This Lake Oconee home is Augusta National’s twin

But this lakefront house has more to do with water sports than golf

With its cupola, white columns, and wraparound porch, the clubhouse at Augusta National is an integral part of that impossibly picturesque rite of spring known as the Masters Golf Tournament—held every year during the first full week of April. This house, located in Harbor Club at Lake Oconee, bears such a striking resemblance to the golf mecca that locals have taken to calling it the “Augusta National House.” Designed by architect Calvin Cline, it was constructed in 2001. The original owner wanted a house with Southern charm that would be reminiscent of her native Charleston. Located directly on the lake, this house has more to do with water sports than golf. However, like other Lake Oconee developments, the family-owned Harbor Club does have a golf course, along with a marina, swim-and-tennis center, and other amenities.
