Ansley Golf Club: Settindown Creek

Roswell, GA Private

Overview

The late architect Bob Cupp, an elite golfer in his youth, was extremely talented at building tournament-worthy golf courses. Settindown Creek, the "country" course of the intown Ansley Golf Club located in the suburbs far north of Atlanta, is no exception (see the slope of 150). The club has hosted a number of prominent state and national events, including the 2005 U.S. Women's Amateur won by Morgan Pressel. It's a tough course that requires controlled approaches into greens surrounded by creeks, ponds, penal bunkers and deep rough. Two thirds of the holes play through the flood plain of the Little River, the other third over typically hilly, wooded north Georgia terrain. The original plan for the course had the holes numbered differently. The property straddled the county line, with most of the course on the Cherokee County side. At the time, however, Cherokee was a dry county, so the club moved the location of the clubhouse across the line into the smaller (and wetter) Fulton County section, necessitating a reording of the holes and turning, unfortunately, one of the course's weakest holes into the current 18th.
