To all Golfweek Amateur Tour Members,


On behalf of the entire Golfweek organization, I want to thank you for your membership of the Golfweek Amateur Tour.  We are incredibly proud of our relationship with what we feel is the best option for organized amateur competition for folks like you and me. 


As you know, one of the current benefits of your Golfweek Amateur Tour membership is a subscription to Golfweek Magazine.  Over the past few years, we have made continuing adjustments to the frequency of our printed magazine to better align with how advertisers value our print and online offerings and in the best interests of our long-term business.  Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our advertisers and our overall business, we have had to make even more reductions to the frequency of our printed magazine for the remainder of the year in order to keep our talented writers and support team in place.  We appreciate your understanding.


At the same time, we have invested heavily into to make it the best place for avid golfers and golf fans to get their golf news.  I encourage you to bookmark the site and to subscribe to our daily newsletters.  Here is the link:


Thank you again for being a Golfweek Amateur Tour Member.

My course at Reynolds Lake Oconee is called the National, but a more appropriate name is "The Natural." The holes flow with the terrain into ravines and valleys, making for a playable, member-friendly course.

-Tom Fazio, Golf Course Architect, The National

The National

The National's trademark is its dramatic elevation changes from tee to fairway, as well as on approach shots - some as much as 60 feet. The Ridge, Bluff and Cove nines that make up The National offer unmatched playing opportunities and are named for the type of terrain they feature. No two holes are alike in these three unique playing opportunities, but all share a consistency in feel for the way they feature the natural undulating contours of the region, making it a total 27-hole experience.

Tournament Schedule



On Friday February 28th, the National will be holding a 11:00 a.m. shotgun start for all those players that are wanting to get in a practice round.

In addition, I had a request from a member asking if there was the possibility to play at any of the other courses at Reynolds Lake Oconee. The answer is YES.... I'm including the details below for all. Pleasenote that all practice rounds must be booked thru the National Golf Club (for the National course) or...thru the Group Golf coordinator at Reynolds Lake Oconee.
