No. 11 Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, Greensboro, GA
This lush, sprawling resort known for its world-class golf courses occupies 10,000 acres along the western shore of Lake Oconee—a glittering blue expanse 75 miles east of Atlanta. You’ll stay busy with tee times at the property’s 99 championship lakefront holes (designed by golf starchitects Tom Fazio, Rees Jones, and Jack Nicklaus); the kids will love the waterfront s’mores each evening.
