Kicking The Tires- Discovering
Savannah Lakes Village
According to David Skidmore, one of the best ways to take a look at properties and amenities is by
enjoying a three-day/two-night “stay and play” package. “It’s great to be able to kick the tires.” He
adds that “on day one you spend about an hour with an overview of the general area, and on day two you can take a tour of the golf courses and amenities.”
Savannah Lakes Village invites prospective residents to experience what it’s like to be a member of the club by staying in one of their townhomes and enjoying two rounds of golf on each of their courses (Tara and Monticello). Guests also enjoy the 23,000 sq. ft. recreation center that includes classes, swimming pools, fitness room, bowling alley, as well as tennis and pickleball courts.
David says, “It’s one of the best kept secrets in the Southeast. You just can’t beat the value for the amenities.” The property owners association owns all of the amenities. Savannah Lakes Village has a la carte amenities, so you just pay for the amenities that you use.
David retired a year ago while he and his wife Diana were living in Atlanta. They thought that Atlanta
was just getting overcrowded, so they sold their home and bought a larger one on the eighth tee with a lake view for $100k less at Savannah Lakes Village. The Skidmores had taken two to three trips before they decided to buy.
Boaters of all kinds are attracted to the 71,000-acre Lake Thurmond. With over 1,200 miles of shoreline,
overcrowding is never a problem. The Skidmores love living on the lake. They bought a pontoon boat with one of their friends, and they share the boating costs and usage right down the middle.
David was so impressed with the community that he decided to get his real estate license last year and
share his excitement with others looking for an active lifestyle.
