Check out the Joe Hamilton Recreational Trail Dedication. Thank you Joe and the Hamilton family for your generous donation.
In the early 1960’s, a group of local citizens let by the late Senator Terrell Star acquired land along Walt Stephens Road for a golf course. The first nine holes, then named Lakeside, were opened in 1963. The second nine holes opened in the mid-1970s and the course was renamed Tara Country Club.
The Hamilton family acquired the course in 1982. A developer acquired contiguous properties for a planned 160-home subdivision, known as Lake Spivey Country Club.
In conjuncti...on with the development, Joe expanded the course to 27 holes, built the 6,500 sq. ft. clubhouse with driving range, pool, tennis courts and other country club standards.
Lake Spivey Golf Club was materially redesigned in 1993 and in 2006 the course was reduced to a traditional 18 hole course. At that time, LSGC was the first course in the United States to use the now popular Crenshaw Bent grass.
In 2015, Clayton County Board of Commissioners joined with The Path Foundation to design and build multi-modal pathways for non-motorized use; such as walking, jogging, biking and electric golf cart use.
At that time, Joe Hamilton and I began a conversation that ultimately led to the wonderfully generous donation of 2.8 acres of LSGC for these pathways. The trails to-date span nearly four miles and continue to grow.
This trail is dedicated to Joe and his lifetime of generosity. #joehamiltontrail #claytonproud #lakespivey #claytonconnect
