Several greater Atlanta-area clubs teamed together recently to play their First Tee Marathon at The Country Club of the South in Johns Creek, Georgia. Participating clubs included Country Club of Gwinnett, Bear's Best, Woodside Plantation Country Club and Country Club of the South.
The groups teed off at 7 a.m. and, 10 hours later, completed 100 holes of golf and raised almost $20,000 for The First Tee! What a great way for a team to come together for a good cause.
The bar for next year has now been set and, with more than 30 clubs now in the Atlanta market, the results should go far beyond and serve as an event that unites even more of the area Golf Professionals.
Good job to all involved!
The Gwinnett Daily Post this week published a nice story on the upcoming 10th Anniversary of Bear's Best Atlanta, a highly rated and unique course with replicas of some of the best holes from Nicklaus courses around the world.
"I'm proud of where we are, because not just golf, it's tough out there, and I think we've weathered the storm. We're in great shape," Bear's Best General Manager Craig Riddle said in the article. "I feel fortunate we've not had to cut back on the experience, the overall experience, course conditions, overall quality of our product has not suffered."
ClubCorp also operates a highly rated Bear's Best course in Las Vegas, Nevada.
