Golf courses on Lake Oconee are among some of the best in the South. Located just an hour outside of Atlanta, Lake Oconee is easily accessible and attracts avid golfers from all over the country. In fact, five of the top 10 golf courses in Georgia are located in Greensboro, according to golf.com. The courses in Greene County are as perfectly green as the name of the county in which they reside and challenge you to bring your ‘A’ game!
Reynolds Lake Oconee provides guests with the ultimate golf experience. Home to six unique golf courses, there is sure to be a course to fit every player’s preference. The Landing was Greensboro’s first golf course, and it set the stage for this, now, premier golf destination. Great Waters, The Preserve, Creek Club, The National and The Oconee match their predecessor, The Landing, in terms of scenery and difficulty. These courses promise rolling green hills, challenging bunkers, and pristine water features. To truly take your game to the next level, visit Reynolds Kingdom of Golf presented by TaylorMade. This is one of only two such facilities in the country.
Harbor Club is the only public golf course in Greene County and can surely hold its own in terms of accolades, being named “One of the Top Golf Course Communities Around the World” by Links Magazine. The Harbor Club Course has been a staple in Greensboro since 1991.
The courses in Greensboro have been designed by premier golf course architects Tom Weiskopf, Jack Nicklaus, Bob Cupp, and many more. These experts designed Greensboro’s courses with the natural topography of Lake Oconee in mind. Fairways wind around the lake’s shoreline and naturally wooded areas line the immaculate greens.
If you’re looking for a course that is both visually appealing and tests your skills, there is simply no better place than Greensboro, Georgia. There is definitely something in the water at Lake Oconee making it one of the best golf destinations in the South…we just hope your golf ball isn’t that ‘something in the water.’
