Golf Club of Georgia (Lakeside) (Alpharetta, Georgia)

The Takeaway:  The Golf Club of Georgia is a high-end private facility located in the wealthy suburb of Alpharetta north of Atlanta. The Lakeside course was the first track to go in and features a beautiful collection of par threes with a design that has clearly defined landing areas and strategy. The back nine features some of Arthur Hills finest work and includes the 607 yard par five 11th that Golf Magazine recognized as one of the best 500 golf holes in the world. Forecaddies are provided for the patrons that will help you read the lightning fast greens that some PGA Tour players practice on in preparation of Masters week at Augusta National. 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.  Grade B+
