Where People, Lifestyle and Design Live Together, Along With Award Winning Golf.
In May of 2022, The Tavern at Old Toccoa Farm opened with a member-sponsored wedding for 200 people, and ever since, the semi-private food and beverage operation (open to the public with a reservation), continues to demonstrate that a next-level amenity has been added to this special community. 2022 has also been a strong year of home construction starts with 38 homes now completed and 17 new well-designed custom homes under construction. By the time this article is published, the Hillside Cottages, OTF’s charming new one-bedroom over-night stay units, will be welcoming members and visiting guests for the holiday season.
With world-class golf, new amenities and a fast-growing community of new homes and members, OTF is continuing to experience a significant level of interest for those looking for a special place to call home in the mountains.
The developer of Old Toccoa Farm is adding new real estate to the market with the soon to be launched Mountainside at Old Toccoa Farm. This never before developed land within Old Toccoa Farm, will offer 50+/- residential lots certain to draw attention to interested buyers.
Mountain views, private estate lots, all with state-of-the-art utilities services, including fiber optics, private sewer, City of Blue Ridge water and underground power. Old Toccoa Farm Realty is now taking reservations for the release of this new real estate as well as another phase of cottages that will be offered around the first of the year.
There is much to be excited about, and 2023 is setting up to be another strong year for this one-of-a-kind community, located five miles from Historic Downtown Blue Ridge.

Accolades keep pouring in for Old Toccoa Farm’s golf course. The course conditions are best in class with beautifully maintained zoysia fairways and tees, and meticulously maintained bentgrass greens. The enhancements to the golf course and the opening of the new Golf Shop and The Tavern, have transformed this community into a destination golf experience on par with some of the best in the United States. “It’s truly humbling to see how our 2022 Golf Digest rating has affected our consumer reach within our golf operations. We are now welcoming golfers from all over the world. We still pull a majority of our visiting golfers from the southeast, but there is a growing and steady flow of golfers arriving from all over the U.S. and from across the pond.”
With their Hillside Cottages coming online this holiday season, they expect this trend to continue into 2023. “The design and overall charm of our 15 new one-bedroom, Hillside Cottages have us really excited for 2023.” Current members building their homes will finally have a place to stay during the 10-month construction schedule and other members who have not yet decided to build, will now be able to visit with convenience and stay “within the brand” rather than renting a cabin outside the community. “It’s only right that we have facilities here to serve our members and their guests. This has been a long time coming, but we couldn’t be more excited to bring these units online. Vicky Decker, OTF member and owner of New Blue Home in downtown Blue Ridge, has designed the interiors of each cottage, to-the-nines, as they say. And the landscaping work from Cartwright Landscaping has created a setting within the hillside, which overlooks the 7th hole and the Toccoa River, a true first-class hospitality offering from Old Toccoa Farm. “When you couple the golf experience with the coziness and comfort we have here within the Hillside Cottages, along with the culinary experience being developed by our talented team at The Tavern, it’s exciting to think of where we will be a year or two from now.”
The goal is to continue to add value to the community and continue to ensure that it’s done in a responsible manner. Responsible environmentally. Responsible with regards to members. And responsibly as it relates to Old Toccoa Farm being a part of the greater community of Blue Ridge and Fannin County. Changing the area is not in their plans and they are laser focused on adding value to the area in the most responsibly way possible.
Community outreach and member activities are tightly woven into the DNA of Old Toccoa Farm. The developer of Old Toccoa Farm, along with many of its employees and members are actively involved with local charities and support programs, including, River’s Alive, Habitat for Humanity, The Open Arms Home for Children, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc., and Casting for Recovery.
The Old Toccoa Farm social calendar for 2023 should be the best yet. A thriving Ladies and Men’s Golf Association, a growing number of members fly fishing and shooting sporting clays, (OTF enjoys a sporting grounds partnership with local Noontootla Creek Farms) and a robust menu at The Tavern, filled with culinary, viniculture, spirts and music events will provide the backdrop for members and guests to gather and enjoy the beauty of Old Toccoa Farm.
If you are looking for a community in the north Georgia Mountains, and specifically conveniently located to the charm of downtown Blue Ridge, you owe it to yourself to check out Old Toccoa Farm. A true sense of community, along with strong architectural covenants, creates a unique offering in the mountains of North Georgia. At Old Toccoa Farm, people, lifestyle, and design live together beautifully…and the golf….well….that’s the icing on the cake! ACLM
