Not good

The course is in really bad shape. Fairways burnt and sparse. Bunkers were unplayable, many were blue staked. It had some neat holes but conditions were really bad.

Proshop and grill were nice and the staff was friendly.

Its been better

It’s always better to end with the good. Fairways on most holes was thin, too thin for this time of year. The greens were very bumpy and could be recovering from recent aerification. The pin location posted was incorrect causing me to over/under club several times. When there was good grass on the fairways it was cut too high. It had recently been cut and obviously a long time between cuts with dead grass lying everywhere.

They are trying to improve the cart paths by breaking up the concrete where there are large breaks. They are working on some traps and mark those under repair with blue stakes. This enabled me to aim for them on some holes and still be in good shape. They have new carts which replace the worn out, old ones.

I enjoy the layout and the staff is friendly but I was really surprised by the conditions this time. Hopefully they will improve for the rest of the season.

Horrible condition

One of my favorite courses in Savannah. Sad to say it was in horrible shape. Will not be wasting 45 dollars to play here again until they start taking better care of the course.

This course is in desperate need of attention.

The staff was wonderful, the greens are useless. Between the lack of grass, and weeds, the greens are more like putting on a sand zen garden than green. They were rolling the sand when we were out there which was interesting, but honestly they need seed and water desperately. We played auto two putts because the greens were honestly that bad. Other parts of the course are in desperate need for repair also, water fills 3/4 of the bunkers and even the tee boxes need grass and seed. The layout of the course is great if they put some money into it, I would consider coming back.

A little pricey for the conditions

Course is very dry. Greens are ok but fairways and tee boxes are rock hard from lack of water. We haven’t had much rain in quite a while but the course should be watering and if they are it sure doesn’t show. There is little to no grass on the fairways in many places and it makes good shots difficult. Some of the fairway bunkers are not being maintained either. I have really enjoyed this course in the past but to pay $50 to play on a Saturday and bring a friend to a “nice” course this round was a little disappointing.

Gone down hill

At one time this was a nice golf course but it has gone down hill recently. The layout is still good and the fairways have some grass but it’s very dry and hard. A shell of what it used to be which is a shame.

An absolute goat ranch

This was obviously a a well thought out layout by Rees Jones that has become laughable. It is the worse conditioned course I've played in decades. Visiting Savannah with friends and wanted to get a round in. Paid $49 and was maybe worth $15. I'm with the previous reviewer, if I owned property on that course, I'd be livid. Run, don't walk-this experience sucks out loud.

Terrible

This course is a disaster. Should close until “playable”. A real dig track. We quit after 5 holes. Didn’t go into clubhouse to complain. Worried about being arrested after I vented. Even cart paths were a disaster. I’ve seen cow pastures in better shape.

Absolutely HORRIBLE

Could not believe how BAD this course has gotten! The conditions are horrendous and it’s obvious the owners don’t care anything about maintaining or improving the course. It’s so sad that this was once the second or third best course in Savannah! I feel sorry for the homeowners as I’m sure this course brings down the property values. The owners and staff should be ashamed that the course is even still open for play - it’s that BAD!!!

Nice Course, Friendly Staff

First round of the year for me, came down from up north and took advantage of a hot deal. A good layout within a nice residential community. The houses aren’t really in play for the most part which is nice. Was the first one off (alone) so I buzzed right around. Fast greens, plenty of bunkers with good sand. For this time of the year conditions were decent. The cart paths could use some work but all in all a very enjoyable experience.

Pre meeting round

Played with a friend prior to a meeting in Savannah. Had played here a couple of years ago and was slightly disappointed with the conditions. It may be just coming out of winter, but certainly not as good as 2 years ago. Still enjoyed the round, the pace of play was great and the greens were ok. Location is excellent in relation to Interstate and downtown Savannah. Pro-shop attendant was very cordial.

Greens and back up on somebody holes

Greens were fast. Some of the teeboxes were backed up and crowded due to everyone playing golf. May want to go real early or later on in the afternoon.

Needs a little love

The layout is terrific, and the course is a good value, but it needs some maintenance. The greens were bumpy and irregular, but perhaps that's to be expected given the season. Fairways were in good shape, but bunkers, tee boxes, and other areas need cleaning and maintenance. Some of the cart paths were crumbling as well. With a little work, this could be a top-notch golf course.
