Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Georgia
I had not played the course in the last 3 years and was extremely disappointed with what I found. The Frog has always been one of my favorite courses in the area because of the design and condition - one of the few courses with bent grass greens. The course I played did not resemble the course of old as either or both management and the superintendent have just stopped working the course. First, the bunkers had not been groomed with many of them having weeds and grass growing in them. For example, holes 14 and 15 have fairway bankers running down the right side of the hole and now about all you can see in the bunkers is vegetation. Also, the once pristine greens have weeds growing in them and the edges are no longer clean with Bermuda grass growing into the greens. I hope Troon Golf will begin to pay attention to this course and bring it back to its former glory.
I enjoyed this course, wide open fairways, friendly staff. They had just ariated the greens and they were very sandy. Still enjoyed our round, pace of play was great, even though we were behind 1 foursome and another twosome, we had a great pace of play. I will be back once the greens have grown back in.
Not great value price
Greens had plenty of weeds and unfixed ball marks
The sand in traps was thin with weeds and fabric coming up from bottom
Over priced in my opinion
Could be such a great place with some funding
I came back to play The Frog after about 15-18 years away. I remembered it being such a great course. Well, it's still an amazing layout but unfortunately the course is in shambles. Weeds/crabgrass have inundated some of the greens. The bunkers havent been raked or maintained in some time and are being overrun with grass and weeds and some parts of the course looked like they hadn't been mown in weeks. For the most part, the fairways and bent greens are very playable and in decent shape but the course is very rough around the edges. My guess is they just don't have enough money to properly maintain the course. If they can get the funding this would again be worth the drive. For now, if you live close and get a deal, play it. If youre driving from Alpharetta like me, you may want to consider other options.
I used to treat myself to a round at this course. Hadn’t played here in a year or so, man, the greens used to be slick and true now they are spongy and have weeds. Bunkers have weeds growing in them, need more sand. This is a Fazio course!! Just truly shocked at the condition.
This course has gone Downhill
This course used to be one of the nicer courses in the metro Atlanta area. It used to be immaculate. It has been a few years since I’ve played there, but I decided to make the drive to play there this past weekend. I noticed quickly that this course has gone down hill with their maintenance. The bunkers are atrocious. The liner of the bunker is showing in many places. There are weeds and plants and grass growing in the bunkers throughout. The greens have goose grass growing in them. There are weeds around the Teebox and were some bare spots as well. It is nothing like what it used to be. It is definitely not worth the money or the drive anymore. It’s quite sad as it was a very good course. The layout remains challenging. The fairways are in pretty good shape.
It was so bad that I took some pictures to upload onto Golfnow. But the golf now app is malfunctioning and not allowing me to upload them.
Haven’t played it in about four years, used to be such a great track .... The bunker condition is laughable , greens are riddled with weeds and slow....Used to be one of the best maintained courses in the area.
It rained the whole front 9 but the course was in great shape. Had a great time and played well on the back 9.
Really like The Frog...wish it's members did
Great course layout. Provides a lot of risk/reward. Placement in the fairways and the greens are key to scoring well.
Fairways are in great shape. Bunkers are okay and the greens were a little hairy, but they rolled true. (little slow) Probably getting to be that time of year for a green punch.
Tee boxes are kid of thin as others have mentioned, but the weather here has provided challenges I'm sure.
*Only reason for 4 stars* What surprises me is that the members (or those who play regular) do not repair divots on the greens! Maybe The Frog should add $1 to green fees and give every player a divot tool when they play? Play a video on the golf cart on "how to repair divots"? Still, it won't fix lazy...
All this said, I still highly recommend The Frog. You will not be disappointed. Beautiful course. Great layout.
Love this course pretty good layout and greens always in tip top condition.
It was crowded, but everyone was really nice, helpful and accommodating!! Definitely recommend this place!!
2nd time playing... still needs work on the tees
Overall The Frog is a nice course. The fairways are well maintained and the greens are large and roll true. The only issue I have is the tee boxes. It really detracts from the overall quality of the course.
Disappointed with the course conditions
Its been awhile over a year and a new management co. has taken over I understand and the course needs a lot of work. First of all, it looks if no pre-emergence was put down because the fairways and around the greens are full of weeds, the bunkers have no or very little sand, but the one saving grace was the greens (bent) were perfect and rolling probably 11 to 12. The course is one of the best layouts in the greater Atlanta area but right now I would not make the long drive out there again to play it unless a lot of work is done. It's really a shame.
This place is Awesome! Staff is friendly and course is in wonderful shape! Can't wait too go back!
A nice Fazio design...but needs a bit of maintenance on the tees
This is a very nice Fazio designed course just 30 minutes west of Atlanta off I-20. The course had very nice greens but the tee boxes need some work. As a first time player, I appreciated the directional signage that were just in the right spots
Bunkers define most of the fairways and the greens drop off the edges on most holes with a shot just off the green on the fly rolling 10-20 yards away...then requiring an pitch uphill in most cases.
When I played the front nine I started to wonder why it was called The Frog as there is very little water in play (just on 4 & 8). But once you hit the back nine there are 7 holes in a row (11-18) where water is in play -- a lake, pond or stream. For example, the par 3 16th has a stream short and right of the green and the par 4 17 has a stream crossing the fairway about 30 yards short of the green. I never saw any frogs but there were plenty of wild turkeys -- visible and calling.
The only real hard green to putt was the 18th which has three tiers. Most of the others have some level of break but nothing too dramatic.
All in all, they just need to do some work on the tee boxes to make this a more even experience. ALSO>>> they have a senior rate for those over 55. Nice extra.
This is a very good golf course just a long ways out from Atlanta but well worth the drive. Just needs warm weather for the Bermuda to pop.
IT HAS BEEN VERY WET THIS YEAR, VERY NICE COURSE IN THE SUMMER OR WHEN ITS NOT SO WET GREAT COURSE
Frozen and still FANTASTIC!!!!
23 degrees on my first attempt challenging "The Frog" burrrr. Well stocked pro shop, Large bar with plenty of food and beverage options overlooking the practicing area and beautiful downhill par 5 finishing hole. If you need to warm up before your round, which was a MUST for me today. The facilities allow the player to prepare for all aspects of his or her game. Driving range, putting green, chipping, and greenside bunker practice are efficienty separated/spaced out so congestion of players I imagine rarely a issue. Much like the very expensive PGA/Private golf clubs I so rarely get to experience .Empty golf course today ( For obvious reasons ). Which allowed me to get to the turn in a hour and 5 min. Took my time to enjoy my surroundings through the back. Could of easily finished 18 in well under 2 and a half hours do to nobody braving the fridged temperature. The course is in winter condition meaning Dormant fairway grass dead areas here and there. Teeboxes and greens all in pretty good shape. "The Frog" is maintained better than most but, you can tell the track is a public course do to the common hackers and haters that won't fill divits, repair pitch marks, or SIMPLY rake a bunker. I'm physically disabled and I can still fix grass and dirt. I mean come on!!!! REALLY???? 90 degree rule givin to me by staff. Which was much appreciated. Could of easily been cart path only do to soft areas throughout the course. Mad props to designer and grounds crews for using surroundings and natural run off to keep course as dry as it is currently. I was most impressed with the attention to detail in design to challenge even the most seasoned low handicap/scratch golfer.Every club in your bag can be used. And if I missed my target much like a links course I was in a well placed hazzard. "The Frog" is also a great place for the higher handicapers do to pretty generous landing area's off the tee, fairly short but testy par 3's, and large but undulating greens on majority of course. Beginning golfers will struggle do to this is definitely not a "grip n rip" and aim for the flag golf course. My only complaint besides hacker's and haters, is The golf carts have gps technology but mine wasn't functioning. Even though not needed because by FAR the best yardage marked course I've ever seen. Yardage is marked everywere. Tee box's, fairways, cart paths and sprinkler heads. This place is fantastic!!!!!!
