Too close to the highway
As the golf course is situated very close to the highway, the noise level is very irritating when you play the first 9 holes and the last few holes in the 2nd 9. Beside, the grounds on the fairways are hard and lack grass which made iron play difficult. However, most of the greens are rolling well. Overall, the course layout is tight and challenging.
Too much Red Tape!!
It took forever to get checked in. Everything is manual except playing. The checkin person has a clipboard that she writes all your info on (Name, address , phone number, who you playing with and etc.) You have to provide almost everything except your SSN. The little manager is terrible. No customer service skills whatsoever! Very rude. After all of that was out of the way the course was in good shape. The greens were very good and the fairways were well maintained.. Even though the course was in good shape, I will not play there again because of the red tape and the rude experience. There are too many good courses around that appreciate my $$$.
Nice local course, great value
Never played here before, but really enjoyed the round. It is a tight course which makes it a good challenge since the course is not overly long. For a muni, it is really well kept and there were lots of guys continuing to work on the course while we played.
I would advise playing with someone who knows the course.
Staff was VERY friendly.
Great Course, Recently Re-opened
All of the reviews were 2+ years old, since the course closed down for construction work and it just re-opened, so wanted to leave a recent review.
Overall- really fun course. Greens were in excellent condition. It rained hard the night before, so the cart paths were swamped, but the fairways were pretty good too. A few bald spots here and there, but they're working on them. Fun layout, relatively difficult to lose a ball, bunkers were in great condition. For the price, it's a great spot and I plan to come back next week.
Driving range is really nice and flat, staff were very friendly, and I'm a big fan.
Nobody should be allowed to play here.
Looks more like a cow pasture. Fairways grass is at least 6inches high with season long clippings left there. The greens, hahaha, they're a joke. They ARENT PUTTABLE!
If you like playing to lose balls in there fairway, this is your go to place. They should be embarrassed to let anyone play. Needs 2+ years of maintenance at least to make it any kind of worth it. Please, learn from my mistake and stay clear of this course
Didn't know much about the course upon booking a Saturday morning tee time via GolfNow. After playing two holes, going back into the clubhouse, and asking for a refund, I honestly am shocked that GolfNow has this course listed on its app/website. It's UNPLAYABLE. The grass is out of control, the tee boxes unmarked, and the greens are nearly non-existent. I kid you not, four guys who are decent at golf collectively lost five balls in the first two holes... in the FAIRWAY. I'm not kidding, after we realized it wasn't going to get much better, we resorted to going back in and asking for a refund, and thankfully, the man working was kind enough and understood how bad the track was, that he gave us all a full refund. The fact that it costs $30 to play a round here is laughable. If kept the way it is, it should be free of charge for anyone to go out there and hit some balls. I wish GolfNow would refund my $16 booking fee. I don't usually leave reviews but feel this is necessary.
Worst golf course ever
I'm not surprised that this is a golf course owned by Dekalb County government. It was an embarrassment and is without a doubt the worst course I've ever seen. I believe an adequate description would be that of a golf course in New Orleans one week after hurricane Katrina. Didn't even finish the round. Got a refund/credit
No longer a golf course.
I was very disappointed. This was the 1st golf course I played, back in the early 90's. We attempted to play only 9 hole, but could only play the 1st. (Condition of the course was misleading). The fairways were roughs and the greens were fairways. Grass hasn't been cut for months. Would lose balls in fairway. Trees were cut down laying in the middle of the fairways. It's was a big waste of money.
Course poorly maintained
Condition of course appears totally neglected.
Fairway grass high, trees blocking cart path, and greens nearly bare.
Attempted to play the course on a Sunday. The grass looked as if it had not been cut in weeks. As we attempted to take a couple of practice swings on the driving range before our tee time, we couldn't because the grass was knee high. There were cut down trees on every hole, some laying across the fairways. Every sand trap was full of knee high grass. Overall the course was was in terrible condition and we only attempted to play 6 holes before calling it quits! The conditions on this course was the absolute worst I've ever seen.
SUGAR CREEK CONDITIONS
this is a very nice course but it is not being maintained properly. Staff is absolutely the best! Very friendly but management of this course is obviously very poor. Fairway grass continues to be too high. You spend more time looking for golf balls in the fairway that actually playing golf. Bunkers have weeds 3 ft high!! It is my understanding tax payers are paying to keep this course open? This golf course should be properly maintained or shut down
Golf Course or Cow Pasture?
Dekalb County should close this course and save a few bucks. If you are not going to keep the fairways cut, tee boxes marked, greens and bunkers maintained, then why keep the course open? Seems like you the course is just staying open to generate a little revenue, but nothing is going back into course maintenance.
At first I thought it was just me, but after reviewing other player comments, it looks like I'm not the only one.
Just close it and save yourself any further embarrassment.
I hate giving negative reviews, but this course gave me no other choice. There is no need to provide a response from the course staff. Looks like they are all they are all the same from the reviews I've read.
Thanks and have a great day. Once again, just close the course and stop wasting money.
Don't pay full price
It is sad to see that Dekalb county has let this course go to cow pasture. This used to be a really nice track, but they have done nothing to keep it maintained. Greens are awful, bunkers overgrown, fairways are like first cut of rough even right after mowing. Overall not in playable condition. Maybe $10 bucks is worth a practice round, but full price no way. Wish the county would put some effort back into this place.

This course was in terrible condition when we played. The grass on the front 9 had not been cut in a while. Weeds were growing on the greens and there were bare spots. The back 9 was better, however. Can't see playing this course again unless major improvements are made.
The last time we played here the course was in good shape. Was very surprised at the poor condition this time. Would have asked for a refund after the first hole, but was paid through GolfNow.
golf course need lots of work
golf course need lots of work
green was not green
tee box was mass
cart driveway need work
don't want to play anymore
Poor course condition
Terrible course conditions.
The fairways were not cut and no different than the roughs. Greens were bare of grass in many spots causing your ball to hop skip and jump.
Lost several balls in the middle of the fairway.
Go here if you are just looking to practice your swing.
Let it go
I dont know if they plan on shutting down or not, but they have completely let it go. Worst greens ever, and they dont even bother with the bunkers. Its a free for all. I played it several times a couple of years ago and it wasnt that bad
Should be ashamed
Had a couple of buddies come out to play with me who were not from the area and I was embarrassed. Back nine closed and only found this out at the counter paying the green fees, ankle high fairway grass, tee boxes with no markers or hard to find them because of high grass. Un playable course at present. We abandoned the effort and went else where. Why has Dekalb neglected this property so? As a relatively new golfer in Dekalb it is a travesty that the county would treat it's county members this way..... Would this sort of thing happen in Gwinnett? Of course not.
