Reynolds Lake Oconee, TaylorMade remain partners in South’s premier golf training facility.
No need to look any further than 70 miles east of Atlanta to get the perfect combination of golf club fitting and golf instruction, all part of one-stop shopping at Reynolds Lake Oconee.
The new major expansion of The Reynolds Kingdom of Golf presented by TaylorMade (The Kingdom), the premier golf training facility in the country, has been completed and is ready for golfers of all abilities and handicaps.
The 16-acre, 7,600-square-foot campus – adjacent to the Rees Jones-designed Oconee Course and AAA Five Diamond Award-winning Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee – has evolved into a creative, comprehensive golf academy adaptable to all golfers.
Since its debut in 2007, The Kingdom has served as the East Coast fitting center for many PGA and LPGA Tour stars. It is the only TaylorMade venue in the country where recreational golfers can be fit for equipment in the same elite environment used by tour players and club professionals on staff with TaylorMade. There is even a TaylorMade tour van you can visit.
The expansion of The Kingdom is another example of the $50 million investment in ongoing renovations at Reynolds Lake Oconee. Since MetLife’s initial investment in August 2012, the golf courses, clubhouses, and hotels have undergone substantial investment and improvements. Additionally, a golf village was built at the National course and dining areas in the Great Waters clubhouse were renovated. The rooms, cottages, restaurants, spa, and pools of The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee also have been redecorated and refurbished.
Previously available only to PGA TOUR professionals, The Kingdom now offers an unmatched custom golf-club-fitting experience and on-site club building along with golf instruction for all ages and skill levels. Through Reynolds Lake Oconee’s exclusive partnership with TaylorMade, The Kingdom is available to all guests of Reynolds Lake Oconee, whether staying in cottages or at The Ritz-Carlton.
The Kingdom is home to an expansive range; four fully enclosed, heated hitting bays; three heated, covered hitting bays; a three-hole, short-game practice area; and classroom facilities that allow for private or group instruction over a single day or multiple days.
The instruction curriculum — which integrates Reynolds Kingdom of Golf teaching and coaching staff — includes golf fitness training and complete swing and body analysis. Two fully enclosed teaching studios are equipped with the latest in technology, including TrackMan 4 and Bodi-Track force plates, as well as high-speed Ximea cameras.
After you visit The Kingdom, it’s time to hit the course.
