All of the suggestions you've been given are good, and there are other worthwhile options as well. As has been mentioned, the Atlanta metro area is huge, the courses are scattered about mostly in the outer suburbs (with the exception of Perkerson) and traffic is frequently terrible. So I'd base my choice, in your position, partly on where I'd be staying and what other areas I'd be visiting.
If you're staying inside the city, East Roswell Park and Redan are probably the most accessible (the Chamblee United Methodist Church course is the closest in, but it's a short nine-hole course that most would say doesn't measure up to other area courses). Everyone who plays Perkerson (I haven't yet) raves about it, so if you can work Wednesday night into your schedule, that'd be a great choice.
If you're in the northern suburbs (Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Roswell, Alpharetta, etc.), East Roswell Park would probably be the first choice, with some arguing for Central Park in Cumming -- Wills Park in Alpharetta can be hard to navigate if you're not familiar with it, and is hard to play when the park's busy (i.e., almost always). If you're in the northeastern suburbs (say from Duluth/Suwanee over to Lawrenceville) then Alexander Park would probably be the top recommendation. On the east side, in Tucker, Decatur, Lilburn, Stone Mountain, etc., then Redan is a no-brainer. To the south of town, J.P. Moseley would probably be the choice. West of town, out toward Douglasville, White Oak (another one I haven't played personally) is becoming a favorite of a lot of people, it seems. If you're in the western parts of Cobb County, you could check out Oregon Park.
