The list of Top 100 resort courses is published in Golfweek’s annual edition of the “Ultimate Guide To Golf Course Living And Great Escapes” and is posted on

Home to one of the most elite collections of golf courses in the United States, Reynolds Plantation has earned numerous honors – not only for the Oconee Course, but for Great Waters (the venue for this year’s inaugural Big Break Invitational), the National Course, The Landing, Plantation and members-only Creek Club design. Together the Lake Oconee gems continue to enrich the reputation of Reynolds Plantation as one of the premier golf communities, as well as golf destinations in the game.
