Many golf-course communities claim to be “the best” but how many have the awards and accolades to actually back it up?
The Georgia Club is an award-winning community with something for everyone. The community—located in Statham, Georgia, right outside of Athens, GA (home of UGA – Go Dawgs!) and just east of Atlanta—is popular with retirees and young families from across the country.
But don’t take our word for it. Read on to see what other trusted publications are saying about The Georgia Club “The Best Place to Live in America”!

What They’re Saying:“Idyllic scenery and down-home charm are abundant in this country-club community.

Folks grow vegetables and plants in the neighborhood garden, enjoy zero-impact workouts in the 25-meter pool and let pets run free in the dog park. Sauna and steam room facilities rejuvenate aching bodies, while continuing education courses at the University of Georgia in nearby Athens ensure minds stay stimulated.”
