Got a chance to knock one off the list today. Finally got out to SoHi a couple of years after moving here. Previous reviews cover the layout and design very well. The impressive clubhouse greets you as you pull into the valet area. Due to COVID practices, they aren't allowed to park your car so it's functioning as a bag drop area and then you self park. Hats must be removed and cell phones in pockets when you enter the clubhouse. The shop is small but well stocked. Met our caddy Jamie outside as we made our way to the double ended all grass range, warm up area, and putting green. All these areas are as you would expect from a high end private club. Service was awesome from start to finish.
Course conditions were a solid 9-10 all the way around. There was some work going on a couple of fairways where half the fairway was undergoing the process of Poa removal. No worries though, if your ball landed on the half under repair, the caddy would move the ball to the side that was unaffected. Turf conditions were outstanding for summer! Tees, rough, bunkers, were all perfect. Greens were holding shots and rolling true at medium fast speeds. Some pin placements today were diabolical and I couldn't imagine what they play like when they are up to tournament speeds in the spring and fall.
This course is a golf photographer's dream. Every single hole is a visual masterpiece! Hats off to Robert Trent Jones Sr. & Jr. for this stunning design. *Fun fact, Sr. designed 1-12 before sadly passing away, leaving Jr. to finish the last 6 holes. If you're ever invited to play here, make sure you clear your schedule and go play it! Now...who's got the connections for The Summit?» Close
