A few years ago, we shared an article, "Best Golf Communities in Georgia: 10 Reasons Why Harbor Club is Tops." And today, with over 11,000 hits, it certainly resonated. So, we're revisiting the best Georgia golf communities subject because there are ten more reasons why Harbor Club is tops.
1 - Harbor Club is a debt-free community
How many lux golf and lake communities do you know of that are entirely debt-free? Harbor Club is one of the few, and The Matney family, who owns and operates Harbor Club, intends to keep it that way. The family is very involved in the community and works hard to continuously add more value for Harbor Club residents and members. As a result, those who live here take great pride in their neighborhood and have tremendous peace of mind knowing it's financially secure.
2 - Harbor Club is a modern country club
What exactly do you envision when you think of a "country club"? In your mind's eye, the image likely includes a picturesque golf course. Golf is a fantastic and fun sport, but there is so much more to a modern country club than that. Here at Harbor Club, we've created a more contemporary club culture with a wide array of offerings and experiences that entice both golfers and non-golfers alike. The country club of today is more akin to a family-centric activity center. Besides the standard offerings of exclusive golf, tennis, and swimming, many other fun-filled fitness options and activities are available, like pickleball and yoga. What's more, there are multiple social, leisurely, and educational events for all ages to appreciate here.
3 - Harbor Club is perfect for families
We're excited about the new generation of young families who've made Harbor Club home in their pursuit of a better quality of life. They love living here in a thriving, safe environment where fun and beauty abound. Plus, there are several excellent educational institutions nearby, with one of the best charter schools in the state of Georgia located just a few miles from our gates. In addition, Harbor Club boasts over 80% full-time residents -- an impressive feat for a resort-style, lake, and golf community such as ours. We truly live, work, and play here.
4 - Harbor Club is idyllic for working remotely
The work-from-home trend isn't expected to slow down, and some may never return to the office. Since the pandemic, several companies have increasingly allowed more employees to work remotely. Today, most people work and get educated from anywhere there's high-speed internet access. Harbor Club homes are well-equipped with thoughtfully-designed home office spaces too. Those that live and work here do so with gorgeous views of Lake Oconee, a pristine golf course, peaceful woods, or a tranquil pond. They enjoy their lunch breaks like never before, with access to tons of fantastic amenities located right outside their door. So why go back to the office? Many have opted to make better use of their valuable time and continue working from home.
5 - Harbor Club offers top-notch, resort-style living
When you work (and learn) from home, it's nice to get a break now and then. Our residents are making the most of those respites by heading outside. Resort-style living at Harbor Club offers plenty of quick, fun things to do. You could bring the dog to the dog park, practice on the putting green, hit a bucket of balls at the driving range, go for a quick run or walk at the track, go for a boat ride on Lake Oconee, grab a delicious lunch, or indulge in a zen-like yoga class. When tons of fun options are readily available, it's easy to take a break and enjoy well-earned recreational endeavors.
6 - Harbor Club is growing with new neighborhoods
We offer several beautiful neighborhoods within the Harbor Club community. We most recently unveiled the newest, The Enclave at Heron Ridge, built by Southvine Homes. The well-designed ranch homes are perfect for homebuyers who wish to age in place. The houses are configured for improved accessibility and easy, first-floor living - all without sacrificing luxury. With a fast-growing senior population in the U.S., we understand the requirements and strengths of older adults. We happily cater well to both the young and the "young at heart" with neighborhoods and impressive amenities that successfully combine the two.
7 - Golf membership options abound

8 - Kids love living at Harbor Club
Harbor Club offers a warm and inviting environment where kids socialize and create close friendships outside of school. What's more, those interactions help children learn how to interact, respect, and behave around other kids and adults. Harbor Club caters to kids with fun events and activities like Junior Golf Camp, Breakfast with Santa, Easter egg hunts, Halloween costume parties, golf cart parades, corn hole, golf lessons, comedians, magicians, pool parties, playground, dog park, and more.
