Cover Feature – July 2007

Golf course living in the manner that is now being offered at The Reserve at Savannah Harbor is rarely, if at all, found anywhere in the world.
Located on a distinctive river island, The Reserve at Savannah Harbor is a neighborhood community that serious golfers will fall in love with – nestled in the arms of a beautiful golf course within eyeshot of the cobblestone streets and historic buildings which line Savannah’s riverfront, dating as far back as the 1700s.
The community itself is bordered on three sides by a world class golf layout and on the fourth by a pristine branch of the Savannah River which teams with fish.
Savannah’s storied Hutchinson Island was originally the city’s “reserve” for breeding cattle and horses, and then later a place for growing vegetables and cultivating rice. Today it is home of the 115- acre Reserve at Savannah Harbor as well as the prestigious Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Greenbrier Spa.
Conde Nast Traveler Magazine has included The Club at Savannah Harbor among its “Top 100 Golf Resorts in the United States,” and Golf Digest awarded it a “Four Star Best Places to Play.
The golf club, which opened in November 1999, is home of the PGA’s Champions Tour, Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf Tournament which is held annually for senior tour players in mid-April. The 27-year-old tournament, which offers a $2.5 million purse, and which moved to The Club at Savannah Harbor in 2003, has just extended its contract with the Legends Tournament through 2010.
The course itself, an 18-hole championship layout of more than 7,300 yards, is a Robert Cupp/Sam Snead design and unfolds in a classically traditional manner over a rolling marsh and riverfront acreage that is true beauty to behold.
The Greenbrier Spa is an elegant, fullservice European-style spa that is the firstever off site location of the famous original Greenbrier at White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia. Moreover, the Atlantic beaches of Tybee Island are a short 20-minute drive to the East.
However, what sets The Reserve at Savannah Harbor apart from other residential and second-home choices which feature golf is its remarkable location just five minutes from the vibrant downtown streets and picturesque squares of one of America’s most treasured cities.
Residents of this community will be able to choose to drive across the majestic Talmadge Bridge which connects Savannah to the South Carolina Lowcountry and nearby Hilton Head Island – or when visiting downtown can traverse the 500 yard stretch across the Savannah River on a free ferryboat that runs seven days a week.
For people who want to combine the atmosphere of delightful cafes, cultural performances, boutique shopping and a vibrant night life – all key ingredients of Savannah living – together with a relaxed, laid-back countryside lifestyle of a classic home overlooking a golf fairway, then this is the ideal place.
