Local 18 hole golf courses Atlanta pro shops near you

We are about to share a full break down of the Atlanta golf scene. Courses, stores, driving ranges, Topgolf, and miniature golf in your area will all be discussed in full detail as this post goes along.

With that said we can’t come up with a better way to get this going than by listing the best public and private golf courses near you. They are the star of the show and deserve the top billing.


After they have been covered we will move on to the best local golf stores to buy new clubs, bags, balls, tees, apparel, and whatever other gear you might need. Then we will get into Atlanta golf driving ranges and putting greens for when you want to get some practice in.

Our final two things to mention will be about Topgolf and miniature golf courses in the area. We suggest that you stick around for the map towards the end so that you can figure out where all these courses and other spots are located.

This is a region we have written quite a few other posts on in the past if you are interested.
