Reynolds Plantation - Oconee Course
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
Although golf was branded as a “gentleman’s sport” since the 15th century, the game has become one of the highest participation sports for women in this decade. The number of women golfers creates a high demand for resorts and residential properties within golf communities. The Reynolds Plantation golf courses have been recognized in the media for their supreme golfing facilities and ideal Lake Oconee real estate within a golfing community.
Tucked away just beside Lake Oconee lies the thriving gated community of Reynolds Plantation. Reynolds Plantation is the home for families and retirees and also welcomes visitors and guests interested in becoming members of the community. As a member of Reynolds Plantation, individuals can enjoy participating in the 30 different organized clubs, Health and Wellness Center, marinas, clubhouses, tennis center, hiking trails and the award winning golf courses. Recently, Golf Digest Magazine named the Oconee Golf Course one of the best golf courses in America for women.
During the month of July, Golf Digest ranked The Oconee Golf Course, one of the Reynolds Plantation golf courses, on its list of America’s “Top 50 Golf Courses for Women.” Oconee Golf Course was originally designed in 2002 by Rees Jones and ranked No. 15 in this month’s print and digital publication. The world class course earned recognition for its challenging layout, scenic landscapes and breathtaking views of Lake Oconee. The Oconee Golf Course was also recognized in 2011, and has now solidified its reputation as one of the best golf courses for women and increases the demand for the Lake Oconee real estate.
The Oconee Golf Course is currently under renovation to enhance the facilities and landscaping this summer. With the approval of Rees Jones, the renovations include: improving drainage and irrigation systems, polishing the tree maintenance and expanding the practice facilities. The Oconee Golf Course is scheduled to reopen for the 2013 fall season. Vice President of Golf Operations at Reynolds Plantation, Mark Lammi, is proud of all of the Reynolds Plantation golf courses. Although Golf Digest ranked The Oconee Golf Course one of the best courses for women, Lammi invites both men and women to visit the community.
With the media abuzz about The Oconee Golf Course and the pristine reputation of the Reynolds Plantation gated community, families and retirees are invited to explore the opportunities. Guest accommodations are available for visitors interested bringing their “A-Game” to one of the award-winning golf courses or for families or retirees interested in the Lake Oconee real estate.
