The Savannahs Golf Course
Challenge the Savannahs. On the windward side of Merritt island lies one of the most unique golf courses on Florida's Space Coast. The 6,450 yard Gordon G. Lewis design winds through majestic hardwood forests, natural wetlands, and scenic lakes to reveal protected, undulated greens. Nine holes are framed by a natural savannah conservation area, bordered by hammocks with a high canopy of trees and coastal flatwoods. Water, in the form of natural wetlands and manmade lakes, comes into play on thirteen holes. The course boasts several unforgettable holes, such as the 525-yard, par 5 Signature 7th, regarded as one of the most challenging holes in Central Florida. This beautifully tight, typically southern course features six sets of tees, making play ideal for beginners and pros. The back tees are demanding even for the best of the best, while our new “Family Tees” are playable by anyone who wants to tee up. Prepare for your round by warming up on our practice facilities that include: unique aqua range, chipping and bunker area, and full-sized practice putting green. Look around during your visit, and you will notice nature's splendor on display. Our preserve features many water birds, birds of prey, reptiles, and low country mammals that make the savannahs their home. The fairways additionally offer a great view of the nearby Cape Canaveral rocket launches. Our southern plantation styled Clubhouse is a great place to start and end your day at The Savannahs. Inside you will find a golf shop, plus a bar and grill with great food and hospitality to match. Or, wander outside to the veranda overlooking the aqua range and golf course to catch the sunset.

Decent course on Merrit Island
Was looking for a decent course in the Cocoa Beach area and had read mixed reviews on the course.
Very windy conditions although being a bit sheltered inland helped. Lots of water and tight fairways. The greens had been recently sanded and were a bit rough in spots. They need to get the weeds off the greens. Some wet areas from recent rain, but not a bad experience overall. Would like to see more fairway grass but that will come hopefully in the weeks ahead. One foursome held up three groups behind and no Marshal to move them along. 4 1/2 hours which seemed longer as the back nine dragged on.
Andrew at the reception desk made the rain dance and we were able to play our 18 holes without rain as promised. We really enjoyed our game.
I felt like the deal we got on this course was a really good value. The greens are a bit sorry but the course was lovely and a bit tight. We enjoyed our round immensely.
Disappointed with condition
Have played this course many times in the past. Always had a nice time playing here and course used to be fairly well maintained. Since turning the course over to the homeowners it has taken a turn for the worse. Extremely poor maintenance if any at all. Greens were terrible with weeds growing on them and lack of grass. Fairways were also weedy , wet and cart ruts all over them. Tee boxes were fair. Would not return until they fund there maintiance account and hire a good company to manage the course.
Andrew was very nice when I arrived at the counter of the departures. The starter acknowledged us on a friendly manner and the pace of the play was excellent.
Course is showing other type improvements, however the greens are not quite puttable.
Thank you for the feedback regarding your recent visit. We hope to see you again this season for a second chance.
Good for the price paid
We got a $15 deal through Golfnow and for the $15, it was just ok. Anymore than $15 would have been too much.
The greens, for the most part were cut low (stimp 10) but contained many weeds. The fairways, most of them, contained weeds. On the 10th, the fairway was really full of weeds. They are doing some work out there, but it looks like it's at a standstill. They should try to kill the weeds before it's too late.
For the price, it was just ok.
The snowbirds will play it only once if the conditions remain the same as yesterday.
Thank you Vernon1946 for the five star rating!
Not worth it
Played his course yesterday as was grossly disappointed. Course hasn’t been maintained whatsoever. Greens were the worst I’ve ever seen.
Not Worth It
I golfed here today and can tell you the course is in rough shape! greens were some of the worst I've ever seen. Looks like it isn't taken care of at all. With a lot of options around the area i will not be back.
We had a lot of rain this past week so there were some places that were really messy. Course is really fun to play though.
Thank you u630902580 for the four star rating. We are glad the recent rain didn't affect your golf round. Hope to see you again soon this season.
The course was wet because they got about an inch of rain the night before. Usually, it is perfect and the issue was not the course's fault. Because of the course conditions, the staff gave us a 9-hole raincheck when they didn't have to.
I highly recommend the Savannah's. Great staff, plenty of drinking water on course, great scenery and nature, and a fair price for the challenge. This experience wasn't great, but it almost always is.
Thank you dpsingletary for the five star rating and review from your recent visit with The Savannahs. We are disappointed to hear that the weather wasn't in your favor, but hope you can join us again on another day where the weather is more forgiving.
