There are also lots of private homes surrounding the course. My first lesson was with the club's Pro. Greg Sanders, who recently achieved Professional Golfers' Association status. He uses a lot of different aids to help beginners including giving each pupil an 'Easy Way to Learn Golf' book which has lots of useful tips. As the course is also in an area deemed a nature reserve, I had the pleasure of seeing jumping fish in the lake, and a variety of unusual birds. Apparently, there are plenty of alligators in this area too, although I didn't see any. I also took lessons at a private course, La Cita Country Club where there is an elegant club house, and smart restaurant rather than the basic snack bar as at Savannahs. The course is particularly challenging as several of the holes have lakes strategically placed in front of them. La Cita also offers its members other facilities such as a swimming pool, tennis court, and fitness centre. The club is surrounded by villas, some of which can be rented for holiday lets, which includes use of all the club's amenities. Although outsiders aren't encouraged, it is possible to have a one-day guest membership, which costs nearly twice the price of playing at a public course. However, you do get the benefit of all the add-on facilities.
    Hotels in the area are scattered along the area's 72 miles of Atlantic coastline. Well-known brand names such as the three star Hilton and Holiday Inn cater for families by providing two double beds, and as you pay for the room, and not the amount of people, it can work out very economical. Do be careful, however, not to use the phone in the room, as the prices can be astronomical.
