Jemseks Reacquire Summer Grove Golf Club near Atlanta


Jemsek Golf, the family company that originally designed, built and opened Summer Grove Golf Club in Newnan, Ga., in 1999, has reacquired the 18-hole facility and opened it to the public and new member play.

Jemsek Golf owned and operated Summer Grove for seven years before selling it to Canongate Golf Clubs in 2006. Canongate, which ran Summer Grove as a private club, transferred the facility to Jemsek Golf on February 15.

Jemsek Golf president, Katherine Jemsek, has retained Affiniti Golf Partners to help promote and market the facility to local and regional golfers. "Jemsek Golf is pleased to be back in the Atlanta area and especially back at Summer Grove," she said.

Designed by Joe Jemsek and Jeff Burton, Summer Grove was named Best New Public Golf Course by Golf Digest in 2000. The par-72 layout, which stretches 6,954 yards from the tips, offers five sets of tees.

The course is the centerpiece of an eponymous 1,400-acre gated community off I-85. Amenities include a private 100-acre lake, three swimming pools, tennis courts, parks, playgrounds and miles of pedestrian paths.

"We're equally excited to re-engage with residents of the Summer Grove community, many of whom participated in our grand opening back in '99," added Jemsek. "The club is already busy planning fun events, golf activities and special holiday plans to foster a fellowship between the club and the families who live at Summer Grove."

"We are grateful for the opportunity to use our decades of experience in the Atlanta golf market and the benefit of Affiniti's 60,000-plus local database of customers to help re-launch Summer Grove as a marvelous golf facility now open to the public," said Affiniti founding partner, Whitney Crouse.
