Two of Smith Mountain Lake’s most popular golf courses have been acquired by McConnell Golf, a Raleigh-based firm focused on introducing golf enthusiasts to regional top-tier golf clubs.

The company’s founder, President & CEO John McConnell has owned property at The Water’s Edge since 1994 and states that he “fell in love with the course and with Smith Mountain Lake,” when he first visited in the early nineties.

McConnell Golf’s immediate priority is upgrading The Water’s Edge 36,000-square-foot clubhouse and course. The Water’s Edge is a private residential community known for its pristine courses and impeccable mountain and lake views.

McConnell Golf purchased The Westlake and The Water’s Edge Country Club from The Willard Companies, a Smith Mountain Lake-based firm credited with pioneering the development of Smith Mountain Lake.
