Majority of day was spent waiting on tee boxes and fairways due to terrible management of tee times. Starter had an attitude which seems to be the norm at this place and it made for a horrible round. I think I’ll take my money elsewhere going forward. Probably the the fourth time in last two years I’ve had this experience.

It was a beautiful fall day for golf. The course was in good shape for fall golf. It was not in the same condition expected in prime season. Pace of play was fine. The staff was helpful. I would play again.

South Shore Country club is a great layout for the amateur through the every day player. You need to hit fairways off the tee box ,even hitting fairways still requires an accurate second shot to very difficult greens . Greens were slow this time, but very well kept, considering it is late October. I have played this course many times and have always had to use every club in my bag. Very true reading greens all types of undulations . To play well here this course requires steady course management before hitting any tee shot. I would recommend this course to any level player especially to the low handicappers to see if they can shoot their handicaps that they bring from other courses.

Course in great shape. Bunkers and greens especially. New carts too. Cart paths could use some work. 2 dogs and 2 beers at the turn way too expensive at over $20. Pace of play no issue. Will revisit and recommend to friends.

Played on a Sunday afternoon as a single. Booked through GolfNow and there was apparently some over-booking happening. I ended up waiting 30 minutes past my scheduled tee time to get out. Then it was slow going, until we were able to get by a slow group at the turn. (probably 2:30 for the front, and 1:40 for the back)

It was blazing hot, but the course was in great shape and the breeze kept it tolerable. If you're walking be prepared for some hills... lots of up and down.. Between the heat and the hills, I was exhausted by the time I finished.

I played South Shore Country Club yesterday and I had an awesome experience. I found a great deal on GolfNow for $22 for walking, could not turn it down. The weather was questionable at my tee time, and the pro shop attendant was very fair saying, if I started and the weather went bad, he would give me a full refund or rain check. Weather ended up being great! Course was in great shape, greens were perfect! Lots of great holes out there and a lot of fun to play. Great for all skill levels. I would definitely recommend.
