This may be the first golf course built at Lake Oconee. With the prominence of the other Reynolds courses, this one is often overlooked. However, it is nonetheless a superb course.
The course is a good test of golf without being overly difficult. The key theme here is playable without making it easy. The natural uneven lies and the contours of the greens make for challenges that are not manufactured or contrived.
Also, the course is routed to make the most of the natural beauty of the surroundings. The best example is the par 5, 2nd hole, where the approach to the green is a bit elevated providing you a picturesque view of the lake as you make your second (and for most third) shot into the green. Then you play 4 & 5 along the shore and the course ends with 16,17, and 18 again along the shore. In between are some memorable holes as well.
The Landing is a good way to set-up a weekend of golf or perhaps downshift from the other more difficult courses at Reynolds.
