Secures Spot on Golfweek Magazine’s Annual Ranking for Best Georgia Courses

Greensboro, Ga. (March 24, 2015) – Harbor Club, a 1,000-acre resort community located on the shores of Lake Oconee, has jumped up nine spots from last year to gain the #4 ranking among the “Best Courses You Can Play” in Georgia, according to Golfweek Magazine’s recently released annual ranking.

The lofty recognition comes on the heels of a two-year enhancement program at Harbor Club that touched every aspect of the golf course, including expanded turf conditioning practices, an upgraded irrigation system, extensive planting of flowering shrubs and trees, underbrush removal to open up view corridors and new cart paths and sand bunkers in certain places. 

Harbor Club’s sweeping lakefront design was the first offering on the east coast from the esteemed architectural partnership of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish back in 1991. The course touches the shoreline of Lake Oconee, Georgia’s second largest lake, six different times, while also skirting four creeks and a number of interior ponds.

Golfweek’s eclectic ranking panel consists of 675 voters from seven countries. They rely on 10 criteria to rate a golf course, including overall land plan, variety and memorability of golf holes, conditioning and ecology, and the “Walk in the park test”, which rates the sense of the course as worthy of spending four hours on it.

“It is certainly an honor to learn that the Golfweek ranking panelists share our exuberance for this remarkable golf course,” says Harbor Club general manager, Brandon Matney. “This recognition will certainly instill a sense of pride in the club members and daily guests who play on a regular basis.”

Harbor Club offers an inviting Stay and Play Package in a collection of 3-bedroom cottages and townhomes. Accommodations are located just minutes from the golf course and include a fully equipped kitchen, dining and living area, and 2.5 baths.

Additional amenities at Harbor Club include an expansive outdoor Swim and Tennis facility with junior Olympic swimming pool and double lighted tennis courts. The 15,000 sq. ft. clubhouse offers full-service dining, a fully stocked golf shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms and a fitness center.
