Here are a few quick facts: Par 3s and 5s make up the heart of this 27-hole layout with an interesting series of problems for the player to solve. The par 5's are definitely for the adventurous, offering compelling opportunities to reach the green in two. The longest par 4's stretch to over 460 yards from the back tees and demand ingenuity to score. The par 3s at The Georgia Club may look beautiful, but like the game itself, they are not as easy to play as they may appear. Golfers now have 27 exciting reasons to love The Georgia Club, as the opening of nine new holes in 2006 made The Chancellors Course a 27-hole golf experience. Approximate yardage for the Athens Junior Classic are as follows: Boys 10U: 5,064: Girls 13U: 5,189 ; Boys 11-13/Girls 14-18: 5,718; Boys 14-15/Boys 16-18: 6,749.
