The Ford Field & River Club brings together the charm of Southern hospitality and the allure of the finest coastal sporting club in the nation. Yet, what makes our recipe for the magic of Lowcountry living all the more uncommon is our close proximity to one of the country’s most celebrated destinations for art, culture, dining, history, music and shopping — Savannah, Georgia.
Renowned for its friendliness, architecture and variety of attractions and activities, Savannah was recently voted one of the “Best Cities in the United States” by the 2023 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. In their honoring of the moody, mossy city, Condé Nast Traveler celebrated Savannah’s picture-perfect scenery.
Walk along the city’s cobblestoned historic district and ornate architecture, and find shade under live oak trees drooping with Spanish moss, the article suggests for a quintessential Savannah moment. “And for a fantastic dining experience, go to The Grey, an elegantly reborn former Greyhound Bus depot, where James Beard Award–winning chef Mashama Bailey serves elevated takes on Southern classics, like foie gras and grits and tempura-fried catfish.”
Savannah was also recently hailed as one of Southern Living’s “Best Places To Retire In The South,” especially for those interested in arts and culture. As Cyndi and Chuck Seidel, who lived in Salt Lake City but always knew they’d retire in the South, told Southern Living, “We loved Savannah from day one.”
On top of these honors, Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) was recently voted “#1 Airport in the U.S.” for the fourth consecutive year by the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Just three right turns from The Ford’s front gates, SAV makes for a breezy entry to Lowcountry life from anywhere in the country. If you find yourself in SAV’s baggage claim upon arrival, be sure to keep an eye out for The Ford’s latest video playing on the nearby screens.
Only a short and scenic 30-minute drive from The Ford’s 1,800 picturesque acres, Savannah combines a rich appreciation for heritage and culture with a spirited energy of modern leisure. When it comes to the welcoming nature of Southern charm, one of the first places that comes to mind is The Ford’s northeast neighbor of Savannah.
