The upgrades to the The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation will be completed in April, in time for The Masters Tournament, one of golf’s famous tournaments. Included in the upgrades are the resort’s guestrooms, as well as golf course upgrades, new dining venues and Masters-inspired spa treatments.
A Georgia tradition for nearly 80 years, The Masters Tournament is set for April 8-14 at the nearby Augusta National Golf Club.
The Ritz-Carlton Lodge will redo its 251 rooms and suites with a color palette and elements of classic Southern design, such as antique style furnishings, pecan woods and custom hand embroidered fabrics. A newly renovated and reconfigured Georgia’s Bistro will have new leather banquette seating, a gnarled wood table, new chairs and oxidized copper tabletops, as well as new lighting fixtures, floor coverings and artwork. The “new” Georgia’s Bistro will continue to offer Southern-inspired menus.
A new coffee shop will be added, complete with pastries, ice cream, candy and cold beverages, along with an assortment of Starbucks signature coffee beverages.
Reynolds Plantation welcomed back course architect Bob Cupp to revisit his original work, The Landing, together with former Augusta National golf course superintendent Billy Fuller. Under them, The Landing is undergoing a renovation that includes hole redesign, new bunkering, the expansion of tee boxes and a new set of forward tees, as well as work on the cart paths and buildings. Planting of peripheral ornamental grasses is also being done. The Landing is scheduled to re-open in April.
Throughout March and April, the property will offer Masters-themed spa treatments.
