Not worth the money

Great facilities, good condition, ridiculously overpriced. Not worth the money at all. Also might want to bring a hard hat, it’s wide open and balls will be flying everywhere on a busy day. No elevates tee boxes either

Solid Experience

1. I wish the course had true Tee Boxes
2. I wish the was more direction on whole #8 Blind Tee Shot
3. They need a solution to speed up the walkers
4. I will definitely play again

Recommendations + Pros

1. 9 holes took 3 hours. There was a group of 4 ladies who could barely play that backed everyone up. There was also a 3 ball of guys in front of us who couldn’t break 100 playing off the back tees! They need more Marshals out there monitoring these things and getting folks to play off the right tees based on ability. Perhaps have a Starter (there was none) to give folks a run down on tee box etiquette based off score/ability.
2. Flags on range: Definitely need more flags on range for players to gauge different distances during warmup. I counted 3, 60yds, 127yds, 180yds.
3: Starter: definitely need a starter to make sure people play off tee boxes that match their ability!
4: Marshal: need at least 2 doing the rounds to keep things flowing.
5: Cart person: the first time she came around we were on the 7th hole.

Pros:
1. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were PERFECT!!!
2. Staff: well staffed, very friendly and well organized at check in.

Like a Phoenix, Resurgens!

I was against the whole idea. A Buckhead native, I had played the 1932 BJGC 18-hole layout for 50 years., and hated to see the.sizable canopy of old oaks taken down. The deal was good for both City and State, it got the City out of the Underground debacle, and frankly the State will be a better steward. The end result is something really great. Something different, but we’ll-done. A fine walkable nine…really two, since it’s reversible. Outstanding amenities, well designed and operated. A new pleasant, small jewel.

Good course in the city, but not the best value

One of the better shape public courses in the city, but I still can’t get over the price. You pay $40-50 to play only 9 holes that you have to walk and doesn’t include a cart. Every other public course in the area is around the same rate but you typically get 18 holes and includes a cart. Somehow they managed to change the original design from 18 holes to 9 holes and people are still willing to pay the same!

Very Pleasant Surprise

I saw a lot of three star ratings for this course so I had fairly low expectations. I can honestly say I was surprised and delighted by my experience at the course. The fairways were perfect, not a bare patch anywhere and every lie was like hitting off a perfect driving range mat. The greens were recently plugged and sanded so I am looking forward to going back in a couple of weeks, should be excellent. This course is a very good value for the money.

Bobby Jones Golf in Atlanta

This course was extremely well maintained but the strange layout made it a bit more challenging especially when it came to having to watch out for oncoming players in the adjacent fairway.

I have tried a few more courses in Atlanta but didn’t have a very good experience. I generally visit Atlanta in summers and now I prefer going in Boby Johns. However, I feel all senior citizens should be offered some discount in green fee as is generally done in many Public Gilf Courses. Thanks

My Experience - 1st timer

Positives: Tee boxes and fairways were great! Greens very nice. Layout good and will get better as the newly planted trees grow which will make it more challenging.
Opportunities: 1. Booking 18 holes was odd. You have to book 9 holes and then make a second booking 2-2.5 hours later on GolfNow or TeeOff to get a full 18 holes. Why not just add the option on the same booking to do 18 holes.
2. Chipping green should be a lot bigger considering there was additional space available.
3. Putting green: very small, no holes to putt into so had to use my putter cover and if others are on there it gets small/congested quick. Could definitely increase the size of putting green as well.
4. Driving range boxes were pretty rough! Not sure why they couldn’t move it 2 yards in or back to have a clean tee box.

This course will be excellent in about 2 weeks. Greens were aerated recently and it’s not worth $41 to play on aerated greens. However, practice facilities are great. This place will be sweet when greens are ready to go.
