Gotta Play!

Been playing here for about 5 years. Recently, someone has been spending a lot of money. The greens are beautiful and fast Now the tee boxes are pristine. They’ve paved the parking lot too. Bargain price on green fee! Same great layout.

This is the nicest course and layout for the money anywhere between Savannah and Brunswick. Beautiful marsh views and course. In wonderful condition as well. Greens roll perfectly.

This place is a GEM!

We were so pleased with this course layout, the natural beauty of the marsh frontage (which we heard is the only of its kind along the coast) and the friendly staff. Don't know why folks go to the crowded and pricier courses around Savannah or St Simons when this place has it all and MORE. Just a short 15 minute drive off Interstate 95. Just visit their website to see drone footage of each hole and you will see what I mean! Lovely community surrounds with great seafood at Speeds Kitchen and Hunters Cafe.

MGA Fifth Tuesday

The course is in excellent shape - bermuda greens, fairways and rough. Fairways rolled nicely and the greens were moderately fast. The heat was mitigated by some nice breezes but had to be aware and adjust for the wind.

Great Round

Sapelo is always a fun round and this was no different. Course was in great shape. They trimmed the Bermuda around the greens making missing the green less penile. The greens were a little slow but very smooth. Fairways and tees were great and don’t have even a tiny negative to say.. I brought a friend for his first time and he said he’d be returning as well.

Great time

I played this course a year ago and they have made major improvements from then to now! The only issue I had was that there was sand on all greens, but in a couple weeks they should be in great shape. The fairways were beautiful and the only thing that was better was the views of the coast lines. It has to be one of the most beautiful courses I have played!! I will be back soon

Nice place

Great deal on Golfnow for $20. Course was in excellent shape.......greens were good , there were some bare spots in the fairways but nothing you couldn’t work around. Super neat layout and the views of the Marsh was incredible.

Hidden Gem

First time playing this course. Took about an hour to drive there from Savannah. Greens were aerated and sanded within the past week so putting was a challenge. Otherwise, course conditions were great. Fairways and tee boxes are in great shape. This is just a wonderful layout and really scenic on the marshes and tidal creeks. We will definately come back. Have friends that will visit in the fall and we will bring them down here for a round. They’ll love it too.

Beautiful Course in Great Condition!

We have played Sapelo Hammock numerous times even though it involves a nearly 2 hour drive. -- we love this course!
The greens are in perfect condition; the course invokes playing around spectacular marsh scenery -- the course is never boring.

Good course to play

My wife and I played this course. it was a good course. fairways and greens we’re in good condition and the staff was very friendly. The cart path is one that is all dirt throughout the course but that really doesn’t matter to many golfers. the pacing was great, but probably due to the heat, there were not many golfers out, but we enjoyed it. it was relaxing and hot, heat index- 103! we would play this course again We bought our round on GolfNow which allowed us to play for approximately $65 altogether which is probably the max that I would pay to play this course.

Beautiful golf course

I have been fortunate enough to play many different high end golf courses all over the USA and I must say Sapelo Hammock is one of the most beautiful courses I have ever played. Now some of the high end courses have a little nicer fairways but the greens at this course is as good as any plus the cost is one third the price of theses high end courses.. it’s a real gem that is a must play .
