Atlanta, Georgia - Mar 27-29

American Chemical Society Meeting & Exposition
March 26 - 30, 2006
Atlanta, GA

http://www.chemistry.org

Going to be in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center. Are there any sites in the area that would be giving a pull this time of year? Certainly not in slalom shape!!! Showing high 60s, low 40s BRRRRrrr like New England temps?

How about recommended golf courses in the area?

You might try Water Ski Atlanta. If you want to take a run on Sunday, I'll be happy to give you a pull, you can be at the lake in 45 minutes from ATL. I would offer up Saturday but I have to head up a pig roast for my old Fraternity up here in Athens. There are a lot of great golf courses as well. Chastain Park, & Bobby Jones are some decent public courses in town. Stone Mountain park has two nice courses as well. P.M. me if you want more info. The weather should be really nice (unless it rains) at the end of the month.

You are not going to send that man to "Crappy" Jones. If you play there, don't forget your helmet, you are going to need it.

Chaser - There is a private lake over by the airport, not sure what the name of it is or if they allow guests or not?? Here is the link http://www.waterskiatlanta.com/property.php

Don't know if I can be of much help with a tow, I am about an hour + south of Atlanta. But if you want to ride out...


As far as golf, I would recommend the Frog, the course at the Georgian Resort. It is out in Villa Rica and it is about a 30/40 minute ride from downtown, it is reasonable as far as prices go and it is a great tract.

I've had some great memories at Bobby's course, but at the same time I'm not very good. You can also try The Georgia Club, it is about 45 minutes north of Atlanta but very nice. St. Marlo Country Club in Duluth is good, about 20 minutes north. If you are in town and want to stay in town I suggest one of the two Stone Mountain courses:

I can't/try not to remember most of my trips to "Crappy" Jones, don't really know why, something to do with those Heineken Keg Cans.

For something closer, you might want to try Southerness, I used to work there years ago, but I cannot vouch for the shape it is in. There is a course in Covington that is really fun to play The Oaks.

Try this link, you might be able to save some cash.

If your boss is really into golf and you can "drive a little" say an hour, you might try one of the courses on Lake Oconee.....Reynolds Plantation and Cuscowilla. He can golf and you can ski!!!! That's were my boat will be that weekend. Plus the Great Waters course at Reynolds is one of the best in Georgia (that you can get on).

If those don't help...I know of a little course down in Augusta, but you'll have to bring your own green jacket.

So how much Ice do you think they have packed around the azaleas down in Augusta?

Probably a ton, as usual.
