Golf Course Overview
Opened in 2005 by famed golf course architect Greg Norman, The River Club merges his appreciation of the native landscape with his strategic design skills to create what many are calling the very definition of a true world-class golf course.
Measuring 7,197 yards from the championship tees, the 18 Hole Championship layout plays to Par 72. The River Club's signature hole is the 163 Yard Hole #17, which plays from an elevated tee (just behind the clubhouse) to a beautiful island green.
One Of The Best North Georgia Courses!
One of the best courses period! The River Club has garnered many accolades in its short history and has been the host site to 3 US Open qualifying competitions. As you play the golf course, you will experience two completely different nines.
The front nine was masterfully designed with the natural terrain. The player will experience a sense of peacefulness with no parallel fairways. Each hole winds through century old hardwoods with modest elevation changes. The back nine offers an enchanting park like setting in the Chattahoochee River plain with vibrant wetlands.
The River Club is a Certified Audubon Sanctuary, assuring that this pristine natural condition will remain forever. With 5 sets of tees plus a family tee, The River Club will offer a wonderful playing experience for all skill levels!
