This was our first round of golf on the Robert Trent Golf Trail. We had a beautiful and enjoyable round of golf at Grand National Lakes Course. It helped that the weather was perfect and we enjoyed the couple we were paired with during the round. This is a beautiful course. The course was in excellent condition although reading the... More

Played the Lakes course as the Links had been aerated weeks before, during the dormant season. This was winter golf and yet it was a pleasure to play. The vistas on the Lake course are terrific and the par 3's need not take a back seat to any par 3's in the country. Speaking of which, for an additional $20... More

This definitely was fantastic! After eating a phenomenal lunch in the clubhouse, we were in for a treat with the lakes course. There was a lot of construction and maintenance occurring, but understandably they were in full gear preparing for the PGA Tour event that will be here in July. Some Fantastic views of Lake Saugahatchee, including an island green... More

the food in the clubhouse was great. I would perfer that all users of the par 3 course use a cart. This would speed up play because most users of a par 3 is trying to get a round in pretty quickly.

The course and facilities are beautiful and align with the expectations for the highly advertised RTJ Trail. However, the unfriendly and unhelpful attitude of everyone we encountered during our visit made this a very bad experience. We expected much better customer service for this type of venue, especially given the premium rates. It is quite a drive from Atlanta to... More

Sure some of the courses are less spectacular than others. I can also imagine that the hospitality quotient might not be consistently good at every location. One must remember, however, that these are public courses. The Grand National Lakes Course ranks right up there in terms of golfing challenge, scenic beauty, and competent service.

Played all three courses and all were excellent. The Lake and Links are well maintained and beautiful. The short course was equally well maintained and fun to play. Staff was extraordinary.

Great courses, including a really fun par three track, surrounded by mature forest and an enormous lake. Greens could have been faster, but that's nit-picking. Terrific courses that were a joy to play.

From reading some of the reviews below, I can't imagine we played at the same place... I brought 44 guys for my annual Ryder-Cup style charity event... The staff and management were unbelievably accommodating and the facility was fantastic. The rangers did a fantastic job of keeping everyone on pace. If you found them over-bearing then you are TOO SLOW... More

The Rangers were over bearing. The cart lady we saw one time the whole round. Our cart died. The greens were horrible. Also the place seemed vacant. No one was at the hotel and it seemed as though they aren't making enough money to keep the course running. Don't waste your time. Plan a different golf trip. Absolutely god awful.
