Stone Mountain Golf Club
Southern States Junior Classics is proud to announce our partnership with Stone Mountain Golf Club to host our flagship 3-day event, the Summer OPEN Championship. What makes Stone Mountain Golf Club such a remarkable experience is the unique personalities of it's 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.
Designed and built in 1969 by the renowned Robert Trent Jones Sr., this masterpiece has offered a pure test of golf from all tees since it's inception. The Stonemont Course at Stone Mountain Golf Club has played host to numerous national, professional events as well as Georgia amateur championships.
The Stonemont Course is laid out over gently rolling and cantered fairways of premier Bermuda grass and greens of immaculate combination of bent grass and Bermuda putting surfaces. The par 71 layout stretches 6,751 yards for SSJC, and is challenging with its narrow fairways, strategically placed bunkers and numerous stands of Georgia pines.
Georgia native John LaFoy designed the Lakemont Course at Stone Mountain Golf Club. It features incredible views of Stone Mountain and the lake.
The front 9 holes of the Lakemont Course wind around Stone Mountain Lake, with six holes having water in play. The back 9 offers beautiful holes with rock outcroppings and four holes where water comes into play. LaFoy's penchant for mounding and dramatic bunkering is evident throughout the course. The dramatic elevation changes offer a unique ambience that appeals to every golfer.
