Owned and operated by the Cupit family since 1973, Rivermont Golf Club lies less than an hour’s drive north of downtown Atlanta in Fulton County, close to the meandering waters of the Chattahoochee River.

Joe Lee set out the original course but this layout was completely redesigned by Mike Riley (with input from owner Chris Culpit) in 2006, transforming an already well-regarded track locally into one of the best in state.

The club converted its greens to ultra-dwarf Bermuda in 2014 and a number of new bunkers and tees have been added more recently. An ongoing tree removal programme is also in place to improve general playing conditions.

Rivermont has hosted dozens of USGA qualifiers for a variety of events, such as the US Open, US Senior Open, the US Mid-Amateur, the US Women’s Mid-Amateur and the Men's Four-Ball Championship.

Highlight holes on the course include the par three 4th with its new Redan-style green, the par four 9th featuring a Punchbowl green, the short par four 11th and the drop shot par three 17th, where long off the tee is lethal.

Rivermont Golf is never boring. I’ve played it as a member hundreds of times and it plays differently each time. Fading drives set the holes up differently than a draw does.

After Riley’s redesign/tweaking of Joe Lee’s design, natural grass areas, bunkers, forced carries and other strategic changes were implemented to place a higher premium on tee shot and layup accuracy. Still, tee to green, Rivermont can also play relatively easy if you are hitting the ball straight. However, like Augusta, putting becomes the challenge that let’s you know that the course is not a lay down but a real challenge for golfers of all skill levels.

Similar to Augusta National in a couple of ways: you must learn where to aim to get close to the hole in some pin locations. Also, the course might appear easy from the fairway, but the adventure begins with putting the greens. Especially when the greens are rolling at 12 or better on the stimpmeter.
