Formed by 1,800 acres of storied land and waterways, The Ford Field & River Club is a private club community set along Georgia's great Ogeechee River. Here, families enjoy charming traditions of Southern hospitality paired with modern amenities and year-round outdoor pursuits.
With an ever-agreeable coastal climate, The Ford’s pace ebbs and flows with the tides of the river. Days are spent setting out from the Deepwater Marina, casting the morning away at your favorite fishing spot with your little one, teeing off at your own pace on the Pete Dye championship golf course, saddling up at the state-of-the-art Equestrian Center, or engaging up-close with wildlife at the Naturalist Center.
To call The Ford home means claiming a one-of-a-kind expression of Southern style. Five sprawling enclaves—comprising 400 residences and homesites—charm with regional architecture, some New Orleans French Colonials, others grand Southern manors and Charleston-style garden homes.
This 36-slip marina accommodates yachts up to 65 feet and sits on the Ogeechee River, just 20 nautical miles from the Atlantic and Intracoastal Waterway.
The award-winning, 250-acre Pete Dye-designed course is shaped by freshwater lakes, lush meadows and scenic coastline—and requires no tee times.
The historic 7,000-square-foot estate was Clara and Henry Ford’s lowcountry dream home and now serves as a community centerpiece, with its swimming pool, gardens, formal living and dining rooms and well-appointed guest suites.
The Ford’s state-of-the-art, 7-acre equestrian facility promises uncompromising horse care with a 22-stall barn, multiple arenas, a members' lounge and 10 miles of bridle trails.
This 7,000-square foot two-level fitness center offers squash courts plus personal training, yoga, spin classes and more. Nearby are three Har-Tru tennis courts, pickleball and basketball courts and heated and cooled swimming pools.
Preservation is a central tenet at The Ford, which actively maintains an Audubon Certification. Members can join the on-site staff naturalist for bird counts, gator tagging, educational activities and more.
The Ford’s waterways offer some of the finest fishing in the Southeast. Expert-led excursions explore our freshwater lakes, Ogeechee River frontage, Ossabaw Sound and the Intracoastal.
Revel in privileged access to the nearby Dorchester Shooting Preserve, which offers sporting clays and upland wing shooting.
Enjoy personalized massages, body treatments and customized facials plus a full-service hair salon.
Chef-led meals and an on-site marketplace draw upon fresh ingredients from land and sea. Members can bib up for community Oyster Roasts and savor refined fare at the Clubhouse.
While The Ford feels worlds away from the everyday, adventures and protected coastlines are close by. Find shops and essential conveniences in the neighboring Richmond Hill, or explore the cobblestone streets of Savannah, miles of nearby beaches and the Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge.
