The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee


If you want a relaxing getaway by excellent golf courses, consider this Ritz-Carlton in Greensboro, Georgia. The property is convenient to a whopping 99 holes of golf, carefully designed by renowned architects Rees Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Bob Cupp and Tom Fazio. While you play, you'll be treated to some spectacular views of the nearby Lake Oconee. But enough about golf: The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee can also brag about more than 250 gorgeous guest rooms with cushy featherbeds, marble trim bathrooms and stately cherrywood and mahogany furniture. During your stay here, you'll have your choice of five restaurants — including the extra delicious fare served at the Linger Longer Steakhouse. And of course there's a spa, where recent visitors heap praise on the massages and facials. But though they have plenty of good things to say about the facilities at The Ritz-Carlton, travelers insist that it was the hotel's fantastic customer service that made their stays truly memorable. You'll find Greensboro about 70 miles east of Atlanta.
