Jumps Two Spots on Golfweek Magazine’s Annual Ranking for Best Georgia Courses
Harbor Club, a 1,600-acre resort community located on the shores of Lake Oconee, has again been recognized among the “Best Courses You Can Play” in Georgia, according to Golfweek Magazine’s recently released annual ranking.
Harbor Club’s sweeping lakefront design was the first offering on the east coast from the esteemed architectural partnership of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish back in 1991. The course touches the shoreline of Lake Oconee, Georgia’s second largest lake, six different times, while also skirting four creeks and a number of interior ponds.
The current Golfweek ranking has Harbor Club sharing “Best You Can Play” honors with such other elite Georgia courses as Sea Island Golf Club and The Legends Club at Chateau Elan in Braselton.
Golfweek’s eclectic ranking panel consists of 675 voters from seven countries. They rely on 10 criteria to rate a golf course, including overall land plan, variety and memorability of golf holes, conditioning and ecology, and the “Walk in the park test”, which rates the sense of the course as worthy of spending four hours on it.
Harbor Club offers an inviting Stay and Play Package in a collection of 3-bedroom cottages and townhomes. Accommodations are located just minutes from the golf course and include a fully equipped kitchen, dining and living area, and 2.5 baths.
Additional amenities at Harbor Club include an expansive outdoor Swim and Tennis facility with junior Olympic swimming pool and double lighted tennis courts. The 15,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, designed by award-winning Southern Living architect Stephen Fuller, offers full-service dining, a fully stocked golf shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms and a fitness center.
