The condition was poor. They said the dry conditions was the reason . The bunkers were horrible with just the red clay diet and no sand. ..

Great

Everyone we met was enjoyable to talk to and seemingly happy to be working at this club. I'll be back for sure! This has been one of the hot summers in Atlanta and in-spite of that, on the course, the grass was still green, and the greens weren't burned like many of the rather expensive courses in the Atlanta area. That means, someone working at this course knows what they are doing. (Can you imagine, a team that makes it work..) Twas a good choice for the day. Why you say, cause any day golfing is better than.... You know what I mean. I drove away from Lake Spivey Golf Club happy 'fore' the day. Get it!

Lake Spivey Coming Back

Improvementa to course are coming along nicely. New clubhouse, nice fountains, cart path improvements, etc. Played today after a torrential downpour yesterday. Of course it was cart path only, but the fairways were decent. They are really making an effort to get the greens in good shape. Next spring they should be terrific. Tee boxes still need attention. A little pricey, but they need the revenue to pay for the improvements. If they continue, Lake Spivey will be a gem once again.

Work in progress

Greens are extremely slow and in need of repair.

New management is working to improve but it will be some time before Spivey is it's old self.

Still a good course and enjoyed the round.

Comeback Kid

Lake Spivey is undergoing a face lift and complete make over very needed.

The new management is friendly and accommodating.

The pro shop and restaurant is closed for this make over, they do have a cart on course for refreshments.

Overall the course was looking good a lot of clumps from mowing and the greens are very slow all taken into consideration a good round. Look forward to completion of course.

Fun course

The starter is always positive vibes. The new carts have screens that will tell the player if they are playing slow as fk, and will also power down in certain areas allowing for better conditions in the future. Spicy Spivey has always held true to the roots. Swing on!

new ownership under construction

To begin with they flipped the sides. The old front is now the back 9, so you finish at the clubhouse. The clubhouse is closed for complete renovation. The course is being improved from previous owners neglect. New expanded grounds crew working diligently to bring this old track back to its glory days. Give them a few more months and it will be worthy of its top rating again. You can see ongoing improvements everywhere. repaving cart paths, new retention walls, adding sand to bunkers, renovated on course bathrooms. They have also added a few fountains in the ponds for a new look, sound, and ambiance. New mowers have improved the greens tremendously. Greens are soft and slow, but roll consistently. greens have a few areas of dead grass, but hopefully the new grounds crew will be able to resolve that issue. Increased greens fees have reduced amount of play they receive, but that will be a good thing for the course and the golfers who choose to tee it up at Lake Spivey.

Lots of upgrades underway

This is a nice challenging course in good condition. It is recently under new management and there are lots of upgrades underway, including a renovated clubhouse. Staff is friendly and attentive and the greens and fairways are well maintained. Hope to visit again soon and see the finished upgrades.

Calm before the storm

played a round before the tropical storm hit metro Atlanta . they are I the process of renovating the clubhouse so there is a trailer that substitutes for now. They added a walking trail for the surrounding subdivision and it looks very nice, dies not interupt course play. They are seeding throughout the fairways and tee boxes but again no play interruption. Good value for the money.

Best Shape Ever

Lake Spivey GC is in the best shape ever. It has always been one of my favorite courses in the area, but it is about to reach a new peak. The course has a new owner and management team. The course is in tip top shape and still improving. Got some of the best greens in Metro Atlanta. The clubhouse is currently under reconstruction...in about 45 days, it’ll have a remodeled clubhouse with a brand new Resturant and workout facility. Cuzos to the new owner for all the great improvements already made and current being made. This is a must play course if you haven’t played it before or in a while.

Don't waste a drive if you know what I mean

Worse course I have played out of 20 this Spring. Totaly under construction. Distractions all over the course. Fairways terrible at best. Green terrible at best. I give it a 1 on the visual. Overall not worth the 30 minute drive. trust this review.
