Really great people are hardly flamboyant. They don’t talk about what they do, they don’t brag about how good they are, they keep a low profile and they end up always surprising others. This much is true, as well, with really great golf courses. These golf courses are hardly advertised, most times underrated, but those who have spent golf vacations here all testify of their greatness. They are like precious treasures waiting to be discovered just like the Georgia National Golf Club.
The 18-hole, par 71 Dennis Griffiths design is laden with beautiful views of Georgia greens and views, coupled with a challenging but friendly medium length layout. The Georgia National Golf Club has three sets of tees to accommodate players of various handicaps and stretches to 6,874 yards from the longest tees. One game played here is enough to make players decide this is their favorite golf vacation destination.
Georgia National Golf Club, great as it is, is not only ideal for golf trips. It is also best for championship tournaments, already having hosted the Women’s US Open Qualifier in 2009, the Yamaha Atlanta Open , and the PGA Player Ability test in 2010. Despite all that, Georgia National never comes off parading its excellence. Like the true gem of Georgia that it is, it waits to be discovered, explored, cherished. Making it a favorite is a natural reaction, almost like reflex. It does not claim merits, it only delivers. And it’s the golfers who have experienced this paradise that named it one of the greatest, which in itself, is a true mark of true greatness.
