Hawks Ridge Golf Club is highly polished and Bob Cupp has tried to create the olde worlde sophistication of classical architecture with a twist of modernity.
Tom Fazio’s 18-hole layout at The Farm Golf Club dates back to 1988 and it plays a lot tougher than the type of course found at many of the architect’s more modern residential-based golf projects.
Host to the 1990 US Women’s Open, the Riverside forms one of two great golf courses at the 36-hole Atlanta Athletic Club. Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Snr, the layout was renovated by his son Rees in 2003.
Formed by Bob Cupp in 1988, the front nine holes on the Settindown Creek course at Ansley Golf Club lie alongside Little River with the back nine routed over more elevated terrain.
Exactly half the holes on the Jack Nicklaus-designed Great Waters course at Reynolds on Lake Oconee are dramatically routed along the Lake Oconee shoreline.
There are two areas of challenge at the Ford Plantation Club where the front nine winds around lakes and the back nine is routed around old plantation rice fields.
Located 22 miles to the north of Capital City Club’s old Brookhaven golf course on the outskirts of Atlanta, the 18 holes of the Crabapple layout comprise a demanding new millennium Tom Fazio design.
The golf course at the Currahee Club sits on a very hilly site above Lake Hartwell and Jim Fazio did very well to route the 18 holes around such a heavily contoured property.
Champions Retreat Golf Club opened in 2005 with three 9-hole circuits, each laid out by a different golfing great. The Nicklaus/Palmer-designed Bluff and Island nines edge out Gary Player’s Creek to form the premier course.
Formed in 1973, Rivermont Golf Club's Joe Lee-designed layout has hosted dozens of US Open local qualifying, US Senior Open sectional qualifying and Georgia State Golf Association events down the years.
