Always fun at Candler Park

This little course is fun! Although it was very mucky because of the rain the previous night. The greens were in nice shape. I wish they would cut back the trail from 8 to 9. It’s getting too overgrown and hard to navigate. Otherwise a great value!

The Little Golf Course that Could

Like the little blue engine of yore, overlooked in favor of all the bigger, shinier engines, this little golf course always chugs and puffs and with moxie she comes through in the end.

Yes, some of the greens are “lost” and the 6th tee is… I dunno what to say about the 6th tee… but this little oasis of old-timey, unfussy, unpretentious golf is one of the best golf experiences in Atlanta. Grab your walking bag and a friend who’s never played or junior golfer and have a guaranteed great 90 minutes. I never regret 9 at Candler Park.

Play 9

A good value! This is a challenging little course. We play here often and like it due to the layout. There are a couple of low lying areas that hold water and can get mucky. Also the “hiking” path from 8 to 9 needs to be trimmed back desperately.

Good for your money

Good course for your money nothing special but decently well kept. Greens could be better but not terrible.

Only issue is if u get an early tee time they usually leave the sprinkler system on which is annoying but otherwise good course.

Perfect

The greens are uniformly irregular. The few tufts of grass on the tee boxes should be personally congratulated for their unrelenting tenacity. The fairways were... lush, actually, although there are one, maybe two holes where you need to hit them.. This is Candler Park. If you come for the conditions, you will be disappointed. If you come to follow a small white ball around an enchanting and hilly patch of historic intown Atlanta, you will find that everything here is, as always, perfect.

Enjoyable place to play

Only issue is the greens. Many are patchy, with no grass here and there (e.g., the 8th hole), unpredictable to play on.
