Reynolds Plantation Sold
" ATLANTA (AP) — MetLife executives say the company has completed its purchase of the upscale Reynolds Plantation golf resort on Lake Oconee, which has struggled for months with its finances.

MetLife said in a statement Thursday that the deal includes The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, six championship golf courses, four full-service marinas and nearly 5,000 acres of undeveloped golf and waterfront property about 80 miles east of Atlanta.

A bank-appointed receiver was hired last year to operate the clubs and market the community and undeveloped land.
