Golfweek’s List of Best Resort Courses
Adding a new award to its impressive resume, the Oconee Course at Reynolds Plantation has been named to the Golfweek magazine list of the nation’s “Best Resort Courses” for 2015.
Located on Lake Oconee, between Atlanta and Augusta, the Rees Jones design debuts in the rankings at No. 46, one of only two Georgia destination golf venues selected, based on a point system. The list of Top 100 resort courses is published in Golfweek’s annual edition of the “Ultimate Guide To Golf Course Living And Great Escapes” and is posted on www.golfweek.com.
Home to one of the most elite collections of golf courses in the United States, Reynolds Plantation has earned numerous honors – not only for the Oconee Course, but for Great Waters (the venue for this year’s inaugural Big Break Invitational), the National Course, The Landing, Plantation and members-only Creek Club design. Together the Lake Oconee gems continue to enrich the reputation of Reynolds Plantation as one of the premier golf communities, as well as golf destinations in the game.
Several recent golf course renovation projects are part of a multi-million dollar renovation that touched nearly every facet of the award-winning Reynolds Plantation residential golf community, as well as The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, a AAA Five Diamond resort. The Reynold’s Golf Academy is run by world-renowned author and instructor Charlie King, listed in Golf Magazine’s Top 100 instructors in the country.
Beyond golf, Reynolds Plantation offers an array of recreation opportunities: 374 miles of shoreline along Lake Oconee, Georgia’s second-largest lake, is ideal for bass fishing, recreational boating and water skiing; four marinas with complete services; the Lake Club Wellness Center and Peter Burwash International Tennis Center present options for complete fitness activities; dining and casual atmospheres at The Landing Clubhouse, the Plantation Grille and Linger Longer Steakhouse in the Oconee Clubhouse.
Vacation guests at Reynolds Plantation can choose from individual cottages within the private gates, while enjoying a variety of amenities. Accommodations also are available at The Ritz-Carlton Lodge on property.
