Chattahoochee Golf Club first opened for play in 1959. The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr.
Located north of downtown Gainesville, Chattahoochee Golf Course is the oldest golf course in northeast Georgia. Chattahoochee Golf Course was built alongside Lake Lacier, with some lakes of its own that come into play on three holes. The course underwent a complete renovation in 2006, with new greens, new bunkers, added fairway drainage, cement cart paths, new modern teaching center, a fleet of electric carts, and new tee boxes with 5 sets of tees. CourseCrafters and architect Kevin Hargrave teamed up to renovate the classic Robert Trent Jones, Sr. Layout. From the black tees, the course now measures over 7,000 yards.
Even though the fairways are lined with trees, they still afford generous landing areas. The Chattahoochee Golf Club golf course is closed on Mondays.

Played this course just one day after Bear's best. They compare favorably. The greens are not as fast, but fast enough. the fairways are not as green looking as Bear's best, but well maintained and and just as wide. The sand traps were well maintained and playable. No hidden hazards like at some golf courses, i.e. streams and overgrown valleys at the crest of a hill. Very enjoyable course and the price was right. Oh yes, walkable but hilly. Need to be in shape to do 18. The course was very busy, but the starter did a great job of spacing out the groups.

This was my home course for over 20 yrs. When they decided to renovate it a few years ago, it was closed and I began to play other courses within 45 minutes drive. When it reopened, I found the course to have lost the charm of big undulating greens where pin placement could really make a difference. They removed all water from the layout which had been an intrigal of the joy of its charm. Now the greens are rather flat as a whole. The added fareway bunckers where there were none before hasn't helped the play either. It is always in great condition as it always was before and the greens are becoming less bumpy with time. Maybe it is just that they changed my "baby" and I don't enjoy it as I once did.
