West Chatham County is home to the two fastest-growing golf communities in the area – Southbridge and Savannah Quarters. With much of the Savannah area’s industry concentrated here, including Gulfstream, many of the families of its workforce call these wonderful communities home.
Southbridge – Traditional Neighborhoods with Family-Friendly Amenities

Nestled among 1,400 tranquil acres of woodlands, lakes, lagoons and walking trails, Southbridge has been a thriving success for 20 years. Southbridge offers traditional neighborhoods with family-friendly amenities, and one of Georgia’s finest 18-hole championship golf courses. But more than that, it offers safety, serenity and a variety of activities for people at every stage of their life.
For golfers Southbridge is a paradise, offering a Championship 18 Hole Rees Jones Golf Course and a magnificent clubhouse. If tennis is your sport, then you’ll love the Southbridge Racquet Club which has 14 courts -– 12 of which are clay, and two that are lighted for evening play!
The Grand Lake Lodge and Spa has more than six acres of resort-style amenities. It offers walking trails, beach volleyball, basketball, state-of-the-art workout equipment, and group activities and floor exercises including Yoga, Pilates and Spin Classes. Not to mention a full-service Day Spa on the days you’d like to feel extra pampered. The Resort Style swim club offers a beach entry area, water slides, spray umbrellas, lap lanes and even spray pools for the little ones. It’s the ultimate staycation!

From single-family homes and estate-sized residences to maintenance-free condos, townhomes and villas, homes in this master-planned community reflect classic southern architecture in a private country club setting.
Two, three- and four-bedroom single-family homes available, priced from $300,000 to $2 million with new construction homes available. Maintenance-free villas, condos and townhomes are priced from $200,000 to $350,000.

Savannah Quarters – Upscale Conveniences of a Superbly Master Planned Community
Savannah Quarters name originates from the civil war. Back in 1864, General Sherman captured Savannah for the Union. However, because he was so captivated by its beauty, he gave it to President Abraham Lincoln as a Christmas present! Thus, the city was spared from flames, and its beauty and architecture were preserved. Sherman’s troops were actually housed or “quartered” on the lands comprising Savannah Quarters, hence the name.
Endless Activities and Upscale Conveniences
Today, this 2,600-acre community, located just 12 miles from Savannah, is still a treasure for so many. Savannah Quarters offers a blend of neighborhoods and lifestyles set amidst the beauty of Georgia’s coastal low country. With that, comes endless activities and upscale conveniences of a superbly master planned community including golf, swim, tennis, fitness pool and walking trails.
While one-third of Savannah Quarters is dedicated to parkland, nature preserves, lakes and lagoons – the rest is comprised of residential and light commercial areas. To meet the needs of a diverse community, residents can choose from home sites, townhomes, single family or estate homes. While the commercial areas – with planned shops, restaurants, entertainment venues, offices and more – bring together the conveniences and joys reminiscent of a small town.
With classic Southern style, impeccable amenities and a nostalgic feel, you’ll find that either of these two master-planned communities in West Chatham County can accommodate your family’s needs and desires.
