Of golf Colman McCarthy said, ""Indeed, the highest pleasure of golf may be that on the fairways and far from all the pressures of commerce and rationality, we can feel immortal for a few hours." And there could be few better places to experience such serenity than here in the North Georgia Mountains, where courses offer a unique opportunity to enjoy your game while surrounded by picturesque mountain scenery.
Perhaps the most famed golf course near Blue Ridge, Georgia is Brasstown Valley Resort in Young Harris, just a 40 minute drive away. A course that actually meanders through wildlife preserves, Golf Digest has named Brasstown one of Georgia's top courses. Another great course near Blue Ridge is Butternut Creek Golf Course in Blairsville. This course, only 15 minutes away, offers 6536 yards of fairways and a 18 hole, par 73 course. Bur truly the greatest challenge of either of these courses may be to keep your eye on the ball instead of on the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains.
We also have two smaller courses near the Blue Ridge area: Whitepath Golf Club in Ellijay,GA and Copper Basin Golf Club in Ducktown,TN. Though these courses may not offer the challenge of Brasstown, they'll still satisfy your need to be out there on the green, working on your game. Breathing crisp mountain air, you'll find you mind refreshed and ready to shoot your best game ever, embodying the fairway immortal McCarthy knows is within every golfer.
