The weather was near perfect earlier today on the Oak Ridge Golf Club at The Landings near Savannah, GA, during our first Home On The Course Discovery Weekend. The three couples who participated enjoyed a round of golf on one of The Landings’ six layouts, in bright sunshine and 70 degrees, followed by a chef-inspired three-course lunch in the Oak Ridge clubhouse, part of a weekend that includes another round of golf on the Arthur Hills Palmetto Golf Club, as well as a dinners and lunches in the community’s clubhouses.
The gated Landings golf community is just 15 minutes from the intriguing city of Savannah and is fully owned by its residents and club members, a combination of assets that we have not found in any other golf development. Its successful on-site real estate agency is run by the homeowner’s association and contributes hundreds of thousands of dollars to the community’s kitty annually. At a time when many vacation and retirement home seekers worry about the financial security of golf communities, The Landings can boast that its destiny is in the hands of its residents, all 4,800 of them, rather than a developer.

We will have more to say about The Landings and our Discovery Weekend in the coming days.
The mature Landings golf community is nearly 40 years old, but its many live oak trees, dripping with Spanish moss, are hundreds of years old.
