The Georgia Club recognized as among best by Golfweek Magazine

STATHAM, Ga. -- The Chancellors Course at The Georgia Club has been recognized among the "Best Courses You Can Play" in Georgia, according to Golfweek Magazine's recently released annual rankings.

Designed by acclaimed golf course architect Denis Griffiths, the 27-hole Chancellors Course is the centerpiece of The Georgia Club, an award-winning 1,500-acre planned community located east of Atlanta and just minutes from the historic college town of Athens, home to the University of Georgia.

The original 18 holes at the Chancellors Course debuted in 2001, with Griffiths adding a third nine in 2006 to complete the planned 27-hole routing. The three nines at The Georgia Club are named Red, Silver and Black, a nod to the school colors at the University of Georgia.

"We are thrilled with the national-class recognition gained from Golfweek," says The Georgia Club General Manager Kevin Cartledge. "Their evaluation certainly echoes the view of our club members and daily golfers who enjoy the course's architectural pedigree and consummate conditioning."

The current Golfweek ranking has The Georgia Club sharing "Best" honors with such other elite Georgia courses as Sea Island Golf Club and Great Waters at Reynolds Plantation.

Golfweek annually releases a series of golf course rankings, including Best Classic Course, Best Modern Course and Best Resort Course. In compiling these lists, Golfweek has distinguished itself from other publications in terms of the depth of its rating criteria, the integrity of the process and the extent to which it has developed a community of raters through educational workshops and national meetings.

Golfweek's eclectic ranking panel consists of 675 voters from seven countries. They rely on 10 criteria to rate a golf course, including overall land plan, variety and memorability of golf holes, conditioning and ecology, and the "Walk in the park test", which rates the sense of the course as worthy of spending four hours on it.

The Georgia Club is managed by Atlanta-based Affiniti Golf Partners, one of the fastest growing golf management companies in the country.
