We agree there is no shortage of golf courses in Cobb County for you to choose from when looking to hold a golf outing. However, we assure you that there are none that will do a better job of providing your group with a top notch golf experience coupled with a ‘can-do’ attitude of service that starts in the parking lot and continues through your time at the “19th Hole.” This is why Dogwood Golf Club is a very popular choice for over forty charity tournaments and corporate outings each year.
Whether it is a full field charity event or just a bunch of folks from the office getting together to bond on the golf course, Dogwood Golf Club is the ideal choice. For over ten years many charities, associations, and corporations have allowed Dogwood to host their events year after year.
When deciding what facility might be right for your group you’ll have many factors in consideration, but allow us to sum up those which, through our experience, are the key factors used by others and why they have chosen Dogwood Golf Club.
Top 10 Reasons Dogwood is #1 for Golf Outings
#1 Excellent Layout for Golfers of All Abilities to Enjoy
Dogwood’s widely acclaimed layout and redesigned greens will challenge and delight both avid and occasional golfers. Our par 72, 6500 yd. course is designed such that it is an "equalizing" course, meaning bad shots are not severely penalized, there are ample opportunities for recovery shots, but subtle greens can make scoring a challenge.
Our tree-lined course has no homes or buildings to distract from the serenity of the setting, and it is a true test of the game and a golfer’s abilities. Reminiscent of the wonderful older golf course style, Dogwood rewards the shot-maker and the golfer who has the maturity to manage their game. It is not tricky, nor does it incorporate gimmicks; but presents an honest use of the terrain and water hazards. This creates a challenge and proves that length alone is not enough to characterize a golf course.
#2 Excellent Playing Conditions
The most common compliment we have received over the years has been with regard to the quality of our fairways and the excellent condition in which we maintain our course. With last year’s total renovation of our greens by acclaimed golf architect Bill Bergin; our greens are gaining wide notoriety as the best in all of Cobb County. We work very hard to maintain our course in tournament level conditions all season long!
#3 The Perfect Location
Conveniently located just off Barrett Parkway Dogwood is half way between Cumberland and Town Center with easy access from Marietta, Kennesaw, Smyrna, Vinings, Austell, and Powder Springs. We believe that “long drives are FOR the golf course not TO the golf course.”
#4 Clubhouse, Grille, Dogwood Room, & Veranda are At Your Disposal
Our clubhouse, grille room, and outdoor veranda can accommodate groups of many sizes. We can arrange food and beverage service on our beautiful covered veranda overlooking the 9th and 18th greens.
#5 Fully Stocked Pro Shop
Our Pro Shop has a selection of men’s and women’s apparel, equipment, accessories, and tournament gifts. Special pricing is available on a wide selection of items (with logos) from balls to towels to commemorative apparel.
