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.

The hotel was amazing. The restaurant fare was excellent. The salad was so fresh. Our waitress was precious and we felt as if we were the only people in the place. Loved it!

I had the opportunity to play Grand National Golf Course this last week. The conditions of the golf course were excellent and the pace of play was much better than we expected, about 3:50. The course is an excellent design that opened a couple of years ago and now has become a very nice course with adequate fairways and excellent... More

Great course, the greens were in great shape and ran about an 11 on the stimp they said. Lots of undulations on them and very crafty design of the environment here. Jones did a fantastic job here. Would definitely recommend a trip out here if you've never been. You will not be disappointed. Plenty of water and bathroom facilities available... More
