Too expensive

This course layout and condition is good but the price is too high compare to layout and green condition. They give you complimentary food and water or juice but they are frozen sandwiches and hotdogs. They really should get rid of the food. Instead the green fee should be lower.

Nice!

Everything was great, except... There were people (not golfers, just driving by) on the 14th hole that were taking pictures in the fairway and rough. On hole 18, there was a jogger that cut over the fairway during my wife's tee shot. Also on 18, there were people on bikes that were riding the opposite way down the cart path.

A great course around the lake

A last minute decision to play here. My wife's first time, she loved it. A perfect day to get out.

Beautiful gem

Picturesque describes this beauty with a fantastic layout along the shoreline of Lake Lanier. Greens were in nearly perfect condition. Fairways very good following days of heavy rains. Mike the starter was excellent and professional. Love the idea of free lunch with your greens fees. We will be back.
