At its meeting of December 7, 2018, the Anderson County Legislative Delegation endorsed a request from Anderson County for $350,000 in funding through the State’s Water Recreation Resource Fund for infrastructure improvements at the Green Pond Landing and Event Center on Lake Hartwell.
The proud host site of the upcoming 2018 Geico Bassmaster Classic, Green Pond Landing has hosted fifteen major fishing tournaments since opening as a tournament facility in February 2015. These events have generated economic impact in excess of $27 million and attracted more than 16,000 participants and attendees.
Green Pond Landing also serves as a free-to-the-public lake access facility open to boaters and visitors year-round. Thousands of boaters from across the region visit Green Pond each year, primarily due to the quality of its facilities and easy access to I-85.
Anderson County expresses its appreciation to the members of the Anderson County Legislative Delegation for their support of this regionally-significant project.
