Annual Meeting of American Society of Golf Course Architects Brings Together Reynolds Plantation’s Legendary Designers

(Greensboro, Georgia) – Four of the legendary golf course architects whose imprint on Reynolds Plantation has been both historic and monumental were in attendance last week at the 67th annual American Society of Golf Course Architects conference, held at The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation.

Bob Cupp – who created the first golf course on Lake Oconee in 1986 (now called The Landing) as well as the Plantation Course (the first at Reynolds Plantation) – joined Tom Fazio (National Course) and Jim Engh (The Creek Club) as the ASGCA presented Rees Jones (designer of the Oconee Course) with its highest honor, the Donald Ross Award.

The event marked the first time these golf course architects have been together on the Lake Oconee property, with Jack Nicklaus (who designed the Great Waters Course) represented by Nicklaus Designs’ Chris Cochran, who was involved in the most recent renovation of Great Waters.

Reynolds Plantation—the lakefront golf resort community located between Atlanta and Augusta, Georgia—has long been known as the South’s most complete and exciting golf experience, featuring six outstanding courses (117 holes) and the ultimate in high-tech instruction and club fitting at The Kingdom at Reynolds Plantation.

“Golf is the cornerstone of the Reynolds Plantation lifestyle,” said Mark Lammi, Vice President of Golf Operations for Reynolds Plantation. “The golf courses that each of these architects gave us are world-class by themselves, but bring them together, as we are uniquely able to do, and our members and guests of Reynolds Plantation have a golf experience without comparison.”
