Spotlight: Savor the lake life at Cobblestone Golf Course near Atlanta
There are scores of golf courses to choose from in and around the Atlanta metro area, but none can compare to the sublime setting at Cobblestone Golf Course.
Love life at the lake? Zip up I-75 about 30 minutes north of Atlanta and you’ll arrive at one of the most scenic public courses in Georgia. Cobblestone Golf Course features 18 holes, 8 of which border and overlook scenic and quiet Lake Acworth.
Cobblestone Golf Course is owned by Cobb County and operated by Bobby Jones Links. It holds a reputation as one of Georgia’s best municipal golf experiences since it opened in 1993 and was later fully renovated in 2013. Designed by Ken Dye, the course has four sets of tees from 5,400 yards up front to a 6,759-yard championship box and is a past venue for PGA Tour qualifying.
You don’t have to be a pro golfer to compete at Cobblestone Golf Course, however. The Men’s Golf Association is 120 members strong and conducts monthly tournaments and is always welcoming new golfers.
The 4th hole at Cobblestone is an early standout: A 313-yard dogleg right that hugs the lake from tee to green. The 16th, meanwhile, is one of three par 3s that border the lake.
“Oh my.. the course today was the best I’ve ever seen it,” wrote Golf Advisor reviewer ‘KyleSalone’ in their September, 2020 review. “Green and lush, very well manicured and the greens? Incredible.”
Cobblestone also features a full practice facility and teaching academy, as well as plenty of room for outings and events. You don’t have to travel far at all from Atlanta to find a peaceful and affordable golf escape.
