I played this course on a Friday afternoon. Pace of play was great, not a lot of players were out there. It is a long course with wide fairways, huge bunkers with that dense soft powdery sand, and cleaned out tree lines so you can find your ball on errant drives and play from the pine straw.

The greens are ridiculously tough. Its like putting on glass. The greens are so fast, it gets rather frustrating and detracts from the enjoyment of your round. I hit a 20ft putt on the 16th green that missed the cup 5 in. left, rolled 2 ft. past the hole, caught a ridge, rolled 30 ft. down the green, then off the green and down a hill into a lake! Yep. I putted into a water hazard. It was a first for me. We had to put my playing partner at the bottom of the hill, b/c every drop just rolled back down the hill towards the water. These greens might be good for players practicing for the U.S. Open, but for us armatures, I feel its unnecessary.

Pro shop was nice, I didn't eat anything. They have bag service, and I saw the beverage cart about every 3 holes or so, that is major plus on hot southern afternoons.

The layout and design are fantastic. Great variety of holes. There is one short par-3 and a couple long ones. There is a driveable par 4 (10th) and some straight forward par-5s and some complicated ones.

I would definitely play there again

Was wet but had rained two days before. Awesome course. Must play from back tees as it’s pretty short generally speaking.

Cart path only is tough for this very hilly and difficult course.

I played this course two days after Thanksgiving and the course was busy but play moved along very well. Played with my son here and it was bot our first time playing. Condition of fairways were very good but greens not as good. I found the greens roller true though. It was a gorgeous fall sunny day in ATL so we lucked on conditions. Found the assistant pro in proshop to be very friendly and courteous. After round the staff were equally friendly as well. Overall I would say we really enjoyed our round here and will definitely come here again when visiting friends and family in the area.
