Cobblestone Golf Course is no stranger to high praise. Considered a top 100 ‘Courses you can play’ by Golf Magazine in 2011, 2012 and 2013, and named to the ‘2011 Best Municipal Courses in the U.S.’ list by Golfweek. The course is owned by Cobb County, Ga and should be a learning station for other local municipalities.
Well I ventured just north of Atlanta to play Cobblestone G.C. this past Saturday and was not disappointed. From the amazing views of Lake Acworth, the hospitality of the crew, and exceptional layout of the course it is easy to see why it has been highly ranked.
Pace of Play – (A+) I teed off at 4:20 and was on pace to finish in under four hours. Heavy rain came on #16.
Price to Play – (A++) Saturday rounds on GolfNow.com as low as $35.
Hospitality – (A) From club house to starter everyone was helpful and friendly. Shout out to my starter, Steve.
Course Conditions – (B+) The greens were punched in mid-early July and are rolling well. There are dead/dry spots in two or three fairways, but these locations are few and far between, and never affected my play. Overall, for the number of rounds this course plays, it is in superb condition.

Hole to Attack
#1 Par 5 – 526 Yards
A tight tree-lined fairway that slopes towards the green gives you a great chance at birdie on #1. After my drive (best of the day) I was left with 205 yards to the pin. Aim left on your approach and your misses will kick right towards the green.
#17 Par 4 – 316 Yards
This is a great risk/reward hole. If you are going for it I would suggest playing a stinger three wood. The slope runs hard towards the green, use this to your advantage.
#16 Par 3 – 133 Yards
When I reached the 16th tee box the heavens opened. I hit my tee shot and it found a resting spot on the back fringe of this long skinny green. I blame missing my birdie putt on the rain.
Even with the heavy rain this course did not disappoint. I’ll be back and hope you decide to check it out soon!
Hit em straight, Boys.
