Lake Oconee, GA. (August 10, 2011) − Georgia’s Reynolds Plantation was identified as one of the “12 Best Private Golf Communities” in a recent FORBES article written by Larry Olmsted, formerly a USA Today columnist specializing in second homes.

Olmsted writes “Reynolds Plantation, Lake Oconee, GA Georgia’s second largest lake, the 20,000-acre Oconee was entirely manmade by hydroelectric efforts in the 1970s and today is a major recreational and second home destination. It is also home to one of the most impressive golf communities anywhere, Reynolds Plantation, which offers a whopping six golf courses by top designers including Jack Nicklaus, Rees Jones, Jim Engh, and Tom Fazio (with a seventh by Pete Dye in development), all of them very good, including standouts Great Water, Oconee, and Creek Club.

The community is home to Taylor Made’s The Kingdom, a unique Tour player experience offering the same high-tech diagnostic testing Taylor Made’s sponsored athletes get, complete with computerized club fitting and customization unlike any you have seen.

There is a Ritz Carlton Lodge on site, great restaurants throughout, and endless amenities from tennis to the lake itself. No private club in America has the breadth of golf that Reynolds Plantation boasts, all just an hour from Atlanta.”
