Next Golf Trip

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I recently had to cancel a golf trip to Sand Valley and Erin Hills. I live in Atlanta and would like to plan a trip within driving distance of me so within ~8 hours of driving from Atlanta. Any recommendations of trips to do? I've played Pinehurst but not since they've redone No. 4 or added the cradle.

If you want a short drive go to the golf capital of Tennessee. Crossville is about 3 to 3-1/2 hrs from you. Stonehedge, Craig, Brae, Dorchester and  Bear Trace are all good courses. There are at least six others in that area as well  but I haven't played the others.

I'm sure you have been to Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach being from Atlanta.

Look up Sweetens Cove Golf club right outside Chattanooga, TN. 9 hole course with 2 pin locations on the green to play like 18 holes. All day packages. They limit the number of people playing so it’ll never be overcrowded. 
 

In Alabama, you got all the RTJ courses. If interested I’d look into playing Muscle Shoals, Capitol Hill, Ross Bridge, or Lakewood. Alabama also has an awesome public course I’d play everyday if I could at Farmlinks. 
 

A little further west, you have a couple golf courses paired together in MIssissippi that are fun to play. Old Waverly Golf Club and Mossy Oak Golf Club.

Definitely worth a trip to Sweetens. Great place. The course at Sewanee is also there and I've heard is worth a trip if you're in the area.

Plain and simple...Kiawah, if you don't want to do Pinehurst again.  The Cradle is ok and number 4 is no joke but it's also $400 to play, for that just play #2.

Strong second on this one. Though maybe only use the tips for your photographs...

I did a guys' trip about 4 years ago to Birmingham and we did Ross Bridge, Oxmoor Valley, and Silver Lakes. In a previous life, I also played down at Capitol Hill and only really remember being completely beaten up by it. (I'm pretty sure there was one hole that was 600 yds tipped out and it played dead into the wind. I might have hit Dr, 3w, 3w and been short.)

And SE TN/SW NC have some really incredible courses, scenery, beer, and lodging options while staying pretty close to home for you so you're not spending all your time in the car. (FWIW, Bryson City is one of my favorites, but the best food in my life was in Clay County, NC.)

Man that’s funny because I played all the courses you mentioned and my best round came at capital hill. Pulling in off the free way I was less than impressed but once out on the course it was pretty amazing.
