15 Mar Golf Is Glorious at Park Springs
Two 18-Hole Championship Golf Courses – Right next to Park Springs
Adjacent to the Park Springs retirement community’s 54-acre campus and nestled at the foot of Stone Mountain, Stone Mountain Golf Club offers two championship courses that provide the perfect challenge for any skill level – whether you’re a duffer or a daily player. Park Springs offers its members private access to the golf courses plus all the amenities of magnificent Stone Mountain Park.
Stone Mountain Golf Club’s two courses, Stonemont and Lakemont, wind around Stone Mountain Lake. They offer breathtaking views and wonderful, natural rock formations that make any round of golf a pure delight.
“Being so close to premier golf courses is yet another element of the resort lifestyle at Park Springs,” says Kevin Isakson, Director of Marketing and Sales at Isakson Living, the owner and operator of Park Springs. “Where else in the Atlanta area can you find this kind of proximity to golf, combined with first-class dining, superior healthcare and wellness services, and a great staff?”
Many golfers who live at Park Springs appreciate how easy it is to access the golf courses using their own golf carts. “Our members don’t need to hop in their car but can use their very own golf cart and drive over through our own private gate into Stone Mountain Park,” according to Isakson.
Stone Mountain Golf Club is fully staffed with trained PGA professionals and a head golf instructor who provide top-flight instruction, precision club fitting, and expert guidance.
