This week the Lake Oconee area was abuzz with Golf Channel cameras and golfers as the Golf Channel held its inaugural Big Break Invitational Golf Tournament at Reynolds Great Water Course. On Tuesday we walked the back nine to view the action, and observe our son Jay in his role as golf caddie. The Great Waters back nine holes border beautiful Lake Oconee, and many homeowners were lucky enough to watch the golf from their porches or yards. Search the Great Waters Community for wonderful homes for sale on the water, on the golf course, and interior at many levels of pricing. Many boaters had a front row seat! As the Golf Channel televised three hours per day of the tournament, Lake Oconee received a great deal of attention from watching homebuyers! Yes, Snoopy, the beloved blimp was seen hovering in the blue sky above, watching some amazing golf.
40 aspiring men and women professional golfers gathered to vie for the $100,000 purse by competing on the beautiful course on the lake. In this unusual coed competition, the first 2 days were between same-gender participants in a modified Stableford scoring format designed to reduce the field to 12 men and 12 women. In day 3, the twenty-four remaining golfers competed in match play to reduce the field further to six men, and six women.
Of 21 “Big Break” seasons past, six have been co-ed that awarded a single winner. Which gender won more? You guessed it – three were won by women and three were won by men, which indicates the inaugural Big Break Invitational is anybody’s – and either gender’s – for the taking.
The Great Waters Course doesn’t know or care whether the person standing on the first tee Friday is a woman or a man. Twelve terrific competitors remain and for each of them, the battles they fight in the final round will be with themselves and with the course. What it won’t be is a battle of the sexes … or will it?
Come enjoy Lake Oconee’s beauty and relaxed lifestyle!
