The Tom Fazio-designed golf course at White Columns Country Club has consistently been one of Atlanta’s top golf courses. Situated on 250 acres of rolling hills, towering Georgia pines, and picturesque lakes and streams, the 7,053-yard, par-72 course clearly shows what a talented designer can do with a great piece of land. The course has a distinctly traditional feel and features a superb mix of short and long holes that force golfers to use every club in their bag.
Fazio, widely regarded as the top modern-day golf course architect, has always believed that "golf courses should reflect the natural beauty of their environments." This philosophy is clearly evident from the elevated first tee all the way to the dogleg left 18th. Fazio wisely utilized the naturally undulating terrain to create a challenging golf course that is also playable thanks to wide Bermuda fairways and expansive Crenshaw Bentgrass greens. Impeccable playing conditions, contrasting transitional areas, and spectacular vistas from elevated tees and greens enhance the design.
"White Columns is an excellent course for both scratch players and high handicappers," says Mitch Cook, Head Golf Professional at White Columns. "It’s a classic design that could easily date to 1930 as it features generous room off the tee, but it is definitely a shotmaker’s course as you move into the approach shots. What I love most is it always has a different feel and you never get tired of the great experience you have each time you play."
The event will be played as a 4 person scramble.
