The best public golf courses and golf resorts in Georgia

Best Public Golf Courses in Georgia

Georgia's terrain spans the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachian Ridge on the north through the rolling Georgia Piedmont in the middle to the Atlantic Coastal Plain and the Okefenokee Swamp and along the Suwannee River to the south and east. Since half of Georgia's 9.5 million residents live in the Atlanta area, it goes to reason that most of the Georgia's top ranked, public golf courses would be located in the metropolitan area.

The Frog Golf Club and Bear's Best are two of Atlanta's best public golf courses you can play, and aside from several notable exceptions, the balance of Georgia's top public golf courses are concentrated in resort areas like the Sea Island Golf Club on Sea Island, the golf courses around Lake Oconee, the Club at Savannah Harbor, and Barnsley Gardens in the North Georgia mountains which are found in this guide to the best public golf courses and resorts in Georgia.
