Reynolds Lake Oconee Features 99 holes of championship golf on five different courses, available exclusively to Reynolds members and to guests of The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee (the highest rated Golf Resort in the 2005 Zagat Survey of "America's Top Golf Golf Courses").

2.       The Plantation Course was the first course built at Reynolds Lake Oconee, and was designed by Bob Cupp with the insight of U.S. Open Champions Fuzzy Zoeller and Hubert Green.  Long a favorite of Reynolds members and visiting guests, the course was named “Best New Resort Course” by Golf Digest when it debuted in 1988.

4.       The National Course is a 27-hole masterpiece that makes great use of the rolling terrain, hardwood forests and water views of the Oconee River Valley.  Tom Fazio sculpted the three distinct nines through the natural terrain, making use of streams, ponds and the lake to create a course named by Golfweek as one of America’s “Top Real Estate Courses”.

Five sets of tees allow players to take on as much of that challenge as they desire.  With a caddie service and the adjacent Reynolds Golf Academy, the Oconee provides a great golf experience.  The course has been showered with awards, including the #5 ranking in GOLF FOR WOMEN Magazine’s “50 Best Courses For Women” and “10 Best New Upscale Courses” in Golf Digest.
