Winter golf at it's best!!! The rates are extremely reasonable. I think I only paid 19 bucks for a senior riding! The greens were very challenging and undulating. The staff made me aware of the reconstructed sand bunkers. Those bunkers were the best i ever played! The maintenance crew was working really hard cutting down dead and unwanted trees. The layout was great and I had a very enjoyable experience! I heard South Hills is under new management? Well it definitely shows! The Pro Shop Staff was very nice and helpful. If you haven't been there, you need to check it out! Loved it!
I played west to south. The course was in decent shape (day after all the tornado warnings and heavy rain) the bunkers were 100% not playable needed a sand pro grooming.. Compacted and full of rocks. The greens looked good a few dollar spots here and there nothing major. They rolled pretty well. Teeboxes needed to be cut with a good amount of broadleaf weeds surrounding the boxes. I don't know who cut the cups on south. With one illegal placement on 5 the rest were tucked a few paces off the clean up cut (its weekend play) cups set too shallow.
Hated it, again.
It's March with beautiful warm weather and you would think there would be a little action to improve the conditions. Not much work being done.
Greens are getting green. Thick and bumpy. Still a few greens with holes in them.
Fairways are average. Lots of bare dirt areas.
Tee boxes need work. Full of broken tees. Markers have not been moved in a while.
There was work being done on the traps. They need work.
Staff is very nice.
This has not been a top shelf course for may years now. Needs attention and TLC.
I will remain optimistic. New season, new hope. This is a great layout.
Will check back later in the spring.
First, let me say I typically enjoy South Hills. However, we were extremely disappointed with the condition of the course. When paying a rate of $47, I would expect some grass with that price! The North is in terrible shape, and the South isn't much better. Tee boxes and fairways have very little grass--mostly just dirt. The greens are the best, but they also have patches of dirt. Clearly, the course has not held up well under the extreme heat temps in the Mid-Atlantic; however, other courses in the area have been able to maintain good conditions. I will go back, but it will be next year and in the Spring. The course is a good track, but not right now. The worse course I've played this year (and I've already played 45+ rounds this season).
I have played this course off and on for 20 years now and I still enjoy it. It's on the short side but fairly narrow on the north/south while more open on the west.Only complaint would be yardage markers, there isn't enough markers and some of them are conflicting with the scorecard and the tee signs.Overall a good deal for what you get,check it out if your nearby
It was extremly hot 100+ so i expected them to have many water jugs full but I only saw 1 jug on the course and only 1 out of the 2 soda machines took money. They had their club championship that day so the pin placements were especialy tough. Yardage markers were few and the tee boxes did not seem to match the yards on the score cards on some holes. It is a nice course with many challenging holes. I only saw a couple brown spots but with the heat wave we have had i expected it to be much worse.
Course is nice for $37 on a weekend. About one hour from B-more so not too bad. The West course is great a lot of water and a faux 17 @ Sawgrass hole. I was pleased with the course the rough was thick and the greens were great and fast.
This is a great 27 hole course including an island green. I have played about 5 times over the past 4 years and I have never really seen it get backed up even when it is busy. You will enjoy your round here and it is a bargin at $40 maybe less. Other then the course everthing else is ok. It is better to play on the weekend because during the week traffic sucks getting to the course with the one lane roads after you get off 795. During the week a 50 minute drive from Baltimore could take 90 minutes or more.
