Aren’t you excited? The holidays are upon us! It’s such a joyful time of year for family and friends to get together to enjoy the season. But with that excitement also comes a lot of planning -- planning around menus, activities, and how best to burn off all those extra (delicious) goodies that we are preparing to consume.
It’s a time when we count our many blessings, but certainly not our calories as we feast on delicious meats, stuffing, butter-laden sides, and lots of pumpkin pie. So how does one keep their out-of-town friends and family happily occupied while also burning off second helpings of dessert? With a fantastic game of golf, no doubt! It’s hard to say “no” to playing a round or two on our award-winning golf course located on beautiful Lake Oconee. Here’s why:
The weather is great
The last few Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays have been quite mild here at Harbor Club. From what we’re hearing, we’ll be enjoying yet another balmy winter. Take advantage of our beautiful Georgia weather. Most of the time, all you’ll need to stay warm on the golf course is a few light layers. So don’t keep family cooped up in the house the whole time. Get outside and enjoy the fresh air, the bright sunshine, and the stunning views of Lake Oconee with your family and friends. Playing golf is a perfect way to absorb much-needed Vitamin D.
It’s a fun way to exercise
Playing golf is a great way to get some exercise, without feeling like you’re getting exercise. It gets the blood pumping in all sorts of ways. You’re walking, bending, reaching, stretching, and constantly swinging a club. And we bet you laugh quite a bit too. That’s sure to burn some extra calories, right? So, get off the couch, round up the troops, and book a tee time. Besides, playing a few rounds will put your mind at ease about partaking of seconds (or even thirds) during your holiday parties and feasts. After all, you do have much thankful for.
No one can say they are bored
Teens, in particular, may feel like “there’s nothing to do around here.” Not so! Playing golf is an excellent way to gather everyone together for a fun day outside. It’s a unique way to make special memories during the holidays -- especially if Uncle Ned gets a hole-in-one. Not only can you get in some good family time on our golf course, but there are also other fun activities to take advantage of too. Go for a hike on the trails at The Grove. Go fishing on Lake Oconee or one of our many stocked ponds throughout the community. Take the dogs to the dog park. Play tennis or pickleball. There is much fun to be had at Harbor Club.
Speaking of which, we have one other festive activity for you. Take your family and friends on a special tour of our Southern Living inspired model home! Starting November 21, the model will be decked out in grand style for the holidays. The beautiful decor is sure to put everyone in a merry state of mind. Public tours continue on weekends in November and December. Be sure to check it out.
So, whether we see you out on the golf course, at The Grove, or at our Southern Living model home, we want to wish you and yours a very happy holiday season full of fun, love, and cheer. (PS - Don’t forget to book your golf tee times in advance to get the best time slots during the holidays!)
