Great value

Tee boxes weren’t in great shape but everything else was good. Greens were spray painted to make them ultra green. Rough was brown so green color stuck out. First time playing and would go back.

Another Great Morning at Sapelo Hammock

I continue to be pleasantly surprised at the wonderful experience I have been enjoying playing Sapelo Hammock. The course is challenging, the greens well cared for, the setting memorably beautiful and the staff friendly and accommodating. It's a little off the beaten track, but well worth the ride.

Diamond in the rough

I really didn't expect the course/greens to be as nice as it/they were. The public star rating is spot on. I noticed that most of the shot divots in the fairways had been filled with sand. Keep it up golfers. A couple of nice local guys allowed me to pare up with them, for course knowledge. It rivals most resort courses that I have played in Myrtle Beach, with the exception that the greens are a touch smaller and no paved cart paths. I would really like to walk the course next time, but I didn't notice any walking rates on the website and I didn't ask at the clubhouse. Its a great value specially if you can book thru a discount outlet. I will mention that there were a few wet spots on the course and I don't know how recent they had gotten rain, so it may be questionable as to how well it drains. Enjoy

Beautiful Setting and a Fine Layout

Sapelo Hammock is set in a beautiful location among the love oaks covered with Spanish moss. I arrived early, and the staff member who was putting the carts out was extremely kind and accommodating. I played a single, the second group out following a 3some and the pace of play was terrific. The course was in very good condition and the greens were superb.

Monday round

Love this course- the layout, the value, the amenities. All are excellent for a golfer of my skill and expectations. The food at the grill is great, prices are reasonable, and the greens were in the best shape I've seen since I've been playing at Sapelo. Will definitely be back soon.

weather issues

This is a beautiful course and is well maintained. We could only play 9 holes before we were rained on. There was no issues getting a rain check. We will play this course again. The course is out of the way,(50 minute ride from Savannah) but well worth the ride.

Friendly, fast pace and fun to play

Sapelo Hammock has the friendliest staff and members. The course is in great shape and the layout is fun to play. Beautiful scenery, challenging holes with several forced carries. The course slope and rating seem low. Bunkers are mainly used as a distant target, they don’t come into play that often. Best of all the pace of play is always good even when they are busy.

Sapelo Hammock

First time playing the course was interesting, I will definitely be back for a second and many more rounds. The trees can make it challenging, along with the wind on the back 9. We had a great day and enjoyed the splendid atmosphere in the cafe for a quick bite

Hidden Gem for Savannah Area

Early tee times means no pressure for you on the course as most players dont start until lunch or later here. Super friendly staff, and for the are this is an incredibly well maintained course. If you aren't going to play Hilton Head or The Westin, then this should be your first choice.
