We are incredibly proud to announce that our distinctive community has won yet another noteworthy accolade -- one that adds to our ever-growing list of awards. You may recall that last year, Real Estate Scorecard, the industry leader of online real estate reviews, announced that Harbor Club won the "Best Lake Community of the Year" award. This year, we've improved upon that and have won the "Best Georgia Community of the Year" award!
Here are the factors that helped us gain the top spot:
With almost 90% full-time residents, Harbor Club is known for its authentic neighborhood feel. It's also one of the reasons why ours was chosen as a Southern Living Inspired Community. We take great pride in fostering fun gatherings, interactions, and celebrations together. We are on the opposite side of the spectrum from other combo-vacation resort communities. Here, the majority of our residents happily work, live, and play here year-round. So don't be surprised to see people smile and wave to you as your drive through the community.
We have the advantage of being located in Greensboro, Georgia, just an hour east of the vibrant city of Atlanta, and 40 minutes south of the popular college town of Athens. Here, we are fortunate in that we experience four distinct seasons, yet sit just below the snow line and a safe distance from coastal hurricanes. Located alongside the historic Antebellum Trail, we enjoy a countryside lifestyle, yet still have tons of shopping, restaurants, and other excellent conveniences nearby.
Our community is situated right on Georgia's second largest lake, Lake Oconee. The mild winters and hot summers offer year-round boating and watersports, giving every resident of Harbor Club the ability to enjoy "lake life" whenever they wish. During the summer months, there is free live music on the front lawn of our Boathouse Marina and Restaurant (Lake Oconee's only on-water boat-friendly restaurant.) The Marina also provides fuel, boat rentals, boat ramps, dry dock storage, and a convenience store. Whether you already own a boat or not, you'll have access to everything you need to enjoy an amazing day on the lake.
Our excellent weather also allows for year-round play on our lakefront, highly award-winning golf course. Touching the shoreline of Lake Oconee on six different holes, our Weiskopf-Morrish designed course, with multiple Risk Reward holes, is challenging yet fun for players of all skill levels. Not a fan of golf? That's ok -- you're not forced to join the golf club here (although most do because it’s so affordable.)
In addition to The Boathouse, we also have The Grove, which is our newest fitness and recreational amenity. The fitness facility includes a 2000 square-foot, well-equipped fitness center, with room for multiple scheduled classes, such as Zumba, barre, and yoga. The Grove campus also offers hiking trails, dog parks, a community Victory garden, sports field, quarter-mile track, and more. Other amenities at Harbor Club include a junior-size Olympic pool, tennis, and pickleball courts. We also have a 15,000 square foot Clubhouse with a restaurant that overlooks the 18th green and croquet lawn. The Clubhouse Restaurant is famous for our trivia nights, holiday parties, happy hours, live music, themed dinner events, seminars, luncheons, and much more.
