AAC is my home course, and it never gets old playing Highlands. The host of 3 PGAs, the 1976 US Open, and the 2014 US Am, Highlands is a difficult but fair test of your game. With strategically placed bunkers and water all throughout the golf course, you have to constantly be focused. There are no ‘easy’ birdies, and pars can sometimes feel just as good as a birdie. The conditions are as good as anywhere in the US. The greens are firm and fast year round, and the fairways are pure. In my opinion, Highlands is the 2nd best course in Georgia behind Augusta National. Off the course, the practice facilities are world-class, especially with the new chipping greens on the north tee. 2 fantastic courses and great ways to improve. I’m very lucky to be able to spend everyday here.
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.
