The Real Estate Scorecard Gives Reynolds the Bliss Award
April, 2016, the Real Estate Scorecard in a press release announced that Reynolds Lake Oconee has received a Bliss Award. The Real Estate Scorecard provides in-depth research and candid insight into the overall happiness and satisfaction of over 370 master planned communities in the South. Each year, they honor the ‘best’ with a Bliss Award in fifteen categories.
Like the visionary Walt Disney, Mercer Reynolds, the original real estate developer of Reynolds Plantation, knew over two decades ago that he had scored big when he acquired one of Central Georgia’s most beautiful trophy properties set on 18,000 acre sparkling Lake Oconee. Over the years, Real Estate Scorecard has watched Reynolds Lake Oconee blossom into one of the most elegant master planned communities. The curb appeal is impeccable. While most folks know Reynolds Plantation for its award winning Lake Oconee golf courses, it offers so much more.
This year Real Estate Scorecard spent some time at Reynolds, and while riding on the biking trails, Reynolds Lake Oconee tennis facility captured their attention. As they learned more, they discovered that only a handful of communities in the U.S. can boast affiliation with PBI (Peter Burwash International Inc), the world’s leading tennis management company providing quality tennis services. Reynolds Lake Oconee is one of them. Since 1975, PBI pros have taught over 3 million students in 135 countries.
Dave Neuhart, PBI Tennis Director and former PBI Professional of the Year, joined the Reynolds’ team in 2004 and has lead their program ever since, which had about 40 club members at the time. If you love tennis, Reynolds Lake Oconee is an ideal place to live.
After exploring over 300 master planned communities in the south, Real Estate Scorecard affirms it’s hard to find a more well designed gated community with a thriving tennis facility which is open 7 days a week. The tennis center is meticulously maintained and the clay courts are resurfaced annually. Set in a lightly wooded forest, the pine trees are peaceful and offer partial shade.
After a fun day on the courts, Reynolds club members have an extensive array of amenities to enjoy such as water sports and boating, relaxing spa services at The Lake Club wellness center, or dining at one of the five restaurants in the community serving up healthy creations and farm-to-table cuisine. Reynolds is also home to six championship Lake Oconee golf courses and the award winning Ritz-Carlton Lodge.
Tennis has seen a new surge in interest as it is not only a healthy, competitive sport, but it provides a fun social connection. With over 200 days of sunshine, the mild four season weather at Lake Oconee adds to the sport’s appeal, along with the warm southern hospitality and friendliness of the people making it one of the ideal places to live.
To Real Estate Scorecard, Reynolds Lake Oconee has served up the perfect match for any tennis enthusiast or soon-to-be. They are confident your family will fall in love with our 2016 Bliss Award winner for Best Tennis Community of the Year – Reynolds Lake Oconee
