The Currahee Club: A Priceless & Pastoral Piece of Paradise

There aren’t enough superlatives in the English language to accurately portray what it’s like to visit the Currahee Club (One Currahee Club Way, Toccoa, Georgia; 706-827-1000;, but stunning may be the best way to describe the newest member of the Georgia Golf Trail.  And, in the Cherokee language, Currahee means “stand alone,” an appropriate way to describe the geographic locale of this eastern Georgia destination.

While the Currahee Club is private, outside play is allowed, provided you stay on-site or be accompanied by a member.  And, if you like the Currahee Club that much, as many people do, you can join the club and make it your forever home!  Here’s a link that will give you a sneak peek at real estate options at the Currahee Club:  View Real Estate – Currahee Club

Simply put, the Currahee Club’s “stand alone” location, nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, is spectacular.  Its relaxed and peaceful atmosphere  includes access to Lake Hartwell.  The five-acre Currahee Club Sports Complex includes a kid’s playground, two lighted tennis courts, half-court basketball, bocce ball, sand volleyball, a zero-entry, saltwater pool, and a 24-hour state-of-the art Wellness Center.  In fact, the Wellness Center is a brilliant perspiration destination which features treadmills, elliptical machines, fitness classes and personalized fitness coaching with the trainer-in-residence.  Accommodations include:  The Lodges at Currahee Club, The Cottages at Currahee Club, and The Clubhouse Suites; all luxurious and exquisite.  The afore-mentioned Lake Hartwell is a perfect playground for water enthusiasts.  The 56,000-acre body of water is conveniently located as it’s adjacent to the Currahee Club.  Lake Hartwell appeals to anyone who enjoys activities on the water.

The Currahee Club experience begins when you walk into the majestic 48,000-square-foot clubhouse. Here, enjoy first-class dining and breathtaking views of Lake Hartwell from the veranda.  Then there’s the featured attraction of this Georgia getaway:  the Jim Fazio-designed par-72, 18-hole golf course which is worthy of its championship label.  The course features multiple sets of tees for the enjoyment of any skill level.  The course maintains premiere playing conditions year-round, highlighted by outstanding bent grass greens.

Currahee Club also features its own golf academy. The Gotham Golf Train Academy houses high-speed video, Trackman launch monitor, and multiple club-fitting systems from industry leaders.

“When a student understands their natural movement patterns, they can learn, own and repeat an athletically efficient golf swing,” said Jim Gotham the Gotham Golf Train Academy.  “Golf is ultimately a ‘feel’ game. However, we have technology and data collection tools that help us guide a player through a full range of discoveries from short game to full swing.”

Currahee Club offers a variety of dining options from casual to elegant.  Every dining venue offers a first-class experience and unmatched scenery.
Over the years, many accolades have been bestowed upon Currahee Club.  Three of them include: Top 10 Golf Courses To Play Before You Die (2013) by Golf Digest; #1 Golf Club in Georgia (2015) by the National Golf Course Owners Association; and Top 100 Residential Golf Courses in America (on five occasions, most recently in 2021) by Golfweek.
