Haven't played here since last November. Overall, the course is always a nice day on the links. Tee Boxes, Fairways were in good shape. The drought for months, and then the rain we had showed on the greens but what can you do? The on course amenities are slacking some. No one where you drop off your clubs, no starters, and no rangers. They were needed that day because it was fairly busy when we teed off at 1pm, and the pace was slow after the hole #4. They did have a beverage cart out when we started, but it disappeared after they passed us on hole # 2. Over-All it's still an enjoyable course.

Staff was very friendly at check in....course conditions very good...greens rolled true and fast...fairways in good shape.....only negative was pace of play....we had four very slow players in front of us who did not have a clue. There was no sign of a ranger to speed up play. Other than that we lived the course...great views of the tidal marsh....would definitely return

I am a former member of Laurel Island Links. I did not renew simply because I knew I was going to be involved in other things this year that would limit my playing time significantly. This is a hidden gem of a course. Great layout. It has some great golf holes. But, it doesn't beat you up. Course was in good condition. Greens were iffy in spots. Sand traps need sand. You bottomed out thus making sand play more difficult. This course needs to be advertised on I-95 from the Jax airport to Exit 29 in Georgia. The members are very friendly and welcoming. The staff is very courteous and friendly. The bar staff is friendly and serves you with a smile. Kitchen needs to be enlarged and updated. Folks you don't want to miss out on a golf course this special. Is it perfect? No, but it could be if they got the play to enable the owners to put a little more money into the infrastructure. This is a great place and you will have a wonderful experience. Make this your golf home. You will not regret it.

The fairways were in good shape but the greens need some work. It is probably just because of the drought this time of year. Once the rain starts, the greens will hopefully fill in nicely.

Second time at Laurel Island Links. Gorgeous layout with beautiful views on a sunny day. Very friendly staff. Did notice some issues with a few greens, but still worth the trip from Saint Simons. Fairly priced.

Enjoyed playing this course, nice layout and course is in good condition. One draw back was when I got to one of the tee box on the back nine the sprinklers were on in the box, and the maintenance guy did not cut them off, so I had to wait several minutes before I could tee off.

My husband & I love this course. We try to go about 3 times a month from Jacksonville, Fla. The people in the pro shop are fantastic & even the 19th hole has good sandwiches. We never feel like we are being rushed & no one has ever jumped Infront of you on the 10th tee. We play this challenging course in 3-4 hrs.. Enjoy the scenery while you play this course, we have seen gators every time we have played. The price is also great.To the staff keep up the great work !!!

Played this on a Wednesday at 10:30 and did not see a soul until #13. Course is in pretty decent condition. A couple greens and fairways could use some work but we are coming right out of winter and have been in a drought. Other than that a real fun course.
