Golf Club of Georgia - Return To Course Page

Alpharetta, GA

Hole #: 01

Par: 5 / Yards: 528

The round begins with a par five that sets up well for a go at birdie. Play the drive toward the left edge of the right fairway bunker. Avoid going too far left because The fairway quickly slopes toward the creek. The second shot should be a fairway wood or a long iron that sets up a wedge shot into this dramatically sloped, two-level green. On this green, it's critical that the approach shot be on the same level as the flagstick.

Even though the green is out of sight, the view from the tee is scenic, with the tall, proud mix of pines and oaks to the left and the waving slopes down along the right side of the fairway.

Hole #: 02

Par: 4 / Yards: 339

The fairway bunker seen from the tee is a signature Arthur Hills feature. Therefore, the decision of how much to challenge this fairway bunkering, especially here, must be made. The best tee shot is one that lands in front of the immediate bunker or to the right of the bunker. This smart strategy leaves a short iron to a moderately flat green.

Look toward the green as the cart path crosses the fairway for the signature vista of this hole. And anywhere near the babbling creek look toward the hole for other peaceful vistas.

Hole #: 03

Par: 3 / Yards: 192

The focus is on placing the tee shot as close to the flagstick as possible. The curved portion of the front edge of the green slopes off severely. Weak shots that land on the slope quickly roll down into the hillside rough as if they were being yanked by a string. The rest of the green, however, is fairly flat, but fast and tricky.

The best view on the fine little par three doesn’t occur naturally, but it’s worth seeking out. Stand behind the green and look back over this kidney-shaped green up the hill and to the tee boxes.

Hole #: 04

Par: 3 / Yards: 173

A short, scenic par 3. Hit the green, should be easy par. But water on the right is scary and avoiding the water can cause pulls to the left..which is a bunker and two big swales that make up and down for par real, real tough.

Hole #: 05

Par: 5 / Yards: 505

Short but tricky par 5. Ever watch the Masters? Think of hole #10, the long par 4. Now add a few yards and call it a par 5. This is it. Hit a nice long, draw off the tee, reaching in two is pretty easy. If you can't do that...hit a long iron to the flat spot out front. Laying up is not a bad call here. Trees on both sides of the fairway will gobble up any wayward shots, so be confident before you choose your strategy. Missing short on your approach is the best miss...long, left, or right means a penalty stroke and a drop.

Hole #: 06

Par: 4 / Yards: 408

A long, tough par 4. Remember those make or break holes? Here is #3. It's a doozy. Your tee shot has to be long and straight. Again, either too far left or too far right is out of play. If you always slice, don't hit your driver. Play it as a par 5 if you have to...you'll thank me in the end. Your approach shot has to carry a diaboical ravine. Folks, this hole can eat your lunch in a bad way...bogey isn't bad here.

Hole #: 07

Par: 3 / Yards: 164

A medium length par 3. The hole plays slightly downhill, but don't underestimate your club here. Your only real trouble is on the right (unless you duff it into the gulch in front of the tee!). Quick green which slopes back to front. Two points of interest. Check out the deck on the house sitting behind the hole...and the flagstick is the longest you've ever seen.

Hole #: 08

Par: 4 / Yards: 410

A tough par 4. Your drive has to carry not only water, but deep swales that bury you if you get caught in them. Your approach has is all uphill, with a bunker front left and a big fallout area on the right. Do not go right!

Alpharetta, GA

Hole #: 09

Par: 4 / Yards: 379

A short par 4. For all of you who fade the ball, here's your hole. Hit a driver or 3 wood off the tee on this downhill dogleg right hole. Your approach is pretty simple too except if you yank it left, then you're dead. This green is tricky, two tiers and slopes back to front.

Hole #: 10

Par: 5 / Yards: 531

Straight away par 5. Obvious statement, don't go right. The ravine in front of the tee extends all the way down the right side. Your tee shot should stay middle left if possible. You have twenty yards to the right of the fairway trap for big hitters, otherwise, hit short of it, hit a middle iron second shot, and use a wedge or nine iron into the green. For your tee shot and approach shot, left is better, for your second shot...right is better than left.

Hole #: 11

Par: 4 / Yards: 333

Don't let your ego write checks your swing can't cash on this short par 4. If you play this hole for 4, you will probably make 4. If you play it for 3, you might make 7! Big hitters have a real advantage here cause carrying the ravine isn't tough. But a mis-hit of any type, a slight pull or big slice means you are out a golf ball and a whole bunch of strokes. The green is also tough with lots of undulations.

Hole #: 12

Par: 3 / Yards: 202

Toughest par 3 on the course. The most obvious obstacle you see is the bunker that guards the front right of the green. There are small swales on the left side of the green that might kick your ball on if you hit them, so missing left isn't so bad.

Hole #: 13

Par: 4 / Yards: 457

Remember those do or die 4 holes. Here is the fourth. This is a long par 4 that makes you drive it out of a chute to a fairway that slopes right. The approach is to a small green with bunkers front, left, and right with o.b. just right of that bunker, and more trouble behind the green. Aim left of the green, there is a slight hill that might kick your ball the right way. Right of the green is bunkered at best.

Hole #: 14

Par: 3 / Yards: 143

Easy par 3. Hit a short iron to this cake par 3. The huge ravine tells you not to be short, but trust me that the hole plays 5-10 yards shorter than you think.

Alpharetta, GA

Hole #: 15

Par: 4 / Yards: 348

Short par 4. Hit a drive anywhere on top of the hill, and you have a short iron into this green. Do your best to stay right, as anything left feeds more left which has your only real trouble on this hole.

Alpharetta, GA

Hole #: 16

Par: 4 / Yards: 418

A medium length par 4. It's downhill all the way. Drive near the bunkers on the left, but not too far left or your approach is blind. Whatever distance you have to the pin, go one club less. The hole plays shorter..and the green slopes away from you. Trouble is long and to the right.

Hole #: 17

Par: 4 / Yards: 381

A short par 4. Here is where you need a good drive. Get it to the top of the hill, and you have an easy short iron. If you don't make the hill, it's a blind shot to a dangerous green. Check the pin placement carefully cause this is a wide but short green. Safest shot is to miss a little right, and let the hill kick it onto the green.

Alpharetta, GA

Hole #: 18

Par: 5 / Yards: 559

A tricky but true risk-reward hole. Keep your drive left since everything slopes right towards a ravine. If you are playing blue tees (or whites) a long 260yd+ drive will leave you in good position to go for it in two. Otherwise, layup on the left side of the ravine and have a short iron approach in.
