Savannah Lakes Village (SLV) is a master-planned lifestyle community located on the shores of Lake Thurmond in McCormick, South Carolina. The community boasts tremendous outdoor recreation features from the lake to the three nearby state parks and beyond — all of this is frequently enjoyed by the more than 2,500 residents (as of summer 2020) who call SLV home and thousands of other property owners across the country who visit as often as they can. Hundreds of members and their guests work on their golf game at the Tara and Monticello golf courses each week. Guests are welcome to make a tee time, but what are your options for lodging if you are planning to travel and visit? Can you enjoy a few days at Savannah Lakes Village without having a close friend host you in their home?
Note: In view of the postponement of the 2020 Masters tournament, we are suspending our booking process for Masters Week tee times. Thank you for your understanding.
If you’re headed to Augusta to take in the spectacle that is Masters Week, you’re among a lucky group of golf fans. And if you’re an avid golfer looking for a tee time in Augusta during Masters Week, you’re probably going to be frustrated initially. But don’t worry…we’re here to help.
If you’re lucky enough to have won the lottery, you’re probably thinking about travel during Masters Week in April. For those of us who aren’t as familiar, we’re not talking about a huge cash prize worth millions of dollars (though for some it feels that way!). We’re talking about the selection process for tickets to the Practice Rounds and the Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club.
Ah, the first full week in April — Masters Week! It’s the Rite of Spring that awakens a deep longing in the heart of every golfer. We join the chorus of awe at the spectacle of the tournament at Augusta National Golf Club. It’s a joy to behold, and we realize how fortunate we are to be positioned less than an hour away from this incredible event.
Our men’s Member/Guest Invitational Tournament is an annual affair, one that we look forward to every year.
The 2018 Member/Guest event kicked off on a balmy Thursday, October 4 and concluded Saturday, October 6. Our roster of players and guests included fathers and sons, brothers, friends, and even a few former neighbors. The guests hailed from 17 different states from coast to coast, and one guest even traveled from Switzerland. Our agenda included a chipping and putting contest, two full rounds of competitive golf, a final playoff for the flight winners, and no less than 8 different meals and social events. Our lakefront courses, Tara and Monticello were on full display during a couple of days of nearly ideal golf weather — even if a touch on the warm side.
This is a beloved time of spirited competition and fellowship, both on and off the course! It’s difficult to convey the essence of the experience at Member/Guest. But from our members’ individual hospitality efforts to the SLV team, it is an all-hands-on-deck opportunity to show our guests what it is like to live and play at SLV.
Our marketing director captured hundreds of images from the golf and social events, and we have curated a few to share here:
