Client Course Description
The Atlanta Athletic Club, the home club of legendary golfer Robert T. Jones, Jr., is a private athletic, golf and country club known nationally and internationally for the excellence of the facilities and services offered to our members and their families. Membership is by invitation only and guests are allowed only when accompanied by members.
Rees Jones redesigned the Highlands course in 2006. AAC Golf Course and Grounds Director and Project Manger Ken Mangum worked with Rees Jones, his key staff members Bryce Swanson and Clyde Hall and Kerry Haigh of the PGA, to produce a true championship venue. The course is strategically bunkered with narrow fairways that are ready for the 2011 PGA Championship.
In the Spring of 2016, work has started on the club’s famed Highlands Course which includes removal or rebuilding of a select group of bunkers, replacement of all bunker sand, rebuilding of the number 14 green surface to increase the number of hole locations, as well as the addition of new forward tees on twelve holes to improve course playability.
