Challenging

Nice course only lost one ball in the lake. There are some forced carries over the lake so play the right tees.
Greens were in good shape ha be a lot of undulations.

Ok Course. Staff is rude.

Love playing alongside the lake. However, the pace is slow for the price range, and the staff is very rude - especially the course manager.

Hello Mr. Harston,
Thank you for the feedback. I have investigated your complaint and analyzed your last two rounds with us here at the course via our GPS system that records cart locations and round times. On Sunday October 18th your group started at 1:10PM and completed your round in 4 hours 28 minutes. We believe that a round less than 4 hours 30 minutes is perfectly adequate for the enjoyment of our guests who are of varying abilities.
On your prior visit to our golf course your group started at 3:27PM and played in 3 hours and 53 minutes. You were on #18 fairway at 7:17PM therefore we believe you managed to complete all 18 holes before sunset The pace of play from 1:50PM onwards that day was less than 4 hours for every group. I am personally delighted with that pace of play in a busy Sunday afternoon.

Our Golf Shop Supervisor is the person you refer to as "course manager" and kindly heard out your original complaint about pace of play from October 4 and offered rain checks as a gesture of goodwill. My belief, after speaking with him, is that he was merely being assertive in communicating to you that we would not offer rain checks to you again given you were on track for a round of 4 hours and 30 minutes. In your review you have branded all Lanier Islands Legacy Golf Course staff as 'very rude' and I completely disagree here. There is no evidence to suggest all our staff are rude and prior recent reviews mentioning our staff suggest the opposite is true.

In the event that you would like to play our golf course again please ensure you call me directly and I will determine if we can accommodate your group's request.

Regards,
Gary Clarkson

Fabulous!

This course is an hour away from me but I had heard so much about it that I had to play it. I was on vacation and made it my highest priority. It did not disappoint! Most holes border lake Lanier which provided a nice breeze all day. The course grooming was top notch and the layout was interesting as well as challenging. The greens rolled true and fairways and tee boxes where in tremendous shape too.

best overall as a public golf course

extraordinary golf course, from price to staff to course conditions. the first 4 holes have beautiful views and the back 9 are very cool challenges. lots of water but beautiful. staff is great! amenities like water and sofdrinks are free. greens are in an okay conditions, but i suggest to practice before you play.
the price pays it all!

Great Course Great shape

One of the best courses in Georgia. Beautiful views and challenging course. If you are playing well you can score well if you don’t hit fairway in for a long day. 12,13,-14 one of the toughest stretches in any golf course. Will be back for sure and would highly recommend!!!

Couldn’t ask for a better course and amenities and it was a beautiful day and my friends said the same and we also like the 10th hole for a hole in one that you added made the round even better even though I didn’t come close one of my friends did but it rolled of the greens we will all be back soon
