Golf at Atlanta Athletic Club
The R.T. Jones Instruction Center is staffed with PGA Golf Professionals who are enthusiastic about their chosen sport and recognize that a big part of our heritage is born from the efforts and accomplishments of extraordinary golfers. Everyone has to start somewhere and lessons given by our golf professionals are delivered in an enthusiastic manner where the goal is “developing swings that will last for a lifetime of enjoyment”. Our staff will celebrate your successes and encourage you to improve in the environment of our year-round indoor/outdoor instruction center.
Our two championship golf courses, Highlands and Riverside, offer a firm, but fair test for golfers of all ages and skill levels. Multiple sets of tee markers allow golfers to choose the length of course that want to play. Our 9-hole Par 3 Course built by our golf grounds department is a great environment for the junior golfer or for someone who may want to work on their short game. Junior golfers are nurtured and challenged to learn the game, the rules and etiquette as our staff goes about the “business of inspiring tomorrow’s champions every day”.
