Trophy Club of Atlanta
Great Layout but showing its age
This course has the potential to be a favorite of mine, especially since I live 10 minutes from the course. Great layout that commands skill with all clubs, not just the driver. Unfortunately this course is in need of a capital infusion to upgrade the facilities, including the driving range, clubhouse and most certainly the cart paths. The green fees are not commensurate with what you get on the course.

Staff is extremely rude, especially to non-members. We played this course for a tournament. When we signed up, a week prior, there was no one in our division, which struck me as odd, because there are usually 10-20. Two others who had never played the course signed up last minute. I now know why the numbers were so low. The club "ambassador" ranted to our group of walking JUNIOR golfers mid-hole in the 9th fairway because we were "playing too slow" - we had teed off 2 hours and 10 minutes prior. This wasn't a polite "pick up the pace" interaction. It was an extremely rude and demeaning confrontation. Our round was complete in 4 hours, 45 minutes. The course is iffy at best, and includes an actual OUTHOUSE (not a port-a-potty - far worse because this is never cleaned or pumped) where the door is so warped it won't come close to closing. Cart path sections are horribly shifted to extremely unlevel positions and cracked, which explains the condition of the carts. Lots of unrepaired ball marks on the greens which were slow. There isn't much differentiation between the fairways and the rough. The quality of the course is that of a marginal public course, and when you factor in the staff and amenities, it's not worth the time and effort to play here. We certainly won't be back.

Good, short course
Course was in great shape. We were warned to stay out of the rough and in hindsight, I wish I had heeded that advice more. All in all, this is a short course. Several par 4 greens are driveable. Loved the elevation change.

Solid bang for buck
After a morning of rain, the greens still rolled at a 9 which is proof to a well managed course. Tee boxes we not all flat and at times narrow.

Played 18 with a group of friends and while we were right on the tail of the group in front without being able to see the group behind we were still nagged by staff every 3rd hole to make sure we were keeping up with the pace of the course.
Food is standard hot dog or brat w chips - nothing special about the clubhouse.
All in all - nice course but nothing special.

First time I played the course. Course was in great condition and well maintained, I will play here again.

Good value with friendly groups to play with
The white tees are great fun for someone who doesn't hit it long anymore...there's a nice mix of whites & blues on the card if you're not too concerned with distance. The rough was just cut so it played easier than other recent reviews mentioned but still not someplace you want to be. The greens were firm and got quicker as the sun dried them and the temperature went up. The best thing about this course for me (I'm only in Atlanta part-time) is the informal "Tee Times" group that plays every Tuesday and Thursday around 8:30am. When I'm in Atlanta I have a game with good guys I've met and more often than not have played with before.

Course was in great shape, greens were hard but not as fast as a few weeks ago. The time of year with leaves on the ground and the rough grown up made it difficult to find balls that missed the fairway by the slightest. I wished this course had more convenient yardage markers around the holes. Not very hole had a 150 or 100 marker and the pin location was incorrect on a few of the 150 markers that were present.
Great course for the money. Starter was a little uptight, but the marshals on the course we're very nice and would track tee shots for us holes they were on! Will be returning to play again soon! If this place were closer I'd be a member!
