History Of Sky Valley Country Club

 

Not many clubs have the history and heritage of Sky Valley Country Club.

 

Originally the Sky Valley land was the Square D Cattle Ranch. The land later became known as the original Kingwood Country Club that then evolved into a Ski Resort.  In addition to the ski slopes, the resort housed a cozy lodge complete with a floor-to-ceiling wood burning fireplace.  The Lodge became the focal point of Sky Valley, and its guests enjoyed excellent cuisine, professional service and of course, the camaraderie of its community.

 

The name of the resort town was changed to Sky Valley, which was incorporated in 1978. Later, the Time-Share facility opened t

 

 

 

 

Recent History

 

The slopes, lodge, and golf course were purchased by Merrill Trust. The ski slopes were then closed.

 

While improvements to the community were plentiful, none were as significant as the golf course renovation done by Bill Bergin, a well known Atlanta based golf course architect. The two year renovation created a breathtaking golf course.

 

Since 1971, it is home to Sky Valley Resort (now known as The Sky Valley Country Club), which features golfing, tennis, swimming, and many other activities. The resort formerly had the only winter ski area in Georgia, but after changing ownership in 2004, the resort's ski slopes were permanently closed. The only highway or other through-road is the Dillard/Highlands Road (Georgia 246 and N.C. 106) between Dillard, Georgia and Highlands, North Carolina. The northern city limit is the North Carolina state line, where the highway zigzags, crossing in five different places (two of which are into and out of the city)!

 

The downsizing of the economy in 2008 resulted in many changes to the Sky Valley Country Club community.   To ensure its sustainability, the home owners of Sky Valley decided to join together and purchase the golf course that was adjacent to their homes. Following that, the decision was made to build a new Clubhouse to enhance the course, and provide our members with excellent cuisine, professional service, and a beautiful socializing venue!

 

By May 2012, Sky Valley Country Club had triumphantly returned in thought, word, and deed to those who live in, and love Sky Valley.  The Valley and it’s beloved Club are thriving.  Sky Valley Country Club is now going into its 6th season of operation with a strong, committed membership.  Generations of families continue to create life-long memories and widen their circle of friends.
