September 20, 2008 - Owen Glen Golf Community in Blairsville, Georgia
Owen Glen in Union County recently held a community awareness day. Guests enjoyed beautiful views, guided tours, live music, and delicious barbeque. It was a fun day with lots to see.
Owen Glen is a new golf course community located in the Ivy Log area of Union County. Old Union Golf Course at Owen Glen is the latest creation of world-renowned golf course designer Denis Griffiths. Griffiths is the only American to have ever designed a course in St. Andrews , Scotland , the birthplace of golf, and he brings that Scottish experience to Old Union. Griffiths has designed approximately 100 golf courses internationally, including courses in England , Spain , South Africa , and Japan .
Old Union at Owen Glen offers a secluded golfing experience. Griffiths ' philosophy is to design the best course with minimum natural disturbance and Old Union is a perfect example. The course has several natural water features including Ivy Log Creek. Construction on the 7,500 yard course has already begun and all 18 holes are expected to open in summer 2009.
Designer and owner of the new golf course, Griffiths says, "Purchasing the Old Union course is a fantastic opportunity to not only design a new golf course, but it also allows the luxury of working in the beautiful North Georgia area. This course will offer something for every golfer and I think it will be a great addition to the active, outdoor lifestyle that Blairsville, Georgia encourages."
Owen Glen offers 235 acres of breathtaking mountain views and gentle rolling hills. Developed by Ivy Log Development Company, Owen Glen features one to three acre home sites including a limited number of golf course sites. Sales of the initial 26 home sites began on September 1, 2008 and one year golf membership are included. Home sites at Owen Glen are priced from the $70,000s.
