The FROG at The GEORGIAN Celebrates 20 Years

The Frog Golf Club at The Georgian in Villa Rica has reached an exciting milestone as it celebrates the 20th anniversary this November. In honor of this momentous occasion, The Frog is hosting a weekend-long celebration November 16-18.

Open since 1998, The Frog Golf Club at The Georgian features an 18-hole championship golf course that has been recognized as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and rated as one of the top golf courses in Georgia by Golf Digest. Designed by legendary golf course architect Tom Fazio, this award-winning course stretches more than 7,000 yards through indigenous hardwoods, towering southern pines, and rolling hills of the North Georgia terrain. Private homes are tucked away from the parkland style layout, allowing for a pure golf experience. In addition to golf, the Frog provides a well appointed clubhouse, fully stocked golf shop and a full service bar and restaurant. The Frog Golf Club has recently joined the Georgia Golf Trail, a collaboration of the Peach State’s finest golf resorts and courses promoting its beauty and southern charm where Bobby Jones honed his game and lived his life. The club is managed by Honours Golf, a division of Troon Golf.

The 20th anniversary weekend will kick-off with a charity golf tournament at The Frog at Noon on Friday 11/16. This 4-person scramble is $50 per person or $200 per foursome team, which includes 18 holes of golf with cart, food and beverages and the chance to win numerous prizes. A portion of the proceeds will go to Paulding County Cops for Kids program which targets children 8-13 years of age in an effort to promote positive interaction with young people in the county and Sheriff Gary Gulledge’s Deputies.

On Saturday, November 17th, The Frog Golf Club will host a complimentary Family Fun Day for the public and residents from 9am to 3pm. There will be complimentary golf clinics, a fun SNAG GOLF for kids, and the opportunity to test new golf equipment from leading golf club manufacturers. There will also be a Bounce House, BBQ buffet, music and more.
The Frog will also be allowing golfers to play the magnificent golf course for only $20 plus tax after 11am on Saturday. Later in the evening, a celebratory cocktail reception, which will include wine and bourbon tastings, hors d’oeuvres and live music, will be held at the clubhouse for $19.98 plus tax per person.

The activities will conclude with a special Anniversary Brunch on Sunday, the 18th, from 10am to 2pm and will include many breakfast favorites and Thanksgiving menu items at an Anniversary Special Price of $19.98 for adults and $9.95 for children.

A note from Architect Tom Fazio, ASGCA.

“Designing The Frog Golf Course in the late 1990’s was a great experience for myself and Fazio Design,” said Tom. “This Paulding County site, at the time was very rural with very little development in the area. We had a large amount of land to work with, select options for the clubhouse location and individual golf holes. We walked the property numerous times and staked-out the holes to maximize the potential for each setting. The beautiful, rolling Georgia terrain allowed for many choices to adjust the routing plan to ensure each golf hole would fit naturally into the landscape. The result was a well built, traditional style course which feels like a private club. Each hole is unique. We are very proud of the task we completed to get the The Frog Golf Club off to a great start in 1998. Twenty years later, the Club is celebrating its unique past and a great future for quality golf in the Atlanta metro area. We join the celebration and wish everyone many more years of future
enjoyment at The Frog!”
