An Intracoastal Waterway island community, owned by its residents. Almost 40 years of national awards for golf and community excellence, with an address in one of the South’s most charming and recognized cities. Amenities you would expect in a world-class destination resort, but in a residential community with the feel of a small town. It can only be The Landings on Savannah’s Skidaway Island.
Amenities start with great golf – 6 courses by Fazio, Palmer, Byrd and Hills. The Landings is the host to the 2010 Georgia Amateur Championship and the 2011 USGA Women’s Team Championship (a great fit, as The Landings Women’s Golf Association is one of the largest such associations in the U.S.). Four clubhouse-restaurants, two marinas (with access to the Intracoastal Waterway), 34 tennis courts, 40 miles of trails and a newly renovated 48,000 sf fitness center round out the lifestyle amenities.
The golf and club facilities at The Landings are private, and that sense of privacy is furthered by the community’s location on 6,500 acre Skidaway Island, which the gated community shares with a state park and the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography.
While great golf is a hallmark of the community, The Landings is as vibrant as its great Southern hometown, Savannah. The Landings has been named Savannah’s “Best Community” by Savannah magazine, and with over 8,500 residents there are always friends nearby year-round. Being close to education and industry makes this a great place to raise a family, and the kid-focused offerings (unique for a gated community of this national scope) make it a place where kids and grandkids want to come and play.
And that “playful” atmosphere holds true for adults, as well. Beyond Savannah’s great healthcare, education and transportation options, the historic city offers a myriad of cultural facilities and festivals, and one of the nation’s largest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Georgia’s treatment of pension income (the state excludes an increasing amount from income, so most is tax free – click here for details) lets Landings residents keep more of their hard-earned nest eggs for “playthings,” and Savannah’s famous shops and restaurants are a fun temptation. Venture beyond town and you can play at the beach too – Tybee Island and Hilton Head are an easy drive (or boat ride!) away.
What makes The Landings different? The amenities and the great island location in Savannah are obvious, but the stability of being fully owned (without debt!) by a proactive homeowners association makes a big difference in the day-to-day operations of the community. We are all owners not just of our individual properties, but of the assets of the community – and we share a proactive approach to making this place better that has reaped great rewards. The Landings’ homeowner association-owned real estate company, The Landings Company, offers exclusive “Discovery Packages” that provide an introduction to Savannah and the island’s lifestyle, and include golf, tennis, boating, fitness and dining opportunities. We hope to see you here!
