New Members at The Ford Are Warmly Welcomed

When you become a member of The Ford, you’ll see how existing members go out of their way to introduce themselves to you. Our new members are welcomed into our private community with open arms — there truly are no strangers at The Ford. 

New member welcome receptions are held twice per year, serving as an opportunity to socialize with one another, and our Meet & Eat program pairs new members with longtime members through dinner parties at one another’s homes. Kindness radiates between adults and children alike, an embodiment of Southern hospitality that can only be found at The Ford.


Exceptional Standards of Hospitality

Not only is Southern hospitality felt among our members at The Ford, but also among the staff. Led by General Manager John Johnstone, our staff has a genuine heart for hospitality. With a level of familiarity that’s truly unmatched. Staff members go out of their way to ensure every one of your needs is met from the moment you step foot on the property. Members show gratitude for staff through ongoing kindness and respect.


A Spirit of Kindness Among All

Our mission at The Ford involves positively impacting the lives of our community and their families, and all who work here, by deepening their connection with each other. Because of this promise among all, our community is filled with some of the most genuine and welcoming people you’ll ever meet.

Our members take care of each other – if there’s a family emergency, members rally around and do what they can to help – from cooking food, walking the dog, driving members to appointments or picking up family from the airport and more. When there’s an occasion to celebrate, our members are there to toast to the good times and recognize special memories made right in the moment.

Here at The Ford, our members thrive on each other’s company. The Ford hosts exclusive, members-only events, like Cookies & Cocktails at The Main House, seasonal oyster roasts, nature hikes, book clubs, and much more to help our members stay connected. Outside of our hosted events, many members meet on their own for golfing, fishing, or dinner in neighboring Savannah.

At The Ford Field & River Club, Southern hospitality is a cornerstone of what makes our community exceptional. See more reasons you’ll love living at our private, coastal Lowcountry community in Why We Chose The Ford: Video Highlights Experience of New Member Family.
