I always go back
Amazing course, superior condition, and prime staff. This is the second time I’ve left something at this course and the staff has always found it and held it for me. Top notch customer service!
Great staff and good condition
Staff was extremely friendly, course in good shape going into winter. Tough course but really enjoyed it. Will come back next season
The team takes pride in providing top notch service to their golfers. Always friendly staff, great course conditions, and pace of play.
Tough to Tame Sawmill
If I could putt these spacious FAST greens, I might be able to score & break 80. The wind is always an issue, but this day from south, so playing 2,3,8,12,15,17 with helping breeze..... I parred my nemesis Hallway Hole #12. The greens are so awesome, lots-of-break to even 4'-putts. They are so huge too, I applaud anyone who goes the round without a 3putt. I hit Driver well (9or10 fwys), and fairways are really nice too, cut just right to allow ball to perch up for clean shots. The sand bunkers are well kept........but as usual, score on Sawmill is dependent on putting & windy conditions.
We were impressed with the course conditions and obvious attention to detail since playing there two years ago. The greens were fast, and the fairways were perfect. We will definitely return!!
Great this year
This year one of the best. We play every year before visiting put in bay. The course was in great shape, pace was good, and the staff as always very friendly.
If it's a rainy day beware cause the course can hold some water but staff work to keep it playable. Just a great experience here.
Great layout great staff, Tom Fazio designed
Refund or credit
Only got to play front nine was terrible because excessive watering and greens full of sand since back nine was closed had to play front nine again. Please credit my account $20
When I got there they did not tell me the front 9 had just been aereated and filled with sand. The Greens were terrible. They also forgot to tell me that the back 9 was closed. I am not happy about this and think you should credit my account!

Fairways and greens perfect condition on back nine which we played twice since front 9 was being aerating .
Long par 4's were fun.
Sawmill in Great Condition
Sawmill has some of the largest greens I have ever played, and this day had some wicked pin-placements. I have to make an excuse for a horrible day of putting, but some holes were cut on hills & slopes of these expansive greens. Greens are fast, but held incoming shots nicely; the fairways are cut nice, but the rough is very penal --thick & long grass (to the point you could lose a ball within a yard off fairway). I think those challenges added to the slow play of groups ahead ........plus there was some cutting as our group made the turn; no starter late in the day, and after a morning Outing. Drainage & sideboards have helped the Hallway Hole #12, which is still a Par6 for us old guys. Thanx to GolfNow for the Hot Deals special pricing, and I shall return, gotta redeem myself after poor putting & scores.
