One of a pair of 18-hole Arthur Hill-designed layouts at the Golf Club of Georgia, the Lakeside course opened in 1991 with several holes on the back nine laid out alongside the sparkling waters of Lake Windward.
Designed by Ken Dye, Cobblestone Golf Course lies on the shores of Lake Acworth and the layout (once used as a qualifier for the PGA Tour’s now defunct Bellsouth Classic) underwent an extensive upgrade in 2010.

Created for Sea Island heir Bill Jones by Tom Fazio, who received a helping hand from former R&A Secretary, Sir Michael Bonallack, Frederica is a big golf course with a capital B.
Six of the tree-lined fairways touch the shoreline of scenic Lake Oconee on Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish's 1991 design at the Harbor Club. The all-water carry par three 17th is rated one of the best short holes in the state.
Tom Fazio’s National was the fourth 18-hole layout to open at Reynolds Lake Oconee in 1997. Fazio returned to add a third nine (named Cove) in 2000, but it’s the original Ridge and Bluff loops that form the premier 18-hole course.
Jack Nicklaus designed the course at the Country Club of the South, where golfers first teed up on the new layout in 1987. It’s been recently renovated, with work carried out on tee boxes, fairways and practice facilities.
The semi-private layout at Achasta Golf Club is a modern Jack Nicklaus Signature Course that brings the Chestatee River into play on several occasions, most notably on the par three 5th hole which is set out on a river island.

The Landing course was the first 18-hole layout to appear at Reynolds Lake Oconee in 1986. Designed by Bob Cupp, it actually started out as the Port Amor Country Club before it was acquired by the resort.
