Greens!

I have played this course on and off for several years. This course layout has always been challenging, but the conditions and fairways have always been below standards. Henceforth, during this round I could greatly see the improvements and investments in course conditions (landscape work)and the greens were in phenomenal shape.

Southland is a good course and a good value for the fees they charge. It’s pretty wide-open and the greens were in good shape. It’s definitely challenging for the average golfer.

BYOB and food. They have drinks and snacks but no food.

Great day

Although it was cold and breezy, we had a great time.
The greens were amazing. Smooth and slightly quick. Downhill putts were very challenging, as they should be. The leaves were well-blown off the fairways and greens. Just a great experience.

Noticeably improved!

We have played Southland many times in past years but have not gone recently. We were pleasantly surprised with the course improvements, especially the greens. We have always thought Southland had the potential to be a stellar course - some of the holes, like 12 and 17, provide picturesque views. The cart paths still need some work in many areas. Our only complaint this visit was that the two foursomes in front of us merged together and played as 8, which caused us to wait on every tee after the 2nd hole and our found took nearly 5 hours. Other than their lack of courtesy, it was a lovely, fun day on the course.

We appreciate you leaving a review and rating us. We will inform the entire team, so they know their hard work to improve the course is paying off. We apologize for the pace issue. We only allow a maximum of a foursome on each hole, so please bring this to our attention in the shop and we would happily resolve this! We look forward to having you back at Southland Golf & Country Club!

Southland

I really liked the layout. I thought the greens were really challenging. I had a lot of trouble judging the speed. Some of the tee boxes were really bad while others were really good. The fairways were above average and very playable. As a single I played directly behind another single and he played behind a twosome. The round took only 3 1/2 hours which I thought was ok to good. I would play this course again.

Very much improved

Over the years Southland has been an OK place, a goat track, but now the current owners and managers have made a great effort to improve -- and have succeeded in creating a really nice course which will only get better.
Greens are fast. Hole placements are insane. Fairways mostly really nice. Tee boxes need work.

Pace way too slow!!

No one is monitoring the pace of play. Now that the weather has cooled off., the course has gotten too crowded and takes way too long. We left the course after 4 hours and 45 minutes and skipped the last hole. Too bad….

Perfect greens, great potential

The course is in great shape overall, and provides a great value. The greens were rolling fast and smooth, and had some interesting contours. The only issue is many of the bunkers did not have sand, but that did not bother me too much. There is no halfway house and the course does't circle by the clubhouse, so pack accordingly. With a little more time and money, this will be a great place for casual golfers. Would recommend!

Hole 6 lady steals your balls

So I play this course quite often. The last 3 times I have played on hole 6 it’s an uphill drive toward a rock formation. There is an old lady who sits on a bench in the woods and will steal or pick up your drive before you get to it. I have seen her do it in multiple occasions. She did it today and got pretty aggressive about not doing it even after my partner and I visually watched her walk out of the woods and pick up my drive and proceed to put the ball In her pocket,Then walk back into the woods and sit on her bench waiting on the next drive to come near so she can pick it up. It’s quite bizarre. The first time it happened I was able to drive quick enough to call her out and she dropped me and my partners balls in the woods and threw her hands in the air as if we did something wrong. Management should figure this out.

Getting better

I can see greens are in very good conditions and bunkers actually have sands in them! Nice improvements. Next would be smoothing out cart path and work on fairways that has a lot of bald spots.

PLEASE!!!

Southland I want to love you so much. This golf course could be so much better but everytime I come there’s always some kind of issue. Today's issue was "first come first serve" as the starter put it, who was going to just ignore tee time bookings. I understand that you have your regulars but you can't be doing that....The greens and Fairways are in pretty good shape so all in all it's good place to play.
