Opened in 1987, The Country Club of the South is an Atlanta-area golf
course that is graced with unsurpassed natural beauty. Of all the Jack Nicklaus
golf courses in Georgia, this Atlanta golf course presents one of the most
challenging layouts. Lush pines and hardwoods, rolling hills, lakes, streams
and granite outcroppings were preserved to provide spectacular natural hazards
and scenery. Voted one of the "Top 20 Best Courses in Georgia"
by Golf Digest, our 7,000-yard world-class championship Atlanta
golf course hosted the Champions Tour Nationwide Championship from 1991 to
1994. All these features and more combine to make The Country Club of the
South the best of all Atlanta golf clubs.
