Cobblestone Golf Course, a long-time favorite course of Metro-Atlanta golfers, is excited to announce an array of renovations to the practice facilities, including expanding and improving the putting green as well as providing a larger, more useful chipping green to golfers.
To assist in renovations, Cobblestone Golf Course has hired contractor Kevin Selsor of Traditions Turf to oversee construction. Traditions Turf Management will be enlarging the chipping green to over double its original size, from 1,135 square feet to over 2,800 square feet. The bunker will remain but will be smaller in size to accommodate the larger chipping green. The size of the putting green will also increase, expanding from 3,925 square feet to 7,325 square feet. In addition to the expansion, the sloping of the putting green will be smoothed out to provide more puttable space overall.
“We are excited to embark on these new enhancements to the course,” said Terry Harnage, General Manager of Cobblestone Golf Course. “Kevin Selsor has always been a big fan of Cobblestone Golf Course, and we are lucky to have Traditions Turf working with us on this project.”
Work on the course began in mid-April and will conclude by the first week of June when the grow-in process is complete. Upon completion, the course will provide a larger, flatter practice putting surface that will be easier to maintain and will make for a better practice experience for players, as well as a higher-quality, more useful chipping green with more space to practice a myriad of shots. There will also be two areas for golfers to practice putting, which will be much more functional for camps, lessons, and golfers who prefer to remain at the practice facility.
Cobblestone Golf Course opened in 1993 and underwent a full renovation in 2010. Offering Champion Bermuda greens, white-sand bunkers, and a lakefront Ken Dye design, Cobblestone Golf Course has racked up awards and accolades over the years. These awards include a Four Star rating by Golf Digest, a spot on the (2011, 2012, 2013) “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” by Golf Magazine, and “2011 Best Municipal Courses in The US” by Golfweek.
Cobblestone Golf Course is locally managed in partnership with Bobby Jones Links and is located in Acworth, GA. For additional information on tee times, lessons and for answers on any general inquiries, please visit https://www.cobblestonegolf.com/.
