    The course opened for play

    already noted as one of
    Atlanta’s premier golf cours-
    es. The putting greens are
    Bent grass and the perime-
    ter roughs and bunker
    faces are reminiscent of
    many legendary Scottish designs. The course meas-
    ures 7,203 yards and the tee boxes, fairways and
    roughs are lushly covered in Bermuda, promoting
    higher ball elevation and faster divot recovery.

                                      Macon
                                       Venture south to Macon for the great historic city
                                       of the American South. Attractions include 10,000-
                                       year-old Indian mounds, the largest collection of
                                       ancient African artifacts, the top 40 musical hits
                                       of Little Richard and REM at the Georgia Music Hall
                                       of Fame and remember the greats at the Georgia
                                       Sports Hall of Fame.

                                      In Between
                                       Between Atlanta and Macon there is plenty to keep
                                       you busy. Stately Oaks, in neighboring Jonesboro, is
                                  c    that city’s response to the question, “Where is Tara?”
                                       If you prefer the outdoors, travel south to fish at
                                       Jackson Lake, one of the best fishing lakes in
                                       Georgia. You will also want to visit the oldest state
                                       park in the United States—Indian Springs—and enjoy
                                       the scenic waterfall on the Towaliga River at High
                                       Falls State Park.
