BridgeMill Athletic Club – Canton, GA
Holes: 18 Par: 72 Yardage: 7,085 Architect: Larry Mize, Desmond Muirhead
In a city known for great golf courses, BridgeMill Athletic Club has a championship course considered phenomenal in its design and conditioning. Designed by Desmond Muirhead, designer of Mission Hills (home of the LPGA Nabisco Championship) and consultant to Jack Nicklaus on Muirfield Village, and Georgia’s own 1987 Masters Champion Larry Mize, BridgeMill opened in late 1998 as one of the most well-balanced tests of golf in Atlanta. The par-72 layout was masterfully carved into the rolling terrain and plays to 7,110 yards from the championship tees.
With five sets of tees and a variety of landscapes, BridgeMill does not overemphasize any one aspect of the game. Touting a true island green, BridgeMill’s 16th is one of the most recognized holes in Atlanta.
