Location, facilities, knowledge Ready to put your game face on? We know a thing or two about winning at Lake Lanier. From Olympic Gold to some of the best fishing in the southeast, Lake Lanier is the premier destination for your sports event. It’s not every location that can comfortably host everything from world class fishing tournaments, challenging mountain disk golf and 1,000-mile road races. Just 45 minutes north of Atlanta, Lake Lanier was the site of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games Flat-Water Events. We also hosted the 2010 FLW Forest Wood Cup.In fact FLW was so impressed with our lake and our community that they are doing the unheard of: coming back to Lake Lanier in 2012! It’s not unusual to see dragon boats on the lake or gravity-defying wake boarders.But water isn’t all we have. World class sports fields and venues surround the 692 miles of shoreline. Softball, baseball, soccer and lacrosse are easily accommodated, as are triathlons, adventure races and motor sports. In fact, we host the American Lemans Series Petit Lemans at Road Atlanta in the fall. Racing teams and 100,000 spectators gather from all over the world to experience 1,000 miles of racing in one day. Location, facilities, knowledge…Game on at Lake Lanier!
