Established in 1989, opened for play in 1991, the 1100-acre master planned Private Country Club community located in Clarkesville, GA, is in one of the nations top-rated retirement communities. Nestled up against the Chattahoochee National Forest at the base of the Appalachian Mountains, the golf course was created amid apple orchards, annual flowering trees, shrubs, and cool running mountain streams. The creeks that wind throughout the property sustained the working cattle farm/orchard it once was and are now home to deer and other wildlife.
The eighteen-hole championship layout is a journey through picturesque mountains making it the absolute golfing experience and nature at its best. Five sets of elevated tees, bermuda fairways, and flawless bentgrass greens guarded by white sand bunkers were designed and built by famed golf course architect, Dan Maples.
With 4 tennis courts, a community swimming pool, fully stocked pro shop, and cafe; The Orchard offers the total country club experience.
