Alfred Tup Holmes Golf Course Course Review

Alfred Tup Holmes Golf Course is recommended for golfers who like proximity to downtown, airport areas or enjoy walking.

Locations:I-285 perimeter around city

Tup Holmes lacks length, but the layout features narrow fairways and a lot of elevation changes, with a number of dogleg. Accuracy off the tee is vital beginning with the first hole, with some creeks running through the course, which was built on the site of a Civil War battleground. The downhill par-3 17th is the feature hole.

Bobby Jones Golf Course

Bobby Jones is considerably shorter and tighter, with some imposing trees jutting out along fairways that place an emphasis on accuracy. The terrain is hillier than you’d expect for a course so close to downtown, and with Nancy Creek snaking through the course, trouble looms in a few spots along the way. Some significantly uphill shots will make you think the course is longer than it is, but distance is rarely a concern on an enjoyable layout with a few different twists.

Browns Mill Golf Course Review

480 Cleveland Avenue, Atlanta
Tel: 404.366.3573

Browns Mill Golf Course is a respected layout of moderate length and difficulty, with a little room off the tee and minimal trouble around the sizeable greens. The terrain is on the gentle side, with the tree lines set slightly back from the fairways. An exception is the long and demanding par-4 third, one of the area’s stronger holes. Browns Mill also offers a driving range.

North Fulton Golf Course Review

216 W. Wieuca Road, Atlanta
Tel: 404.255.0723

North Fulton Golf Course also features an excellent layout, with enough length to provide a reasonable challenge for lower handicappers while remaining playable for its many players of lesser ability. A handful of very strong par 4s and creeks that wind through the course and impact several holes provides much of the challenge, and makes North Fulton a solid test from tee to green. The routing has changed a time or two over the years, but the traditional layout has retained its integrity.
