The Golf Club of Georgia: Creekside

Alpharetta, GA, United States Private

Overview

The Creekside course has one of the most peripatetic routings imaginable. Peripatetic means "traveling from place to place" and that's what the course does, moving one direction through pine preserves, traveling 200 yards through the trees and emerging somewhere else, then jumping across a wetland to yet another parcel of land, and so on. Eventually you're lost. That's part of the course's mystique, the ability to turn golfers in circles and seclude them from the bustle of the surrounding north Atlanta suburbs. But there is a lot of jumping around, as in, repeatedly hitting drives and approaches over the creeks and wetlands to islands of turf and then driving around them to see where they ended up. Creekside is not for the weak player or one who struggles to get the ball airborn. Work has been done recently to create more landing space, including at the par 5 fifth that used to require a 200-yard carry to reach the fairway, and then another 200+ yard shot over wetlands to reach a small second fairway, followed by a third shot across the axis of one of the shallowest greens on the course with a ravine behind it.
