With an excellent location surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains to one side and overlooking Georgia's Great Lake on the other, Lanier Islands Legacy Golf Course provides the perfect setting for a round of golf. The diverse, rolling landscape ranges from dense forest to open meadows to pristine beaches. Water has a strong presence throughout the golf course, coming into play on 12 holes. Many of them play right along the lake's shoreline. At 6,580 yards, the course is not particularly long but it is still a formidable challenge for long hitters since it requires quite a few demanding carries over the water. One of the most memorable holes for this reason is the par-4 12th, which presents an interesting risk-reward opportunity if you dare to cut the corner.

    I have played this course many many times over past 10 years and have known Brian the pro
    For as long as he has been there! I would rate him
    As Top Pro! And a gentleman at all times!
    Very supportive of our military soldiers and has assisted in events for our wounded Warriors!
    He has supported USO for a number of years
    Darn good man!

    Facility is in need of a professional director of golf. The one that works there now has the title of "professional".....but it's only a title.....He is the furthest from a PGA professional that you will ever find.....
    I had a scheduling conflict open up some free time late on a Sunday afternoon....when the course was basically empty and I drove out to Lanier Islands after repeatedly being directed to voice mail attempting to contact the pro shop..... When I got there.... the "professional" told me it was too late to play because of his concern for keeping the cart staff there late. I was slightly irritated but understood....after was late in the afternoon....but I only wanted to play 9 holes.....AsI was walking back to my vehicle..... I noticed a foursome teeing off on the first tee..... and so I went back inside to ask if maybe there was a miscommunication on my part..... The "professional" studdered and after untying his tongue.... he said that this foursome had already played 18 holes earlier in the day..... and was replaying hole #1 only as a playoff.....which was not only an excuse..... it wasn't true.... the foursome replayed the entire front nine again.....
    The course is a great design/layout.....too bad it is managed by someone whose idea of growing the game is to be home at 6 every night so he will not miss a meal......
