HISTORY

Savannah has a rich history of golf, with golf and athletic clubs appearing as early as the 1800s. Tournament golf has visited Savannah since at least the 20’s and 30’s, including the 1930 Savannah Open where Bobby Jones lost by one stroke to Horton Smith. Later that year Jones went on to win the Grand Slam, still the first and only player to complete the task in a single season.

The Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf, contested at The Club at Savannah Harbor, had a successful 11-year run from 2003-2013 and was a popular stop on the PGA TOUR Champions schedule. Field regulars included Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, and Savannah native Gene Sauers.

The inaugural Club Car Championship at The Landings Golf & Athletic Club was contested March 29 – April 1, 2018 and highlighted by 5 time PGA TOUR winner Sam Burns hoisting the trophy on Sunday.
