What to Expect: The Golf Club of Georgia is a high-end private facility located in the wealthy suburb of Alpharetta north of Atlanta. The Creekside course is Arthur Hills’ second effort at the Golf Club of Georgia and was opened for play two years after the Lakeside course. Creekside has a much different feel than Lakeside’s upland track. Creekside is carved through the lowlands and wetlands along Big Creek and boasts mounded fairways and challenging approaches in a Carolina style layout. Creekside is generally considered the more difficult course with several forced carries over the wetlands and tougher landing zones to hit. If you are looking for beauty then it is tough to compete with Lakeside, if you’re looking for a stout Carolina Low Country challenge then punch your ticket to Creekside.
