Reynolds Lake Oconee
Oh Reynolds, where do we start? Reynolds Lake Oconee, formerly Reynolds Plantation, is a massive gated community on Lake Oconee. Reynolds has 10,000 acres and over 300 miles of Lake Oconee shoreline. Known worldwide for their impeccable golf courses, top of the line amenities, and resort style living, it’s little wonder they are a top choice of people looking for a home or people looking to visit.
The main feature of Reynolds Lake Oconee (besides their world-renowned golf courses) is the Ritz-Carlton. The Ritz is a lakefront resort and spa with 251 rooms and suites, Lakeside Cottages, 19,000 square-feet of meeting space, and a 26,000 square-foot, full service spa and fitness center. Guests have their choice of 5 different golf courses – The Landing, The Plantation, The National, The Oconee, and Great Waters. Each golf course has been carefully constructed by the best known course architects, like Rees Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, and Bob Cupp. The Ritz-Carlton was featured in Travel + Leisure 500 in 2015 and has received several other awards for their spa. The Oconee and Great Waters golf courses were just listed in the top 100 public courses in Golfweek Magazine.
Reynolds Lake Oconee has the most amenities of all the gated communities in the area, but make no mistake, those lavish amenities will cost you. Starting with The Lake Club, a giant 38,000 sq-ft building featuring a café, indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, a tennis center, and an exercise studio. The tennis center has 4 Har-Tru Hydro courts and 4 traditional clay courts. In 2009 the Tennis Center won the award for being the best tennis center in the United States by USTA. The Lake Club offers yoga, Pilates, and other exercise classes as well as personal training. If you want to expand your workout to the outdoors there are over 21 miles of walking and biking trails. There are several different marinas located all around Reynolds Lake Oconee – Plantation, Great Waters, Landing, and Lake Club.
You won’t have to worry about being hungry while living in Reynolds. There are 9 different restaurants within the community. The National Tavern and The Creek Club are both located in Reynolds Lake Oconee. The Ritz-Carlton has Georgia’s Bistro, Linger Longer Steakhouse, Gaby’s by the Lake, and Chiminea Dining.
