The heart of Atlanta Country Club is the world class golf course. The course has a rich history of tournament participation, having hosted the PGA and USGA events. For 30 years it hosted the Atlanta Classic, a PGA event. The inaugural Tournament Players Championship, the USGA Women's Amateur and Senior Men's Amateur were also held at the Atlanta Country Club. Since the beginning, the ACC golf professionals have exhibited the essence of golf. Davis Love Jr. (from 1965 to 1977) was a skilled player and world renowned teacher. John Gerring (from 1978 to 1992) is a Master Professional and was 1981 PGA Professional of the year. Bill Johnstone (from 1993 to 2009) is a well respected PGA Master Professional. Our newest Head Golf Professional is Scott Schroeder, who came in May, 2010. Scott is an experienced Head Professional, an accomplished player and excellent teacher. The Chattahoochee River is nearby and historic Sope Creek meanders its way through the course. The uniqueness and beauty of each hole, with bent grass greens and Bermuda fairways, complement the challenge of playing at ACC.The five choices of tee boxes are designed to accommodate all skill levels, from the beginner to the professional. As you can see, Atlanta Country Club has a rich tradition and history in the world of golf, and a very exiting future as well.
