Peachtree Golf Club

Brookhaven, GA, USA

Having lived just 5 minutes up the street from Peachtree Golf Club for many years, I had always hoped to get the opportunity to play there. An invitation was extended in the summer of 2015 through a good friend. This course impresses in every way, magnificent design and manicured to perfection. Bobby Jones and his brother, Robert ‘Trent’ Jones, worked on this one together, although Robert was the primary designer. Augusta National has long been considered the Joneses drawers golf course while the opposite is said of Peachtree which favors the fader from the tee. The course draws comparisons to Augusta National thanks not only to the creators but the flora which decorates the course. Azaleas, dogwoods, and tall Georgia pines line the fairways and garden beds throughout the property. My memories are fond, and the score was good that day, a bogey free (-4) 68, playing alongside 2006 US Mid-Amateur Champion, Dave Womack. I would treasure an opportunity to tackle this incredible Jones course again some day!
