Creek Club at Reynolds Plantation Open for Members
The fifth course at Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Ga., officially debuted June 1, welcoming members and their guests to the Jim Engh design.
The Creek Club at Reynolds Plantation is a contemporary layout with features like signature rolling bunkers, Zoysia grass fairways and tributaries of Richland Creek, whose waters come into play on 14 holes. These holes demand forced carries on eight holes, either off the tee or from the fairway. The four sets of tees can alter holes by as much as 160 yards, ensuring a tough but fair challenge for everyone on this 7,079-yard, par-72 layout.
The unique 18th hole offers three separate greens, all next to a new clubhouse, which will contain a "crow's nest" restaurant. For now, players visit the temporary pro shop in the rustic Creek Club, until the clubhouse opens in mid-2007.
"The visual aspects of the golf course and the use of this unique piece of property will be regarded as a remarkable golf course now and in the future," Bob Mauragas, vice president of golf operations at Reynolds Plantation. "We will exceed our members' expectations every time, whether with the Zoysia grass that allows the ball to sit up nicely - and which provides a great contrast on the fairways - or with the impeccable service that awaits our members in the clubhouse."
