Looking good...

I've read some negative reviews and was somewhat nervous about playing here. Grabbed a nice Hot Deal, froze a Powerade, splashed on the sunscreen and made the trip. Totally worth it! I've played here a few times in the last 10 years and have always enjoyed the layout. Conditions were not pristine but still very playable. Fairways were green and growing well and the ball sat up nicely. The greens were recently sanded but I did not notice many bad spots and they rolled true. Don't hesitate to play here. It's all coming along nicely and I applaud their work.

Played here in July and August. Overall the course us in very good condition. The name CHALLENGE is very fitting. The fairways are in very good condition. The greens have recovered from the winter kill. Pro shop staff is friendly and warm. Clobhouse good is good and they have a good choice of beverages.

Nice shape at this time

The rains have helped the conditions of the course as the fairways and greens are in very good shape. Some collars and edges around the course are rough...be careful of roots/rocks. The course winds through housing on certain holes but does not feel cramped. Some water but only on a few holes. Proshop is quite basic but serviceable. Cold water in igloos on course, no restrooms but maybe a port-a-john (I can't recall).

poor conditions

As others have stated, this course is falling into disrepair and should be avoided. Tee boxes are basically dirt, the fairway grass is sparse, and the greens are splotchy and bumpy with many bare spots. Bunkers are terrible and the cart paths are broken cement. On the plus side (and there are not many) the guy in the proshop was friendly and they did have cold water in the coolers on the course. The layout is good and it's a shame they cannot get the course playable. Stay away until (if?) the reviews get better.

Response from Falls Village Golf Club on 05/15/2018:
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback with us. On behalf of our staff, we are truly sorry to hear the course did not meet your expectations recently. Your comments will be shared for necessary improvements, but we appreciate your patience and understanding as the region has suffered from winter kill and we are still in the process of recovering. We are fertilizing with the warmer weather so our grass should be growing at a much quicker pace moving forward. We hope we have the chance to welcome you back for an improved golf experience soon.

It should be better...

I have always loved the layout here but conditions as of May 1 just are not that great. Fairways are still sparse and tight lies abound. Collars around most greens are uneven, muddy, and very bumpy. The greens are only okay, not totally smooth. Tee boxes are sandy and uneven. I hope it all improves as the weather gets better because I do enjoy playing here but I left disappointed in the overall shape of the course.

Welcoming staff and friendly course

First time playing course. Chilly conditions and with our early arrival and a less-than-full tee sheet we were allowed out before our Hot Deal teetime. Very friendly cart/shop staff. Early April conditions were to be expected as not much is growing so tee boxes were a little sparse and sandy. Fairways were coming in and the greens were in great shape, fast and true. No on-course rest rooms (port-a-johns only). GPS in the carts is always a welcomed plus. Course is smartly routed thru swamps and wooded areas and each hole is by itself. No housing but one hole does have the Embassy Suites looming on the left side! Another hole has the drag track stands/parking area off in the distance. Truly a scenic and fun course and we would play it again anytime.

Early Spring conditions

My wife and I played while visiting Savannah. Course overall is very nice but playing in early Feb we had some tight fairways where the ball was not sitting up as well as hoped. The grass was a bit thin in spots but I have no doubt this will improve in the coming weeks. Greens were rolling true and the layout is great. Movement hole to hole is easy and it would be a nice walk (as many were). No on course restrooms, facility available at the turn. Bottled water in coolers were a great touch. Never to be forgotten were the fighter jets flying very low overhead...it was so cool to be playing while the rumble of freedom played just above your head! For travelers the location is fantastic: just off 95 and within 5 minutes of approx 15 hotels and many restaurants.

Nice course...no homes!

Played with my wife who plays 40+ rounds annually, Bro-in-law (10+ annually) and sister (3+ annually) and myself (50+ annually). We all enjoyed the course layout very much. Very few blind shots, only a few water hazards, many holes seemed as if we were out by ourselves in a nature preserve. A hawk floating lazily above, palms, pines and other trees swaying in the wind, and scenic drives between holes made for a great day. As per other reviews the cart paths are not pristine but just slow down a bit and pay attention and you'll be fine. On course restrooms, a friendly clubhouse staff and a great rate on Golfnow all help with making River Bend a very solid choice!

Very warm day at Chapel Ridge

Played this afternoon (Sat 6-4) in the 90+ degree heat. First the positives: Greens in nice shape, tee boxes okay, starter moved throughout keeping the pace of play going smoothly. Negatives: Most bunkers in terrible shape, some areas around greens in rough condition, fairways bare and thin in many spots. Biggest negative: Only 1 cooler (near Hole 5 I believe) on the course had any water and no beverage cart was working. In this heat not supplying your patrons with water is inexcusable. Luckily I brought a bottle of water with me but was only able to refill it a few times. No cold water on a hot day makes for a long unpleasant afternoon.

It's all right there in front of you

Not too many courses can you see the flag on every hole...this one you can. Every hole is almost directly straight with very flat terrain. Very wide open with almost a Plains feel. Conditions were pretty nice for December with fairways okay and the manageable rough turning dormant. 17 greens were excellent, only the 3rd hole had some nasty kill throughout but good job by the staff to find a pin placement where putting was okay. Only one or two water hazards. Bunker sand was rough and had some small rocks, be careful. Port-a potties on front and back. Clean clubhouse and pro shop with friendly workers. Very walkable.

Welcoming staff and course

My wife and I played Masonboro on Fri 10-30 and Beau Rivage on Sun 11-1. Very friendly people at BR and the course itself was also friendly. Fairways were fairly wide and receptive, homes/condos didn't seem too close, water does come in play on some holes, greens in fantastic shape. On course bathrooms and water coolers. Some scenic drives in the GPS-equipped carts, not at all a walkers course. Large putting green and smaller chipping area with a nice driving range. Did not try anything at the 19th hole but the crowd watching NFL games seemed quite happy (until the Giants lost)! Will definitely play this course again on our next visit to the beach as we may even stay at the resort!
