Belfair was established in 1811 when William Telfair of Savannah married Betsey Bellinger. The Bellinger and Telfair names were united to name their new plantation. In the 1920’s Belfair’s new owner, William Mosely Swain, planted the oaks that now constitute the magnificent Avenue of Oaks. Today, Belfair is a private golf club community on approximately 1100 acres with 730 homesites and a maximum membership of 770.
