Great Waters course is ranked No. 2, with the Oconee course No. 5 and The Landing No. 13
GREENSBORO, Ga. (July 3, 2018) – Home to one of the most diverse golf collections in the United States, Reynolds Lake Oconee has placed three of its courses on Golfweek magazine’s annual list of “Best Courses You Can Play.”
On the 2018 “Best You Can Play” Top 15 list for Georgia, Reynolds Lake Oconee’s Great Waters course is ranked No. 2, with the Oconee course No. 5 and The Landing No. 13. Together the must-play courses continue to enrich the reputation of Reynolds Lake Oconee as a premier golf venue.
The “Best Courses You Can Play” is a compilation of golf courses accessible to guest and/or public play in the United States. Each year Golfweek’s select team of more than 850 course raters survey more than 3,600 courses, grading each based on Golfweek’s 10 strict standards of evaluation. Collectively, these knowledgeable raters have turned in more than 75,000 votes to compile “Golfweek’s Best” courses lists.
“We recognize the significance of having three of our golf courses named to a highly regarded nationwide list like this,” said Wes Forester, Director of Golf at Reynolds Lake Oconee. “We appreciate Golfweek’s dedication to the game and are happy the raters share our belief that not only do we have the best collection of golf courses in Georgia, but one of the most impressive in the world.”
The Landing pioneered the golf industry on Lake Oconee when the Bob Cupp-design opened in 1986 (originally as Port Armor Golf Club), the first course along the lake. Reynolds Lake Oconee introduced the legendary Jack Nicklaus to the golf community with Great Waters, which debuted in 1992 – and has begun a complete renovation that’s to be completed in the fall of 2019. The Oconee Course is an idyllic Georgia sanctuary, with designer Rees Jones providing a pure, undisturbed setting for an authentic golf experience since 2002.
Overall, Reynolds Lake Oconee features six diverse golf course designs and is also home to The Reynolds Kingdom of Golf presented by TaylorMade – one of the only facilities in the country where recreational golfers can receive professional instruction, be fit for new equipment in the same elite environment used by Tour professionals, and have their equipment built same-day, on the spot.
Besides golf, 19,000 acres of water on Lake Oconee provide some of the state’s best fishing, along with swimming, boating, water skiing and four full-service marinas. Other activities include the Lake Club Wellness Center, Sandy Creek Sporting Grounds and Tennis Center, making Reynolds Lake Oconee a popular vacation destination.
Reynolds Lake Oconee offers a resort quality vacation with quiet, comfortable lakeside living at its best. Guest lodging includes well-appointed cottages, condominiums and hotel style club rooms throughout the property, as well as The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee.
