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.
