Savannah, GA area courses

13 posts in this topic

My wife and I are going to Tybee Island the week after Memorial Day and I want to get in a couple of rounds while I'm there. I think I want to play The Club at Savannah Harbor but are open to suggestions. I'll be playing as a single, if that make a difference.

Thanks in advance

Bloody Point on Daufuskie Island just reopened, and Melrose looks like a good course. You have to take a boat, but Daufuskie is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. This is the kind of place you could take your wife along, and she would enjoy the beauty of the island.

I checked out Bloody Point and that looks really cool. Am I reading it correct in that when you make a tee time they will give you water taxi information? And is the water taxi service included in the green fees?

I don't know the answer to your question, but I have been at Hilton Head when Melrose was running specials that included the boat ride. Bloody Point was closed when we were there, and it looked like the "before" pictures on the website. If you go, leave time to rent a golf cart, and explore the island.

One more thing: this is around the time of year courses in this area start to aerify bermuda greens. Be sure to call ahead.

When I played there some years ago the ferry ride was included in the green fee. It was an awesome experience because we felt like we owned the course because we didn't see anyone else on the course while we were playing.  The boat goes right by Harbour Town also so you can see the famous light tower also.  There are so many good courses in that area.

I called and made my tee time at Bloody Point today. Green fee is $50 and the boat service is $49, so, a hundred bucks is reasonable. If my wife tags along it will another $49 for her boat ride and $47 for a cart rental so she can tour the island while I play. All and all pretty reasonable. Can't wait. I think I'll play my other round at The Club at Savannah harbor, should be in great shape after just hosting the senior tour event.

I didn't ask, but their grand opening is the weekend before Memorial Day and I would hope they would have that done with time to heal before the big event. I'm playing the Wednesday after.

Played The Club at Savannah Harbor today, course was in great shape. Super fast green and whoever set the pins today was evil. Several of the greens have false backs, it that makes sense, the green slopes back to front but like a false front, the back ~15' of green falls off. Several of the pins were cut just of top of the fall off. Overall a pretty good day, 3 birdies, but 3 lost balls. Played much better on the back when I kept the drivers the bag and played more position. Ended up playing with the general manager of the Westin Resort and one of his pals, so he did give a few pointers on lines off the tee. He is also a member at Bloody Point and said it was playing very nice, can't wait til Wednesday.

Played Bloody Point yesterday morning. I had made the first tee time and after the boat ride arrived at the course about 45 min before my start time, but sinece I was the only one there and no other golfers were booked to start for almost 2 hours, I warmed up and had the place to myself. Although the course itself has been there sometime, it wasnt too long ago the the course was grown up with weeds/brush 3-4 feet tall. The re-design of the course kept the basic layout but did change some of the features, removed some traps, added some mounds, etc. I really enjoyed the layout on the course, with the large overhanging trees with Spanish moss makes some nice looking holes. The course does play like a new course now, they just had their grand opening this past weekend, the fairways and greens need some time to grow in, but played very nice. The greens were playing at about 8-81/2 and rolled good but the speed was a far cry from what I had played on Monday that I would guess was in the 12 range. I finished my round by 11 and the return boat back to savannah didnt leave until 2, so I grabbed some lunch and then played another 9 holes. After finishing that 9 I still had about an hour to kill,so I walked down the the beach kicked off my shoes and relaxed. I did see a shark when I arrived at the pier, and saw a couple of gators on the course, one that was about 12-15 foot long, but he disappeared under the water before I could get to the cart to get my camera. I'll post some photos when I get home.

It looks nice. Like I said earlier, when we saw it, it was closed and barley maintained. You could tell where the greens and bunkers were, and they were mowing occasionally. As a graduate of the turf school at NC State, it was hard to see such a scenic piece of property going to waste. I'm glad it has come back, and I'm glad you enjoyed it. It will be at the top of my list the next time I get back to Hilton Head.

    • A figment of Bill Kristol's imagination.
    • LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily.   Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."
    • Entered the last week of the regular season on Monday.  It was also Senior Night.  Typically, it is a great night for us and did end good.  However, it was a rough start.  One of my seniors was pulled over driving to our course and had 3 other players in her car.  While she was given a warning, they got to our course late and so, were rushed to get dressed and on the course.  Naturally, she was shaken up.  My #1 was again medalist but we shot the worst score we have shot on they year.  We shot a 215 and that is terrible.  We lost to both opponents we played that night and have beaten both by 20 this year.  Today was our conference tournament.  It is held at a very tough course for girls, has a lot of sand and water and trees.  My #4 who is really my #3 but I defer to an older girl at #3 could not play since she was rushed to the emergency room.  She is very sick.  Anyway, my #1 shot a 77 on a windy cold day and was Medalist.  She out shot the next competitor by 11 strokes.  Her round was one of the most amazing rounds I've seen.  Our conference is very competitive in girl's golf and yet, the #1s from all the other teams could not keep up with her.  My #2 was also All Conference.  From there, we were terrible but in line with the other girls.  Still, when you are missing the young lady that has been averaging 94 per 18 holes, you are not going to win.  We didn't.  Regional Tournament next.  It is on our home course BUT we never get to play those holes.  We have 27 Holes and so, never are allowed on the first 18 due to league play.  I am hoping we get to play those holes now in practice since league is over.  Finally, Senior Night is a celebration of our Seniors.  The other girls bought them some very nice gifts.  It was also my birthday.  They got me an extremely nice Triad Golf Jacket.  I needed it today since we were in the mid 60s with a very hard wind.  I am so blessed to get to be their coach. 
    • Wow! Hillary only got 2% on my quiz.  I knew I didnt like her, but I didnt think it was that bad.
    • I tried to find the debate, but all I could find on was some new reality show called "The Biggest Liar", where two people went after each other as hard as they could for 90 minutes.  When it was over, there was no clear winner, and the only loser was the American people.   I took the quiz, I side with Evan McMullin...........who the hell is Evan McMullin?????
