Here's a fun fact: Labor Day is always the first Monday in September. This year, that day is September 6. It's a time to pay homage to all who work in America -- including you. Everyone's efforts, big or small, enhance our country's strength, well-being, and prosperity, making the U.S. one of the best in the world.

But Labor Day was also created to celebrate workers' rights, like safer working conditions, standardized work hours, and the ability to take time off. So if Labor Day is a vacation day for you, enjoy it. 

And even though Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer and the beginning of fall, don't be dismayed. The weather is still fantastic, and the long holiday weekend is the perfect time to relax and enjoy time with family and friends. If you live in Lake Country, here are some ideas for making your Labor Day a fun and memorable one. 

Appreciate the lake

Whether you want to go boating, jet skiing, swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, or simply hanging your feet off the dock—you'll have the best time doing it at Lake Oconee. Even though Lake Oconee is Georgia's second-largest lake, it doesn't have the same boat traffic and congestion issues as the largest lake in the state. So whether you head out on the water on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or Monday, you'll have a fantastic time. Wondering where to go on the lake? We recommend taking a leap off of Jumping Rock and chilling out at The Sandbar

Enjoy "Last Call" for The Boathouse Restaurant

The Boathouse Restaurant has been a huge success this summer. Everyone loved the delicious food, the live music, and the overall awesome vibe...not to mention the gorgeous views of Lake Oconee. But the restaurant is only open seasonally, so if you want to enjoy it one last time before we close up for 2021, please make your way over via boat or car. You'll find The Boathouse Restaurant and Marina at 3991 Walker Church Rd in Greensboro. If you're coming by boat, the GPS coordinates are 33.4775466599688, -83.18179137414566. The restaurant hours are Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 11 AM - 9 PM. Sunday, September 5, is the last day that The Boathouse Restaurant will be open in 2021.

Dine on Sunday Brunch at The Clubhouse Restaurant

Don't feel like cooking on Sunday? Sleep in, then head over to the Clubhouse Restaurant for a delicious Sunday brunch. Nosh on yummy items from our brunch menu like our popular Bubble & Squeak, Croque Madame, or Stuffed Brioche French Toast. The Clubhouse Restaurant is open for brunch on Sunday from 10 AM - 3 PM. If you plan to have a party of six or more, we kindly ask that you please make a reservation by emailing or calling us at 706-453-7111.

Play award-winning golf

Our championship golf course is typically closed on Mondays but not on the Labor Day holiday. It's open on September 6 from 8 AM - 12 PM. If you already got the day off, why not play? It's a lot of fun, especially if you've got family and friends in town. As of this writing, tee times are available starting at 8 AM, with open slots available until noon. Please don't delay in booking your favorite tee time, as they often go quickly on holidays.

No matter what you decide to do this upcoming Labor Day weekend, we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy life at Harbor Club. Want to experience it for yourself? Contact us today. We can't wait to plan your visit to our fun-loving, Southern Living-Inspired Community.
