Golfweek Magazine publishes a list of Golf Courses You Can Play for each state. Lake Oconee usually rates high with candidates in the state of Georgia. According to the magazine, the number of courses selected in each state varies based on course supply, population and level of play. The selection panel considers only daily-fee layouts and courses accessible via resorts. Some qualifiers for being chosen for this honor are variety of holes, golf course conditioning, memorability of the golf holes, and the “walk in the park” test which rates the total enjoyment of the playing experience of the course-the fun of the game, as well as the aesthetics and design of the course.
