The Georgia Open is the Georgia state open golf tournament, open to both amateur and professional golfers.  It is organized by the PGA of America, Georgia Section.  It has been played annually since 1954, at a variety of courses around the state, including but not limited to: Ford Plantation, The Legends at Chateau Elan, Champions Retreat, Barnsley Gardens, Reynolds Plantation, Harbor Club, The Frog, Settindown Creek, and Jekyll Island Golf Club.

Notable past champions include:  Tommy Aaron (3), Paul Claxton, Stephen Keppler (2), Franklin Langham, Steve Melnyk, Larry Nelson, Tim O’Neal, Dave Schreyer, Gene Sauers (3), Tim Simpson (4), Bob Tway, DeWitt Weaver (4) and Tim Weinhart.

The Georgia PGA received the news from Ford Plantation that they are unable to host the Georgia Open this year, and found themselves in need of a host site for this year’s event.  L&J Acquisitions has been a proud sponsor of the Georgia PGA and the Georgia PGA Championship since 2018, and after being approached by the Georgia PGA on the subject, the opportunity was discussed with our Director of Agronomy and Head Golf Professional.  After careful consideration, the decision was made to host the 2020 Georgia Open, as scheduled on August 6th – 9th.

Note, the event will return to Ford Plantation in 2021.

Since its inception, Jennings Mill Country Club has hosted a wide range of professional and amateur golf events, including but not limited to: WEB.com Athens Regional Foundation Classic (2006-09), PGA Tour Q-School (10), PGA Tour Champions Q-School, USGA Qualifiers, GSGA Qualifiers and most recently the Georgia PGA Professional National Championship Qualifier (2019).  On the heels of the announcement that the club is going private on September 1st, hosting the Georgia Open, especially under the circumstances is really good for the club.  Therefore, we hope that you share our excitement to help our friends at the Georgia PGA and the golfers in this state, and will support the club’s decision and event.

In addition, our own Head Golf Professional, Gary Miller will be in the field!
