Johns Creek, Georgia
The Country Club of the South
Opened in 1987, The Country Club of the South is an Atlanta-area golf course that is graced with unsurpassed natural beauty. Of all the Jack Nicklaus golf courses in Georgia, this Atlanta golf course presents one of the most challenging layouts.
Lush pines and hardwoods, rolling hills, lakes, streams and granite outcroppings were preserved to provide spectacular natural hazards and scenery. Voted one of the "Top 20 Best Courses in Georgia" by Golf Digest, our 7,000-yard, world-class championship Atlanta golf course hosted the Champions Tour Nationwide Championship from 1991 to 1994. All these features and more combine to make The Country Club of the South the best of all Atlanta golf clubs.

Country Club of the South, Hole #9
Par 4 - 455yd
This 455 yard hole was played as the 18th hole when the Nationwide Championship was played here.
Large bunkers border the right side of the fairway, which is sloped to the right.
The green is guarded by a steep bank with a pond on the right in front of the green.
Country Club of the South, Hole #2
Par 4 – 370yd
This 370 yard hole is the number one handicap hole. A creek crosses in front of the tee box and follows the right side of the fairway before crosses in front of the green and wrapping around to the back. There is a large tree protecting the right side of the green , which makes the fairway play much smaller than it appears.
