Course Reviews


THIS COURSE RECEIVES RATINGS WHICH ARE FAR BELOW IT'S QUALITY. I THINK IT BECAUSE THIS LAYOUT (BY BOBBY JONES AND WALTER HAGEN) IS TOTALLY NATURAL. I DOUBT THAT ANY EARTH WAS MOVED DURING ITS CONSTRUCTION IN 1927. AS A RESULT, THE GREENS ARE SLOPED ACCORDING TO THE WAY THE LAND SLOPES. AND THERE IS SERIOUS SLOPE TO THIS TERRAIN, ESPECIALLY ON THE BACK NINE. THIS IS SERIOUSLY OLD STYLE GOLF- YOU FIND THIS IN EVERY COURSE IN GREAT BRITAIN . THE FAIRWAYS RETAIN THE BUMPS AND ROLLS THAT RESULT FROM A COURSE BUILT BY CUTTING DOWN THE TREES AND SOMETIMES LEAVING THEM IN THE FAIRWAYS , THEN COVERING THEM AND DRAGGING LOGS , ETC BY MULES OVER THEM. THE DESIGNERS OF THOSE DAYS (AND LONG BEFORE IN SCOTLAND) DESIGNED THE COURSES BY USING THE NATURAL SLOPES OF THE TERRAIN. NOT BY USING BULL DOZERS TO ALTER THE NATURAL SLOPES AND CREATING ARTIFICIALLY ELEVATED AND CONTOURED GREENS. WHEN YOU PLAY NORTH FULTON, YOU WILL BE PLAYING A LEGITIMATE SCOTTISH TYPE DESIGN. UNLIKE MOST AMERICAN COURSES, YOU WILL GIVEN MANY DIFFERENT OPTIONS FOR APPROACHING EACH GREEN-- YOU CAN PLAY A KNOCK-DOWN PITCH AND RUN, A HIGH PTICH TO AN ELEVATED GREEN , OR WHATEVER YOU CAN IMAGINE. YOU DON'T GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO USE YOUR IMAGINATION ON MOST TRADITIONAL "TARGET GOLF" COURSES IN THE U.S. THE GREENS CAN BE DIABOLICAL. THEY ARE BUILT ON THE SLOPES OF THE TERRAIN WITHOUT ANY CHANGES IN ELEVATION EXCEPT THOSE PROVIDED BY THE NATURAL TERRAIN. WITH CHAMPIONS BERMUDA AND LOTS OF GRAIN, IT IS NOT UNUSUAL TO HAVE A 1O FT OR MORE BREAK ON A 25 FT PUTT. TRUST ME. IT IS A SERIOUS CHALLENGE.
YOU SHOULD DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GIVE THIS COURSE A SHOT. IF YOU CAN SHOOT YOUR HANDICAP HERE, I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT IT. THE REVIEWERS WHO RATE THIS COURSE POORLY MUST NOT BE VERY GOOD PLAYERS. IT IS A SERIOUS CHALLENGE. IT WILL EAT YOUR LUNCH IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN OUTSTANDING SHORT GAME. THOSE WHO SUGGEST THAT IT IS TOO SHORT ARE PLAYING THE WRONG TEES.

Fun little track. Holes are short but they have some teeth with the way they are set up. Ambassador (marshal) was extremely helpful as was the staff. Great play for the $$, just make sure you leave for the course early because the neighborhood is PACKED and parking was tough. Overall the greens were in good shape, the par 3's were fun and par 5's were reachable if you got on it.

Visually intimidating, mostly because the creek(s) running across many fairways haven't seen a brush hog in years. Scorecard shows four sets of tees but only three available. Overall condition was below average.

Very fun and good course in the middle of the city. The conditions are getting better, but are hit or miss. The layout is very good with the back 9 being the better of the two. A lot of beginner golfers play this course and it's not an easy track... long rounds.

Decent shape; good, really, for a municipal course run by American Golf. Very simple layout, a few blind shots, good conditioning, but they try to put too many people on the course on the weekends.

Decent and affordable, not much else to say

Decent course and affordable by Atlanta standards, but don't look for quick play. No driving range, two chipping and putting greens, narrow fairways that frequently play alongside numerous other holes. If your just looking to get out, good course to play, but that's about it.
