If it’s this nice now, I can’t wait until spring

Just a great course, laid out in old live oak forests and marshes. Grass is a little thin in spots, but a few more warm days like today and it will return. Very nice folks running the place, as well as friendly volunteers who were working on patching thin spots. They all take pride in this course, as they should. Hope to make this place a regular part of my golf game.

Great Value and Enjoyable Experience

I never had played this course, but was told it was worth the drive from. St. Simons. I couldn’t agree more !!

This course is an incredible value....the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, the course generally was in good condition, and it was a nice challenge for my mid handicap level. While the fairway turf was a bit thin in spots, the greens were in good condition and rolled pretty true. I’ll be back down the road.

great course

very friendly staff. Course is challenging. Tboxes and some fairways were a little thin but for winter conditions, not unacceptable. Course if visually stunning, winding between massive moss draped oaks. Will definitely play again.

Worth the ride

I decided to make the 2.5 hour drive to this course and it was well worth the effort. The 8th and 17th holes alone made it a great course but there were many other memorable holes.

When I finished, the sun was setting over the marsh affording the most spectacular views, Just beautiful. I put my clubs into the car, changed my shoes and decided to use the facilities before starting the long drive back. As I walked up the several stairs to the clubhouse, two of the members on the deck stood, said hello and asked if I had enjoyed my round.

We chatted for several minutes and the sincerity of their hospitality was obvious and greatly appreciated. I can't wait to get back there.

1ST TEE OFF SAPELO

As a golf beginner, I don't know enough to write a truly critical golf course evaluation/ review. I do have over 30 years of Business and Sales experience that qualifies me to be both critical and analytical as I visit and play courses in my immediate area. I was very pleased with the staff and the grounds and the amenities at Sapelo Hammock and will return. The staff was both courteous and helpful on the the telephone and at the course. All little nuances were handled without any resistance. I look forward to returning to the course and area to play another few rounds.

One of the best courses in the southeast!

First off, Gary in the pro shop was super friendly and professional. The facilities were very clean and had that old south welcome home feel. I had the chicken salad sandwich for lunch and it was delightful. For $5 you can hit all the range balls you want!! Once out of the course there are spectacular views and the course was pristine from tee to green. I was golfing with one other person and unfortunately we got stuck behind a slow foursome for the first 5-6 holes. Luckily they let us play through at the turn. Other than that it was an awesome experience and I will definitely be making the trip back to Sapelo Hammock Golf Club!!

Not bad

I like the course, its that time of year, fairways need reseeding, greens are in need of a little work but better than the fairways. Staff is always friendly. Carts are noisy.
