Nob North Golf Course

  10 Reviews

I would refer to this as an "average course", nothing particularly bad but nothing that stands out in a positive way either. The condition of the course in general was not great - weeds on fairways, bumpy greens, bare tee boxes, etc. - but the course is about to be closed down for several months while major maintenance work is done, including relaying the greens.

My main frustration with the course was the general layout which has way too many acute angle dog legs for my liking. There was also a bunch of blind shots which is another bugbear of mine.

He would not play this course again.

I have played this course a few times. I wrote a review 4 months ago after I played the course for the first time. Overall, my opinion remains the same but I have to add that the greens were in horrible shape when I last played. There were many unrepaired ball marks where the grass has died. Also, there were many bare spots but mostly near the edges. I don't recall a single green that was not in poor shape. Not only do players not repair their marks but it seems the greens staff doesn't tend to them as well. It was very disappointing. The rest of the course was well tended so this made the poor greens even more noticeable. It is still worth playing but be aware of the disappotmenting greens.

I have loved this course for over 25 years. It's always been in great shape and one of the best public courses in NW Georgia. However, the greens have declined to the point they need to be rebuilt. They have allowed wild grass and Bermuda to creep into the Bentgrass greens. There were also some fungus spots on several greens. The greens were naturally beat up due to the heat and high humidity. The city of Dalton needs to invest in Champion Bermuda greens that are much more heat tolerant, durable and easier to maintain. This would be costly but it's a must for the long term viability of Nob North. I still recommend the course for the layout and overall condition. Tees, fairways and traps were in good shape. Cart paths are rough and they need to be repaired.

The weather was terrible in Atlanta so we made the hour trip north. It had rained the previous day and was still raining lightly when we teed off at 8am. Even with the soggy conditions the course played well. The bent greens were incredibly receptive and rolled very well. After 18 holes of wet golf we decided to go out again as the weather was clearing. With very few people on the course our twosome got around well under 3 hours even with "cart path only" rules.
