The great Socrates once said that the secret to change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new. It appears that this philosophy has found its way to Browns Mill Golf Course in Atlanta, Georgia. The George Cobb designed-course has been named the Second Most Improved U.S. Course in 2014 by Golf Advisor.
The platform, which is a leading source of golf course ratings and reviews by golfers, took a look at golfers’ overall sentiments regarding golf courses in the U.S. from 2013-14 and searched out the most improved courses. In order for properties to be eligible for the top 25 “Most Improved” honors, at least 20 reviews and a rating of a 3.5 or higher was required. Browns Mill fit this criteria and saw a year-over-year (YOY) boost of 61%.
One of the biggest factors responsible for this upswing that has the Browns Mill community excited is the improvements made made to the course. “To sum up what our guests have said in the past year: the warm improvement to the clubhouse, the additions of more dependable carts, and the good quality of the fairways always roll true,” said general manager, Tyrone Swain.
Browns Mill Golf Course is located very close to downtown Atlanta and the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Some of its most beautiful features include four lakes that come into play on seven different holes, and two 400-yard par 4’s that will be sure to test the driving accuracy of your game. Additionally, Browns Mill Golf Course is friendly for new golfers, yet still presents quite a challenge for those with lower handicaps. And if you’re a golfer that prefers Bermuda fairways over Bent Grass, this course is sure to please. The fairways are complemented by Dwarf Bermuda greens with an open design that makes for a quality getaway for busy area golfers, as well as visitors to the city.
