Reynolds Lake Oconee offers unique sporting experience with former PGA Tour professional Blake Adams

GREENSBORO, Ga. (May 2, 2022) When Reynolds Lake Oconee guests sign up for the “Blake Adams Kingdom Experience,” their most difficult decisions will be whether they want to play golf, fish, shoot clays, or socialize with the former PGA Tour professional.  Or they can select several since the versatile Adams is a perfect fit for any event.

Golf is Adams’ strongest suit. When the director of player development at The Kingdom at Reynolds Lake Oconee tees it up with an individual or a group, he’ll share tips and offer instruction as well as entertain with stories from his 20 years on Tour, which included numerous Top 25 finishes in PGA Tour tournaments and other events like The U.S. Open, The PGA Championship and The Players Championship.

Adams also can help guests enjoy the same comprehensive club fitting and building experience typically reserved for PGA Tour professionals, working with one of The Kingdom’s TaylorMade Tour Club Fitters to match the proper equipment with the guest’s swing and specifications. Since opening in 2007, The Kingdom at Reynolds Lake Oconee is the country’s lone TaylorMade fitting venue where recreational golfers have access to the same expertise and technology used by Team TaylorMade’s athletes and club pros.

Raised in Georgia and a graduate of Georgia Southern University, Adams played golf at The University of Georgia (three years) as well as Georgia Southern University.  Adams is the consummate outdoorsman; he is as comfortable fishing in Lake Oconee and shooting clays at the community’s Sporting Grounds as he is on any of Reynolds’ six golf courses. An affable storyteller, he’s also the ideal companion over cocktails and dinner.

An Adams “Kingdom Experience” can be constructed any number of ways.  Here’s one potential itinerary:

• Day 1: Club fitting, shooting clays, cocktail reception with Adams.
• Day 2: Morning fishing, afternoon golf, dinner with Adams.

“Whether he’s holding a golf club, fishing rod, shotgun, or glass of wine, Blake is a terrific complement to every activity on property,” said Tim Hong, Chief Operating Officer, Reynolds Lake Oconee. “He’s also very good at creating lifelong memories.

The “Experience” also features luxury accommodations in a Reynolds Lake Oconee cottage or condominium.

A prime destination located between Atlanta and Augusta, Reynolds Lake Oconee is ranked among the top golf communities with courses designed by legendary architects: Great Waters by Jack Nicklaus, National by Tom Fazio, Oconee by Rees Jones, The Landing, and The Preserve by Bob Cupp. The members-only Creek Club was designed by Jim Engh.
