A beautiful 18 hole, par 71 semiprivate golf course that is a great shotmaker's course and features narrow fairways and a front nine that is very scenic because of the Spanish Moss hanging from off the oak trees. A clubhouse is also on site.
During 1776, the need to protect the American seaport from the British was felt, hence, Fort Morris was commissioned. In 1978, British attacked the fort, the brave Col. John McIntosh asked them to 'Come and take it'! The British forces withdrew and returned back with reinforced troops in 1779, and took over the fort renaming it as Fort George; it was under their rule till 1782. In 1812, Fort Defiance was partially built on its site, however it remained incomplete. Currently, visitors can see the fort ruins, a museum and the scenic fort surroundings.
This 137-mile (220-kilometer) river has its origins in a national forest in northeast Georgia, and its long course through the state offers a spectacular trip by canoe or kayak. Many stretches run past scenic bluffs and through hardwood forests that are quite representative of Georgia's landscape. While Altamaha's expeditions are closed between mid-November and mid-March, the chance to paddle down the Broad is not one to be missed.
