Summer Grove Golf Club
Good all around course
Good track to play. Summergrove is in my usual rotation of courses. Conditions are always good, and there is a good variety of holes. I'm a 5 hcp and always enjoy this place. Watch out for #9. Narrow green.

Good Condition - Bad Layout
After playing this course several times, I've noticed that the front nine does not drain very well due to it being much flatter, so don't play it if it's been raining recently.
The course is in fair condition, but the think I can't get over is how penal the course is. The course plays through the Summergrove nieghborhood, so you've got plenty of distractions and out of bounds lining each hole. There's plenty of water and sand, too. It's a cliche course where "target golf" is demanded - either hit the target or pay a hefty price - very little room for creativity. This is the most obvious on hole #9, which is quite possibly the poorest designed hole I've ever encountered. It's a 440 yard par 4 with an approach shot to a green that may be smaller than Augusta National's #12, with water in front and sand behind, just like Augusta.
This course is the closest to where I live - less than 5 minutes - but after being frustrated too much on the course, I've started playing other courses that are farther away.

A wonderful course with a good mix of sand and water hazards. Very nice zoysia fairways and fast undulating greens.

Course is in the best shape ever
The course is in the best shape that I have ever seen it - much improved since the first time I played there in the summer of 2013.
I'd recommend it to any golfer.

An easy front 9 - all flat and gettable. Best part of the round was the smooth and fast consistency of the greens. Really fantastic. Can't wait to go back.

Summer Grove Great Shape
Greens are in great shape, good course.
#17 if flag is in the back go long.
Will play again.
Course starts you off with a simple par 4 and a nice par 5, then it starts to toughen up, Good Layout.

Nice Round, Great Value
Overall had a good time on the course. Course was in good shape and greens were rolling well. On the front nine, our group sailed through first 7 holes, but then caught up to a slow ladies group that took 40 minutes to play the last two holes. Thankfully, they went in for a long lunch at the turn, and we were able to play the back nine in under two hours. Even with the backups, still played in 4:20, would be near 5 hour range if we were still behind that group. Staff was friendly, though I wish the had greater monitoring to prevent any backups. Would definitely return to this course, is worth the drive from Buckhead!

Great layout, great shape, but slow slow pace of play
Be ready for a fun and wonderful in shape course that is somewhat challenging and with different looks from the tee box and approach shots. Most clubs will be used in your bag.
The pace of play can be painful although they have staff riding around I have come to believe they just ride around and to afraid to tell a group to pick up the pace.
If you like 5 hours of hit and wait then certainly this is a good place for that.
