  • This is an exciting time for our community. Owners soon will have the opportunity to vote to ensure the continued prosperity of The Landings. For our newer owners, we are unique, in that to increase our required Annual Dues, we need approval from at least two-thirds of owners who vote.
  • This vote is about maintaining our infrastructure and service levels. It is not about adding services or expanding amenities.
  • Voting packets will be mailed March 15.
  • The Landings Association’s annual paving project has gotten off to a good start this year.
  • Another project you soon will notice is fiber internet being installed by Coastal Communications. Coastal Communications plans to begin installing the “backbone” of the network within the next month.
  • A final project of note is the current installation of a “bubbler” curtain in the Landings Harbor Marina basin.
  • If you ever need something, please let me know ( And please cast a “Yes” ballot for the Annual Dues Vote!

  • Each year, The Landings Association engages a local firm to conduct an annual audit of our financials. Currently, the Association uses the firm Holland, Bromley, Barnhill & Brett (HB3).
  • An unmodified audit opinion was issued for 2022. There were no audit findings or issues encountered during the engagement.
  • For those who don’t dwell in audit lingo, those are good things! The ending members equity balance as of December 31, 2022, totals $12,185,708, with an additional $9,745,121 recorded in deferred revenue-reserves.
  • Though our Covenants do not require the annual audit, our Board Policy Manual has included this best practice to provide assurance to our members that their money is being managed in a fiscally responsible manner that conforms to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

  • If you’ve followed any of The Landings Association’s Public Works Capital Projects since 1999, breathed a sigh of relief knowing Chatham Emergency Services (CES) has The Landings covered, or had a great time partying at the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Savannah, then you have reaped the benefits of a few of Bob Egan’s volunteer efforts.
  • Egan and his wife, Joyce, purchased property in The Landings in 1990 and became Landings Golf & Athletic Club Members in 1993.
  • Egan was introduced to The Landings by a colleague who also was an avid golfer.
  • When they purchased their first property, he still was employed full-time as a corporate executive with AT&T.
  • Located in Brussels at the time of his employment, he was responsible for Europe and the Middle East.
  • However, the siren calls of The Landings, with its six golf courses and coastal charm, finally lured the couple to the community full-time in 1996.
