Reynolds Lake Oconee - The Landing
The Landing, designed by Bob Cupp, was the first golf course built on Lake Oconee in 1986. It was originally known as Port Armor Golf Club. The Landing offers a variety of holes with natural elevation changes, gentle mounding and strategically placed ponds and bunkers that allow a premium on shot making. A dramatic view of the lake greets players on the second hole, with holes four, five and eighteen played along the shoreline.

The course conditions were great (positive), a few great views of the lake (positive), blind uphill approach shots (negative), not cart service (negative). Now a few things: we were first group out and done inside of 3:30 (threesome), so speed wasn't an issue; greens were aerated 3 weeks ago, but still in better than average shape. Will I go back, probably, but will try the other Lake Oconee courses first.
A Lake Oconee original...often overlooked
This may be the first golf course built at Lake Oconee. With the prominence of the other Reynolds courses, this one is often overlooked. However, it is nonetheless a superb course.
The course is a good test of golf without being overly difficult. The key theme here is playable without making it easy. The natural uneven lies and the contours of the greens make for challenges that are not manufactured or contrived.
Also, the course is routed to make the most of the natural beauty of the surroundings. The best example is the par 5, 2nd hole, where the approach to the green is a bit elevated providing you a picturesque view of the lake as you make your second (and for most third) shot into the green. Then you play 4 & 5 along the shore and the course ends with 16,17, and 18 again along the shore. In between are some memorable holes as well.
The Landing is a good way to set-up a weekend of golf or perhaps downshift from the other more difficult courses at Reynolds.
Great Course in Excellent Condition
This was my first time playing The Landing at Reynolds Lake Oconee.
I loved the course. It was in great condition, especially for early February when all the bermuda grass is dormant. The tee boxes, greens and fairways are overseeded so as long as you are in the fairway, you still have excellent lie and a great opportunity to get on the greens.
The course has lots of elevation changes along with lots of slopes, undulations as well as mounds in and around the fairways. There are several holes with spectacular views of Lake Oconee. The course is great. Take the opportunity to play if you have a chance. Great course with excellent service and friendly people.
