“I am looking forward to the camaraderie on this trip to Reynolds Lake Oconee, which is on the rise amongst the most notable golf destinations in America,” said Ginella, the popular Golf Channel on-air personality. “If I wasn’t hosting this trip, I’d phone a few friends and book it tomorrow.”

Registration is limited to 72, with prices ranging from $2,649 (condo accommodations) to $3,449 (rooms at The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee).

Golfers will play the Rees Jones-designed Oconee Course and will receive a rare treat—a round on the members-only Creek Club, the exclusive private course at Reynolds Lake Oconee designed by Jim Engh.  The third round will be at The National, the popular 27-hole Tom Fazio layout.
