Tight but fun

The Lakemont course was in good condition, greens a little slow but true. Lakemont side more challenging than Stonemont side.

Needs TLC

The condition of this course has deteriorated since I last played it. There are a few quirky holes on which you can lose strokes if you don’t know how to play them. These negatives are offset by the spectacular setting on the front nine. A coyote joined us on one of the holes- I don’t know if this is a common.occurrence.

Could be a great experience with some improvements

To begin, I knew that it would cost $15 to enter the park, but I feel this is a ridiculous fee to pay when I was clearly there just to play golf.

First impression - I handed my bag to one of the outside staff members who promptly placed my bag on cart. As I was walking towards the pro shop, I heard a "crash" and one of the other members of the outside staff had ran another cart directly into the back of cart/bag, to which everyone laughed it off...not damage to the equipment, but not what you want to see.

The inside staff could have cared less if I was there and seemed bothered when I told them it was my first time playing and if there was anything I should know about the property/course/range.

For $86, I would expect to get more than 19 golf balls to hit at the range. My playing partner received an expired code, which he found out only once we got to the range. He called the pro shop to tell them, and was put on hold and eventually hung up on. When he called back and spoke to the operator, she too could not get the pro shop on the line. As you may or may not know, the driving range is not close to the pro shop and at this point we were about 10-15 minutes from our tee time.

The starter (Lawrence) literally did not say one word to us and acted as if he would rather be anywhere but on the first hole of Lakemont. I asked him about course conditions, greens conditions, expected pace of play with cart path only and I did not get one response. So far $100 in, this is my experience before I even hit my first tee shot.

Having been formally in the golf industry, as an assistant golf course superintendent, the condition of the greens were not worth what we paid for the round. Being the end of March, I was expecting the bentgrass greens to be nearly immaculate. I was surprised to find how slow, fuzzy and inconsistent they were, not to mention how there was more Poa on many of them than Bentgrass.

All in all, not the experience I was hoping for the cost to play.

Good time

It was a cold windy day when we played. We followed a foursome and did wait occasionally but not long. The course was wet from recent rain so carts on paths only which made for a lot of walking. This is a beautiful course. Vistas are magnificent. Front nine is fairly open and requires choosing shots. The back nine is more difficult. Because of rain many fairways were difficult to walk on and waders would have helped. Perhaps the other course on Stone Mountain would be better.

Tuesday at Lakemont

Staff was friendly and professional, course played quick with no waiting. There was no water on the entire course, every station was dry. No beverage cart either...disappointing! We wanted to have a beer after the round and the entire clubhouse was closed at 4:30pm...ouch!

Most scenic course in Atlanta

This course is absolutely stunning to the eye. I'd give it 5/5 if the greens were in a little better shape.

GREAT FRONT 9...AVERAGE BACK 9

The front 9 has some of the most beautiful scenery with Stone Mountain in the backdrop, water and beautiful views. The back nine however, lacked the views of the front, but that didn't mean a lack of challenges. One par 5 was straight as an arrow 504 yards and had a wind tunnel blowing in my face the entire hole. Took a drive, 2 5 woods, and a 5 iron just to get it to a pitch-able area! But I ended up shooting 3 or 4 over, the greens are in decent condition, definitely seen worse on a golf course, but the rolls are for the most part true and I will definitely be back.

The only negative is having to pay the park fees or have an annual membership just to be able to pay to play the course.

Needs some updates

For $50 they need to update the golf carts. They need to add the GPS system in the carts. Some of the greens have crab grass growing in them.
