We all know how tough it is to get to the top of a company or corporation. So with that in mind, the inaugural Reynolds Cup presented by National Car Rental, is a golf tournament for corporate executives who thrive on the competition and camaraderie, each of which are the spirit of the game. The tournament will be Sept. 10-12 at Reynolds Lake Oconee, the award-winning golf community and destination resort between Atlanta and Augusta.
Combining the Rees Jones-designed Oconee course with accommodations at The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee, guarantees the Reynolds Cup presented by National Car Rental will be a one-of-a-kind experience.
Competitors and guests will be treated to three days of complete access to the amenities at Reynolds Lake Oconee, which residents and visitors alike have enjoyed for 30 years.
The Reynolds Cup presented by National Car Rental will match two-person teams from companies throughout the country to compete over 36 holes on The Oconee course in a Stableford Best Ball format.
“Golf is the game of business,” said Rob Connors, vice president of brand marketing for National. “We’re thrilled to sponsor the Reynolds Cup, which brings together corporate leaders from industries across the country to enjoy the game in such a beautiful setting.”
Home to one of the more diverse collections of elite courses in the United States, Reynolds Lake Oconee features six golf courses, a number of lodging and dining options, and a lakefront location that has established it as one of the nation’s premier golf and lakefront destinations and communities.
Reynolds Lake Oconee is also home to The Reynolds Kingdom of Golf presented by TaylorMade, one of the only facilities in the country where recreational golfers can receive professional instruction, be fit for new equipment in the same elite environment used by Tour professionals, and have their equipment built during their stay.
Reynolds Cup activities begin Sept. 10 with an afternoon practice round on The Oconee course, followed that evening by the official Reynolds Cup Welcome & Pairings Party at the National Tavern, featuring live entertainment and special guests.
On Sept. 11, tee times for the first round of the tournament begin at 8 a.m. Free time follows golf, with a special dinner party at Reynolds Kingdom of Golf presented by TaylorMade that evening.
On Sept. 12, the final round begins at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start – a fitting prelude to sporting clays activities in the afternoon at the new Sandy Creek Sporting Grounds. Cocktails and the awards dinner is Wednesday evening at the Sandy Creek Barn, featuring special guests.
Registration fee is $3,500 per team, which includes three nights and two rooms at The Ritz-Carlton, plus all golf and Reynolds Cup functions. Team registration will open soon and can be found at www.reynoldslakeoconee.com/Reynolds-Cup. Additional non-golfer guest packages are available, which include special events and a welcome gift.
Besides golf, 19,000 acres of water on Lake Oconee provide some of the state’s best fishing, along with swimming, boating, water skiing and four full-service marinas. Other activities include the Lake Club Wellness Center, Sandy Creek Sporting Grounds and Tennis Center. Guests can relax by the pools, play a few sets of tennis on either soft or hard courts, take an aerobics class, work out, or simply soak in outdoors.
