Besides its historic neighborhoods, great food and relaxed vibe, Savannah is known for its golf communities, with dozens of world-class courses within a short drive of downtown. If you’re looking to catch a round or two, or if you’re looking to buy a home within walking distance your favorite pastime, here’s a quick look at Savannah’s top 5 golf communities.
Situated about 10 minutes west of Savannah’s historic district, Southbridge is an immaculate master-planned community designed around the country club lifestyle. The centerpiece of the neighborhood is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Rees Jones, featuring an inviting clubhouse with pro shop and dining facilities. Other activities include fishing, tennis, swimming and a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa. The community itself features residences to fit every lifestyle, from single-family homes to luxury condos to sprawling estates.
Imagine turning out of bed in the morning for a daily round of golf at a Greg Norman Signature course! Here at Savannah Quarters, this is no fantasy.
