Fun course, but greens need work

It is a fun course to play but I wouldn't pay their full rate. I played for a twilight rate. The greens are in too bad of shape to be charging over $100. They are bare in a lot of spots and covered with weeds in others. The fairways are in good shape but don't hit a shot fat because the ground is very hard, my ball looked like it was landing on the cart path when it hit the fairway. Had a great time but I wouldn't expect to hole a bunch of putts the way the greens are rolling.

unbeatable value for hot deal, meh otherwise

I was able to get the booking for super cheap thanks to hot deal, and then my joined partners apparently pulled out so I ended up with a solo round. First 9 was pretty great. challenging layouts, good views, and great condition.

Back 9 however, became a bit of a blend, generic course with only straights and not much of any challenge to the layouts, and some greens appeared to be infested with something and just had grass dying, hopefully it is being maintained.

For 100$ of the usual price, on top of park access fee you pay at the gate, the course is very hard to recommend. If you can find a good deal on it, I would play here often.

HORRIBLE course conditions and no warning

When you pay close to $100 for a round of golf you expect the course to be in good condition. At least half if not more of these cranes were completely torn up in certain parts and unplayable. Even the greens that were not torn up had weeds growing all over them which made parts incredibly inconsistent. One putt would roll like a 10 or 11 on the stimp, and would then hit a patch of weeds and come to a complete stop. If the course was in good condition the layout would be fine, but I would absolutely not recommend anyone waste their money on this course.

Nice course but there's a lot better courses for the money

The first couple holes by the lake are really what you are paying for in my opinion. Beautiful layouts and challenging fairways but that's really it. Once you get to the back 9, it's like any other course around Atlanta. Some if not most of the greens are rough with inconsistent grass textures, weeds, sand, and holes. Some greens are very fast and others are very slow. I know the course uses two different grasses on the greens between the front and back 9 but if I'm paying over $100 to play a course, I expect the greens to be very nice and consistent for the most part and the tee boxes to be in a little better shape. The fairways were in fair condition to note. Overall I MIGHT return to the course in the future but it would have to be for a good reason. Also to note, the fried grouper sandwich in the club house is amazing!

Stone Mountain Park Courses

Played Lakemont course front nine and Stonemont back nine with a member. Fairways of both tracks are well maintained. Because most Lakemont greens have been replaced over the last several years they’re very nice. But, they roll inconsistent and number 7 suffers from a drainage problem. The recent rains have damaged all the Stonemont bent grass greens. Stonemont course is not worth the money they charge to play it. Stay away from Stonemont. That is unless you’re just looking to enjoy the day practicing.

Terrible greens and no warning

75% of Stonemonts greens are mud and algae while you pay +$90. The course gave no disclosures nor discounts. Waste of money and time (5 hour rounds guaranteed here)

Scenic Lakemont

Lakemont was in great shape. The condition of the greens were good. Only a couple of greens were a little spotty . It’s layout is one of my favorites. Even though this course is not as long as Stonemont , it is still quite a challenge especially from the tips.

Beautiful course, conditions just ok

For the money, I would have expected better conditions. The place is gorgeous, but the greens had some bare spots, and every sand trap was hard as a rock and had canyons where water had run through it. For the money , the value just wasn’t there. Plus, you have to pay $20 just to get into Stone Mountain park just to get to the course.
