ClubCorp acquires Atlanta-area club

ClubCorp is not slowing down when it comes to acquisitions. The world’s largest owner of private clubs acquired Brookstone Golf & Country Club, in Acworth, Ga.

ClubCorp cancelled a multi-club acquisition from Concert Golf Partners earlier this summer after David Pillsbury was announced as the company’s new CEO. But Pillsbury said the company would still be aggressive on the acquisition front. This is the first purchase since he took over. 

Brookstone is a family friendly golf and lifestyle club located in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, 30 miles north of Atlanta. It has been managed by American Golf, and was that company’s only private club in Georgia. 

ClubCorp plans a major capital project that will renovate and redesign the dining spaces, add a new fitness center and enhance the aquatics, tennis and golf experiences.

“Brookstone Golf & Country Club — with outstanding golf and an active membership — fits perfectly into our portfolio of clubs,” Pillsbury said. “With the planned renovation, Brookstone will become even more of a lifestyle club, giving more value to membership and helping members connect at new levels – with their families, their friends and their health and wellness. As pleased as we are to welcome Brookstone to the ClubCorp family, I believe the members will be even more pleased with their ‘new’ club once the remodel is complete.”

ClubCorp owns and operates nearly 30 golf and country clubs and two city clubs – the Buckhead Cluband The Commerce Club– in the greater Atlanta area. Brookstone is ClubCorp’s third property in the northwest Atlanta market, joining Eagle Watch Golf Clubin Woodstock and Bentwater Golf Club, also in Acworth.

Brookstone Golf & Country Club’s 6,815-yard, par-72 championship layout was designed by Larry Nelson and takes advantage of the landscape’s natural contours and beauty. Clubhouse features include upscale and casual dining, men’s and women’s locker rooms, and pro shop. Additional amenities include eight lighted tennis courts (including two clay courts), a junior Olympic-size swimming pool and separate adult pool.
