The original golf course built at Lake Oconee, The Landing made its landmark debut in 1986, setting the stage for what has become a premier golf destination. The par-72 course, which plays to a maximum of 7,048 yards, was designed by award-winning architect Bob Cupp, who directed a major renovation that was unveiled in spring 2013.
It features a variety of holes that wind through naturally wooded areas and rolling hills, making the course enjoyable for players of all levels. Three holes wrap dramatically along the shoreline while the green settings and shot values make this one of the premium tests of golf on Lake Oconee.
The impressive elevations, dense forests, and breathtaking views that define the 27 holes at the National returned freshly renovated in the spring of 2014 following the first major remodel of the Tom Fazio design since the original 18 holes debuted.
The three nines are the Ridge and Bluff, which debuted in 1997, and the Cove, which debuted in 2000.
All are par 36 courses that can be combined to create 18 holes that play to a maximum of 7,034 yards from a choice of five sets of tees.
The 6,698-yard, par-72 Plantation Course at Reynolds Lake Oconee was designed originally by noted architect Bob Cupp, along with U.S. Open Champions Fuzzy Zoeller and Hubert Green. In 2005 Cupp returned to modernize and upgrade the structure of the golf course. Cupp’s refinements did not affect the signature sloping of the fairways and greens, which characterizes this layout. A few bunkers were added to improve aesthetics and offer enhanced strategic quality for all levels of players. In 2016, as part of the course renovation, is the new ‘Quick Six”- a unique six-hole “course within the course” that offers a variety of tee box options while utilizing the existing greens.
Defined by a dramatic routing along the Lake Oconee shoreline, this Rees Jones design is a true risk/reward layout. The Oconee course offers inspiring lake views while presenting options to play shots over inlets of Lake Oconee, or carry corners of tree-lined doglegs.
A set of magnificent par 3s features elevated tee shots and numerous water hazards that are both eye-catching and penal. Interior creeks and ponds, as well as extensive bunkering, ensure a tough-but-fair challenge for every level of player.
A Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course that introduced the Golden Bear’s design work to Lake Oconee in 1992, Great Waters is a dramatic layout that offers some of the most breathtaking golf scenery in the Southeast. Consistently ranked among the Top 100 courses in the nation, Great Waters earned the distinction from LINKS Magazine as one of the “10 most significant and influential courses of the past two decades.”
At 7,073 yards, this par 72 offers players some of the most dramatic golf scenery in the Southeast, with nine holes coming into play along the shores of Lake Oconee. Great Waters begins with a parkland style front nine, through rolling hills and thick forests, with water in play on six holes. The back nine is a completely different experience, as the final eight holes are on Lake Oconee, including the par-3 14th, one of the most photographed holes in the Southeast.
