Metro Atlanta, Georgia
Most of the shooting for ‘Murder at the Country Club’ was carried out in and around Metro Atlanta with the eponymous city being the metropolitan area’s cultural, economic, and demographic center.

For taping most of the interior scenes, they probably set up camp inside actual establishments as well as on a soundstage or two of one of the film studios in Metro Atlanta.
The production team of ‘Murder at the Country Club’ also traveled just outside of the metropolitan area to the city of LaGrange. To be specific, they taped many important scenes in and around the Hills & Dales Estate at 1916 Hills and Dales Drive in LaGrange, which served as the country club where the murder upon which the entire narrative revolves takes place. Completed construction in 1916 for textile magnate Fuller Earle Callaway and his wife Ida Cason Callaway, the historic home sprawls across 13,000 square feet and consists of several gardens.
As far as the exterior portions are concerned, they were recorded across Atlanta and its surrounding areas.
