$26 (cart included), played on Friday, September 2013 at 6am
Played Southbridge Golf Club 9-20-13 while in Savannah at a reunion. Started at 0745 and finished in 2.5 hours. Very few others playing at that time of day.
I paid $30, based on hotel concierege intervention, otherwise would have been $50, and honestly, the course is not worth $50.
Course is a Rees Jones design from 1989, and is showing its age. The course itself is in decent shape, but the clubhouse is getting a bit raggedy, with visibly rotted window frames, some missing glass, flaking paint, etc. The cart paths are an invitation to back injury: there are numerous root incursions, tilted concrete slabs, potholes and sizable gaps in pavement. Drivers, beware!
The greens were pretty good, with only a few burned spots, which is pretty good considering the local climate and the time of year. Most greens were moderately contoured and sloped, and all are pretty big. Fairways were good, but with some damp spots. All are generous in the landing area. Bunkers were excellent. Tee boxes for seniors, which I am, were not so good: all were crowned, both from side to side and front to back. It was hard to find a level spot. Layout goes through a sizable housing development, and in a few cases, the homes are quite close to the fairway: uncomfortably so if you're a slicer/hooker. There is also considerable distance between holes, such that I would not recommend walking for seniors or anyone with infirmities. For example, it's a three-minute cart ride at full speed from the clubhouse to the first tee!
Pro shop is modestly stocked with logo merchandise, but has the essentials.
Staff was excellent.
Overall, I liked the course...just needs some TLC and $$$.
