4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   Reynolds Lake Oconee (Great Waters course) Est. 1992

Where2Golf says: 

Reynolds Lake Oconee (Great Waters course): Great Waters is generally recognised as one of Georgia's top-rated golf courses and a very good tree-lined parkland layout. The layout begins with a parkland-style front nine, through rolling hills and thick forests. The short par-4 ninth hole is the first of the lake holes, with water creeping in on the right side of the green. The back-nine is a completely different experience with eight of the final nine holes touching the lake. A must play if you are in the area.

Spread around the extensive lakeside and residential development of Reynolds Lake Oconee are 117-holes of golf, contained in five public-access courses and the members-only Creek Club course. A second private course is planned/in development and will be known as the Richland Club.

The Reynolds Lake Oconee courses have been designed and crafted by a veritable Who's Who of great course architects, including: Jack Nicklaus (Great Waters), Bob Cupp (The Landing and The Preserve), Tom Fazio (27-hole National course), Rees Jones (The Oconee), Jim Engh (Creek Club) and Pete Dye (Richland Club).

Did you know?

Recognised for its natural beauty and riverside forests, the Oconee River has provided a family retreat for over 100 years. Many families quickly decided to "linger longer," turning one-or-two day visits into three-four-or five day family retreats.

By 1982, the river had become Lake Oconee, and Reynolds Plantation, now known as Reynolds Lake Oconee, was founded. It has evolved into a globally recognised resort, community and club, with six golf courses, nine dining venues, four full-service marinas, swimming pools, 21 miles of walking and biking trails, a world class fitness and tennis club, and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel at its centre.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
