Lake Thurmond

Lake Thurmond

Lake Thurmond, named for the longtime and famous South Carolina Senator, straddles the border between South Carolina and Georgia and is one of those large, amoeba-like shaped manmade bodies of water created for hydro-electric purposes.  Many golf communities owe their very existence to the flooding program during the mid part of the 20th Century.  Savannah Lakes, and its 4,000 acres that includes two excellent golf courses, is the predominant golf community on the South Carolina side of the lake.  The lake, which comprises 71,000 acres and claims 1,200 miles of shoreline, was the result of the damming of the Savannah River in the early 1950s.  The nearest town, McCormick, has a population of just 2,700 people, according to the 2010 U.S. Census.  Greenwood, about 25 minutes away, provides most services to residents along Lake Thurmond.
