It kind of depends on where you are in Atlanta, since everything tends to be kind of spread out.
The north side of town has several solid courses (East Roswell, Oregon, Alexander, probably in that order) with different flavors. East Roswell is tight woods with rolling terrain--but navigation is a little difficult right now since the city is doing construction in a corner of the park (might only be 15-16 holes playable, hopefully someone else will chime in). Oregon is fairly open; its major draw is having two sets of pads and baskets, in effect making 72 holes. Alexander is more of a beginner/intermediate course near Lawrenceville. Nice place to play, but nothing really special.
If you're willing to drive a little further, North GA Canopy Tours in Lula is one of the best courses in the state. Par 61 with some big open bombs, some tight woods, and some ace runs. It's $5 for the day, but well worth it. For now, it's the best playable course within an hour of Atlanta.
If you're inside the perimeter and have less time, try Perkerson Park--it's a par 59 with 2 sets of teepads and a good mixture of open and wooded holes. Bring a map. This is my favorite place to play in the area.
If you want to bomb and are on the south side of town, JP Moseley is a par 61 with about 6 tight woods holes and the rest very open.
If you really wanted stories and a disc golf experience, it's about 2-2.5 hours to the International Disc Golf Center near Augusta. 3 championship courses and the PDGA headquarters on site.
