February is early spring at Savannah Lakes Village, and the days have been quite pleasant. Sightings of our abundant wildlife and scenic views continue to delight us. The moon and stars are so clearly visible here, we spend many evenings by the fire pit and bask in the beauty of this place.
High temperatures this month range from the 50s to the mid-70s, permitting an array of outdoor activities. Savannah Lakes Village-already budding with early vernal flowers-is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts.
Golfers play year-round at Savannah Lakes Village. The official WGA and MGA seasons kicked off yesterday, and Masters Week is just around the corner. The Masters (April 3rd-11th) is the perfect time to plan a visit and Play the Lake at Monticello and Tara.
February is one of the best months to catch crappie and catfish at Lake Thurmond. Although best known for its Striper, Crappie, and hybrid striped bass, Lake Thurmond is also home to three types of catfish (Channel, Blue, and Yellow). At least two of the catfish breeds and the striper have been known to exceed 50 pounds here.

Hiking is a part of daily life for many Savannah Lakes Village residents. Planned group hikes are a great way to meet neighbors and make new friends. The Outdoor Adventure Club hosts several hikes each spring and fall. One upcoming trek will traverse the new Monticello nature trails.
The toughest part about living amidst 101,000 acres of protected land and water is mustering the fortitude to go indoors. Whether it's enjoying the magic of our own backyards, golfing, fishing, kayaking, hiking, or paddleboarding, Savannah Lakes Village residents have more to do than there are hours in the day. Our only complaint is that making time for household chores continues to be an act of discipline.
