Hidden Gem

I absolutely love this course. A little out of the way but that's kind of a good thing because it's not as busy as others. Wonderful layout, excellent conditions, friendly staff. They really do a great job here.

Great layout, would go back if I were closer

Greens were top dressed which was disappointing since I drove 4hrs from central Florida to meet a friend based upon recent reviews. Killed all scoring on difficult green complexes.

Cart paths are abysmal, terrible after a long car ride to boot.

Par 3s are no joke and I highly recommend 1st timers stay off Black tees. 9th hole black tees required 240y carry over marsh, today into wind and rain was playing at least 270y in the air. That’s a tall order with ZERO bailout space.

Fairways were good, chipping areas were lush but maybe a touch long. Tee boxes were 8/10 with a few uneven spots.

Rain, thunder, lightning, sunshine, humidity

All weather conditions on the course today. The greens were pretty sandy, would have been nice to know that. Course otherwise in wonderful condition. Especially the back nine. Played pretty well for not knowing the back as well as the front. Overall for the price, it was a great day. I think the green fees could be a little cheaper...can get on Laura S Walker for 17 bucks during the week, and it is in just as good as condition as Sapelo....just a suggestion...

Fabulous

Loved this course. Beautiful! God mix of easier holes and challenging holes. Very playable. Could always find my ball even when hit astray- areas outside of the fairway are well-maintained. Back nine through the marsh areas is gorgeous. I will come back here every time we visit the area (SSI).

For sure course to play

Such a beautiful course! The only complaint would be the greens were very slow. Not sure if they needed water or cutting. My guess would be both

Hidden gem in South Georgia!

I enjoyed myself today. The scenery is beautiful and the course is in great shape. This is a hidden gem in South Georgia not far from I-95.

Great round

Course is in great shape. Only issue was slow play but twosomes were the norm today. Still finished within 4 hrs. Worth the drive!

Hidden gem

Nice course off the beaten path. Staff could have been more informative, but I probably should have asked a few more questions. Reasonable rates for the layout. Fairways and tees in very good condition and traps were nicely raked. Greens were exceedingly slow but in good condition. Wonderful signage at each tee marker and yardages were done the old fashioned way with 200,150,100 yard markers in the centers of the fairways and marking the scorecard yardages on the par 3s. Tough to play the first time as several of the holes were quite tricky so you didn’t always know where to play the shots but not in any way unfair. Nice little clubhouse with a bar and snack bar. I would certainly recommend this course.

Great layout & conditions

I play this course 3-4 times per month. It has relatively light play compared to other courses in the Savannah-Brunswick area. It is almost always in great condition and I really like the layout.
