In response to the review from Paul M.:
The courses are not always cart path only....perhaps the day of your visit, but definitely not always.
We ask that shirts be tucked in to maintain a level of professionalism that our club/courses deserve. We, as members, also include children observe this rule.
Regarding the disposal of cigar/cigarettes....because some people don't always recognize the importance of this, it is noted as a friendly reminder, not to try to treat anyone as a child. (We also highly discourage children not to smoke cigars/cigarettes, just in case that was in question).
This is a great club, with phenomenal courses, accompanied by a wonderful staff....and in light of having an excellent, proven, professional new club owner......I can't imagine any negative comments from anyone that would be a good fit to join us.
I went to the Golf Club of Georgia on Monday as a participant in the Cadillac Innovation Golf Clinic (yelp.com/biz/cadillac-in…). While I didn't play the course, I got to walk, take lessons, and practice shots on many of its holes, driving range, and practice putting green and short game area, as well as explore the clubhouse, golf shop, and men's locker room and grill. As with any private golf club, the facilities and course conditions are top-notch.
The club was established in 1990 and the clubhouse is grandiose and traditional. However, it's not as outrageously big as some newer clubhouses are, such as the one at TPC Sugarloaf. The dining area, which has a plethora of windows, looks out onto lush lawns and the practice area and the men's locker room looks over No. 9 green (Lakeside). Speaking of which, there are two 18's on this course: Creekside and Lakeside, both designed by Arthur Hills.
We spent most of our time on the Lakeside course, which is the more scenic and modern of the two tracks. The course was in outstanding condition from the fairways to the bunkers and to the greens, which were firm and fast by the time we got to them in the early afternoon.
I enjoyed exploring the men's locker room where I ran into 2008 Masters champ Trevor Immelman and golf instructor David Leadbetter. I also noticed some golf bags on display with names of various amateurs including my hometown's very own Drew Weaver (High Point, NC). I was surprised to see his name here and later found out that he played against Colt Knost in the 2008 Georgia Cup, which pits the reigning U.S. Amateur champ against the reigning British Amateur champ. The Georgia Cup started in 1998 and has been played at this club each year ever since.
Overall, I found the staff at the Golf Club of Georgia to be very hospitable and welcoming to our large group of attendees and they were great hosts for the golf clinic.
The Golf Club of Georgia is a fantastic golf club offering 36 holes of championship golf. Lakeside and Creekside are two great examples of Georgia golf with rolling hills, mature trees and enough water to provide errant balls with submerged final resting spots. Bring plenty of balls when you play here!
The club house is well maintained with many artifacts from the Georgia Cup that the Club hosts each year prior to the Masters for the American and British amateur champions.
The food is quality fare that is well prepared such as steaks, seafood and the menu includes Georgia traditions such as a delicious peach cobbler.
If I lived in Atlanta, the Golf Club of Georgia would be my home club...
I used to be the sous chef here. The kitchen puts out GREAT food. Soups from scratch, sandwich and entrees of the day keep you wondering just what you have to have now and what you may have to try next time. Chef Vicky - Audrey - Carlos - Celina put a lot of love in all of the food. If they still do the Cuban sandwich and the grilled peach salad you won't be disappointed. Tip your servers they will take good care of you.
Outstanding golf challenge and great course conditions.
1. lakeside course is more scenic and fun
2. creekside is much more target and challenging golf that is mentally challenging.
overall course conditions are phenomenal.
yes, there are rules...so you have to tuck in your shirt, big deal, but you can smoke a cigar and cigarette in the lounge with all the flat screens in the mens bar.
Whats so wrong about that?
Anyways, i would recommend this place, as I got to play as a guest of a friend of mine and it was fantastic
