McLemore Names One Of "America's 100 Greatest Public Courses"

Thursday, September 16, 2021

McLemore, 785 Canyon Ridge Road in Rising Fawn, was named by Golf Digest as one of "America’s 100 Greatest of Public Courses."   

According to the listing, the course’s "soaring views" opened up, thanks to the redesigns by Rees Jones and Bill Bergin.  Golf Digest also named McLemore’s 18th hole as the "best finishing hole since 2000" late last year, noting that the par 4 hole "rides the clifftop and seems to levitate above McLemore Cove."  

McLemore is one of three ranked courses in Georgia and the only course ranked north of Atlanta.  The course is also the only one on the list from the tri-state area. 

McLemore President Duane Horton noted, “This is a tremendous recognition of our efforts and investment as well as a testament to the entire team - especially the grounds crew and golf staff.  This news confirms the vision we have and encourages us to continue to make improvements to the course, facilities and service to move even further up the list.”

The Cloudland Lodge at McLemore is now under construction to provide 245 rooms, making McLemore a true destination in the southeast.

Mr.

Horton noted that the growing community at McLemore is nothing short of extraordinary.  “This team and community have made tremendous progress but our vision for McLemore is just starting.  We will continue to grow McLemore into a national destination golf and outdoor resort community embracing the local culture, history and geography to serve members and guests for generations to come,” he said.
