Very fun course to play. Greens are always in great condition. You can get around with a 3 or 5 wood. Little on the pricey side but worth it at least once, especially for the greens (only bent in Macon).

This course is in a very rich neighborhood with a great maitenance crew. It is over priced and not very difficult. It is a very traditional cours with small ponds. the eightenth is very nice.

Idle Hour is a beautiful, historic course (1912 for those of you keeping score at home). It's got challenging holes, meticulous grounds, and set in a secluded uber-rich neighborhood. Of course, the $90+ greens fees can be a problem, and there are courses just as good in the area for a lot less.
