With Jim Fazio's design expertise, we are proud to have created a world-class golf course that complements the beauty of the surrounding area, continually tests the talent of our members and their guests, and has now been recognized as one of the best golf courses in the entire country

Currahee Club's spectacular 18-hole, 7,513-yard golf course, set into the landscape of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains and Lake Hartwell, was declared as one of the country's top 50 new golf courses by Golfweek Magazine in 2006. Currahee Club garnered 12th place out of 50 and was the highest ranked Georgia golf course on the list.

The esteemed ranking is determined by more than 400 golf enthusiasts on 10 separate criteria, including conditioning, feature shaping and landscaping. In addition, each voter completes a series of seminars on the elements that make a course outstanding before scoring the golf courses.    

Currahee Club's golf course has also been frequently highlighted by other golf publications for its overall course layout, remarkable elevation changes and breathtaking panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Lake Hartwell.

"This is Currahee Club's first ranking in Golfweek, and to be ranked higher than spectacular new golf courses in Naples, Palm Springs, Myrtle Beach and La Quinta is an incredible honor," said Chris Whitley, partner with Currahee Club. "With Jim Fazio's design expertise, we are proud to have created a world-class golf course that complements the beauty of the surrounding area, continually tests the talent of our members and their guests, and has now been recognized as one of the best golf courses in the entire country," he added.
