Play the Tara Golf Course

The Tara Golf Course masterfully meanders through the hillsides of the Sumter National Forest, around Lake Thurmond, and throughout the established community of Savannah Lakes Village. The rolling topography of the land is gradually exposed throughout your round, with stately oaks and pines perfectly framing each hole.
