The Oconee Course, designed by Rees Jones, is a strikingly beautiful risk/reward layout aptly named for the 19,000-acre lake that serves as the community’s centerpiece. It challenges golfers with distracting views and tempts them to shorten holes by taking more direct routes over watery inlets. First time visitors to The Oconee are struck by its rural, natural atmosphere and the beauty of the lake that frames it. Key to the popularity of this course is the challenge for all levels of play, five sets of tees offer options for every type of golfer. The Oconee is host to The Kingdom at Reynolds Lake Oconee and is within walking distance from The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee.
