Lake Oconee hosted “Big Break Invitational”

Lake Oconee  hosted  “Big Break Invitational” that  aired on the golf channel!  The tournament was held at Great Waters September 30 through Oct 3.


20 men and 20 women who were all former Big Break Competitors competed in the inaugural Big Break Invitational at Reynolds Plantation. The Big Break Invitational is a four-round tournament held at the golf course in Great Waters. The six men and six women who moved on to Friday’s final round will be in the money.

It was one of  the most exciting tournaments with all the players competing for a $300,000 purse, with $100,000 going to the champion!


We were lucky enough to see one of the competitors, Jerry Rice, from Big Break NFL Puerto Rico, playing golf at Great Waters.  Many of our friends were out and about watching the tournament, both on the course itself and by watching from their boats!
