Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
Nice course for a $17 coupon. Each hole was relatively the same. Most of the greens were not pretty but oh well. Good little bargain for golf now. The staff was awesome though. We did get rushed quite a bit by fellow golfer but there’s not much you can do about tht. Everyone used to golf around the same time
needs some TLC
Have played this course several times over the past 3 years. Played it three times this year. Today's round was atrocious. Fairway grass is almost nonexistent, over half of the greens had bald spots, no grass and/or sandy patches, many other greens appeared to have fungus or other type weeds interspersed with the regular grass. Ground was exceedingly dry. I realize we haven't had a lot of rain for the past several weeks but there is no reason they shouldn't be watering the fairways and greens. The operator took this over a few years back and spent a lot of money bringing the course back, but now it appears that maintenance is being put on the back burner.
I won't bother to come back again until they fix the greens and get the fairway grass to grow some. There are too many bare spots on the fairways to get a good ball strike. Not worth the money even if it was $5 a round. Sad indeed. This is one of my hometown courses and I would bring friends and family here but not in the shape it's currently in.
Not sure whats going on but the course needs alot of work. This is the growing season and most all the courses are in great shape. We putted through water on the greens as they watered them on a Sunday afternoon. I hit an approach shot and landed in dirt on the green. Lots of weeds and bare spots. Very very dissatisfied. With fall and winter around the corner , i dont know if they will get them back.
Which way do I go?
Played this course while on vacation. Decent enough layout, but the course was in rough condition. Many greens were splotchy and it seemed like probably half of them had been painted. Signs directing you back to the cart path for the next hole were nonexistent, so I frequently found myself on a maintenance path and had to either reverse course or cut across ignoring the “No Carts” signs.
This is a 2 star course.
The greens are atrocious. I thought since this place hosted the local city championship, that it would be ok. It is awful. Almost every green has multiple dirt spots. O.C. Welch should be embarrassed to have his name on this.
Awful practice facilities
The courses chipping and putting greens are a poor excuse for greens. My backyard is in better condition to putt then the practice green. The round was significantly better. Score cards still do not have a map of the course layout. There is no cart path so there is cart wear everywhere. Not worth $45 to play go to Southbridge or crosswinds.
Bad condition course
The course is in very poor condition ! Go play another place !! Tee boxe, fairway, and almost all green need a lots of work !
We arrive 45 min before our tee off time and the guy ( i beleave he is the pro ) did not want us to go earlier because we booked with golf now ??
The worst of it is that there was absolutely no one on the course ??
That was the first and last time at bacon park !
Put your money elsewhere
Overall the course is in good condition however fairways grass is still dormant and quite bare making most shots difficult. Traps are in good shape, raked and good sand. Greens are extremely fast. Worth the money but expect minimal grass on the fairways.
Needs some work
Great staff, great old design but it needs some work to get it to it's potential. I hope the City of Savannah knows what could be done with this gem.
Greens needs work tee boxes needs grass fairways are a little bare but the course was mostly dry giving good rolls on fairway shots greens bare but mostly rolled good.
Course could be great
The layout of the course is very fun. Provides a challenge on the greens without making it unplayable for a hacker. However, it needs a few things to get to the next level. First thing they need is to spend the money to lay a cement cart path throughout the course, and then enforce cart path only or 90degree rule on the rainy days/weeks we get. The course is so beat up from the carts and mud that I don’t know that it will ever recover. Next would be to identify pin locations and share with the patrons playing. Simple way to improve the course and help out the paying customers. Last thing would be to put a concession stand/restrooms/vending machine station at the 9th green where the 4th green and 5th and 10th tee boxes all meet. Do those things and the course will be top notch!
I booked this round with fully prepared to walk due to the rain the previous night. I was surprised to hear that the course did not have cart paths and was allowing players to drive on the course. The course should be walking or pull carts only in its present state. The 7th fairway and others had deep ruts from golf carts trying to find a safe path.
The greens are in great shape for winter and played smoothly. The course is straight forward and a good causal layout.
I will play again in the spring and see what the shape of the course is after this wet winter.
Greens in really bad shape. Fairways today weren’t good as well. Has a lot of weeds and bald spots all over. First par 3 has a dirt green. I believe it’s number 4
Not bad for a city course
First time here. From the start, the staff is very friendly. Unfortunately, there was a men's league in front of us so have of play was slow. However, the starter apologized numerous times and was very friendly every time we saw him. The course is a little beat up and some of the greens are scalped pretty good. For a city course it isn't that bad. Not very challenging either.
Course Needs Work
Overall it was a great day playing because you can’t beat a day on the course. It was a little wet but the fairways were beautiful and tee boxes were pretty decent. Tee boxes needed to be marked off better I’d say and the golf cart path is pretty much non existent. I will play again for sure but the greens needed some love and a cart path would be great. I’ll be back hopefully with better weather.
Have been told a bunch to play here you will love it. So I did today and the course layout is nice not much rough as there is a lot of weeds and thin fairway as the rough bunkers was nice on the second hole was only time I was in them. The greens rolled decent and really good on a few holes and was faster than appeared. They need to do some work on a few of their greens and maybe move the red tees back a little as my girl friend didn’t like teeing off from the fairway instead of a tee box. Tee time was at 11:40 and was right on time. Putting green was horrible same as chipping green so we skippped that part. Greens are big wind makes a difference there as it is pretty open. Was a little sad that the cart girl never came back out during the busiest time of the day. She was pulling up to the clubhouse as we tee’d off and never seen her and #9 does not end by the clubhouse so make sure you take plenty of beer or water when you play here. Will play here again as long as it is under $28 on golf now. But should be around $20
Groups sent out every 10 mins, but level of play by golfers takes 15 mins per hole, resulting in long waits and delays every hole. Need someone to better regulate start times and pace of play.
