Championship caliber course located near downtown Atlanta in a 50-acre city park. Perkerson is one of metro Atlanta's most scenic, most challenging and longest length courses with several par 4's and a par 5.

Plays through a mature hardwood forest and along a rock-lined stream with hilly terrain. Dual teepads on all but one hole. Every teepad has its own sign. The short pads (red) cater to rec and intermediate skill level and the long pads (black) cater to advanced skill level.

Fairly navigable without map, but there are a few long transitions around the creek due to stream buffer. Enhanced navigation is coming soon.

Local Directions:

From downtown Atlanta:
Head south on I-75/85 past I-20
Exit 244 University Avenue; head West
After 1 mile turn South (left) on Metropolitan Pkwy
After 1/2 mile turn West (right) on Deckner Avenue; the course is located on Deckner, park in the lower gravel lot off the 2nd park entrance.

Public transit: use UBER not taxis. Marta rail line at Oakland City station is less than 1 mile from course -- sketchy walk / easy bike ride.

From the gravel lot, walk down the right side of the creek about 300' to the bridges. The basket in plain view in front of the cliff is the practice basket; hole 1's tee is accessed by a trail that heads up the hill to the right and tees off from on top of the cliff.
