About

Par 72
Length 7028
Slope 138
Rating 74.0
Type Semi-Private
The Golf Club at South Hampton was designed to give every golfer appropriate risk-and-reward opportunities that supply both encouragement to beginners and challenges for more advanced players. The slope and contour of the course’s landscape is its trademark with strategic mounding and over 60 contoured bunkers that emphasize the terrain’s natural undulations. The course features rolling fairways and massive greens. There are also sixteen large lakes that come into play throughout. The signature hole is the tremendous par-5, 17th, which is a scenic hole that features a lake, fairway bunkers, and a breaking green. Although the course is a challenge, there are six sets of tees to accommodate all skill levels.

Fix the bunkers!

Played here in a FSGA one day event. Even though the course was soaked we were forced to play the ball down. Bunkers were basically unplayable as they were either mud or had standing water. That cost me at least four strokes right there.

The practice green speeds were much slower than the course itself, so that cost me at least nine more strokes. Too many three putts to count.

So many tree roots and hardpan right next to cart paths. That cost me at least three more strokes.

If you play a round of golf here just be prepared for these sorts of things. On my own I would have taken free relief from unplayable conditions. But in a tournament you just get unjustly penalized for the things I mentioned above. It's a shame too, because this is a nice layout that is otherwise maintained fairly well.

In hindsight I probably should haven taken several other unplayable lies that might have saved me 4 or 5 strokes. I just don't think it's fair that you take relief from a cart path and you are still hitting on hardpan and tree roots.

Always in good condition

Southampton is always a pleasure to play. Fairways and greens are always in great condition. Greens roll fast but not too fast and ball rolls true. Some challenging holes that require proper placement of your tee shots. Some of the bunkers are washed out or lacking sand but with all the rain we have had the past four months totally understandable.

Fun course , joy to play.

Well maintained , very forgiving for all golfers. The pace was very slow and very trying with the extreme heat.

This is one of my favorite courses to play.

Worth a try

I had not played here before and was pleased with the condition of the course. Not a real difficult course but the greens have good speed and lots of undulation on many of them. Fairways and tees were all in good shape and recommend getting out to play this fine course.

Always a good time

Course is in very good shape. Greens were a little sandy today but playable. Great new practice facility. Starter and course ranger were very friendly and accommodating. This course is on my weekly rotation. Never disappointed.

Thanks for all you do.

Great day of golf on a great course.

Teed off early. One or two groups in front of us. Spacing was great. Never had to wait on the group in front and the group behind us never had to wait on us. Wish other courses would space out groups like they do. Course was in great shape from tee to green. The layout doesn't have as much character as other courses I have played but this did have some neat holes. Most were pretty open allowing you to grip it and rip it off the tee. I would definitely play here again.

Much better shape

The greens are in much better shape and are rolling pretty fast. . There are a couple of holes where the bunkers have standing water which I also saw the last time I played a few weeks ago. This is still one of my favorite courses in the area. Very good practice putting, chipping and driving area. Friendly staff.

South Hampton Punched Greens

Tee to green, this course is in really good shape. Playing from the blues, it is challenging but reachable. Greens were punched this week so pretty sandy and slow currently. The current 18 hole rate was discounted and worth the price.

Consistently good!

I love this course. It has forgiving landing areas off the tee, but your approach shots have to be accurate. The greens always putt true. Usually a fast pace of play in the mornings. Played 18 in just under 4 hours. This is one of my "go to" courses in the area.

Golfer Friendly and fun to play

This course is always well maintained and cared for and after days of monsoon rains it drains very well and was very playable. This is my favorite course to play!

A great course to play for everybody.

Well worth the play

Very green, well maintained course. Pretty sight lines all around the course. 4 hr 15 minute round was fine. Tip: putts don’t break as much as they look.
