Course Condition

The course is always fun to play. The staff is excellent. However, the course is in need of some badly needed maintenance. Some of the tees need replacement sodding due to bareness. And most of the greenside and fairway bunkers are nearly unplayable. Most bunkers have little to no sand in them. This course use to be pristine. It would be nice to see it returned to that condition.

Nice Course!

Really nice course! Nice carts (very comfortable seats, GPS, etc). Fairways in great shape! Greens recently aerated, so didn't roll perfect, but still good. Pace of play was great. Some really fun water holes. Overall, a really nice course!

Early April

Due to cooler than usual temperatures the course hadn't fully started to come out of winter conditions. The exception--the greens. They were in excellent condition and putted true.

A MUST

This is a beautiful Track with well thought out golf holes. Thanks to Marty in the pro shop who was amazing to deal with. We were fyling into the area and were late for our tee time and he was so accommodating to get us out. Cant wait to go back and play this beauty again.

Serious letdown

I had been told this track was a "must play" in the Atlanta area. The layout is exactly what you would expect, contour and routing reflecting some of Jack's best work. But the conditions were poor at best.

The range stalls were more mortar shell damage than usable. The fairways were strewn with divots that were OLD and not overseeded. The greens reminded me of a 15 year olds complexion rather than a supple surface indicative of an over $100 investment.

I've played 4 other tracks this trip in the Atlanta area with fees from $50-90 and they eclipsed Bear's Best to a degree which should disgrace them. If they were charging $40 I would have been disappointed. But at their price point I would recommend Top Golf, Putt-Putt or a frontal lobotomy before going here.

Entire staff was rude

From the time I called to ask questions about the course the day before, to the pro shop staff, to the cart assignment. Every person was beyond rude and frankly disrespectful. Will never understand why places like this misunderstand the customer and supplier relationship. Needless to say I will likely never go back. Totally unacceptable at any price point.
