I understand the Atlanta Open (April 16-17) will be played there, so presumably it would be open at some point before that to practice.

This is really,really depressing.

I remember I went to play up there in November,and had talked to him the night before on the phone,and he had been telling me about the golfers who had been causing trouble and how due to this the longest hole had to be escort only at the time,I guess he had to take it a step further.

Completely understandable,just sad that people would take advantage of a great guy.

2 chances to play this year...

1) Atlanta Open, super tour event
2) Flygirls women's event, C-tier

If Kelly approves I will be having a mixed doubles round before the tournament for sponsors of my event. May be the last time to play.

I sure am glad I got to play it a few times. Hopefully the neighborhood wont make him shut it down with the revisions of the course. I just hope I can make it out there for the ATL Open! Sucks a few bad apples can ruin it for the bunch of us.

I here the Grange is closed too. They are reworking sunnyside to make it a more challenging course.

Brutal. I hope he allows my wife and I to play a round sometime this summer. Some DGers, like any other sport are completely classless. I guess if it is closed and I am in Atlanta I will be driving to the IDGC.
