Keep Calm and Golf! Spotlight on one of the best socially distanced activities and top courses in Gwinnett

Playing golf just might be one of the best socially distanced activities around and with that in mind, we are highlighting some of top courses in Gwinnett. We also highlighted some socially distanced (SD for short!) bonuses for each course (because us DiGgers always look for the good and fun in everything!).  

Bear’s Best Atlanta

Providing an experience of a luxurious private club at a public facility for all golfers, Bear’s Best Atlanta is one of the best daily fee courses in Georgia. Golfers will find a unique, fun and memorable golf experience at Bear’s Best with each hole compiled from the greatest of Jack Nicklaus golf course designs.  

SD Bonus: Bear’s Best is currently hosting a variety of virtual events including Virtual Vineyard Wine Tastings, Sports and Corks online events, yoga, cocktail how-to videos, and other virtual celebrations. Follow their Facebook page at to join in!

Chateau Élan Golf Club

Few golf resorts possess the beauty and variety offered by Château Élan’s 45 holes of championship golf. From the rolling Georgia hills of the Woodlands, to the serene valley lakes on the Château, each course is unique in character and design.  Combined with unparalleled customer service, the environment at Château Élan will lend for a truly memorable golf experience.

SD Bonus: Pair your golf outing with a Private Grandeur Tour and Tasting, Versailles Afternoon Tea or a spa treatment!

Legacy Golf Course at Lanier Islands

Lanier Island’s golf course is a brilliant throwback to classically designed courses not dependent on length to challenge golfers. It is everything great courses are known for: beautiful to the eyes, challenging to the skills and memorable to the spirit…and when you get done, you will be yearning to return! Rolling fairways, undulating greens and soft white sand-all without a house in sight to spoil the beauty of Lake Lanier, Legacy on Lanier has it all! 

SD Bonus: Make it a getaway with the Islands Golf Getaway package that includes your room, two rounds of golf and breakfast for two! 

Stone Mountain Golf Club

Engulfed by the pristine beauty of Georgia nature, Stone Mountain Golf Club has become one of the premier golf experiences in the Atlanta area. The golf club sits at the foothills of Stone Mountain, and meanders around Stone Mountain Lake. What makes Stone Mountain Golf Club such a remarkable experience is the unique personalities of its two courses. The Stonemont Course is a classic challenge that places emphasis on accuracy and strategic course management. The Lakemont Course complements Stonemont with a less demanding, target-oriented layout and exquisite views of Stone Mountain and the surrounding lake.

SD Bonus: Stone Mountain Park, of course! If you are up for the challenge, there are plenty of trails and, of course, a hike up Stone Mountain is always an adventure. If a little more relaxation is what you had in mind, head to The Commons Restaurant. Now open and following socially distancing guidelines, The Commons, located adjacent to the golf shop, sits at the water’s edge with mountain and lake views.
