Billy Fuller Golf Design



The completion of a more than two year renovation project at the Lake Lanier Islands' golf course formally called Emerald Pointe has arrived. Straddling the line of incorporating Lake Lanier's shores and inlets into the new course design without threatening average golfers with the potential for dozens of lost balls and infinite penalty shots was architect Billy Fuller.


"The water makes the property so unique and offers challenge to the golf course," Fuller said. "The goal is to strategize so the really good player has ample challenge and the average golfer has fun maneuvering the water."


More subtle than the water, but unique to the new Legacy course is its Mini-Verde Bermuda grass greens. It's a coastal grass making its way to courses further inland.  


 The redesign of the course will create more stunning views of Lake Lanier and will return to the Golden Era of golf. Some of the new features include completely renovated greens with new Mini-Verde Bermuda, larger tee boxes, new bunker design - Billy Bunkers,  additional yardage to lengthen golf course, new concrete cart paths, state-of-the-art-irrigation and a new golf cart fleet.
