Default Talking Rock Georgia - proposed course

I haven't seen any chatter about this online - I only know about it because my dad read about it in the newspaper, but there's a proposed new course at the Talking Rock Nature preserve in North Georgia. I know how often these things fall through, but they've got Russell Schwarz scouting the land so it appears they are serious.

Local Newspaper Article

Looking at the Land Trust's Facebook page, they recently mentioned it being a 27-hole course, so perhaps that is what they've settled on. I have to think with 200+ acres they would be able to create a great course, and this is close enough to Atlanta to be worth a drive.

It's always exciting to get a new course here in Ga! I haven't heard of anything about this one so that's even more exciting. I'm interested in what direction they choose to go.

That is a great area to hike and visit, and Meeks' Park near there isn't too shabby of a course either. Could create a nice little jumble of courses between that, N GA Canopy and Toccoa. The land is perfect for it and close enough to Chattanooga, ATL and Asheville/Greenvile to pull in players for big events.

That's good news for North Georgia, if it gets done. For those heading up to it from Atlanta, there is a great barbecue place on the way, in Ball Ground, called Two Brothers Barbecue. Best pulled pork I've tasted.

This is great news! My aunt lives in Ellijay and I go out there a couple times per year. I will be excited to play this course once it gets in the ground!

that's cool. I'm moving to GA in a month or two. I saw that they are building courses in Douglasville and Carrollton also. More to play!

Giving this one a bump because it looks like the course has been laid out and construction will soon begin. They've only got one picture but hole 17 looks promising at least. Sounds like they need some goats though.

If Russell designs it I'm sorry. Apparently he ruined enough courses in NC so he's gone south.

Not since Tecumseh Sherman has a man left such a trail of destruction through the South.
