Sandy Springs Golf

Because the game of golf requires so much more available land than a basketball court, hockey rink or even a baseball field requires and golf courses need continual maintenance, golf club membership dues and costs for playing are relatively high when compared to the cost of playing most other sports. Traditionally golf has been played primarily by royalty and wealthy people but there are now so many public golf courses available to people at an affordable cost that this is no longer true. Sandy Springs is an affluent community and golf is a popular sport among people of all ages. As one example of official city support for the game of golf, the Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber of Commerce is helping to promote golf and business by sponsoring a golf tournament that will hopefully become an annual event.
