Steel Canyon Golf Club
Good golf chanllenge
Steel Canyon is a short course with several challenges along the way. Some of the fairways are wide, a few were very narrow to sharpen your skills for hitting the ball straight! There were a couple of holes your had to hit over water and some with lots of brush to lose your ball in. I thought it was very good and short enough to grab 18 challenging holes for all levels of golfers.

Being a beginner golfer (less than a year) I enjoy getting out on this course. For one its cheap and two the friendliness of the staff is excellent. Guven that this used to be a landfill you can't have huge expectations. For an executive course with 2 par 5s, this course is just so fun!

Great Value for the money
It was my third time playing this course, and I enjoy it better than the last couple of times. I found a good deal on Golf Now twice (under $15 for 18 holes) and the second time I use a coupon that a guy i played with gave me. The staff is very friendly, food and drinks are at great price. some tee boxes needs some major work and it will be nice if they have trash cans at least every other hole. I started my round on Friday at 3:00pm and we didn't wait once on the tee box. I will recommended, i will play here again next week.

I have never had so much fun playing a round of golf. Every hole is unique and unlike any other hole I've ever played. The greens were in phenomenal condition, and excellent value for the 22$ I paid. I will definitely be coming back!

Needs some TLC
I like this course and the staff is very friendly, but this is a get what you pay for type of place. My main complaint is the tee boxes are borderline terrible and this is a par three course so the majority of shots are from the tee box so they do matter. basically the tee boxes are shot out, the fairways are so so, the rough is pretty rough and the bunkers are wastelands. The greens are in pretty good shape right now though. This is the place you come after work with a buddy to have a few beers and play a few holes or if you are big time hacker. They don't have a problem with coolers. It is not the place for the person who only plays once a month and wants a nice round at a nice course. Normally they are very busy but were pretty open when I played. A similar course to this one is the hooch in Duluth but it is further away and a little more pricey. It is much nicer though.

One of the worst courses in metro Atlanta
Easily one of the worst courses in metro Atlanta. This course will teach you that it is worth paying an extra $20 to golf at a nice course rather than "bargain" hunt. This is a $32 par 3/4 course with only one par 5, and a ridiculous hole setup. Most of the par 3's are less than 100 yards. The course conditions were terrible. The tee boxes on 11, 12, and 13 are glorified cow pastures with sand traps that are literally falling apart (many sand traps had no sand - just the liner). The course is challenging simply because the tee boxes, fairways, and greens are terribly kept, if at all. Also, this course sits under electrical power plant towers - a creative use of the land but with towers and poles often sitting right next to the fairway, this is a bad course to play. Also, EXTREMELY hilly and they use electric carts. We saw 3 different twosomes have to abandon their carts because they were not fully charged. If you're in the Sandy Springs area, drive out a little bit further to Stone Mountain or East Atlanta and pay a little bit more for a better course. Absolutely awful.

Great course for the money.
The only problem is the bunkers. They need to be improved. The other problem is the players who really do not care to rake the bunkers and specially, damaging the cups when replacing the flags. Maybe a ranger is needed to remove those infractors. We do not need those people.

Good little prcatice course / club w/ rude help
I've played this course probably 20 - 30 times thru the years. And used the driving range maybe an equal number or more.
This course is exactly as you'd expect. Its a little rough. The greens are a C- and the wait for people to play on is forever.
On the flip side; the course is laid out nicely for what you get. Since most scoring on a regular course happens after your drive, this is an excellent course to work in pitching to the green's and working on ball placement relative to pin placement, etc.
Also, the patrons are normally nicer than nice. For example, a group of three allowed me to play thru on the 3rd hole; and another on the 14th. The people at the club house are normally beyond courteous. I did run into a rude person this time, and it was not normal. Was first time I'd seen him there and hopefully he shapes up or ships out.
Absent that one individual, I will return and play on. One moron, won't ruin this little course or my desire to grin and bare it.
