Happy Holidays from Harbor Club on Lake Oconee

Thursday, Dec 20, 2018  |  admin  |  At Home


As this year draws to a close, we are reflecting on all our wonderful blessings and accomplishments in 2018. What a year it has been! We have so much to be thankful for here at Harbor Club — most especially for our fantastic residents and members. We are proud that our Southern Living-Inspired Community continues to be a tremendous place to live, work, and play. These are some of the highlights from this past year that make for happy holidays indeed.

Won Best Georgia Community of the Year Award

Our distinctive community has won yet another noteworthy accolade in 2018 — 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 by winning the “Best Georgia Community of the Year” award.

Featured on Golf America TV

We had the pleasure of being highlighted on Golf America TV this past summer. It was an expertly produced television program that showcased our award-winning Weiskopf-Morrish-designed golf course. It also included helpful golf tips from our head golf pro, Doug Price, and a tour of our Southern Living-Inspired model home by our friendly Sales Director, Kathy Phillips. If you missed it, you can watch the video clips or watch the whole show on our Facebook page.

Appointed Adam Smith at The Boathouse Restaurant

Known far and wide for his delicious fare, we hired Adam Smith this past spring to take the helm at The Boathouse Restaurant. When we announced this on Facebook, we had 140 positive reactions! It garnered many happy comments such as this one from Leigh Lofgren, “Just thrilled we have Adam – he is a fabulous chef and his fish tacos, spicy beans, hummus are simply wonderful. Congrats to HC and Adam, love that you are there.” Learn more about Adam and his impressive culinary background from our interview with him.

Added enhancements to the golf course

In our efforts to make our award-winning golf course even better, we added some fairly significant improvements to it this year. We always want to make our patrons golf experience the absolute best it can be. Learn more about the investments and improvements we made.

Complemented The Grove with new pickleball courts

After we installed a few pickleball courts at our Swim and Tennis Center a few years ago, the sport grew in such popularity that we decided to add some more — this time to The Grove campus. The six brand new courts, along with storage lockers and restrooms, are a perfect addition to The Grove facility.

Our Southern Living

-Inspired model home – now privately owned

Yes, our gorgeous, Southern Living-Inspired model home was purchased by a lucky family this year. Don’t worry — Patriot Builder’s is busy building additional Southern Living homes right now. If you missed out on viewing the model we built last year though, you can still take a photo tour of it. Better yet, see photos of it in all it’s festive, holiday glory.

What an amazing year we’ve had! From our family to yours, we hope that 2019 is just as fantastic. Best wishes and happy holidays to all.
