Now that it’s April, golf is in prime swing: in Augusta at the upcoming Masters Tournament, but also throughout the South and the rest of the country. It’s the perfect time to get out on the golf course! And after you do, you can soothe your muscles with this special treatment: the Golf Ball Massage at The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee.

A signature treatment of Oconee’s spa, the Golf Ball Massage is a deeply relaxing treatment in which you’re kneaded with a warm golf ball that targets muscles with deep knots. The size, shape and density of the golf ball creates a fluid, relaxing and therapeutic experience like none other. You can even personalize your massage by bringing your own golf ball!

A gorgeous lakefront resort that’s just an hour and a half from Augusta, Oconee makes the most of Georgia’s natural beauty on the course and off. Its five championship golf courses were designed by Rees Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio and Bob Cupp.

In addition to the massage, Oconee offers many more golf experiences; learn more here.
