Savannah Lakes Village is a recreation-inspired lakefront community located at the confluence of Western South Carolina’s Freshwater Coast Region and the 71,000+ acre Lake Thurmond. The community features two member-owned golf courses, a recreation center, clubhouses, community docks, and much, much more.

Members and their guests enjoy a broad spectrum of special community events at our two clubs, the River Grille and Monti’s. Activities and social connections abound with daily programs at the recreation center, including a full suite of exercise equipment, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis, pickleball, bowling, and group instruction. We are surrounded by nature with many miles of forest trails and water trails to explore. Members are able to enjoy a healthy lifestyle with easy access to many forms of outdoor recreation, all the while staying connected for work and entertainment with one of South Carolina's best direct-to-the-home fiber optic broadband network.

South Carolina's Freshwater Coast is home to some of the nation's most scenic inland waterways and public lands offering an abundance of outdoor recreation activities. Savannah Lakes Village is bordered by 65,000-acres of public lands including state parks and national forests. The community also includes 25 miles of shoreline along the pristine 71,000+ acre Lake Thurmond. With easy access to over 150 miles land/water trails across the region, and it is easy to see that this is much more than your typical golf community.

In addition to a sports and fitness center, excellent dining services at the clubs, and the friendliest people you will ever meet, Savannah Lakes is home to some of the best golf courses in South Carolina. These award winning golf courses, carved from the rolling landscape wrapping Lake Thurmond, offer unique challenges and breathtaking vistas. The golf clubs at Savannah Lakes Village are known as some of the most scenic, challenging, and inspiring golf holes in the state. Your membership into both clubs is included with property ownership. Bordering Savannah Lakes Village is Hickory Knob Resort, offering a third lakefront golf course in the immediate area for residents of the community.

Savannah Lakes Village is an easy drive from the urban centers of Augusta, Greenville, Charlotte, Columbia, Charleston, and Atlanta. Centers for shopping, healthcare, arts/culture, and entertainment are a short drive from our community. Savannah Lakes Village also has a $3 million healthcare facility on site, which is owned and operated by Self Regional Hospital.

Despite a remarkable location and first-rate amenities, we’re sure that you will quickly discover our best asset to be something a little less tangible... such as the friendly, caring neighbors. Our village is a vibrant community where people interact and residents become more than just neighbors. New friends from across the nation quickly embrace the area’s contagious southern hospitality and charm. We look forward to welcoming you into our community of more than 2,400 residents who proudly call Savannah Lakes Village home.
