Mike Haddick named general manager for Summer Grove Golf Club in Newnan, Georgia

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Affiniti Golf Partners has promoted Mike Haddick to general manager for Summer Grove Golf Club, an upscale semi-private club in the south Atlanta suburb of Newnan, GA.

Haddick has spent the last five years at the club, most recently serving as head golf professional. Prior to Summer Grove, Haddick worked in golf operations at Port Royal Golf Club, a 54-hole resort facility on Hilton Head Island, S.C.

A Pittsburgh native, Haddick is a graduate of West Virginia University and a Class-A member of the PGA of America. Locally he is a member of the Newnan-Cowetta Chamber of Commerce.

Summer Grove, designed by Joe Jemsek and Jeff Burton, was named Best New Public Golf Course by Golf Digest in 2000. The 18-hole, par 72, championship layout stretches to 6,954 yards from the back tees.

Summer Grove Golf Club is the centerpiece of SummerGrove, a 1,400-acre gated community just off I-85 in Newnan, Ga. Amenities at SummerGrove include a private 100-acre lake, three swimming pools, tennis courts, parks, playgrounds and miles of pedestrian paths.

Affiniti, one of the fastest growing golf management companies in the country, was retained earlier this year to support the operation of Summer Grove Golf Club by Jemsek Golf, the original developer of the course.
