Reynolds Lake Oconee (Preserve course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1988

Reynolds Lake Oconee (Preserve course): The Preserve (formerly known as the Plantation course) is a well-rated and always popular golf course. The Preserve takes advantage of the natural, rolling topography with the end result being an enjoyably playable course. The back tees are challenging enough for low handicappers and forward tees forgiving enough for beginners. The layout reopened in 2016 after being renovated by original designer Bob Cupp.

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

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
