Rates Remain Low at Candler Park Golf Course

There has been a lot of talk about Candler Park Golf Course. After the Friends of the Candler Park Golf Course (FCPG) got together, it appears that the city is not going forward with any plans to shut down the golf course. One of the points of discussion which led to the idea of closing the course in the first place was the fact that the course is losing tens of thousands of dollars every year. One method to recover these losses has been a suggested increase in the green fees for using the course.

If there is an intention to increase the Candler Park Golf Course green fees, it has yet to take effect. In fact, a recent call to the course uncovered that the course appears to have lowered their prices slightly. The current prices are as follows for Atlanta city residents:

-          Weekday rates - $9.72
      -          Weekend rates - $11.88

The greens are in much better condition this year and it appears that the greens will look even better next year with a revitalized effort by the community to beautify the course and make even more use of the green space.

The Candler Park Golf Course is located at:

 585 Candler Park Drive, NE
Atlanta, GA 30307

Candler Park Golf Course is located close to Little Five Points community and is in close proximity to Downtown Atlanta, Midtown, Buckhead, Decatur and North Druid Hills. The 9-hole course features dramatic changes in elevation that can present a challenge on holes where you cannot even see the green at the top of the hill. The community is welcoming to golfers of all skill sets. So, come out and enjoy the low rates on the green fees before they rise. You are sure to enjoy yourself and will certainly be back soon with friends.
