Our Story

Welcome to Trophy Club Apalachee!

I'm Jeff Whitt. I, along with my wife, Holly, and son, Nathan, purchased Trophy Club Apalachee from American Golf on December 20, 2018.

I started my career in golf as a 13-year-old at Tannenhauf Golf Club in Alliance, Ohio. After high school, I joined the United States Army as an Airborne Ranger serving as a Senior Scout Observer for the LRSD 125th MI BN 25th ID. After serving our great country, I used the GI Bill to attend Ferris State University's Professional Golf Management program. I earned my PGA Membership in 1998 while working as a Golf Professional at the famed Firestone Country Club in Akron, OH. Since then, I've worked with hundreds of golf clubs across the country, ultimately becoming the Executive Vice President of Century Golf Partners based in Dallas, TX.

My son, Nate has followed in my footsteps and will become a PGA Member in the spring of 2020. We're both excited to put our family's stamp on this great club!

In the last year, we've invested over $500,000 on capital improvements to Trophy Club Apalachee. The clubhouse is completely remodeled, and with our new Southern Pride smoker, Pitmaster Otis Pollard offers the best BBQ ever produced at a golf course!

In 2020, we're upping our game with a new chemical and fertilizer program. That, along with our new greens mowers will provide better turf conditions and smoother, more consistent greens.

Our General Manager, Cliff Coffelt, aims to "get better every day." We're committed to providing you with an enjoyable day on the course, a happy belly, and refuge from the stresses of daily life. We look to do unique things to add to your experience like Bluetooth-enabled speakers on our new Yamaha golf carts. Our professional staff monitors place of play - we want your round to be swift, smooth, and fun!

Our goal is to earn your trust. We want you to be part of our club.

If you're just passing through Dacula, stop by Trophy Club Apalachee and be part of our family for the day!

Sincerely,

Jeff Whitt, PGA
