Great staff and caddy (Kirk) that makes you feel welcomed. It has become my favorite course in hhi area, which places a premium on the golfer's experience. Picturesque and challenging, truly unforgettable.

Really friendly atmosphere and great staff. Good comfort food with a great view of the 18th green, along with the occasional alligator crossing the fairway. Visited twice.

May Rive Golf Club is an expensive, yet welcoming golf club. The pro shop to the caddie were very nice. The course was in good shape with great views. Fairways were generous but the fairway bunkers could be penal if found. If you miss the green, better hope you miss it in the right spot because it's not a guaranteed... More

each hole felt very set apart from the rest...greens and fairways in excellent condition....those pot bunkers smack in the middle of the fairway were like magnets for my golf ball..made it very challenging

They do't like guests. They are pompous, owner oriented (fine) but they like the money guests bring in. Folks in the pro shop very difficult.

I was one of a group of 8 guys in town for vacation. We played golf and had lunch at several different courses during our stay. All in all we enjoyed ourselves at every place we played. May River is a fabulous golf course due to it's condition and challenging layout. As we are not members of this private club... More

I've been blessed to play many of the greatest private golf clubs in America as well as about half of the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play" and May River Golf Club absolutely deserves its spot on that list. The course is beautiful, fun, challenging, and in magnificent condition - in spite of the few inches of rain it received... More

Played in just under 4 hours, and let one quicker twosome play through. The course layout provides multiple tees so that any golfer can find a challenging but enjoyable experience. The staff... More
