Cuscowilla on Lake OconeeCentral Georgia
Situated on a penisular, this Tuscany-style golf resort in Georgia is surrounded by picturesque Lake Oconee, Georgia's 2nd largest lake.

The challenging red clay bunkers are impressive intimidating even the best golfers. In 2007, Golfweek named Cuscowilla the #2 Best Residential Golf Course in America. This is one of many awards the golf course has been honored with. Cuscowilla also has a superb golf practice facility and the community is golf cart friendly.
