Rating 72.2

The Preserve, designed by Bob Cupp and opened in 1988, is the original golf course built at Reynolds Lake Oconee and offers a host of subtle challenges in the form of swales, depressions, undulations, fall-away slopes and false fronts. The layout takes full advantage of the natural, rolling topography with the end result being an extremely playable golf course for low handicappers and beginners. The Preserve is also home to "The Quick Six," a six-hole loop of a course within a course where each hole is less than 130 yards and can be played in about an hour.

A solid fourth option at Reynolds Plantation

With six strong golf courses, it's easy for a course to get lost in the shuffle at Reynolds Plantation. That's sort of what happens at the Plantation course. It doesn't have as many lake holes as Great Waters and the Oconee course. It's not as highly regarded as the 27-hole National course by Tom Fazio, either.
But, when comparing it to most courses in most places, the Plantation is quite good.
Some nice elevated tee shots keep it fun and playable. The trees lining the fairways never feel like they're crowding the tee shots, yet you can still finding yourself fishing your ball out of them if you're not swinging well. Overall, a solid - not spectacular - choice.

Outstanding course in a beautiful setting

The Plantation Course at Reynolds Plantation was my first private members course. I was astounded with every aspect of Reynolds Plantation from the service and amenities to the course conditions. The courses are well-maintained and in excellent condition. A few of the courses offer challenging lakeside shots and others require forced carries or conservative club selection based on power.

I would recommend the Plantation Course to anyone.
