The Course at McLemore tied with Reynolds Lake Oconee as the fourth best course to play in the state of Georgia in a list provided by Golf Week magazine. The list provided the top 10 courses to play in each state. The listing also makes McLemore the highest rated course for the state north of Atlanta.
With McLemore entering its second full year of operations and first season with the new cliff-edge clubhouse, accolades continue to underscore that the course truly ranks “above the clouds.” The private, 18-hole Highlands Course is available to members and guests, and recently opened the ‘Stay and Play’ program. The program allows guests to experience McLemore’s course, on-site lodging and dining at The Creag, with Appalachian inspired dining prepared by Chef Anthony Hooper.
McLemore President Duane Horton said, “We are thrilled with the ranking from Golf Week. It’s humbling to see the reaction from so many in the golf world who are coming to McLemore to experience and appreciate the design and expertise of Bill Bergin and Rees Jones. Their vision and the team executing it has truly placed McLemore on the map and for that we are extremely grateful.”
Mr. Horton noted that the McLemore community is also growing and experiencing record interest with four new home starts within the next 30 to 60 days, two new golf cottages that opened in April and, two additional new golf cottages opening in this month. McLemore is also gaining online attention with a weekly growth rate of 6 percent reflected in over 5,200 Facebook likes.
“We are experiencing success from our golf course to our dining offerings to the community we are building with so many,” said Mr. Horton. “We will continue to do all we can to strive to exceed expectations and look forward to introducing even more golfers to a place that is truly extraordinary.”
