Atlanta Athlectic Club DG Course

Postby CD10 » Tue Jun 07, 2011 9:48 am

Just got word that the Atlanta Athletic Club will be installing a dg course across the street from the country club. My boss is an AAC member and put in a recommendation on what to do with the property a few months back. It recently got approved but the installation will not start until after the PGA Championship. If you have ever driven by there it is perfect disc golf terrain. I will post more info as it becomes available.

I have driven past that piece of land so many times and it just looked like it would be a great place for a course. It it only ever used when they have big golf tournaments there, the rest of the time it's just empty.

My sentiments exactly. I have done the same! Nice rolling hills, cut grass, mature trees. I kind of suprised the CC is going for it. Who knows, maybe I'll see John Smotz pick up disc golf now!

I wonder if the beverage cart will venture across the street?

Word on the streets is that the "pound for pound" greatest disc golfer of all time (and possibly the straight up best disc golfer ever from GA) will be designing this course. I hope that rumor is true.

Thanks for the compliment Dollar but I won't be helping design this course. However, I do live very close to this tract of land so I am looking forward to maybe playing it one day. Hope it will be open to the public.

Every time I drive by that land I mention to my wife how I want to play golf out there!!!! This would be phenomenal! The large field with the trees is obvious but I wonder how far back it goes past the tree line? I would be 4 miles away from this gem. Anyone know a good divorce lawyer, because I am sure I'll need one.

I hope the tree line in back is in play other wise it's just a wide open field with a smattering of big oaks.

We called the course pro and they said they have spoke about this in the meetings but they never approved the course....
