Help me with Atlanta options... Public/Clubcorp

I’ll be in Atlanta the weekend before the Masters. Looking to play Saturday and Sunday. I’m a member of a clubcorp so I’m looking at either those courses or public. I’ve searched the forums and don’t see a lot of info on the public’s in Atlanta. What’s the best option? Thanks!

    The clubcorps I’ve played there are pretty bad.



    How about the new Bobby Jones Course?



    Also, is the Peachtree Golf Center lighted par3 course worth playing?

    Luke, I lived in Suwanee for a couple years and played Peachtree GC multiple times under the lights. It’s a fun time but nothing worth writing home about. I’ve been out of Georgia now for 5 years but I wouldn’t waist my night outs in Atlanta for PGC unless your with the family and looking for as much golf as possible.

    You must be thinking of something else, as Peachtree golf

    Club is the Mecca in Atlanta.

    PGC is a little dump on PIB in Duluth, right next to the other dump called The Hooch. Would not waste my time with either. It's not the same as the exclusive Peachtree club...



    For Club Corp and Atlanta, I can only vouch for the northside courses, so look into ATL National, White Columns, The Manor or CCOS.

    Peachtree Golf Center is what’a being referenced. Not the golf club. Bobby Jones has been hit or miss from reviews. Some people like it others don’t.



    I’ve played it with the shotgun routing where you play it in both directions. The novelty of it is interesting. It’s been pretty dormant for most of the time with the course opening in November. Greens are in great shape with them being new.



    I also have played it once with going in one direction two times to play 18 holes. There are timing issues with making the turn and we had to wait about 25 minutes to tee off due to other groups starting rounds and the groups ahead of us playing slow and having to slot in between groups. By April it should be figured out.



    I don’t know what it costs for you to play a Club Corp course, but around Masters Week, you might be looking at $75-100 for 18 at Bobby Jones and while I like the course for the most part, I am not sure if I would pay that personally if I had other options.

    If the weather is decent, all Atlanta courses will be extremely busy leading up to Masters week. There will be many golfers like yourself, flying into ATL then looking to play before driving to Augusta.

    - Try to lock something down w/ your Clubcorp program asap;

    - Look at River Pines (Duluth) or Hard Labor Creek (GA State Parks) on the public side. ****, look at all the GA State Parks courses. While not as strong as Alabama's RTJ golf trail, there's some sleeper courses that are suprisingly enjoyable.



    There's many other good public options, it's early & I'm not fully caffinated yet.



    Hope this helps.

    Is there something wrong with Country Club of the South? It used to be very highly-regarded.

    Depending on where you’re staying, I’d try something at Reynold’s Plantation if you can get a tee time at this late stage.



    Also, the new Bobby Jones is not worth the time. The draw there is and I believe will be the intown range, not the golf course.



    If you can finagle it, play Palmetto in Aiken. It’s an amazing course and they do Master’s week right!

    Anybody played Stone Mountain Park lately? How's the condition? Pace?
