Our very own Lake Oconee is hosting “Big Break Invitational” that is airing on the golf channel! 20 men and 20 women who were all former Big Break Competitors are going to compete in the inaugural Big Break Invitational at Reynolds Plantation. The Big Break Invitational will be a four-round tournament held at the golf course in Great Waters. The six men and six women who move on to Friday’s final round will be in the money.
Today is probably the most exciting day with all the players competing for a $300,000 purse, with $100,000 going to the champion!
I was lucky enough to see one of the competitors, Jerry Rice, from Big Break NFL Puerto Rico, playing golf at Great Waters yesterday.
The Great Waters golf course is consistently ranked in the top 100 in the nation. For example, the Great Waters golf course was voted Number five in the "Top 10 Nicklaus Courses You Can Play" by GOLF Magazine and has been among "America's Best Residential Golf Courses" by GolfWeek magazine. Golfers can play along the shores of Lake Oconee on this 7,073 yards and par 72 course. The golf courses at Great Waters and The Landing hosted the 41st PGA Professional National Championship, the showcase event for PGA Professionals, in June 2008.
