Bring Your Clubs to Covington’s Golf Courses

Is the springtime boost in temperature and the official start to the golfing season putting a pep in your step? If so, now is the perfect time to schedule a round of golf at one of Covington's two scenic golf courses.

Just minutes from I-20 is The Oaks Course. Lush with oak trees along with well-manicured greens, this unique gem promises each visitor unforgettable views and an assortment of times. If you live within 50 miles of Covington or visit the area often, ask about their rewards program and special membership rates.

A tidbit of information for the golfing aficionado, Bobby Jones' vision of how golf should be played gave way for the innovation and design of The Oaks Course. Having this in mind, it was no surprise when scenes from the 2004 biographical drama film based on the golfing legend's rise from obscurity, "Bobby Jones: A Stroke of Genius", were set to film on location in Covington. This is yet another addition to the long list of cinematography that makes Newton County what it is most widely known as, The Hollywood of the South™.

Another select location is Ashton Hills Golf Club, highlighted as one of Golf Advisor's Top 15 in the state of Georgia. With their first-rate fairways, prime greens and amenity filled clubhouse, your experience on the links at Ashton Hills will be nothing short of memorable.

Before you tee off at either course, be sure you've got the right balls in your golf bag. Locally manufactured Bridgestone golf balls provide a selection of models to fit any style and capability of play. Whether you choose The Oaks Course or Ashton Hills Golf Club, these balls will pair nicely with the Covington golf course of your choosing. You can find a wide assortment of varying models of Bridgestone Golf balls to suit your preference at either golf shop, as well as apparel and much more.

Much like The Oaks Course who has their own Hollywood ties, Bridgestone Golf had their moment in the spotlight recently at this year's 45th Annual Baltimore American Advertising Show. GKV took top honors by winning a few gold and silver ADDY's (aka The American Advertising Awards®) at this year's 45th Annual Baltimore American Advertising Show for various YouTube advertising campaigns featuring Bridgestone Golf staff pros. The "Get Better. Win." and "Tiger's Tips" featurettes starring Tiger Woods gave both GKV and Bridgestone Golf accolades in the world of creative marketing. It just goes to show that Covington's talent extends to sport and film!

No matter what level of the scale your love of the game of golf slides on, Covington's got you covered. Whether it be playing the game in action, shopping for an "above par" token of affection geared towards that avid golfer in your life, or swapping stories on the green, stop in and let Covington, GA become part of your yearly Master's adventure.
