Where Golf Meets The Great Outdoors
Reynolds, best known for its golf, provides travelers with a six-pack of courses to choose from. In 2017, Reynolds introduced The Sandy Creek Sporting Grounds to the resort property. The highlight of the Sporting Grounds is its 20-station clays course. This is set up similar to a golf course.
There are plenty of off-course activities for golfers to engage in. The resort weaves in and around Lake Oconee where water-sport activities are endless. Reynolds is the perfect vacation spot for the entire family or the buddies trip you’ve been longing for.
A Southern Six-Pack of Golf
- The Landing – The first course built on Lake Oconee by Bob Cupp. This course started it all for the area to become a ‘must golf’ destination.
- Great Waters – The name says it all. This Jack Nicklaus design featuring Lake Oconee is a bucket-list course for the avid golfer.
- The National – 27 holes of elevated fun, a great hangout spot for buddies trips. A Tom Fazio design that weaves through the forests.
- The Preserve – Playability meets fun at The Preserve, which features a new Quick Six “course within the course”.
- The Oconee – This course ranks right up there with Great Waters, a risk/reward layout by Rees Jones.
- The Creek Club – A Jim Engh design for Platinum members only that takes advantage of the natural elements of the region.
One of the unique amenities here is the Reynolds Kingdom of Golf presented by TaylorMade. “The Kingdom” is a TaylorMade Club Fitting and Instruction center located right on the property. It’s one of only two such facilities in the entire country, which provides club members and guests with a one of a kind fitting and learning experience.
Wine and Dine
With the laidback lifestyle, the best “chill” spot on property is The National Tavern, located right next to the golf course. It’s the perfect spot to grab a quick cold one and a bite to eat before heading to the putting green a few steps away.
If you’re considering a buddies trip to Reynolds, you can’t go wrong staying in The National Golf Village. If good ole Southern cooking is what you’re looking for then Sunday brunch at Eighty 8 Kitchen + Cocktails is a MUST on your to-do list, located at The Preserve.
If you’re looking to soak up a few local hot-spots, then the Silver Moon on Monday night is your dive spot for live music and local food. Get there early and soak up the great local atmosphere!
If it’s the local brews that you would rather soak up then it’s Oconee Brewing Company in Downtown Greensboro, about a 15-minute drive. It’s a community favorite, which offers tours and hosts food truck events almost every weekend.
Great Waters To Become Even….Greater?
All courses at Reynolds are great but The Great Waters course has long been considered the gem of Reynolds Lake Oconee. With 9 out of the last 10 holes draped along the lake, it’s hard to believe this course (along with the views) can get any better but that’s exactly what they plan on doing. Jack (Nicklaus) is back with plans for a total restoration project on his original design of Great Waters from 1992. Restoration is set to begin for June 2018 and completed during the Fall of 2019.
Getting Your Sticks Back
The dreaded day has come, it’s time to pack up your sticks to go home. On the bright side though, at least you’re not having to drag them through the crowded airport or attempt to jam them into the car for the long trek home.
When you finish your last round, you can ship directly from the course back to your residence, business or country club. All of the golf shops are equipped with shipping supplies to help assist you with returning your clubs back home.
Once you have finished packing up your sticks you will need to leave them at the location you selected to ship them back from. We recommend having your sticks fully packed, labeled and at the correct pickup location by 9 am on your scheduled pickup date.
