With six spectacular designs by five legendary architects, each of our courses provides club members, residents and guests a unique and memorable experience. Bob Cupp’s trailblazing efforts of The Landing and The Preserve courses helped launch Lake Oconee as a true golf destination. Jack Nicklaus’ Great Waters course offers one of the most stunning finishes in the game with a back nine skirting the lake on nearly every hole. Tom Fazio’s 27-hole National course makes perfect use of the land as it gracefully winds along rolling terrain. The remarkable resort experience at The Oconee provides a stunning sequence of finishing holes in typical Rees Jones fashion, while Jim Engh’s Scottish-inspired Creek Club gave the community a private club retreat for the members. Sure, there are other places that have one or two notable golf courses, but beyond Reynolds, few communities can offer a collection of six truly distinctive golf experiences all in one location.
Recently renovated, the 6,698-yard, par-72 Preserve course at Reynolds Lake Oconee was designed originally by noted architect Bob Cupp, along with U.S. Open Champions Fuzzy Zoeller and Hubert Green. The Preserve course takes advantage of the natural rolling topography with the end result being an immensely playable course, with back tees challenging enough for low handicappers and forward tees forgiving enough for beginners. Recently added to The Preserve course is the new Quick Six course, a fun and unique six hole "course within the course."
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.”
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.
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.
Reserved for Creek Club club member play, the newest course at Reynolds Lake Oconee captures the natural essence of the undulating terrain unique to the Lake Oconee region. Golf course architect Jim Engh utilized the innate detail of the property, which lends itself to spectacular viewing corridors from endless angles.
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.
