Fun Outdoor Activities at Harbor Club

Thursday, Aug 30, 2018  |  admin  |  Latest News


At Harbor Club on Lake Oconee, you’ll never be at a loss to find something to do, especially if you want to head outside. If you want to get a great workout, have fun with friends and family, or just relax, our highly acclaimed, Southern Living Inspired Community has something for everyone.

Here’s a big list of activities you can take advantage of:

Dine “al fresco”

There are so many great spots for a picnic at Harbor Club. A few good options include the Lighthouse Pavilion, the Pergola and Fire Pit at Osprey Circle, the Big Timber Lodge Playground, the Sanctuary Pond, or enjoy the view of Lake Oconee from the grand lawn in

front of The Boathouse. Come to The Boathouse Restaurant and have a delicious meal on the deck overlooking the lake and marina.

Hit some balls

Our award-winning, Weiskopf-Morrish designed course is one of the best in the state of Georgia. Book a tee time or grab a bucket of balls to hit on the driving range. If golf isn’t your thing, play a round or two of tennis or pickleball, or take a mallet to some croquet balls on the lawn in front of The Clubhouse. If throwing is more your jam, give bocce ball a try at The Boathouse or play a game of catch, frisbee, or tag football on our sports field at The Grove.

Go for a swim

When it comes to a refreshing dip, you’ve got options at Harbor Club. Of course, there is access to Lake Oconee, Georgia’s second largest lake, via The Boathouse. But if you are more of a pool person, we’ve got a crystal clear, junior Olympic-sized option for you to enjoy.

Attend an outdoor concert

Our free, outdoor summer concert series is in full swing. We’ve had plenty of excellent entertainment so far, with more to come. Find all the details on the events section of our Facebook page. Be sure to “Like” our page on Facebook too so that you don’t miss out on upcoming shows and other activities.

Enjoy motorsports on the lake

Whether you like to go fast or slow, you’ve got options for motoring around the lake. Rent a motorboat, pontoon boat, or jet ski. Of course, there is also water skiing, wake surfing, wakeboarding, tubing, cruising, or just hanging out at the sandbar and swimming.

Enjoy NON-motorized water sports on the lake

Prefer to use your own power for your watercraft? Enjoy the quiet solitude of the lake with stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, row-boating, or a tranquil ride in a canoe.

Go for a hike, run, or walk

Whether you’re into hiking, running, or a gentle stroll, there are plenty of places to get your steps at Harbor Club. Head to The Grove to hit the hiking trails. The Fit-Trail® is an excellent option since it has ten fitness stations for stretching, bending and strength training. For something more structured, use the 1/4-mile track. For a simple walk, we have several miles of well-maintained roads in our gated, secure community on which to amble. The roads are perfect for biking too.

Green up your thumb

Our Victory Garden is an ideal spot to augment your outdoor exercise regiment. Planting, tending, weeding, and (best of all) harvesting are all very rewarding activities. Even better, these are all easily accessible with the raised beds of our community garden.

Take Fido to the dog park

Our dog park is made up of two fenced-in sections—one designated for large breeds and the other for smaller pups. It’s a fantastic place for both the dogs and their owners to socialize and get some exercise together. It’s a safe, comfortable, outdoor environment for all.

Throw a line in the water

Fishing on Lake Oconee is very popular. The lake is renown for its Bass and Crappie, but did you know that our community has several large ponds that are stocked with fish too? Whether you opt for the lake or a pond, you’re bound to go home with a prize fish, or at least some great tales to tell.


You don’t necessarily have to be active to enjoy the outdoors. Watch the birds from your deck, meditate while listening to the sounds of nature, read a book on your porch, or take a quick nap in the warmth of the sun.

No matter what you end up doing (or not doing) you’ll have a great time in the beautiful outdoors of Harbor Club. Come experience all the fun things we mentioned above and more. Plan your visit today.
