Situated less than an hour’s drive northeast of downtown Atlanta, the 18-hole layout at the Country Club of the South was the first Jack Nicklaus Signature course to be unveiled in the vicinity of the state capital when it opened for play with nine holes in 1987. Six months later, the Golden Bear returned to sign off the project by playing the new back nine.

Set out within a gated community, the course was the venue for the first four editions of the now defunct Nationwide Championship on the Senior PGA Tour, starting in 1991. It’s reckoned the players thought the 2nd hole was one of the toughest on the senior circuit, evidenced by Gary Player and Lee Trevino both scoring 7s during their first practice round at the club.

In recent years, the club embarked on a major renovation of the fairways, practice facilities and tees with a multi-million dollar investment in its infrastructure. As part of the course upgrade, the Mizuno Corporation formed a partnership to build the most modern, state-of-the-art training facility in the region.

Jack Nicklaus will forever be associated with greatness on the golf course, but it’s his design work that should also be remembered in equal measure to his magnificent competitive achievements on the links.
