Stone Mountain Golf Club Course Review

Stone Mountain Golf Club is one of Atlanta’s favorite courses, the highly-regarded Robert Trent Jones 18 has been supplemented by two new nines by John LaFoy featuring more of a resort feel. The first hole is one of the best golf holes you’ll like ever play. The original 18 is a terrific traditional test, playing to a par 70 with some length, tight tree lines and quick greens. With an exception or two, the par 4s are a handful, requiring both accuracy and length from the tee, even if you’re not playing from the back tees.

The newer, more resort-oriented 18 features a scenic front nine around Stone Mountain Lake that is relatively short but filled with trouble, as well as a few of the toughest holes among the 36. The tee shot over water on the par-5 first with the mountain in the background is one of the great sights in Atlanta golf, but like the treacherous par-4 third, which requires a lengthy second shot over a rocky creek, the wonderful views can’t diminish the demands of the shots at hand.

The newest nine, which serves as the inward half on the Lakemont Course, is the most rugged of the group in terms of terrain, but offers the most scoring opportunities with several par 4s that should require only short iron approaches. Conditions and amenities have been upgraded since the Marriott Group took over operation, and it is again one of the best and most popular destinations for local players and visitors.

  1. Just played Lakemont yesterday, the coarse is in pretty good shape. The greens are good shape (not great yet). Its still a fun, but tough course to play. Especially the par 3, 6th hole over the edge of the lake to your left. I’ll be back out there next week.

  2. Excellent layout. This is a tough course for all levels.Excellent playing conditions. Marriott keeping course in great shape!

  3. The course is beautiful along with the friendly staff. With challenging holes throughout the course, it encourages you to soon come back and play again!

  4. This is an incredible nice golf course ! I’ve played it the first time this week and am more than overwelmed ! As I am a beginner, I found all challenges you can find on a golf course. The Lakemond course is definetly one of niced courses I have seen so far.

  5. Lakemont at Stone Mountain is a great way to spend a day. The course is very playable, but has
    a few holes that will bring you to your knees. The scenery is beautiful as you play along the Lake- side on the front nine. Every time is a time to remember. The people of Marriott do a wonderful job of making you feel welcome.

  6. Great lay out. Very challenging terrain. Should appeal to golfers of all playing ability.

  7. If you want to play a magnificent course designed by a legendary designer in an historical setting then St. Mountain is the place. It is a true test of golf, no tricked up holes just straight ahead golf.

  8. I’ve played this course a few times and it’s great. And the people who work there are friendly and knowledgeable.

  9. Great Course and wonderful Staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. They don’t put on aires as some of these other courses do. I’ll gladly pay my green fees to play at Stone Mountain Golf Club.
