Course layout demands a variety of shots. Good change in elevations, sand in strategic locations, enough water to keep you alert. Par 3s on the short size but with large greens .. chance to grab some birdies. Staff provided a layout book as we were first time players. Extremely useful. Course in good condition with the greens on the slow side. Looking forward to bringing some golfing buddies here.

Thank you for the extensive 5 star review!

Yes, the delayed start and cold spring has caused the greens to be running a little on the slow side compared to our usual speed this time of year...The boys are working on it, I promise!

Thanks again and we'll see you soon!

Thank you for taking the time to provide some feedback.

I'm not really sure if this is a proper review of our golf course and your golfing experience or simply a statement of your dissatisfaction with this particular booking engine...Perhaps an unfair representation of our golf course?

Hey Matt, Thanks for taking the time to review your experience! I assure you we book our tee times in 9 minute intervals (our online inventory will verify).

Yes, despite having an on-course marshal at all times, pace of play continues to be a challenge during our busy days...We're doing our best!

Thanks Again,

My wife and I (70 yrs) live in Downtown Kitchener and booked Savannah Links on a GolfNow Hot Deal. First time playing there. Excellent value with cart included.

The course was in excellent condition after the winter, tees, rough, fairways and greens were near perfect. Lots of water so make sure to check back of scorecard to learn where some hidden ponds are located. I hit what I thought were some great shots only to be shocked as I crested the hill to see a pond where I presumed a fairway would be. There are one or two quirky holes but interesting nevertheless. 6 par 3’s. Number 18 is one tough hole.

Very friendly reception at Pro Shop and Starter let us go early and there was no one ahead of us for entire 18 holes. A walking single playing behind us did just catch us at 18. We played in 3 hours and 15 minutes and enjoyed every minute.

A very interesting century old stone house wall on one hole that I got behind and had to chip out.

Check the course website as there is a section of Cheddar Creek Road Closed due to road construction between Myers and Waynco. We turned left off Water Street at Waynco and accessed course easily that way although a section of Waynco is gravel.

Overall a great round of golf on a superb course on a perfect afternoon of weather. We will certainly return.

Although it was a little cold, it was a great day at a great course! Savannah is definitely one of our favourite stops all summer long. Conditions are always fantastic and course is always challenging. Played in 3 hours due to the cold and the fact it was not busy. Thanks to all the staff for a great summer of golf!

Really enjoyed playing this round on an October Saturday. Started at 1250pm and finished at 4pm. Excellent pace and for some reason not a ton of people out there golfing. The only small issues we found were the greens not been cut recently ( probably because of the rain ), we couldn't drive on the fairways and no beverage cart at all on the course.

But all in all a fun round and I will definitely go back and play again. Not a super long course but the design makes you use every club in your bag. Really enjoyed the course

Hi Marc. Thank you for the 5 star review! A quick note regarding your points : 1. Daily cutting schedules are reduced when the grass slows down in the fall (supplement with heavy rolling). 2. Yes, we keep the carts off the fairways when we are wet to keep them in great shape. 3. Staffing issues in the fall season have meant little to no beverage cart on the course (but cooler bags are available in the bar). Thanks again for your review and we hope you come back soon! Chris

Main road to the golf course is CLOSED, i think that beside the detour sign should also be the golf course name to make it easier for first time golfers and other one's not aware of it , GPS is not helpful in this situation , will take you via small streets and back to The Cheese Factory Rd, which is CLOSED!!

Hi HPGB. Thank you for your review! Yes, it is true that the recent construction has been a nuisance to the golf course and our customers. Such is the cost of progress I am told. We are currently trying to work with the city to better direct our customers to the course and have even posted our own indicator signs. For a better understanding of the closure and the detour routes visit our website under "Contact Us," then "Directions." A big thank you to all of our customers for your ongoing patience in the matter. Chris
