Local Charm

The Georgia Club sits in an ideal location in the middle of so many different communities. Although living in the Georgia Club means you’ll enjoy an inclusive community on day one and plenty amenities to walk to, its proximity to Athens and Atlanta makes it easy to find everything you’re looking for with just a short drive.

If you’d like to plan a visit to the club, even one that coordinates with a local event you don’t want to miss, please reach out to us today! We would love to show you around.
