We are pleased to announce that the Country Club of Columbus has agreed to host the following statewide championships over the coming years:

“As one of the original GSGA Member Clubs, it is truly an honor to continue our strong relationship with the Country Club of Columbus. The multiple championships scheduled over the remainder of this decade touches a variety of our competitive membership demographics. The historic Donald Ross course presents so many unique challenges in course set-up that will surely test all elements of a player's game. Returning to the club after a brief hiatus with the 2020 Georgia Four-Ball Championship and 2021 Georgia Mid-Amateur Championship was just the beginning in a long line of memorable competitions that showcase the famed golf course, the incredibly welcoming staff, supportive membership and great city of Columbus.”

Host Club Information
The Country Club of Columbus was officially chartered in 1909. In 1922, the club was looking for its first full-time golf professional, and on the recommendation from the great Bobby Jones, Fred Haskins was hired. With the promise of hosting the Georgia Amateur Championship, Haskins realized a redesign of the then 13-hole golf course was necessary. Donald Ross designed the piece of property which would welcome the state's best amateurs at the 1925 Georgia Amateur Championship.
Since 1925 the club has hosted three additional Georgia Amateur Championships (1947, 1960, 2009). Other GSGA-sanctioned competitions the Country Club of Columbus has hosted include: Georgia Mid-Amateur Championship (1998, 2007, 2021); Georgia Junior Championship (1982, 1990); Georgia Girls' Championship (1982, 1990); Georgia Four-Ball Championship (1997, 2020); Georgia Senior Four-Ball Championship (1995, 2004, 2012, 2013).
