Athens' University of Georgia Golf Course Provides Affordable Fun
The University of Georgia Golf Course is the only course located in the actual city of Athens.
The 18-hole course has gathered many accolades from golf experts, especially after an extensive renovation in 2006.
Golfweek has called it one of the top 10 best public courses in Georgia, and named it one of the top 25 university courses in the nation.
The university course is situated on a beautiful terrain of rolling hills and towering shade trees, making the course aesthetically pleasing as well as challenging. Several of the holes require forceful shots with spot on precision if the player wants to make it under par 71.
The course is equipped with a full-service golf shop and affordable memberships to accommodate the primarily student population. There is also a full-size driving range for members to polish their game and a picnic area with a snack bar to relax and refuel after a long game.
