Couldn’t believe there was not an Atlanta-specific Roll Call thread!
There are pluses and minuses to living anywhere but one of the big pluses of living in the Atlanta Metro Area is the abundance of great course, both public and private, as well as a huge number of avid golfers.
I live in-town but belong to St Ives in Johns Creek and have anytime-access over at River Club in Suwannee. Both are great tracks and River Club in particular is really special. The USGA does Open state qualifiers there and even pros in the area (Cink) take advantage of the fantastic practice facilities.
I am always up for a game. I think I understand Wolf Hammer but have yet to play it so I would love to get that going. Also always up for trading rounds at other clubs in the area.
No idea. Only other one I’ve heard of first-hand is Sugarloaf. He has lockers at both Sugarloaf and RC. I’m sure he gets around town, there are so many fantastic clubs. That wasn’t my point. I was just saying that I’d love to get a game together (need to play wolfhammer for the first time) and was suggesting where I have access to as an option sometime. Love playing as many of the great Atlanta tracks as possible.
I’ve been looking for someone to try out Wolfhammer with! My usual group just can’t bring themselves to play anything other than Wolf. I live in-town too, and I usually just play anywhere with a cheap GN tee time. I’d love to get a Wolfhammer game together with some people actually interested in figuring it out on the course.
Just graduated from UGA and live in Atlanta. I’ve quickly learned that if you don’t belong to a club it is much better to drive 30-45 minutes otp if you want to have an enjoyable round. That being said I’d love to play some of the private clubs in the area. I managed to get on Crabapple and was blown away. It’s not much but I can get you some free rounds at the UGA course, Cobblestone and Brookstone.
Grew up playing the Stone, love the layout. Ever since it got bought out by American golf they refuse to put any money into it. It could be a gem if they could keep it conditioned. Also Cartersville CC is the mecca of good Atlanta golf if you can go. Absolute gem of a course, I looked at joining last year and the GM told me they have 120+ members that play under an 8 handicap…thats insane.
I`ll be playing some daytime rounds in south of Atlanta area (staying in forsyth) 15th to 19th Okt.
Hit me up if you want to play a round, here or my email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have very high hopes for the new Bobby Jones. It’ll be really good for the area which includes no public driving range/practice facilities. In-town Atlanta is great for private courses but really lacks solid public options / practices options.
I’m guessing this project is going to be a home run and this model will be copied across the country.
Current situation: In town, super valuable real estate, old course, past its prime, old and small clubhouse, limited land, no driving range, etc Classic intown muni course.
Future: brand new course, reversible 9 holes that will play as 18 different holes. bigtime driving range, short game area, etc. Brand new, large clubhouse with legit bar/restaurant and event space. Georgia Golf HOF will be in there and so will the Ga State Golf Assoc headquarters.
24 years old and considering joining a private club after getting abused by the public golf in Atlanta every weekend. Any good recommendations?
The courses I am realistically considering as far as reasonable price points and quality of golf are Pinetree, Berkley, and Rivermont.
I’ve never played Rivermont but it’s up my way and looks pretty good driving by. I got some info from them earlier this year when we were looking around for swim/tennis memberships. The rates seem pretty reasonable but it’s not currently in the cards for us. I’d be happy to forward the emails from them if you’d like.
