Announcing the First Home On The Course

Discovery Weekend

The Landings, Savannah, GA


        Over recent months, we have asked visitors to this site to indicate their personal preferences for the location of their future golf community home.  After tabulating more than 100 votes, the results are clear:  Almost 43% of those who voted prefer a coastal location, besting the second choice of “lake oriented” by 23 percentage points.

        The coast has the most, according to our readers, and therefore we

The Landings residents own the six golf courses and the on-site real estate office, providing some extra financial stability.

are pleased to announce the first ever Home On The Course Discovery Weekend, December 1 to 4 at The Landings on Skidaway Island, just 15 minutes from downtown Savannah and adjacent to the marsh that leads to the Atlantic Ocean.  The weekend, which is available to the first 15 couples* who sign up, includes lodging in a privately owned home, two rounds of golf for each couple, two dinners and a tour of the 4,800-acre community.  Cost per couple is $599; however, because each private home features multiple bedrooms, couples sharing a house with another couple they invite will pay just $449 per couple for the weekend.

        The Landings is one of the most financially stable golf communities that we have visited; its residents not only own the community and its amenities but also the Landings Realty Company, the real estate firm located just inside the gates.  The private golf courses at The Landings include designs by Tom Fazio, Arnold Palmer and Arthur Hills.  All other amenities, including tennis, swimming pools, fitness centers and boating through the adjacent marsh, are available to Landings residents.

        Transportation to The Landings, which is located just 26 miles from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, will be the responsibility of each couple attending the Discovery Weekend.  Golf carts will be available to guests while on site for travel around the community.  Landings officials and your editor will be available throughout the weekend to answer questions and provide optional visits to individual properties currently for sale.

        If you would like to register to attend the Discovery Weekend or have questions about it, please contact us by clicking here and indicating your interest in the message box.  Even if you have not considered the Savannah area for your future vacation or retirement home, you will be pleasantly surprised at all The Landings has to offer.  The deadline to sign up is November 1.  We look forward to seeing you at The Landings the first weekend in December.

        (Please note:  With airline prices lowest 21 days in advance, those flying to Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport should consider making reservations early in November.)


* single participants invited as well.

This blog was conceived and is published by me, Larry Gavrich, a former corporate communications executive who founded HomeOnTheCourse, LLC, in 2005.  Our firm advises baby boomers and others seeking a lifestyle in which golf is a major component.  My wife Connie and I own a home in Connecticut (not on a golf course) and a condo at Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC, on a Jack Nicklaus layout.  We began our search for our home on the course more than 15 years ago, and the challenges of the search inspired me to research golf communities and write objective reviews of them.
