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.

I’ve played Southhampton many times. It’s a great layout that suits my eye and my fade. The greens are rolling nicely but not too quick. Some bunkers have only thin layer of soft sand. There are some unique holes, some well protected holes, and some unique challenges. The par 3s and 5s treated me well during my round. It’s easier than nearby Cimarrone and St. John’s Golf & Country club, but still makes for a great day. They are completely rebuilding the two practice areas and driving range. So don’t expect a great warmup area yet, but by mid to late 2018 the whole experience should be top notch.

Golf Now failed to post that the driving range at South Hampton is down due to repair. Also there is no putting green or chipping green. You have to practice before you get there, they only have a net for practice. Course is in great shape in pace of play was excellent. Had a great day. Will definitely play at this course again.

The greens were in fine shape and the fairways as well. Not a lot of water comes into play here so I actually saved several balls. Greens were really fast which is how I like them but like most folks I could always use some help with my putting. Weather was great today and the staff was helpful. Only concern for the day was no driving range, range was under re-construction and wish I had known that ahead of tee time.

There are 3 courses located right next to one another in St. John’s county, the golf club at South Hampton being one of the three.

This is a mark macumber designed course with wide open fairways and landing areas, but many strategically placed bunkers. It is esthetically not spectacular, especially with the dormant Bermuda in February, but has extremely fast manicured greens that are quite challenging and roll beautifully. There is some water but it did not seem to come into play very often. Many of the holes are well bunkered.

Cimarrone golf course across the street is also very nice and has a great layout with water on every hole.

Never played at nearby St. John’s, but heard it was very nice as well.

So I totally understand when it rains we need to keep the carts of the fairways to keep them from tearing up the grass. South hampton is built up pretty well and has a sandy base so I believe a more common sense approach where we allow carts on holes that aren't soaking wet. Pace of play will always be an issue I get it but rangers can speed people up or make them skip holes. When you play a 2 1/2 hr round in the morning and a 5 1/2 hr round in the afternoon it gets me thinking.

The course was in pretty good shape although the greens had just been sanded. Even with the sanding the greens were running true and the fairways and tea boxes were in great conditition. The one drawbacks that the driving range has been removed to install a new and better one.

Love the course but the weather did not co-operate. The sky opened up with monsoon rains and we had to run for cover and call it a day. Note: The driving range is closed while they completely redo it over.

I love South Hampton. Been playing here consistently for the last 6 years. But recently the PACE OF PLAY has been slower and slower with every visit. This last round took me and my friend (a 2-some) 3 hours and 10 mins to get to the 11th tee box. We left mid round and went to the clubhouse to ask for a raincheck for the back 9 because I did not have 6 hours to play golf that particular day. I love this course, layout, price point, and staff - but I genuinely hope they make the necessary changes to improve pace of play in the near future. It's the best deal in town (in my opinion) but the slow pace of play makes me hesitant to book my next round here. Believing the best for the new year! Ha!

This course has improved more than any course in the area. The greens now roll true, and are very fast. The pace of play has improved, although at times can be very slow. Once they finish the range improvements, South Hampton will be one of the best courses around.
