The Clarkesville, Ga., property began permitting public access to the golf course and facilities in 2008 in response to the slow economy, but returned to private status this year on July 1, with General Manager Randy Brooks noting that “today is a new day.”
On July 1, The Orchard Golf & Country Club in Clarkesville, Ga., once again became a private golf and country club. The property permitted public access to the golf course and facilities beginning in 2008 in response to the economic downturn, the Marietta (Ga.) Daily Journal reported.
“The newly renovated clubhouse and golf course are attracting new members, who along with existing members, want the personalized treatment that only a private club can provide,” said General Manager Randy Brooks.
The club is accepting members, with membership categories ranging from local (within 50 miles) to national (beyond 50 miles). The club also remains available for corporate outings and events, the Daily Journal reported.
Located next tot hte Chattahoochee National Forest at the base of the Appalachian Mountains, the club’s 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Dan Maples and features bermuda fairways and bentgrass greens, the Daily Journal reported.
