With April not that far away, The Masters golf tournament is fast approaching. Whether you are lucky enough to experience it in person, or on TV from the comfort of your easy chair, it’s an inspiring event that puts you in the mood to play great golf.
With so many people in Augusta during Masters week though, the golf courses in that area will be swamped, not to mention carry a premium price tag. A better option is to escape the majority of those crowds and come to Lake Oconee, Georgia’s second largest lake. There you’ll find Harbor Club on Lake Oconee golf course, which is conveniently located halfway between Augusta and Atlanta, just a few miles off of Interstate 20.
Harbor Club’s course is consistently one of the places to play golf during The Masters. It’s no surprise, considering the ties to one of its designers, Tom Weiskopf. He finished second at the Masters on four different occasions. But, both he and Jay Moorish came up with a winner of a golf course design at Harbor Club. It offers some of the best playing conditions on the lake, including:
- An appealing pair of short, driveable risk-reward par 4’s.
- Six holes set beautifully along the shore of Lake Oconee.
- A 7,048-yard layout that skirts four creeks.
And speaking of The Masters, Harbor Club’s 17th hole was designed to emulate the infamous 12th hole at Augusta National. It has similar bunker placements, water hazard, and bean-shaped green. This hole is a challenging, yet fun par three that requires a tee shot over the lake.
What’s more are the impressive accolades that Harbor Club continues to accumulate, including these two recent distinctions:
- #3 on Golfweek’s 2016 State-by-State Best Courses You Can Play in Georgia.
- #4 on Golf Magazine’s Best Courses You Can Play in Georgia, 2016-2017.
