Upcom­ing Golf Exclusives

The Château

This beau­ti­ful 7,030 yard, par 71 with con­toured fair­ways, three lakes and two mean­der­ing streams, opened in July of 1989. Designed by renowned course archi­tect Denis Grif­fiths, this cham­pi­onship lay­out was instantly rec­og­nized as one of the top courses in Geor­gia. Water comes into play on ten of the 18 holes while 87 bunkers lend chal­lenge and char­ac­ter to the lush bermuda fair­ways and bent­grass greens.

Château Course Reviews

Golf Digest: This is a won­der­ful resort course with excel­lent range facil­i­ties. You’ll need to hit shots accu­rately or you’ll end up in trou­ble. The greens are large and undulating.

Zagat Sur­vey: Ranked in the Zagat Survey’s America’s Best Golf Courses with Very Good to Excel­lence scores in all cat­e­gories. A real find north of Atlanta “criss­crossed by hid­den creaks” and bump­ing along on “hills aplenty”, the name­sake course is “a solid chal­lenge for any skill level.”

The Wood­lands

Also designed by Grif­fiths and opened in 1996, many con­sider The Wood­lands to be the most pic­turesque of the three cham­pi­onship lay­outs. The rolling hills of this stun­ning 6,735 yard, par 72 presents mem­o­rable views of sparkling lakes and tree-​lined holes to give play­ers a bliss­ful feel­ing of solitude.

Wood­lands Course Reviews

Golf Digest: 4 and 1/​2 stars, The Wood­lands is top-​shelf in every way. Those in the know call it a truly out­stand­ing and chal­leng­ing course. Be pre­pared for rolling ter­rain with some blind shots.

Zagat Sur­vey: The Wood­lands Course ranked in the Zagat Survey’s America’s Best Golf Courses with Very Good to Excel­lence scores in all cat­e­gories. On Chateau Elan’s younger sib­ling, a “must-​play” that “requires a great deal of accu­racy” (“try the up-​slope side of the fair­ways for a good roll”); amid “beatific moun­tains and rolling hills” with “tremen­dous hous­ing along the course”, the “beau­tific set­ting” alone makes it “worth the trip” north­east from Atlanta.

The Leg­ends

The Leg­ends, a pri­vate mem­bers only golf club, is the mas­ter­piece of cel­e­brated golf greats Gene Sarazen, Sam Snead, and Kathy Whit­worth. Each selected six of their favorite holes from around the world, then crafted each hole onto The Leg­ends lay­out. Golf enthu­si­asts will be excited to find such rec­og­niz­able holes as the 12th and 13th at Augusta National, The Postage Stamp at Royal Troon, and the 18th at Merion. The Leg­ends has lim­ited access for resort guests and cor­po­rate groups.

9-​Hole Exec­u­tive Par 3 Course

Located just behind the Inn at Château Élan, the walk­ing only Exec­u­tive Par 3 Course is a trib­ute to golf as it was meant to be played and is a per­fect option when time does not allow for a full round. This attrac­tive lay­out fea­tures beau­ti­fully land­scaped holes, strate­gi­cally placed bunkers, and small bent grass greens. Lend­ing plenty of chal­lenge, holes vary in length from less than 100 yards to more than 160 yards mak­ing it an ideal course for golfers of all lev­els of experience.
