In fact, The Country Club has brought more national Country Stars to Augusta than any other club in recent memory. With its friendly and professional staff, state-of-the-art sound and light system and lots of space to party, The Country Club rises above and beyond the expectations of "just another nightclub." The Country Club's dedicated fans voted it "Metro's Best Nightclub!" three years in a row and named it "Best Live Music Venue." Those very fans are the reason The Country Club has become the No. 1 place to party in the CSRA.
To help guests enjoy The Country Club lifestyle, free line dancing lessons are taught most Friday and Saturday's from 7-9 p.m. on the CSRA's biggest and best dance floor. The Country Club is open Friday and Saturday from 7 p.m. until 2 a.m. and has special events at other times of the week. For more information, visit their website: AugustaJam.com
