The Landings in Savannah has idyllic island location and great golf
It’s hard to claim you’ve found an undiscovered gem about a place that’s been there for well over 30 years and has around 10,000 people.
The Landings on Skidaway Island (how’s that for a great name?) is one of the largest golf communities along the East Coast, with six excellent courses in its arsenal.
It has an idyllic location: on an inner barrier island, with that beautiful, Southern coastal vegetation – ancient oaks draped with Spanish moss, spreading marsh views, colorful wading birds – yet protected from Atlantic storms by outer islands.
There’s a feeling of peaceful isolation once you get on the island, yet it’s only 15-20 minutes away from downtown Savannah, site of the best-selling book, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.”
This is a community that guards its peace aggressively. It’s a true golf community, and the residents want to keep it that way – they resist big resorts or rental program bringing in outsiders. It’s also an aging population, however, and officials are actively trying to bring in newcomers.
You could do much worse if you’re a golf nut looking for a serene spot to get your golf fix, either in retirement or otherwise.
