There’s at least one moment in everyone’s first round at Reynolds Plantation’s Great Waters Golf Course where you come off a hole that just played down to a lakeside green and then tee off away from the lake and by the time you get to the next green you’re at the lake again and you wonder: did I forget to take my medication this morning?  Such is the nature of Jack Nicklaus’s fine work here …
