Lanier Islands' Legacy Golf Course Takes Aim at Becoming Best Resort Course in Georgia
Named #2 Among Best Courses in Georgia by Golf Advisor for 2018, Staff at Metro Atlanta Resort Shoots for #1 in 2019 Between Course Conditions, Special Amenities, Upcoming Events and Customer Service
By: Lanier Islands
"To be designated #2 in the state out of nearly 200 courses, this speaks volumes for our staff here at the golf course – from our cart staff, starters and rangers to our pro shop staff and beverage cart attendees – all of whom interact with our guests each visit in an effort to enhance their experience,"
Miller points to a number of factors that set Legacy Golf Course apart from other resort, public and semi-private courses in Georgia. For a number of years, Lanier Islands has offered a "one price gets you everything" policy. Golfers at Legacy Golf Course get to enjoy 18 holes of golf, greens fees and range balls – along with complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages in the clubhouse – all for one price. The condition of the course has also proven a real game-changer for the resort. Whereas many North Georgia courses feature Bent Grass, Legacy boasts Bermuda Greens – which have a tendency to run true and fast well into the dog days of summer and beyond. What is perhaps most compelling about this particular resort course is that it is every bit as challenging as it is breathtaking. 12 of 18 holes are located on or within sight of the lake, making for a scenic yet exciting water hazard-filled day of golf.
In partnership with Swing King for 2019, the resort has introduced a Hole-in-One challenge at Hole #10. Every golfer has a shot at winning $1,000 if they make a hole-in-one at the Par 3 hole. For a $5 upgrade, they could win $10K and for a $10 upgrade, they could win $20K. Even better, all shots are filmed and golfers who score a hole-in-one are given a DVD of the moment when they took the shot of a lifetime. This August, Legacy Golf Course will also play host to the PGA Jr. League State Championship – representing what would equate to the "World Series" for one of the fastest growing golf programs for players 13 and under. It serves as a great way to introduce an entirely new generation of golfers and their families to the #2 course in the state.
In addition to this most recent accolade, Lanier Islands has consistently secured Certificates of Excellence from TripAdvisor for its customer service and guest experience resort-wide. It was also just named Best of Weddings by The Knot for 2019, won a Couple's Choice Award from WeddingWire and was recognized as Best of 2019 winner by Wedding Spot.
