad that you enjoyed your time and looking forward to having you back.
St Marlo Staff
Does not disappoint.
Course was in great shape. Greens were fast and true with some occasional bumps and bruises from the heat (to be expected this time of year). Even with speed, the greens were receiptive to good shots.
Only blemish on the course are the bunkers. Very little sand in the bunkers made escaping the sand a shot in the dark.
In all, as long as shots stay out of the green side bunkers, this is a very fun course and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
We are glad you had a great and appreciate your feedback!
Challenging and beautiful
Staff in the pro shop were friendly and gave us the option of going out early which we took. The course is absolutely beautiful with a number of outstanding signature holes that combine water, stone bridges and interesting topography. The course was in fantastic shape with the only blemish being the bunkers. They have sand but it was extremely hard and many were filled with a lot of debris. Could be from the recent storms but it hasn't rained for a few days. Worth a drive as this is a top notch course!!
Always enjoyable to play
Love the course, great layout and overall in great condition. Tee boxes & fairways are in great condition. However, the greens are still overly pockmarked. so they are a bit bumpy. Clearly golfers are not fixing their divots and maintenance isn't doing enough to slow/reverse it....otherwise love playing the course, if the greens were better I would come more often.
Great layout - Fix the Sand Traps!
Overall I really like this course. Layout is excellent. It offers plenty of options in terms of difficulty to match everyone's playing ability. Staff are very friendy.
However, the sand traps are in bad shape. There is grass growing in well over half the traps. Some of them are 20 to 30% covered in grass. Many were also very hard, almost like concrete. I get there was rain but they have not seen a rake in a long time. This is just not acceptable for a course of this level and cost.
I recommended this course for friends and was embarrassed by the condition of the traps. I will try again but it will be some time before I do.
Please get this fixed. It's bringing down an otherwise amazing course.
Course nice but some quirky holes
Course is in good shape, the layout for some holes is a little quirky - 9th hole with severe elevated green is prime example. Pace of play was an issue, waited almost every shot, multiple holes we watched the group in front of us tee off....4:45 round on a weekday.
Great course within a gated community. You MUST keep the ball in the fairway to have a chance at a good score. A moderate course for shot makers. I will be back again and again. They were VERY stringent on pace of play even with carts restricted to the path. You MUST play “ready golf”.
