Atlanta Golf Course Reviews: The Three Best
A review of three of Atlanta's best golf courses.
One such course is the new golf course that is in the process of being remodeled at Capital City Club, located in the Historic Brookhaven area. The new golf course is supposedly being designed by a professional golfer, although his name has not been disclosed yet. I had the good fortune of playing on this course. The turf was in excellent condition and since everything was remodeled I can say nothing but good things about it. The terrain is very hilly in many parts, and there are many upward and downwardly sloping holes. The ball tends to roll a lot. There are more sand bunkers than water obstacles. The course overall consists of thirty-six great holes.
Another course I enjoy playing is Cross Creek. It is a relatively small course that is in no way fit for you to use a driver on. Almost every hole is a part three, with some exceptions. It is great for practicing putting a strokes with your iron. There are not very many obstacles, aside from the apartments that line the 3rd hole and the highway behind the sixth. There is a relatively fair amount of poorly kept grass near the edges of the fairway, be sure to watch out for that. There are quite a few large water features as well.
The last course I would recommend is Crabapple. It is a very good course, but it is very average. Average amount of everything, all sorts of hazards and whatnot. The field condition is excellent though, and the golf shop there is very good. This is a good overall place to practice your overall game if you are just looking to practice and nothing more.
These are my three favorite golf courses, as I have said. They are good local courses to practice on. If you get adventurous, you can try going to Sandy Springs courses or courses up in Alpharetta. There are some nice ones out there. The golf courses in Atlanta are nice as well, but certainly are not world class courses, such as St. Andrews in Scotland. The Capital City Club Course is close though.
