Beautiful day on Sapelo

Had a friend down from NC and we had a beautiful day on the course. The course was in great condition even with all the rain the night before. The staff is awesome, so friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work.

Visitor to the Brunswick area

I found the whole experience great. Friendly folks, ease of play, and I highly commend the maintenance program. The greens collars, approaches and fairways are perfectly tended to and the fairway mower operator seems to really care about the course, giving the fairways character and little surprises here and there making the experience memorable to a golfer like me who plays lots of rural courses as well as high end locations..

Wonderful course

One other most beautiful visually golf courses I have ever played. One hole after another was a Kodak moment. Also course was in great shape. Even though they had just sanded and aerated the course it still played very well. Several tee boxes to choose from so all levels of play was allowed.

Staff great and it was pleasant day to golf.

Wet weather
Walked

Sprinkling at Sapelo

Th staff was awesome, the course was fun, in decent shape. A few dead green spots but very few. Fairways drained well considering it had rained heavily while we waited to tee-off. and scattered sprinkles throughout the round. Worth the drive from SSI.

pleasantly surprised

A massive improvement of a site that is recovering from a closure and subsequent reopening.
No longer a dried out pasture passing as a golf course.

Course conditions

Irritates me when you book a tee time but don't mention that your putting sand on all of the greens! Not only did they put a ton of sand on but when players walked on the greens they left ridges. Not only did it hurt your game but we had to move stones the size of marbles. Terrible experience!! This is a beautiful course, but its all about making that buck and not caring about their reputation. They didn't even offer a reduced green fees, that proves where their priorities are. I'm very disappointed
