As the city of Rincon’s investment in the Lost Plantation Golf Club is starting to pay dividends, it’s also getting noticed far and wide.
The latest Georgia Travel Guide, with either “The Walking Dead” or a “Gone With the Wind” motif on the cover, take your pick, even tossed bon mots at the golf course — “Hidden among the area’s wetlands, the Lost Plantation Golf Course (formerly Willopeg (sic)) is one of Georgia’s most challenging and well-maintained courses.”
City council members held two special called meetings recently and are starting the process to hire a golf pro for the club.
“We’ve made some good progress with the club and the condition of the course,” Mayor Ken Lee said.
The mayor said the city wants to get someone in position who can market the club a little better to the area, “and a large part of that is having the right professional in place,” he added.
The pro also would be able to give lessons.
The course’s Web site, lostplantationgolfclub.com, even has Google Earth maps of its 18 holes and a portal to reserve tee times for individual play or how to host a tournament there.
