about the club
Okefenokee Country Club was established on January 29, 1923, as Waycross Golf Club located in the city limits of Waycross, GA. In 1935 the name was changed to Okefenokee Country Club. The Club was moved to its current location in 1977.
The 18-hole Championship Golf Course was built in 1977 by Joseph L. Lee. It is laid on natural southern Georgia terrain back dropped by ancient oaks and towering pines. The Spanish moss hanging from the gnarled old oaks sways in the summer breezes. The beautiful Satilla River comes into view as it “snakes” its way along a few holes.
