Savannah Golf Club, The1661 E President St
Savannah, GA 31404
This club was first established in 1794 and has been listed by the USGA as the second oldest golf club in the U.S. In addition, "GOLF Magazine" recognized it in their 1995 list of "The First 100 Clubs in America." The tree-lined course has plenty of sand bunkers, ditches and berms incorporated into its design. The fairways are rolling, causing many uneven lies. George Cobb redesigned this course in 1963, and again with John LaFoy in 1977.

|Although relatively short in length, the Savannah Golf Club is a typical Donald Ross design in that it demands use of all clubs in your bag and the ability to shape shots. The greens are generally small, slope up from front to rear, and can be very slick. Shots ending above the hole can easily turn into 3-putts. All of the par-5's are reachable in two shots to low-handicap, long hitters, but more birdies on these holes generally result from well-placed 1st and 2nd shots and agressive 3rd shot sand wedges. Holes 1, 2, 4, and 6 are demanding par-4's that most good golfers are happy to score par on. There is only 1 par-5 on the front and 3 on the back, and the par-4's on the back are also less demanding, making the inward 9 at least 3 or 4 strokes easier than the front side. Low-handicappers can expect a minimum of 4 or 5 birdies in a good round, but bogies and double-bogies can sneak up and bite you on even the most seemingly benign holes. Finally, there are many good players and the members here can expect to play their round in less than 4 hours.|
