An hour drive from our vacation home made you feel as if you might be lost, but no complaints once we arrived. The course was very dry and hard (but you can't make it rain, so no one is to blame). It's a great layout with a little bit of marsh, a little water, a little woods, a little bit of everything. My wife shot her best score ever, so she loves it.

Sapelo Hammock is a gem! Very interesting layout and the hardest par 3's in the state with challenges over the marsh and interesting club selection situations. This place is a bargain. You must try it if you travel in the area. Great staff.

Enjoyed our round here. Friendly staff and good pace of play. Many of the holes were interesting and unique. The greens were a little rough but it was early spring. Would definately play here again. A little out of the way, but the price was reasonable.

Sapelo provides a good mix offairly easy holes as well as some challenging ones (for me at least) -- particularly the two 'over the marsh' par 3s that are essentially the same as hitting to an island green. A mild winter has left the course in good condition for this time of the year. Overall, a pleasant experience.

What a gem!! Best kept secret on the SE Georgia coast. I'm hesitant to brag this course up, for purely selfish reasons. ;)

Some of the greens were a tad rough in spots, but the overall experience was fantastic. Oh, and $5 for all-you-can-hit range balls off real grass is the BEST kept secret out there.

The challenging fairways, tee box club selection, lightning fast greens, and of course an amazing price, makes this course worth traveling to southeast Georgia. Come for the golf and enjoy some great scenery along the way!

No two holes the same. Was expecting better green conditions based upon recent reviews. Greens were inconsistent and some deseased greens. Would like to play it again when the greens are better.

One of the best courses in Georgia. Terrific layout with beautiful marsh views. Some forced carries. Has that coastal Georgia feel. Don't pass this course up you'll regret it.

So my buddy Niles and I decided to begrudgingly leave Saint Simons Island and play a different course. He's just discovered that there are courses that exist off of the island and gets excited about the "new world" hug still experiences anxiety when crossing the causeway. We were literally the only people on the course after 3 in the afternoon and had a blast just playing at a leisurely pace with plenty of time to relax, take our time, and hit our shots. The rough was pretty deep but the course was really in great shape and greens and fairways were green and fast. Hope you like hot dogs because that's all you're getting to eat but we will DEFINITELY be back here soon.
