The Capital City Club
One of the oldest private clubs in the south, Brookhaven's Capital City Club offers its members the finest in recreation, dining, and amenities.
The Capital City Country Club was founded in 1883 just after the Civil War and has had many high-profile members and guests over the years, including President Grover Cleveland, Mayor William B. Hartsfield, golf pro Robert “Bobby” Jones, and Asa Griggs Candler, the founder of the Coca-Cola Company. Brookhaven’s Capital City Club was instituted in 1911 and has since been included on the National Register of Historic Places. The Club has been featured in many local publications and is widely known as one of the most prestigious private clubs in the Atlanta area.
There are three individual facilities that make up the Capital City Club membership. In addition to the Brookhaven Club you also have the City Club located in Downtown Atlanta and the Crabapple Club located about 30 minutes north of the city in Milton, GA.

The Capital City Club has unparalleled amenities, including a spectacular golf course, luxurious dining and event spaces, tennis courts, a swimming pool with an indoor/outdoor pavilion, a lake, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility.
