Welcome to the Savannahs

The Savannahs at Sykes Creek is a golf community located in Merritt Island, Florida, adjacent to the Kennedy Space Center and only a few miles from the world-famous Cocoa Beach and the major cruise terminals at Port Canaveral. The Savannahs consists of 288 home sites, integrated within a world-class 18-hole, 6,450 yard, Par 72 championship golf course. The community and golf course lie adjacent to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and are surrounded by wetlands and nature. An abundance of waterfowl, migrating birds, subtropical plants, and other local flora and fauna abound in The Savannahs. As of 2018, The Savannahs Homeowners Association was ceded responsibility for the Savannahs Golf Course,which is now being managed by the HOA Board of Directors .


Savannahs Important: COVID-19 Message to Savannahs Homeowners ->

The Local Pub Has Closed

It may come as little surprise to you that the Board of Directors has determined that maintaining a restaurant operation under the present circumstances is not tenable. The ability to generate any revenue while still adhering to State requirements is not feasible for either our resident-customers or the guests who visit our golf course. Therefore, the Local Pub has closed as of Monday evening, March 23.

Until the present situation is resolved, sandwiches and snacks will be sold in the Pro Shop, along with water and soft drinks (the bar is also closed until further notice, in accordance with State directives). Once the current restrictions are lifted (at a time unknown), the restaurant and bar operation will be re-evaluated.

Savannahs HOA next meeting postponed to May 18, 2020, 7:00 pm (location/type TBD)


Golf Course Beautification

First impressions are important. Volunteers are needed to help spruce up areas around the golf course such as weeding small areas, re-positioning plants, and re-painting Stiles.
