Greens are coming along

The course is beautiful as it winds through the oak hammocks and the salt marshes. About 80% of the greens were in very good shape with a few on the mend as evidenced by the seedlings coming up. I would expect them to be in excellent condition later in the summer of 2021 and expect to return for another round. The staff seemed a little confused about their reservation system and charged me for our rounds that my buddy paid for on line. I will be calling them tomorrow to get it straitened out.

Green paint

I've been playing this course since it first opened and never had a complaint. That stops here. It is in terrible shape. Every green is damaged and damaged badly. All the green paint in the world can't hide it. We paid $59 for this disaster. Clubhouse staff didn't seem to care when I asked why the conditions are so bad. I hope Sapelo can't get it back in the great shape it had been for many years. Save your money for now.

Thank you for playing Sapelo Hammock Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Good course

Good course. Was fun to play. Has some par 3’s going over the marsh that make it fun. Overall the course was in good condition. A few greens were a little rough. It’s a good course for the money if you willing to drive a little bit to play it. I shoot in the mid 80’s but the variety of distances from tee box’s will make it fun for any level golfer !

Unfortunately not positive

This is the 4th year we have played a round at Sapelo Hammock. Unfortunately this year we were very disappointed. The layout is good. The staff is very friendly. However the course is not in good condition. Very little grass in the fairways making for consistently tight lies. And the greens are terrible. Painting does not make a green better. The bugs are also terrible. We will probably not be back and would certainly not recommend. Sorry to give such a negative review but....

Great early season

Wonderful condition being the beginning of March. We only played 9 holes because of our time issues. Course in good condition and fun to play. I’ve played there before off and on over 10 years, and I believe it’s the best it has been

Georgia Coast Secret

I was very surprised to pull in the parking lot at 8:00am and be the first car in the parking lot. I said what am I missing?? Well, nothing! Very nice layout, good condition and very scenic golf course. Highly recommend this golf course to enjoy the Georgia coast with several views of the marsh.
