Since I will be unable to make the July Atlanta GCA event, I knew I had to play Rivermont at some point. Mac and I were able to work it out. Wade was able to join, and I was able to talk with Chris as well. This was the thread that brought Rivermont to my attention.It is a great golf course. Just some great looks to the holes. Very creative greens. Shelves, tiers, punchbowls, Redan, half punchbowls, cross slopes, mounds, subtle mounds, and the (hopefully) soon to be Wade's front porch on #9. I want to go back. I highly recommend it. Thanks guys.
I was lucky enough to play Rivermont this am. This place is the golf nerd's star trek! It is possible that everyone doesn't understand, but the true believers love it. There are great internal green contours, the green speeds were perfect , the bunkers are awesome. If you are fortunate, go play this course, it is great fun.
Interesting course to check out in Atlana suburbs, but while really attractive ..................... the baskets are sacrilegious. Merion is Holy ground.Is it walkable and is there a walking culture? I see pictures of carts on their website.How are the membership rolls doing? There are many private clubs in that area that must be dying for membership.WmFlynnfan
Mac,What about a pre or post Dixie Cup day at Rivermont? I'll bet it would be popular!Mike
Just a shout out to Chris and his work at running the club.Rivermont was voted the 2013 "Club of the Year" by the Georgia Golf Course Owners Association.Congrats, Chris!!!
