By Dave Daubert

Coral Hospitality-GA, LLC today announced the completion of the first of a two-phase renovation project at Little Ocmulgee State Park & Lodge totaling $2.5 million. All public spaces, as well as 30 guestrooms at the Helena, Georgia lodge, received extensive upgrades, just in time to welcome guests for the fall season.

"We are excited to debut a long-awaited new look at Little Ocmulgee State Park & Lodge," said Clint Smith, general manager. "The cool weather makes it the perfect time to visit Little Ocmulgee to check out our beautiful new offerings, enjoy a round of spectacular golf, and take advantage of all the great park activities."

The comprehensive renovations made to half of the lodge's guestrooms reflect the latest design trends in the hotel industry, including wood-look vinyl floors that create a rustic feel, luxurious linens, updated refrigerators, walk-in showers with modern glass walls and luxurious European-style bath soaps and shampoos.

The property's on-site dining venue, Fairway Grill, also received a refresh with a coat of paint and new carpeting. Fairway Grill serves southern favorites with views of the 6th & 7th holes of the golf course with indoor and outdoor dining, ranked one of the best public courses in the South. The restaurant will open a new sports-themed bar this winter, introducing more options for guests during their stay.

In celebration of the completed renovations, Little Ocmulgee State Park & Lodge is inviting guests to experience the refreshed lodge, scenic golf course and the serene beauty of South Georgia with a "Stay and Play" package, which includes an overnight stay in the renovated lodge, one 18-hole round of golf for two guests and one cart rental. Stay and Play packages start at $75(price based on double occupancy, subject to availability and blackout dates may apply. To book with the special offer, visit or call 1-877-591-5572.

The park's history dates back to the 1930s when it was constructed by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps. The golf course was designed by O.C. Jones of the Robert Trent Jones family and opened in 1965 and is one of the best state park layouts in the Peach State. The second phase of renovations is scheduled to be completed by winter 2020 and valued at $2 million, upgrading the remaining lodge rooms with modern amenities and a refreshed design.

Little Ocmulgee State Park & Lodge is a relaxing South Georgia destination surrounded by live oaks, peaceful pines, majestic magnolias, and sandhills. The park features the 2.6 mile Oak Ridge Trail. No homes, no noise while playing golf. Guests can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities like hiking, tennis, golf or swimming in the private pool or Little Ocmulgee Lake with a white sand beach, as well as other nearby attractions.
