3rd Generation of ATLien who plays Candler

This is a no-frills urban course with zero pretensions. You just go and play 9 holes without breaking the bank and get a good walk in. It keeps me sane and healthy, and I get to maintain my game as well. My grandfather and my father before me played there, and I feel connected to them as well. Hole's 2 & 3 are a challenge, but hole 9 is the hardest. You're hitting blind up a hill to a par 3. See if you can par it.

For some reason you ALWAYS send this survey before I have even played this course, It does not give me confidence in spending extra money with you

For some reason you ALWAYS send this survey before I have even played this course, It does not give me confidence in spending extra money with you, and you always ask me to check in the day before?

Fun but not fancy

Great value and fun but not a golfing “test”. Greens were slow and although mowed, not cleared. There are unavoidable muddy areas especially on holes 4 and 7. Very slow play due to a “teaching” session two groups ahead of us, but groups on either side of us were fun and friendly. Always a good value and fun times with family.

Great bang for your buck

For 15 total pp, it’s hard to complain about candler park Gc. The tee boxes need love, as well as the greens, but they were far from the worst I’ve seen. Maybe put out sand at tee boxes, or move markers? Get their early for an easy 90 minute round - there are lots of new golfers so be prepared for that, however, feeling like you’re on a private course because of the enclosure is great.

Good value

The course is a 9 hole course, with short yardage holes. It's what you would expect for a basically par 3 course. It was perfect for my girlfriend and I, as it was her first time on a golf course, and I'm not that good either. The club house and grounds are closed and unattended, so there are no restroom facilities or actual check in. Everyone on the course the day we went were all beginners, so expect slow play.
