FORE Georgia Reports on Horseshoe Bend Country Club's transformation in its upcoming Fall 2015 Issue

(MARRIETA, GA) - FORE Georgia (, the "Official Golfers' Magazine of the Georgia PGA", will be showcasing the comeback and transformation of Georgia's historic Horseshoe Bend Country Club in its upcoming Fall 2015 issue.

During its early years in the 1970's and 80's Horseshoe Bend Country Club was considered among the top handful of private clubs in the Atlanta area. The club hosted national level events in golf and tennis, was the site of the original home of the American Junior Golf Association, and was recognized throughout the metro area for the quality of its ALTA and junior swim teams.

But the AJGA outgrew its home in a small building near the Horseshoe Bend Country Clubhouse and moved to more spacious surroundings at Chateau Elan, a Senior (now Champions) Tour event left after three mostly weather-plagued years and the pro tennis tournament, which featured many of the game's greatest players of the time, also switched sites to a nearby club.

In the late 90's, with its marquee events gone, Horseshoe Bend Country Club's status began to decline at about the same time as a boom in the construction of upscale private clubs in the North Fulton area was occurring. The club fell into financial distress as conditions of both the clubhouse and course continued to spiral downward, but all that changed in March of 2011.

The article reports on the 25 million dollars that oil executive and entrepreneur Ben Kenny spent over the past 5 years to transform the Roswell club and return Horseshoe Bend to the top level of the highly competitive upscale private club market in metro Atlanta.
