Cabin Rentals of Georgia and The Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race invite you to the 15th annual triathalon, North Georgia Mountain-Style. Paddle the Toccoa River, run through the woods and mountain bike to participate in a challenge of a lifetime!
As we enter into the 15th year of all that celebrates friendly athletic competition, enabling us to strive to push ourselves to limits that we never thought we could attain -- we invite all serious weekend, amateur and past-your-prime athletes to come to Blue Ridge to have the time of your life. No need to travel to Kona, Hawaii for the Iron Man Triathalon, save a little gas and a lot of money and drive to Blue Ridge, where you can begin your Great Adventure. Find a bit of running through the woods intimidating? No, then move on. . . How about paddling upstream in a canoe like salmon spawning? Still no fear? Then jump on that mountain bike and fly downhill with nothing between you and a bad case of road rash but some wimpy brakes probably manufactured overseas? OK! You qualify as a prime candidate for the Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race. What you can expect during the experience: **Fresh Air**Sunshine (or maybe Rain)**Friendly People who say “Yes Sir,” “Yes Ma’am” and an occasional Y’all”**Maybe even a “Sorry, Dude” after running you into the ground on the mountain bike challenge.**Bluegrass or Country Music Blasting from a rusted out Chevy**A toothless woman checking out your groceries (but her nails are immaculate!)**Go-lights vs. Stop-lights (after all, it is just a matter of perspective.) And more!

"To go fishing is the chance to wash one's soul with pure air, with the rush of the brook, or the shimmer of sun on blue waters. It brings meekness and inspiration from the decency of nature, charity toward tackle-makers, patience toward fish, a mockery of profits and egos, an equality in the discipline of men - for all men are equal before fish." - Herbert Hoover, 31st US President
Fore! Heads up golfers! Not that we at Cabin Rentals of Georgia claim to be anything other than amateur hacks, but roughly half our staff are quite adept at wielding those irons, whether Joe is renting a cart with his buddies and carefully securing that cooler with heavy-duty bungees, or perhaps its our boss man, Gary, who is enjoying deep discussions with his favorite Speaker of the House, David Ralston, while improving his handicap. There remains unanimous agreement that there is a lot to offer north of Atlanta that would tempt any individual who is dire need of expanded lung capacity to make those miraculous hole-in-ones. With the clean air and spectacular scenery of the North Georgia Mountains, and these four undiscovered gems you will have to return to conquer, we guarantee it is worth the trip. Make the short drive to Blue Ridge after work on Friday to one of our fabulously comfortable and luxuriously appointed cabins such as The River's Edge or Eagles Landing, and you will be ready for your 18-holes on Saturday. Relax and unwind in the hot tub or on one of our expansive decks featuring outdoor fireplaces with the boys that evening and be up early enough for another 9 the next morning before heading back for Sunday night dinner with the family. Cabin Rentals of Georgia is centrally located so you can taste test more than one course on the same weekend! Have fun making the rounds!
Your four choices of fairways to discover, are all within a short 25 minutes from Blue Ridge:
For those of us who play public golf this is great news, because Old Union was originally slated as a high-end private facility intended to serve two upscale residential communities north of Blairsville. Now, this wonderful new Georgia course is open to the public, and its a real gem. The course's new owners are the folks who designed and built it so ongoing maintenance is held to a stringent standard. Though it is brand new, Old Union appears to have been in place forever and provides golfers of all stripes a challenging and enjoyable round of golf. The layout is excellent, with ample landing areas, generous trees and well-placed bunkering. There is sharp-edged mounding around the bunkers and greens as well as in stand-alone mounds strategically placed along many fairways. Despite the refined design, there are expansive natural areas and a certain wildness to the property which is not found in metro-area courses.
Variety is the best description of Butternut Creek Golf Course, which features a combination of rolling valley holes and challenging mountain slopes with mountain views from all 18 holes on the course. Each hole is unique - not a single hole is remotely similar to another. A hidden treasure, it will not remain under the radar for long. Truly one of the best courses the North Georgia Mountains has to offer, Butternut Creek Golf Course sits in downtown Blairsville below beautiful Ivy Log Mountain. Butternut Creek plays to a modest 6,500+ yards, but 4 to 6 tee boxes on every hole give challenging options for every player. Water comes into play on 13 holes for those unrecovered shots that every course must claim. Challenging mounds, undulating greens, and elevation changes are found throughout the course.
Whitepath Golf Club is truly a golf enthusiast's dream. Beautiful rolling terrain and long range views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and the Cohutta Wilderness area make this course one of the most enjoyable and picturesque golf courses in the North Georgia Mountains. The course offers small, fast bent grass greens that are meticulously maintained for your golf game. This golfer's paradise is a public course located 5 miles north of Ellijay, Georgia, just an hour and a half north of Atlanta. The golf course itself is a reflection of the mountains which surround it. Whitepath Lake, covering eight acres and the Ellijay River highlight several other creeks and ponds making it a water-rich course. Designed by Rocky Roquemore and Joe Lee the course is challenging to the low handicap golfer, yet friendly to those with higher handicaps.
Copper Basin Golf Club is a beautiful course located in the town of Isabella, with fairways featuring gentle slopes with varying elevations and widths. The course is picturesque, surrounded by hardwoods, pines and colorful crepe myrtles. Beautiful views are enjoyed from every hole in the course. The pace is slow and the staff is friendly. The course is designed for the golfer who prefers to walk and take in the fresh air and enjoy the quiet sounds of nature while contemplating the next shot. Because of its small town nature, you will never find the course congested, yet frequent tournaments are scheduled for those who enjoy making new golf buddies and want to experience that spirit of friendly competition with players of every level.
