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.

Played here on the Rec of a local as we are from out of town. The course didn’t disappoint. They had a junior PGA event going on so they got us off the back nine first. The track is pretty enjoyable and there’s little water, which is a relief after playing many courses with water in play for the bulk of the course. Greens were a little hard, but they were still in really good shape. Lots of sharp doglegs so you’ll have to take less than driver a few times, which is actually fun. Definitely will be back

Play here all the time, and it's become my favorite. Not too easy, but wide and spacious fairways. Greens are in good shape. Worst part about it is sand traps, they must be very hard to maintain for most of them are full of pools of water and a ball can easily get list in it. Traps are hard packed outside of that, for the most part. All in all a great course.

Course was in decent shape - have seen it better but considering the weather in the area the last few weeks - was playable - probably very similar to others int he area.

Was very disappointed with the folks in the pro-shop. Had a no-show due to an unexpected illness - the guy in the pro-shop said no problem - they wouldn’t charge us for the missing green fee - then did it anyway. Won’t be going there again.

Very impressed with all facets of the course and staff. They are making significant investments in the practice area - the newly renovated one opens in July - and in the maintenance of the course. Substantial rain has helped but the staff attention to detail is the determining factor. We noted they are behind - understandably - in bunker maintenance. A few we played as GUR. Greens recovering nicely from being punched - should be true and quick by next week.

Course was great as usual, but "They have Lost The Bunkers".. the Greenside Bunkers, Bunkers were a disaster: Wet, Hard Sand and had big puddles or ponds in them, and it had not rained in 2 days. Should have been designated GUR until they can get them back in playable shape.

Most of the bunkers on the course were full of water. They need to be drained. Should have been told that the fairways and greens were recently aerated. It’s one of my favorite courses in the area but I will not be back for awhile.

Played this course a hundred times this might be worst I’ve seen it. Yes they have no practice area that’s being redone should be great when finished. Yes they punched the greens but really just about everything is looking bad. Bunkers is bad shape tee boxes and honestly just the overall appearance has gone downhill. Hopefully they get it right.

Course conditions are excellent from the recent rains. Fairways and greens in great shape, altho greens were somewhat inconsistent depending on their ability to drain. Generous fairways allow good scoring if you can chip and putt. Great layout.

With all the rain we rain we've had, the was plush, the green were excellent (except a couple with bare spots).The greens were speedy, but receptive. There was only a couple of holes that had wet spots from all the rain. Overall the course was in excellent shape, have a good round. Also being a senior, I glad they have 6 different tees, one for every range of golfer. Enjoy.

Range and practice greens are close to being re-opened and should add a lot. Course itself was in very good condition, as it usually is. I was paired with three others and we had a really nice afternoon round. Folks in front of us were a little slow, but not terrible.

We love this golf course. It was in great shape and well worth the price. The only problem was there was a slow group in front of us that were probably playing the wrong tees for their talent. The ranger didn't speed them up until about the 7th hole but he did explain that they were really booked that day. We will definitely go back. The pro is a really great guy and very friendly.

It will be 5 star all through when the range is reopened!!

South Hampton is known for faster than average greens. However, probably due to recent rain and faster growth, the greens were much slower than usual. As a result, it was easy to leave many putts short.
