Greensboro, GA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
Home to one of the most elite collections of golf courses in the United States, Reynolds Plantation has been honored by GOLF Magazine with two courses on its “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” list, and four on its list of “Best Courses Near You.”
Leading the list of honors for Reynolds Plantation is the Great Waters course, ranked No. 46 on the Top 100 nationally, with the Oconee course ranked No. 67.
On the “Best Near You” Top 15 list for Georgia, Reynolds Plantation captured four spots, more than any other venue in the South: Great Waters is No. 2, with Oconee Course No. 4, the National Course No. 5 and The Landing No. 11. Together the Lake Oconee gems continue to enrich the reputation of Reynolds Plantation as a premier golf community and preferred golf destination.
The “Best Courses Near You” is a state-by-state compilation of golf courses accessible to guest and/or public play. It is part of GOLF’s “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” rankings published in the September 2014 issue and online at http://www.golf.com.
“We truly appreciate being recognized for this level of excellence,” said Mark Lammi, Vice President of Golf Operations at Reynolds Plantation, located on Lake Oconee, between Atlanta and Augusta. “The quality and diversity of all six venues to play at Reynolds Plantation gives us one of the greatest collections of golf courses in the country.”
All four courses honored have undergone various degrees of renovation the past two years. Greens at The Oconee, designed by Rees Jones, and Tom Fazio’s 27-hole gem the National, were converted to Champion bermudagrass, providing superior year round playing surfaces. A complete bunker renovation and landscape beautification was also completed at the National. The Landing, the historic Bob Cupp design that introduced golf to the Lake Oconee region, and Jack Nicklaus’s Great Waters also received major enhancements over the past two years.
The golf course projects were 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.
Great Waters will be the venue for the inaugural Big Break Invitational Reynolds Plantation Sept. 30-Oct. 3. The 72-hole tournament features a select field that encompasses past Big Break champions.
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.
