Georgia Golf Communities & Golf Homes: The Landings on Skidaway Island
Just a dozen miles away from the historic city of Savannah and located on Georgia's scenic Emerald Coast sits one of the nation's most illustrious residential communities, The Landings on Skidaway Island. This private community gives its residents a cornucopia of amenities all set in an unmatched island location, making it a combination of beauty, exclusivity, and activity.
Having been named one of the country's top residential communities by the influential Urban Land Institute, The Landings gives its residents the best of luxury living in an area of unmatched beauty. More than 30 tennis courts and 40 miles of biking and walking trails are a boon to active residents, as are the state-of-the-art fitness center, two water marinas and four opulent clubhouses. For golfers, however, The Landings is like a dream come true, as no fewer than six world championship golf courses dot the island residency, all designed by some of the top and most creative minds in golf architecture.
Golf courses at The Landings
A brief overview of the golf courses available at The Landings shows the otherworldly quality offered to golfers at this prestigious residential community.
Palmetto Course: Often chosen as the host course for The Landings Club championships, the Palmetto course is an Arthur Hills design that demands length off the tee as well as accuracy to avoid the numerous and deep bunkers.
Plantation Course: Designed by the legendary William Byrd, the Plantation is the only one of the six courses that was designed to give players the full links golf experience. Brilliant views of Adams Creek and Ossabaw Sound greet players at the turn at the Plantation, which dazzles with its incomparable visual quality for the full 18 holes.
Oakridge Course: Another Arthur Hills design, Oakridge is the perfect place for golfers that fancy themselves as shot-makers, as strategy and accuracy are a must. The back nine is where Oakridge truly comes alive, including the famed 15th hole, nicknamed the "Cemetery Hole" as it features a historic gravesite of some of the early residents of Skidaway Island.
Marshwood Course: The great Arnold Palmer teamed with golf course architect Frank Duane to put together Marshwood, The Landings first golf course. Featuring numerous doglegs through fairways often lined with pines, Marshwood is the epitome of island golf, offering fair yet challenging play, incredible views and a vibrant island feel.
Magnolia Course: Palmer put together his second design at The Landings with Magnolia, where he worked with long-time associate Ed Seay. Recently renovated, Magnolia's re-opening has been met with rave reviews, and many feel that Magnolia's opening nine holes represents the best of golf at The Landings.
Deer Creek Course: Legendary American designer Tom Fazio put his mark on The Landings with the Deer Creek Course, the newest of the community's six courses. Fazio's hallmarks are all here - large bunkers, sculpted mounds, multi-tiered fairways and elevated greens - to make Deer Creek a challenging and scenic option for residents.
While the six golf courses demonstrate The Landings commitment to excellence, this island community is so much more than golf. For lovers of nature, there is a designated “Audubon Cooperative Sanctuaries” by Audubon International. Those that love the sea can sail through the Intracoastal Highway with the two marinas, which allow residents to store their vessels either on the water or in dry dock, and sailing programs are offered. Those that love to fish will never be without a new hole to test, as there are 151 well-stocked lagoons, as well as fishing, crabbing and shrimping available from the piers.
Overall, The Landings has the amenities, the scenery, and the overall class that makes it easily one of the best residential communities in not just America's glorious South, but also in the entire nation.
Price Range: Lots range from $200,000 to more than $1 million at The Landings, with homes running from $300,000 to more than $2 Million.
