The Club at Savannah Harbor handles the golf equation in a party town.

Savannah is no golf mecca. It’s a party town, where St. Patrick’s Day and Halloween supplant national holidays. It’s a foodie’s delight, with fine dining of renown and local favorites for every taste. It has a demonstrably hip vibe, thanks to the Savannah College of Art and Design, which dominates downtown.

That’s not to say golf has no place in Savannah’s tourist equation. Indeed, The Club at Savannah Harbor is a peaceful respite from the party scene—and one of the most highly-regarded layouts in Georgia. Moreover, a thorough greens renovation that was completed in early September has elevated the Bob Cupp design back to the standard it maintained from 2003-13 as the host venue for the PGA Tour Champions’ Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf event.
