Why Savannah

Why Savannah

Savannah has a rich history of sports dating back to when the city was founded in 1733. The city is home to one of the oldest golf clubs and gun clubs in America.  We have been watching baseball at Grayson Stadium since 1904, and today you can go cheer on the Savannah Bananas, a member of the Coastal Plain League.  Savannah also hosted some of the earliest racing events in America known as the Great Savannah Races of 1908 and 1910.

Today, Savannah builds on that tradition by hosting numerous events, headlined by the Rock ’n’ Roll Savannah Marathon & Half Marathon, Savannah Tire Hockey Classic and Enmark Savannah River Bridge Run. The Savannah Sports Council organizes and supports more than 35 different sporting events annually, giving everyone a taste of what makes Savannah a special and unique destination.
