Cobblestone Golf Club
Below average at best
This is an extremely overrated and overpriced course. Greens were o.k at best, they were very long and extremely slow. The tee boxes were horrible with no grass whatsoever on the par 3's and very little grass on any tee box. Fairways were spotty and bare in a lot of places. We had to move our ball several times to hit off grass in the middle of the fairway. It was 90 degrees the day we played and we saw the cart girl once on number four and never again. All of the water coolers on the back nine were empty. We had to fill our water bottles from the bathroom sink . None of this would be a problem if this course was priced and the staff acted like a muni but when you charge $65 for a round and act like you are doing me a favor to let me play there it should be in much better condition.

Tough From The Tips
Great course layout, challenging par 3's , fast greens. You have to plan your 2nd shot on the par 5's , you just can't let it rip on your 2nd shot.
DOES NOT DRAIN WELL, so I would not recommend after a hard rain, but on a dry day this is a tough course from the tips

Fun course, but is in terrible condition currently.
The maintenance crew are working on getting the course in better condition. The putting green is closed until further notice. The turf was transplanted onto greens on the course. The practice tee is in average condition, but to be fair it is well used. The chipping green is in fair condition and needs some more work. The front nine is in good condition and plays well. I really enjoyed playing the front side. The back nine is being worked on, but it is not in good shape. Several places under repair from tee to green. A lot of soggy and muddy areas around the green from over watering. For a public course in an area that hasn't had ideal weather it is in average shape. Overall the staff is not friendly and are more concerned with getting rid of you and making money. I like the addition of tablets for distance and course layout. Turn down the volume with the external buttons because there are loud advertisements that can be annoying. I think they're overpriced for the quality of the course. Not a lot of options for public play in the area. I would recommend going somewhere else for the time being.

terrible greens after calling and had them tell me they were good after a lot of rain. greens were burned dry and repaired in many places.

Invasive Advertising from Golf cart Tablet
First, even if they didn't have this ridiculous advertising this course isn't quality enough to demand that kind of money. A lot of the tee boxes were in laughable condition. Lucky for the club they are in a high income area so they get away with this but don't fall for it. For the entire 18 holes we'd randomly have the tablet (installed in the carts) come on with advertising commercials, no way to stop it keep it from happening. If there is a way they don't make it easy or known. You can only stop it off once it comes on which is hard to do from the tee box. Who wants a commercial advertisement to come on in your back swing? I know I don't. We could not turn the sound off, not an option which is freaking crazy on a golf course. I find that invasive advertising repulsive and would never consider playing at a course that operates like this

Not worth the price - horrible service
The staff and conditions of the course did a great job making sure I spend my money elsewhere. We had the 1st tee time and fell about 7 minutes behind by the 3rd hole. The marshals asked us to move a little faster, and rightfully so. By the 5th hole we were informed that we were still 1 minute behind. Really?? At that time we informed the marshal that the GPS was not working and he was still more focused on the pace of play instead of getting us the full functioning cart we paid for. (Bag man put our clubs in and we didn't recognize it didn't work until the first tee).
We saw another marshal at the 8th and he informed us we were still 1 minute behind. We had nobody waiting on us for the previous 5 holes!! When we switched carts at the turn we informed the mgmt what we were doing and they did not say a single word. Nothing.
When we got to the back 9 they had let a tournament go off, so we waited!.... We didn't see a single marshal the back 9 but finished 20 minutes behind pace of play because we had to wait.
Tee boxes had the entire area marked off as ground under repair. $70 for this course is an absolute joke.

The course has begun to repair dead loss from the winter.
The range was ok, the putting green turf was used to fix the 4th green.
The greens in general were poor.
Some of the tee boxes are completely dead.
General maintenance is sorely lacking.
Simple things like mowing the grass, maintaining the bunkers, cutting the green side fringes, would go a long way to making the course more enjoyable
I also wonder why they charge $2.50 for a 20 ounce power aide?
I can by the identical drink at Wal mart for .56 cents.
That's quite a hefty markup
I think that the management company that runs cobblestone could care less about providing a quality product.
I suspect they want to charge as much as they possibly can and spend as little as they can on maintenance.
I don't understand why it so hard to grow grass and cut it?

One of my favorite GA course
This is a great course that experienced a harsh winter. The maintenance crew has done a "Herculean" job repairing the damage. I had a good round and the course that was marked GUR, was never a hindrance.
