Atlanta Athletic Club is nothing short of great

The course was nothing short of spectacular. They had the U.S amateur here as well. When I came here to play I was amazed how organized the clubhouse was however it is ranked one of the top clubhouses in the country. The chipping area is great and putting is fast. The driving range has titelist range balls. The course was very I mean very nice. The rough was deep and the putting greens where fast. I loved everything about the course.

AAC is a special place!

Wow, Atlanta Athletic Club is incredible. Everything here is way more than I expected. The clubhouse is massive yet still holds its intimate history. The practice facilities are second to none in Georgia. And the course couldn't have been in more pristine condition. As expected, the greens were rolling at PGA tournament speeds which only adds to the difficulty of the course. The quality and condition of the course is top notch. Although we only played the Highlands course (home of the 2001 and 2011 PGA Champs), Ive heard some actually prefer the non-PGA course!

Its quite exclusively private so I hope I get the chance to play here again someday!

Tremendous facility, championship course

Always an excellent experience. Staff is great, greens are best bermuda in the state, course difficulty is not for hackers. Obviously, this is one of the finer facilities and golf experiences in Georgia, if not the country.
