Best Value in Atlanta, Don't tell anyone

I love this course. You have to drive it straight or it will be a hard day. Greens could be frimer and faster. Best value in Atlanta. Driving range is only for loosening up.

We are looking into it?

To be honest, I haven't played the course. I am scheduled to play in a tournament here and so wanted to read reviews before I went. I am concerned because all of the problems that are current have been brought up many times and there doesn't seem to have been any change in the bunker, or course, or food service quality. The responses by management seem perfunctory and not followed up by any effort. Well see I guess, but the pattern seems pretty obvious. Doesn't make me look forward to playing there and would cancel if this wasn't money I am donating to charity.

Good layout, poorly kept, ash trays for bunkers

Fairways were decent, greens were bumpy and slow, rough was super deep which was good motivation to be accurate off the tee. The actual course design was fine with some interesting dog legs and a couple uphill tee shots which made for an interesting round. My problem and why it gets a 2 instead of 3 was the bunkers were dang near empty, barely any sand was left, weeds were growing in the bottom, and most had more than a few cig butts in them. It was clear the course was either hard on money or just didn't care to maintain more than cutting grass.

Pace of Play

The pace of play was horrible, they had a tournament starting up and we were forced to allow them to play through. I think that they should have either closed the course or refund our money.

Could be so much better

Back 9 is beautiful and the course is in good shape overall. Though not a single trap was raked and they had grass growing in them. Grass had not been cut in a while and all the grass trimmings were thick. Greens were in great shape.

Would not go back though if I found something of similar rate.

I thoroughly enjoyed today’s round. My only concern is that the bunkers need significant work.

Good course for the price

The tee boxes were ok, some of them had been moved away from areas with lots of use. Fairways in very good condition as well as most greens.

The bunkers look like they haven't been maintained in a while.

Challenging but fun

Good course for the layman. Par 4's and 5's are fairly long. Green are well kept but the speed can be deceiving. The bunker conditions are horrible with weeds or plain mud being the playing area.

Club house getting better

I noticed the club house has been cleaned up and no longer a sea of used balls and old, beat up old clubs. The staff was informative and friendly. I was able to get a sandwich, also there is a beverage cart on the course.While I was there a new chipping green was being installed. The greens were a little slow but in great shape. My group played in 4.5 hours on a Sunday morning. The value and condition of the course can not be beat.

Good but could be much so much better

This course is a good layout with greens that were In great shape. A little slow but I think they are close to aerating them. The staff that we saw was very nice . They just need more of them and more course maintenance. The need to institute a program of retirees that play for free to be volunteer Marshalls on the weekends. Pace of play was very slow. And course could be excellent with more money put into everywhere but greens. Will playbit Will probably try to play midweek and not on weekend
