“Harbor Club was perfection for our big day. The rehearsal dinner took place at Lighthouse Pointe, and our reception took place behind the polo stables. It was magical. The beauty of this Southern jewel was more than I ever expected.”

John D.

The Harbor Club Story

When our developers first visited Harbor Club in 1991, they saw tremendous potential in its coveted lakefront setting. The challenging yet friendly design of the golf course. The small-town feel and charm of the neighborhood. And, of course, Lake Oconee, known for its breathtaking vistas and world-class fishing. It was the perfect place for those seeking access to all that Atlanta has to offer with the pace, lifestyle and amenities of a resort. Over the last 30+ years, our team has turned this vision into a reality, crafting one of the most premier golf and lake communities that Georgia has to offer.
