The spacious new National Club Cottages, adjacent to the Tom Fazio-designed National Course at Reynolds Lake Oconee, are ready and waiting for golf groups this fall at the Southeast’s premier golf destination.
Part of the recently completed National Village, which includes the award-winning National Tavern, the eight Club Cottages overlook the short-game practice facility at the National Course, one of five layouts available to Reynolds Lake Oconee guests.
Designed to comfortably accommodate eight, each Club Cottage features four bedrooms, 4½ baths, and a full kitchen, as well as two open living spaces and an expansive porch area.
The interiors of the National Club Cottages have a casual yet sophisticated feel, with neutral color palettes, natural woods, and modern touches throughout. Ideal as a relaxing getaway for a golf foursome, the National Club Cottages offer all the comforts of home for a family vacation, as well.
“I have had the good fortune of staying in some of the best golf cottages in the country and the new National Club Cottages rank up there with the best. The ability to have a world class practice facility, lighted putting green and the National Tavern all within a short walk completes the ultimate golf experience.” said Mark Lammi, Vice President, Golf Operations for Reynolds Lake Oconee.
