Course Info:
Current status as of 7/2/2012:
Course is fully playable from long tees with all holes having permanent baskets, signage, carpet teepads. Trails have been cut between holes and course is easily navigable. Vandalism has been repaired. We're in the process of having a tree professional clear all remaining dead trees and tree limbs from fairways. After these are cut, several changes will be implemented to improve and lengthen holes, mostly on the front 9: holes 1-3, 5, 7-10 will be affected. Please come out to a workday if you can make it, as I'm estimating another 1,000 hours of work volunteer work is needed to complete the installation, on top of ~1,000 hours YTD 2012. I can attribute 70% of those hours to 4 people ... we need help, still.

Items coming up on the workdays:
Tree cutting -- in process, should be mostly cut by 7/4/2012
Installing granite stairs. We were gifted ~5 tons of granite chunks by the city and will be installing stairs in steep areas
Installing short teepads
Clearing edges of fairways
Improving signage
Building information kiosk
Building benches from logs we've cut down
Building retaining walls from logs we've cut down
Building bag holes (from logs we've cut down)

The course is very playable already and is getting lots of play.

Directions

Perkerson is located in Downtown ATL approximately 2 miles SW of Turner Field in the Capitol View neighborhood

>From I-75/85, exit on University Ave #244 (approx 3 miles south of junction with I-20). Head West (right) off the exit. After 1/2 mile take a LEFT (south) on Metropolitan Pkwy at major intersection. After 1/2 mile take a RIGHT (west) on Deckner Ave at light. Park is on the left. Take 2nd entrance and park in gravel lot by the stream.

To get to 1st hole, walk downstream to where the 2 bridges are (approx 300' from gravel lot). You'll see the practice basket at the bottom of the cliff, and hole 1 tees off from the top of the cliff.

Oohh my aching arm! Can I buy some extra strokes? Or muligans? That would be good for fund raising! An extra $10 a person would be a lot of cash!

Course condition update as of 6/6/2012:

The course is fully playable and improving by the week. It will be improving at a rapid rate now as all initial clearing is complete. Chains have been replaced on all baskets. Each hole has a carpet teepad in long position, next tee signs, and trails between holes.

Coming next is short position teepads and better tee signs

Download and bring this map if you are playing: http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course_files/2590/624ba11a.pdf

Top post updated to reflect current conditions. Course will be dramatically improving over the next month, as we're clearing most of the trees this week. Front 9 will be playing much harder, with overall par to 61:
Hole 1 to par 4
Hole 2 & 3 change, bringing OB much more into play
Hole 5's tee moves downhill, making the shot better & tougher
Hole 7 canopy lifted and long tee added (+100')
Hole 8 shorter and tighter
Hole 9 to a big par 4
