With rolling terrain as a backdrop at The Gun Club, expert marksmen and first-time novices take aim at Olympic and American-style skeet. Adventures continue on Lake Oconee, where bass boats graze the surface at 75 miles per hour. With more fish-per-square-acre than any lake in Georgia, Lake Oconee offers anglers a chance to fight large mouth bass, bream, catfish, crappie and striped bass hybrids.
An even greater challenge lies on the greens of The Oconee course, where duffers must choose between direct tee shots over inlets of Lake Oconee and long drives down tree-lined, dog-leg fairways. Combining a strategic design by Rees Jones and the natural setting of hardwood forests and expansive shorelines, the par-72, 7,029-yard Oconee course presents players the ultimate risk/reward design.
The Ritz-Carlton Spa -- recently ranked No. 4 on the list of "Top Resort Spas" by Travel + Leisure -- offers rejuvenation after a day of casting lines and sinking perfect putts. A Deep Tissue Massage, using the skilled hands of a trained therapist relaxes muscles while a soak in the whirlpool re-energizes. Additional southern-inspired treatments are available at the Mobil Four-star award-winning spa from Lemon Verbena treatments invigorating tired hands to Wild Lime Botanical Scalp & Body Remedy soothing tired scalps and necks.
Following a play-filled day, hungry men enjoy a succulent steak dinner at Linger Longer Bar and Grill. Options of a thick, 18 oz. Porterhouse Steak served with Port Wine Sauce, Homemade Linger Longer steak sauce and Maple Bacon Jus to satisfy rumbling bellies. Before retiring for the evening, fellows unwind with the mellow flavor and penetrating scent of Kelt XO Cognac and a full-bodied AVO No. 2 cigar.
