Best Golf Community of the Year - Currahee Club
Instead of taking a golf expert’s approach (which we’re not), we believe a key ingredient in a ‘best golf course’ includes its unique features that leave a long lasting impression upon its players. Currahee Club’s golf course in northern Georgia is intriguing with dramatic elevation changes and distracting long range views.
Hole #1 begins with jaw dropping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Lake Hartwell. Hole #17 is the most talked about hole over an intimidating deep rock quarry. Holes #14 & 15 take you along a ridgeline with stunning 360 degree views. The golf paths are smooth and a pleasure to ride. This meticulously maintained private golf course was built in 2003. Designed by Jim Fazio, the par 72 course is 7,513 yards in length with bent grass greens.
We’re not the only ones who noticed the grandeur of Currahee Club’s golf course. Over the past 18 months, golf membership grew 650% to 180 club members. In 2013, Currahee Club’s golf course moved up the ranks 20 places and is now named the #42 Golf Course in America by Golfweek Magazine. Rolex named the Currahee Club golf course a Top 1000 Course in the World (only 333 courses out of the 17,000+ in America have this accolade).
And to top it all off, the community’s 48,000 square foot mountain top clubhouse is one of the finest we’ve seen of the 241 master-planned communities in the Southeast. Currahee Club’s new ownership and financial muscle by Arandale Holdings has catapulted this Georgia mountain golf community into a debt free trendsetter!
Over 6,000 people had the pleasure of touring the 2013 Southern Living Custom Builder Showcase Home at Currahee Club positioned on the edge of the 17th hole. Homes range from the $400k’s to over $1 million and lots can be found in the mid $100k’s.
We congratulate Currahee Club on its superb achievements in the golf world and as Real Estate Scorecard's 2014 Bliss Award winner for Best Golf Community of the Year!
