The Takeaway: The lesser of the two courses at the club, Creekside doesn’t have the hole designs or visuals to compete with the Lakeside 18. Designed as if a course in the Low Country of the Carolinas, Arthur Hills should have just designed a course for Georgia’s towering pines and engaging elevation changes. Grade C+
Designer: Arthur Hills in 1993

What to Expect: The Golf Club of Georgia is a high-end private facility located in the wealthy suburb of Alpharetta north of Atlanta. Creekside was the second course to go in and 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.
