Why Summer at The Ford is a Magical Time of Year

Published on

Summer’s here—and with it, the return of sun-filled days spent enjoying the outdoors at The Ford Field & River Club. Adventures abound in every corner of The Ford, whether it’s boating and kayaking on the water or catching another round of golf at a moment’s notice. Kids out of school for the summer can join in on activities made for the whole family.

The near-perfect weather at our coastal Lowcountry community brings endless opportunities to savor the moment together with neighbors, friends and family. Take a look at the top activities happening at The Ford and the surrounding neighborhood this summer:

Summertime Events You Won’t Want to Miss—Exclusively at The Ford

Fill up your social calendar—every summer, The Ford hosts events for our members to enjoy. This month, we’ll be hosting a family-friendly burger night at Lake Dye Grill on Friday, July 29. Up next is our summer food truck coming August 9—also at members’ favorite spot, Lake Dye Grill.

Then, on August 13, our build-your-own chicken wings night gives members a chance to go classic or get creative with any combination of savory flavors! The season winds down at our end-of-summer block party on August 26, where members can enjoy a live band and Leopold’s famous ice cream while taking in sunset views from the Deepwater Marina.

Beyond our exclusive events, there’s more for our members to enjoy. No summer is complete without spending an afternoon at the Deepwater Marina and heading out for a day on the water. When the sun goes down, visit the Clubhouse for dinner overlooking the green of our award-winning golf course. Later, take a peaceful drive home and enjoy the sight of lightning bugs and the melodious chirps of crickets in your own private backyard.

Savannah’s Warm Southern Hospitality is Even Warmer in the Summer

The Ford is conveniently located close to all that Savannah has to offer. A city rooted in history and culture, Savannah is a favorite summer destination for travelers worldwide. Members of The Ford often make the short drive to the city and back—especially with all the summer fun to be had.

This season, enjoy the Savannah VOICE Festival during the first two weeks of August. Into spooky surprises? Catch an evening storytelling tour of Bonaventure Cemetery or join in on The Dinner Detective—an interactive comedy murder mystery dinner show. 

Carefree moments transform into nostalgic summertime memories—right here at The Ford. Now is the time to experience The Ford in person. Schedule your visit today and discover why families from around the nation are choosing to make our one-of-a-kind community in the Georgia Lowcountry their home.
