Helpful staff, enjoyable round

I am visiting here from Pa and playing a few rounds in February. Every single person working here was helpful and kind. Much appreciated. The greens were I. Really good shape for this month, rolled excellently and consistently. This front nine are wood lined and the back more near the waterway and the back nine was notably more wet. I plugged quite a few shots but that’s not a criticism, it’s the area.

The practice areas were tops, the bar looked well equipped but I didn’t use it.

The course was a good variety of movements and distances. I lost a few balls, my own mistakes. The traps were in good shape and the staff was out pick8ng up divots off the tee and filling and planting the driving range. They seemed to care about the course conditions. The only bad areas was some waste bunkers which some say never should be touched, were a bit worn but then I shouldn’t be able to play a clean iron shot out of them. Just one guys opionion. Some of the tee boxes were a bit worn but it seems normal for a wet course in a wet region.

I really liked the course and my round. It’s not a resort, but I have issues with those prices. I felt this a decent cours and round.

Fantastic

Course and staff were fantastic. I called because I had read some negative reviews. Scott, pro, let me know ahead of time that the greens had been airated about two weeks earlier. The course was still in great shape. I highly recommend the course if you are in the area.

Don’t Blink

The pro shop staff gave a friendly welcome and on a day when local storms kept the crowd away, invited me to play an hour early while keeping my twilight rate. There is nothing offensive about the course but nothing special either. The romantic journey you’re led to expect on the Intercoastal Waterway is limited to one hole, the 13th, followed by a par three shot over a grassy marsh, and younever see the water again. That attraction is oversold and disappointing.

A bot of a let down

Had read so many positive things about Stono Ferry, but the experience left us a little flat. Staff was flexible in that they let us move our tee time up due to predicted p.m. thunderstorms. Starter and ranger were great/friendly guys, and we even saw the ranger out on the course, which seems rare these days. Zipped through first 5 holes but then caught up to threesome in no hurry and who looked to be drinking in late morning. Luckily they stopped after 9. A few neat holes on back nine by the water. Some picturesque vistas. Fairways pretty thin, and greens spotty at best. Course conditions had been built up in previous reviews. Dormant grass also gave impression of a ratty course. Range was almost all dirt. Not horrible experience, but we felt price was more than a few dollars more than it should have been .

Beautiful Views

Course had a great layout that required you to use your whole bag and think off of the tee. front nine works its way around housing developments but still fun holes to play. Back nine is beautiful and has some very scenic holes. Played on a Saturday afternoon so pace of play wasn't great, but were still able to complete before sunset.

Great Course

To be honest I found this course similar to the Kiawah Island resort courses in quality. Great layout, great staff, and greens were in great shape and rolling true. Was playing well until the holes around the lake, play those smart and you can have a nice round. For the price compared to some of the others around it, I definitely like it.

Average course

This is run of the mill kind of course. You play and forget about it in a couple of day. Nothing standout. If you have some time to kill and are looking for something close by. This might be it.

Nice little town golf course

We enjoyed the hospitality at Stono Ferry especially from the restaurant workers and the starter who really helped us get off early to make sure we got to the airport early for our flight home. As for the course it was in good condition and the view from the 14th tee was worth the trip. The layout is interesting and a lot of the fairways seem to get more generous the further you hit the ball I.e. The 15th hole a hard dogleg left that visually looks intimidating off the tee with a tight looking shot but when you get to the fairway you see it is wide open. Beware of the trees that lean over the first cut and fairways as they will grab your ball and throw it back.

Great round

Played at Stono Ferry on a cool cloudy Monday. As a result course wasn't busy and I was sent out as a single. Played the whole course without seeing another person in front of me and really enjoyed myself. Payed $72 for the round. The guy in the pro shop was very nice and helpful. There was no one at the bag drop so I loaded up my on stuff on a cart and took off to the range. After hitting a few the ranger sent me on my way. Course was in great winter shape. Fairways were over seeded and greens were in good shape. A couple were a bit then, number 11 comes to mind. But they rolled really good. The front 9 is a good course. But nothing special. Some interesting angles and relatively tight fairways. The whole course is a good mix of tight and open, long and short, and big and small greens. I would say that most of the tee boxes were narrow and not a lot of teeing ground. The back 9 is what you pay for. While the front is nice the back is really cool. Couple of holes with some historical significance. Couple holes right on the river. Very cool holes. A couple holes on the back, I think 14 and 15. Maybe 13 and 14 you actually carry part of the river on your tee shot. Biggest complaint was the dadgum carts. The floor, steering wheel and seat were slick. Hands and feet kept slipping getting into and out of the cart. All in all it is a great course and a super cool round.

Stono Ferry

Excellent course outside of Charleston. Holes were challenging with varied layout. Played on Thanksgiving and staff was still very friendly. The back nine is very impressive with a little history thrown in on a couple holes.

All by myself...

Beautiful day, beautiful course, I never even saw another golfer. This may be out of the ordinary but wow. Peaceful, some awesome holes over some marshland by the river, par 4 and a par three from and isthmus tee box were really beautiful. Pays to be accurate here, not long

Charleston's most undervalued course

Great layout where every hole has character and presents a different challenge. Difficult but fair test as you must work the ball both ways off the tee and the green complexes are undulating. Views are some of the best in the area. One of the best courses in Charleston.

Wish It Were on GolfNow...

Played here straight up as GolfNow tee times here are rare. An historic course winding through the woods and marshes of the low country. Greens were bit thin but rolled well. Island green on #18.

Overrated

With the exception of a couple holes on the river the layout is pedestrian. Greens were bumpy and slow especially considering the time of year when most over seed greens are at their best. I would not go out of my way to play this course again.
