- Stephens County’s “All Things Currahee” Day at the Georgia State Capitol was a tremendous success Tuesday, February 19, 2013. The theme this year was taken from the Currahee Club golf course in Toccoa recently being recognized as one of The Rolex World’s Top 1,000 Golf Courses, according to the biennial ranking recently published by D’Algue Selection out of Paris, France.
“Jim Fazio was our special guest this year and was honored at the Capitol with a Resolution for his work,” says Wendi Bailey, T-SC Chamber of Commerce president. “Jim is the acclaimed architect of the Currahee Club golf course that is the centerpiece of the breathtaking 1,200-acre community framed by both Lake Hartwell and the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.”
As part of the celebration, each Georgia legislator received an invitation to be a Currahee Club member for a day that includes a round of golf at the award-winning golf course.
The Day included the House of Representatives and the Senate each passing a Resolution officially proclaiming February 19th as Toccoa-Stephens County’s “All Things Currahee” Day, recognizing the attention Currahee Club and Fazio’s compelling golf course design have brought to the town, the county and the state.
After that, the delegation from Toccoa, including Currahee Club Managing Director Andrew Ward, members of the Currahee team and Fazio, met with the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State and Speaker of the House for group photos.
Later, a luncheon was sponsored by the North Georgia Credit Union at which the Currahee team and Fazio met with Senator John Wilkinson and Representative Dan Gasaway. Others invited to the lunch included Mike Beatty, the commissioner to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and Cheryl Smith, the northeast Georgia tourism product manager for the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
