What is Cuscowilla?
February 15, 2005 EATONTON, GA -- An unhurried pace A beautiful natural setting A rich sense of community
These simple but elusive pleasures are the hallmark of Cuscowilla, the awarding-winning golf resort and residential community nestled along the shores of Georgia\'s majestic Lake Oconee. Rated #1 Best Residential Golf Courses in America by Golfweek, in 2005, it was established in 1997 and designed to preserve the legendary serenity of the area\'s Seed Orchard. Situated on 700 acres of pristine countryside lovingly landscaped to respect its native wild grasses, old trees and lakeshore vistas, this charming upscale community is beyond compare. While only eighty miles from Atlanta, the minute you set foot on its grounds, you\'ll feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, at home with the peaceful sounds of nature
A leisurely tour of Cuscowilla will reveal its unique blend of quiet elegance and comfortable lifestyle. The residences are located in secluded parts of the 700 acre property, often behind automatic gates away from the resort side of the development, but always just minutes away. There is a wide variety of options, with wonderful architecturally designed master homes, as well as Cedar Golf Cottages and Lake Villa\'s, which are spacious, built of fine pine, cedar shake roofs and hand-hewn granite and luxuriously appointed with top-of-line kitchens, granite fireplaces and outdoor chimneys, some of which are in the resorts rental program, allowing the home owners the added flexibility of earning some income when they are not in residence themselves.
At the heart of this special community is The Golf Club at Cuscowilla, its highly acclaimed eighteen-hole championship golf course and unique Frank Lloyd Wright inspired Golf House complete with oak barreled ceilings and veranda patios stretching around the 14th green. Winding through the rolling green meadows and along the shoreline of Georgia\'s second largest lake, this 6,847-yard, par 70 classic lay-of-the-land course features Bent grass greens and Bermuda-grass fairways for challenging play, and the most dramatic bunking in America with their red-clay and white sand centers and \"scruffy\" bunkering edges. In keeping with the Cuscowilla\'s vision of harmony with its natural surroundings, golf course designers Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore created a course beyond compare, further rated by Golfweek as one of the Top 100 Modern Courses in America in 2005 (#15) and in the \"Top 100 Courses in America You Can Play\" (#22) by GOLF magazine in 2005.
Property owners and Resort guests enjoy two great restaurants; the casual Golf House Grill and famous Waterside Restaurant, each offering a delightful experience that equally matches that found on the golf course. A huge Resort Swimming Pool, Tennis courts and miles of nature walking trails ensure that even the non golfer enjoys Cuscowilla\'s rich wealth of amenities. Lake and interior pond fishing, boating, bike rides, and even a Kids Club make Cuscowilla a fine, year-round family destination for recreation and relaxation.
Cuscowilla\'s home sites take full advantage of the community\'s special land features and outstanding views. Choices include a full selection of lakefront, golf, wooded and vista views. Lots range from $100,000 to $1m+. Real estate opportunities include Golf Cottages, Lodge Villa\'s, Lakeside villas, a limited supply of water front Condo\'s and a beautiful array of year-round residences. Homes are available from $350,000 to $3million-plus.
