Challenging yet forgiving – these are two words that would best describe The Plantation Course at the Reynolds Plantation in Georgia. It is a great eighteen-hole regulation course featuring 6,698 yards of golf for a par of 72. Bob Cupp was the mastermind behind this wonderful course that started giving golfers pure golfing treat in 1987. Golf vacations spent here are made of fun and challenging rounds of golf.
The Plantation Course has a course rating of 70.2 and a slope rating of 125. According to Charley Stine of GolfWeek, “the hills are natural to the terrain, but the funny lies and funny bounces result from the integrity of shape during construction”. The bent grass greens are gently contoured and the Bermuda grass fairways are a little hilly and are always flawlessly maintained. It was ranked among the “Ten Best New Courses” by Golf Magazine in 2004, “Best Places to Play” by Golf Digest in 2006, and “America’s Top Golf Courses” by the Zagat Survey. With the strategic bunkers and water hazards, a golf trip here will make require that the golfers bring their “A” game if they want to score low.
The Plantation Course set the stage of Reynolds Plantation to become the golfer’s mecca, not to mention the great service of the course’s friendly staff under the management of Bryan Evans as the course’s General Manager. The natural beauty of the land, the variety in length and the size of the greens make it an ideal golf vacation destination.
