Collegiate Invitational Hosted by Georgia Tech

Congratulations to our 2021 Collegiate Invitational Champions...Pepperdine University!

The Golf Club of Georgia and Georgia Tech collaborated and developed the idea of hosting one of the nation’s premier collegiate golf events in 2005. The basis being to bring together the nation’s top golf programs to play one of the top golf facilities in the state of Georgia and enjoy a first-class golf experience. The idea resulted in The United States Collegiate Championship, and the event has been a rousing success throughout the years. We are excited for this year’s field of incredible programs and have an eye on the returning team and 2019 championship defender, Duke. Join us this season for a great weekend of golf and see the crowning of the 2021 GCOG Collegiate Invitational Champion.

In lieu of our normal Friday night dinner, we will be offering a buffet for the collegiate participants. We are encouraging members to come for a meet & greet with some of the best college golfers around! Buffet will be available but only by reservation for our members. No ala carte will be available. Reserve your plate here and get ready meet the players!
