Fazio private course mastery in the heart of Georgia
St. Ives CC is a private country club in Johns Creek, Georgia which is about 30 minutes north of Atlanta. The course is a fairly exclusive/ high-end private club with a big-time course to go with it. The day we played was GSGA member play-day and it was quite a privilege to get on here even though it was a wet day. Checking in upon arrival inside the massive mansion (or as some call it - a clubhouse) was beautiful and sits on one of the higher points of the property so you get a great view of the practice area, 1st tee, and 18th green.
As for the course, the greens had been punched in early July and were still having some trouble coming, but you can tell, they just needed a bit more time to heal. The course layout was really fantastic and had a good variety of holes to play. The par-3s were a blast with 2 of them being peninsula greens surrounded by water. The sand was very soft and consistent throughout the course, which I unfortunately know this first hand.
Overall, a great Fazio design and an excellent time to play with the PGA Championship being played at Quail Hollow this weekend!
