No matter what time of year it is, warm weather and blue skies are never far away in Tifton. Those weather conditions bode well for the ABAC golf team which has become a force to be reckoned with in the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (GCAA).

The Stallions compete against Georgia teams as well as squads from surrounding states. ABAC always plays a fall tournament schedule as well as a very tough spring lineup of matches.

The Stallions never lack for a practice site since ABAC owns and operates the nine-hole Forest Lakes Golf Club. Tifton Ophthalmologist Larry Moorman and his wife, Debra, donated the $1 million course to the ABAC Foundation in January, 2002.

ABAC uses the Forest Lakes course for practice and plays home tournaments at Ironwood Golf & Country Club Community.
