Fairway Oaks and the Greenview subdivisions are located in the heart of Savannah, near the intersection of DeRenne and Waters Avenue. Fairway Oaks and adjacent Greenview were two of the first neighborhoods to break the pre-war grid pattern of street layouts. The beautiful, tree-lined streets wind around curvilinearly feature a few cul-de-sacs and two perimeter roadway. Fairway Oaks and Greenview Historic District were placed on the National Registry for Historic Places in 2009.
Where the locals go to eat:
Just up Waters Avenue is one of our favorite restaurants, BowTie Barbecue. If you love Savannah History, you will love that some of the favorite menu items from the late Johnny Harris Restaurant are on this menu! Our favorites are the Batterless Fried Chicken (gluten-free and prepared in a dedicated gluten-free fryer!) and the 1924 Salad with the olive tapenade. They have a great selection of barbecue, bourbons, and beer. Try the BBQ Poutine for a real treat!
Shopping and Attractions:
Bacon Park Golf course is adjacent to these neighborhoods and is owned by the City of Savannah. The course was originally designed by Donald Ross in 1926. It was fully renovated in 2014. Each hole on the course is named to describe the hole’s character in the overall layout. The first nine include Getaway, Hogback, Lowland, Overbrook, Crooked Valley, Blind Tom, The Stretch, Long View, and Dead Aim. The second nine features The Narrows, No-Foolin, Canal, Sore Thumb, Spitball, Belly Acres, Triangle, The Oak, and Home. The course itself is a brilliantly conceived illustration of all of the characteristics of Donald Ross’ genius. Some of the most beautiful trees in the city call their home the Bacon Park Golf Course.
Most of the homes in Fairway Oaks and Greenview were built in the 1950s and ’60s. Like the layout of the neighborhood, the homes of Fairway Oaks broke away from the traditional pre-war bungalows of Savannah. The homes are predominantly Split-Levels, Ranches, Colonial Revivals and Mid-Century Moderns. Greenview features home types similar to Fairway Oaks, but in general are larger and more architecturally elaborate.
