For those who yearn for a coastal location but fear the potential of hurricanes, Savannah is your place. Check out a map of the southeast coast; Savannah is notched into the coastline. Virtually all Atlantic storms catch the Gulfstream and are whisked north before they get near the city. In 100 years, only one serious hurricane has reached Savannah, and it came out of the Gulf of Mexico and across the Florida Panhandle. Popularized by the novel “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” Savannah is a better-than-good place to live and play golf all year round. And golf communities like The Landings and Ford Plantation, taken together, offer just about every possible style and price of golf home -- from mature and amply sized $250,000 single-family homes in need of a bit of cosmetic updating at The Landings to $1 million plus estate homes at Ford Plantation, where club owners recently completed a $7 million renovation of the Pete Dye course.
