Atlanta Country Club is located off Paper Mill Road in East Cobb in the Sope Creek Elementary school district. Consistently ranked as one of the top golf courses in the country, and originally designed by Willard C. Byrd, the course is built adjacent to historic Sope Creek and Confederate paper mill ruins from the Civil War era. These ruins may be viewed from the signature 13th Hole.
Over the years modifications to the course have been made by Jack Nicklaus, Bob Cupp and most recently Mike Riley. The newest changes came in 2001 with the redesign and renovation of all eighteen of the green complexes.
Homes range from the high $400,000s to $5.5 million.
The boundaries begin at the Chattahoochee River at Johnson Ferry Road, follow Johnson Ferry Rd. Northeast to Powers Rd, left onto Powers Road, left on Woodlawn to Paper Mill, all of Paper Mill Road to Sope Creek and south along the eastern edge of Sope Creek to the Chattahoochee River along Columns Drive until it meets back up at Johnson Ferry Road. Chattahoochee Plantation was incorporated as a city in 1961 as a legislated boundary to prevent the city of Atlanta from annexing into Cobb County. Despite this, it never organized a city government, and its city charter was revoked in 1995.
