Great Waters, the highly-acclaimed Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Reynolds Lake Oconee, is currently undergoing a complete restoration that involves personal input from Mr. Nicklaus and oversight from his award-winning Nicklaus Design Team.  Development underway with an expected reopening in Fall 2019.

“The first time I went to Reynolds, I knew we had the potential to have a great golf course,” says Nicklaus.  “I think we found it then, and now more than a quarter of a century later, a wonderful golf experience remains but is in need of a little updating.  It’s one of the really great pieces of property with which I have ever had the experience to work.”

Great Waters, the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-signature design, winds through densely wooded evergreen corridors only to open up to nine holes featuring the blue waters of Lake Oconee as the rough. Named as one of the best courses in Georgia, second only to Augusta National, Great Waters proves to be one of the most aesthetically inspiring golf courses in the continental United States.
