Sebastian Hills Golf Club is tucked away in the rolling hills of the countryside, enjoying an idyllic landscape that is peaceful and secluded. Five lakes dot the course, providing interesting water hazards, and there is also a stream that meanders alongside many of the holes. The rolling terrain requires golfers to navigate their balls across a deep, intimidating gorge not once but twice. Golfers will also run into uneven lies and the occasional blind shot. In addition to the water hazards, there are more than 65 bunkers strategically placed along the greens. There are mature trees throughout the golf course except on the five Scottish-style links holes. Sebastian Hills Golf Club offers an interesting variety of holes that will appeal to a wide range of skill levels and tastes. There is also a twelve-acre driving range available for practice.

Great layout but needs attention and pricing update

We have played Sebastian for many years, it is a great layout with decent greens. Fairways and tee boxes have gotten better but still need attention. Sand traps are now hazards and this course is no longer on GHIN to use for your handicap. Yet they charge the same price or more as other nicer courses in the area????? I play there only occasionally now (once/twice a month) vs a couple a times a week in previous years.

This course is trying to make a comback

This course used to be very nice and has fallen to owners wanting to sell. All bunkers were overgrown and were ground under repair. Pace of play is what upset us more then anything the course was not crowded at all and for a holiday it was shocking. We were the only foursome on the course and although the course needs all the golfers it can get we got real tired of letting twosomes and singles through it took us over 4 hours to play when it should not have taken more then three with the very few players that were on the course. We let 4 twosomes and two singles play through trying to do the right thing but got real annoying having someone always wanting through.

Worst I've seen

No tee markers, tee boxes were like hitting out of the deep rough, fairways pretty much non existent, greens were like putting on a fairway. Bought a group golfer for $20 and still way oberpayed. Parking lot was empty once we started golfing it became apparent why! This course was horrible, my brother and I both bought 2 of the group golfers, used 2 the other 2 will not be used, not worth the gas money to get to the place.

Are you kidding me

I have been playing here for a number of years and it has gotten better each year.......until this year. I was shocked with the conditionof the course. Unmowed,so many weeds you couldn't find your ball in the so called fairways. Its a shame because the layout of the course is really nice. But this year it is unplayable. The worse is seeing the ads on golf channel and all the unknowing players who go out there and play. Spend the money on the course

Promising Purchase

I was hoping for better coarse conditions, but after visiting the restroom and seeing the flyer on the wall, I understood the reason. This very nice older couple have obviously owned this coarse for many, many years and were wanting to retire. The gentleman I spoke with when my son and I first arrived, reminded me of my own grandfather and treated us as if he had known us for years. They are currently looking for someone to purchase their sprawling 165 acre gem that has obviously been part of their life for along time.We had a challenging day with weedy tee boxes and fairways. The greens were very nice for this time of year but abit slow like a wet kitchen sponge. This coarse, I'm sure with a little love, will once again be an enjoyed challenge.

Cow pasture

I went through Group Golfer and got a big discount, with that being said it was not a good experience. ZERO tee markers to tell you where to tee off. When I got the Group Golfer coupons, there was no mention of this problem. I guess I should be happy they had flags on the green. I won't be back.

Hadn't played this course for some time now, four of us played Monday and enjoyed it so much we played again Friday. One of the players that played said. he read bad reviews about the course. they did have a tee box that wasn't so great and a lot of crab grass but then who don't. you are really missing out if you you don't give it a shot. It could be the people that can't hit a ball straight.

Not what it used to be

The course has really gone downhill in recent years. The greens were about the only decent thing about the shape of the golf course. They did rule true however they are disease. It's clear that the owner has given up on the golf course and is ready to sell. Even playing on Labor Day weekend when historically it is a busy time of year, the parking lot was nearly empty and we were able to play as a twosome without seeing hardly anyone else. The fairways and tee boxes we're just as long as the rough comma in the fairways were just as bad.
