Played Southbridge many times and the review is almost the same. Course was wet from last week's snow and some fairways should have been cart path only. Cart paths still atrocious.

Traps were better maintained throughout the course which is a complaint of mine at Southbridge. Only one trap was hardpacked sand that I could remember.

Will play again here with great rates for a good layout.

Always enjoy this course. Love the layout and never had any issues with pace of play. Today played in ~3 hours. Course is in great shape except for the cart paths are a little roughs in spots (believe they are working on these). Will definitely play here again and again.

It's a shame the owners don't realize what they've got...this course could be the best course in Savannah...but as the years go by its starting to deteriorate. It is 6900 from back tees but has several playable tees for all golfers. The layout is absolutely great...doglegs, elevations, long holes, short holes. Greens not bad. Fairways just ok. Rough and outer course areas not so good. Carts are terrible, cart paths getting very bad, heaving and cracking. Even in this avg condition I still recommend it

First of all I have played many courses in the area over the last four years since I originally moved to Savannah, but time and again the layout of this place just can't be beat. Not incredibly long at 6,900 yards, however, if you think you can play loose out here then you could be in a little trouble. I alway start with reviewing the greens as they are in my opinion the most important part of the golf course. While they are pretty slow at south bridge, they fairly true to line even nearing the end of the year like now. The majority of the tee boxes were in great shape. Course played firm and fast pretty much all day but you could certainly hold shots on the green. I will say the overall course conditions were a fair 3/5 but the layout of this place is just so much fun. Beautiful tall trees line the holes and there are obstacles to maneuver but if you play smart then you will be in for a more than enjoyable round of golf.

We played a four ball, I was the only one who had played the course before. We came from saint simons island ga. We had to get out of town as a friend was being thrown a surprise birthday party & we had to go missing for 10 hours. After we had booked the course we noticed a lot of bad reviews on golf advisor & a friend of mine was not looking forward to it, but we were all pleasantly surprised it was a lot better than the reviews. Fairways were nice & the greens true & pretty quick, wel'll be back.

Looks like the new owners aren't spending any money on maintenance. Grass and weeds overgrown all over the course and around the clubhouse. Tree branches still down after the storms over two weeks ago. Concrete cart paths in terrible condition. Reese Jones must be rolling over in his grave.

Played this course many times and I submit the same review. Great layout, rates and staff but traps and cart paths are atrocious.

Maintenance on the traps would go a long way to improve this course. I saw very few that were playable and the hurricane had nothing to do with it. The cart paths would be better if they were pulverized and not repaved.

Course is great otherwise. Make these changes and you'll have one of the best courses in the area.

I've played here many times and love the layout. However, many bunkers needed tending to the point you couldn't be expected to play out of them. It had rained a lot recently so the course was wet and places weren't mowed because of it.

The cart paths are so terrible many ride in the grass or creep down the hole. This issue needs to be addressed asap as it's been this way for many years.

I will continue to play here but hope better things are in the future.

I got to Southbridge early in the morning and headed out to avoid the heat. I found the fairways and greens were well maintained, even with a lot of recent rain. The rough wasn't too tough, but could be challenging. The bunkers were mostly in rough shape, but some of the greenside bunkers had been kept in great shape which was a nice touch. I found the course layout very interesting and varied. The pro was very nice and friendly in the morning.

I enjoying plying the course but it appears to be a once nice course that needs some money. The layout is challenging and scenic but the course is not in good shape. We played it in the heat of the afternoon so the discounted rate certainly made it worth it. Has great potential but needs influx of cash to make it nice again.

The course layout was great. The greens and fairways were nice. The rough is thick and needed to be maintained alittle better. Tee boxes were nice. The bunkers were bad. Many were flooded out. The cart path was horrible. Washed out or flooded in a lot of places. The driveing range is rough and needs to be taken care of. The facilities and staff were nice. Overall it's a nice course and the price is appropriate. I would recommend it if in the area if u want a good value course.

Results may vary, but if the greens are in good shape this course is fun. Not a terribly unique layout, but not boring either. Biggest gripe is how slow it can be on weekends, but without rangers or starters that is pretty standard in Savannah.
