The Landing pioneered the golf industry on Lake Oconee when the Bob Cupp design opened in 1986 (originally as Port Armor Golf Club), the first course along the lake. Reynolds Lake Oconee introduced the legendary Jack Nicklaus to the golf community with Great Waters, which debuted in 1992 – and is to undergo a complete renovation, starting in June and to be completed in the fall of 2019. The Oconee Course is an idyllic Georgia sanctuary, with designer Rees Jones providing a pure, undisturbed setting for an authentic golf experience since 2002.
Overall, Reynolds Lake Oconee features six diverse golf course designs and is also home to The Reynolds Kingdom of Golf presented by TaylorMade – one of the only facilities in the country where recreational golfers can receive professional instruction, be fit for new equipment in the same elite environment used by Tour professionals, and have their equipment built same-day, on the spot.
Besides golf, 19,000 acres of water on Lake Oconee provide some of the state's best fishing, along with swimming, boating, water skiing and four full-service marinas. Other activities include the Lake Club Wellness Center, Sandy Creek Sporting Grounds and Tennis Center, making Reynolds Lake Oconee a popular vacation destination.
