Georgia's Harbor Club earns recognition from Golfweek Magazine

GREENSBORO, Ga. -- Harbor Club, a 1,600-acre resort community located on the shores of Lake Oconee, has been recognized among the "Best Courses You Can Play" in Georgia, according to Golfweek Magazine's recently released annual ranking.

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.

"It's a real 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."

The current Golfweek ranking has Harbor Club sharing "Best You Can Play" honors with such other elite Georgia golf courses as Sea Island Golf Club and The Georgia Club near Athens.

Golfweek magazine annually releases a series of golf course rankings, including Best Classic Course, Best Modern Course and Best Resort Course. In compiling these lists, Golfweek has distinguished itself from other publications in terms of the depth of its rating criteria, the integrity of the process and the extent to which it has developed a community of raters through educational workshops and national meetings.

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.

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, designed by award-winning Southern Living architect Stephen Fuller, offers full-service dining, a fully stocked golf shop, men's and women's locker rooms and a fitness center.

Harbor Club is managed by Atlanta-based Affiniti Golf Partners, one of the fastest growing golf management companies in the country.
