The Club at Savannah Harbor is steeped in Southern charm, offering dramatic views that span from the surrounding wetlands of the Back River to Savannah's famous Historic District. Sam Snead and Bob Cupp designed the golf course. Their ultimate goal was to bring to life the philosophy of "risk and reward." For example, a well executed shot placed near a hazard is rewarded with less club to the green or a better approach angle, or even both. The putting surfaces have gentle transitions to different pin locations, making them more traditional than modern. The designers incorporated another classic design element, the greens have subtle roll-offs or collars that fall away, a feature of golf courses from the 1930s and 40s. Golfers can also use the club's large, duel-ended practice facility.

The day at Savannah Harbor was everything a golfer could ask for. Dan and Fred in the shop welcomed us like old friends and made the check in process a breeze. We went outside and Gerry and Lanny got us loaded up and directed us to the range which had unlimited balls and was in better shape than many other course fairways.

The course itself was a challenge but very fair if you play the right tees. The greens are very smooth and roll true overall the condition of the course was exceptional and the pace of play was quick(3:45 min). Great views of the city skyline and the huge ships on the river. Lots to see if you like animals and birds also, don't forget to watch for the alligators. There are a lot of them.

All in all this is a do not miss course if you have the opportunity to play here do it.

Very friendly staff, check in was quick and easy. Bar drinks and food were great (the BLT specifically). Staff is very knowledgable about the course and conditions in general. Alligators on this course are more for viewing fun than dangerous (just keep plenty of distance). Course is fun and beautiful. Fairways are like spongy trampolines, great play off of them. We will be back to play mostly because of the friendliness of the staff and secondly because the course was beautiful!

Always love playing this course as it is always in decent shape, but the price is a little high. When there are only a handful of people on the course that tell you something!Greens are always tricky with the undulations and slope! I play it every year when I come south at least once! Staff is very friendly and courteous! Pace is almost always around 3-3.25 hours!

The greens were pretty recently aerated so this no real point in keeping score since putts will bounce all over the place but otherwise the course was in great condition and beautiful.

Amazing course and facility. Superb course condition with true and fast greens. Layout will not disappoint as it has a variety of tight lies and open looks. It is lengthy so choose your tee box carefully. Ask about local resident rates (live within 100 miles)...$99.

This is a very well run club with a pristine club house, excellent staff, and great customer service. The course is very well maintained and you get the sense throughout the round that there is attention to detail regarding every aspect of your experience on and off the course. It is not, however, a great golf course and had I paid the rack rate to play I would have felt disappointed. It is a very large course, sitting on a sprawling parcel of land. While the fairways are moderately wide, there is ample room to recover from all but the worst of shots. The flat nature of the property and its proximity to marshland make for a somewhat one-dimensional course, with similar shots and strategy on a large number of holes. For the most part the holes are either straight forward with little to intimidate the player, or they abut wetlands/water and present a risk-reward approach; bail out or risk a lost ball.

We got an excellent price on Golf Now. They have 1 tee time per day which is at least half the price, so I grab it when I come. The clubhouse and staff is as good as it gets. We had breakfast before the round and it was excellent. Since we came early the starter was able to get us in about 2 hours before our schedule time ! The course is beautiful with lots of vistas. It is challenging and fun. It was a little wet from occasional rain but did not deter our round. Always play the tees that suit your game and it will be enjoyable.

Firstly and unknown to us at the time of booking there was a motor racing event at the old circuit next to the course. The noise was unbearable. The range was closed as a result and the promised range balls were obviously not forthcoming.

Secondly,there were 6 ridiculous pin positions, and I mean that if you missed a putt your next shot was a wedge.

Thirdly, if you missed the fairway by a yard or two the ball would sink into the semi rough and be very difficult to find.

Do they really think that these circumstances will encourage golfers to return,? Not in our case.

We visited here on an October day that tied a 100-year heat record with a heat index at 115. That is hotter than it gets in my part of Texas.

This golf course is on an island in the Savannah River. There are more aggressive mosquitos here than almost anywhere we have played.

This course is managed by Troon so all the employees here are first class. The pro shop was friendly as was the starter and Carrie in the grill.

We were using a good mosquito repellent but these bugs were not deterred. They attacked us through our clothing.

The course is flat with wide fairways. The greens are mostly very small, and narrow and were rolling about a ten. There are not a lot of

impressively designed holes or tricked up elevations here. What you see is what you get.

The wide fairways are an illusion. They have created a deep rough on both sides of the fairway that undulates and meanders. On one hole the draw will disappear and on the following hole, your fade is lost. The fairways are thick and slow with no roll.

There wasn't a lot of play today and our friendly starter allowed us to start at number 10. They named this hole Slamming Sammie in honor of Sam Snead, one of the course designers. Hole 10 is a short easy

dogleg right with bunkers in the front right. The nasty hole is #17. There is a huge lake in front of a narrow uphill green into the prevailing wind.

This course is more difficult with slow fairways and distracting mosquitos. They definitely need to start a mosquito abatement program

ASAP or hope for a very cold winter.

This is my 4th or 5th time playing the course. It’s always been in great shape. The club house is beautiful, the staff is very professional, the carts are upgraded with padded seating and GPS, the course was in great shape, the greens are almost perfect. Only issue I had was being attacked by mosquitos in the left side of hole 13 and 14. Other than that A+.
