“Laid Back Excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Such a wonderful setting and a tremendous golf course I am told. I am not a golfer, however I have been on the property several times for several tournaments/special events. The staff is welcoming and pleasing. The club is top notch yet without all the pretense. The level of service is superior to many others. Kind of reminds me of a "Ritz Carlton" of the golf clubs.

It's hard to begin with what a great place this is. Golf course: tough for any level of play but fair for all levels. What sets this place apart from any golf club I've been to is the level of service. Service is second to none. Every single employee of this GC makes it a memorable experience. The food in the clubhouse is excellent. If you get the chance... get to Old Memorial Golf Club and you might never want to leave.

“Bring your A game and an Appetite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is an amazing national golf club with both national (75%) and local (25%) members. The pampering begins at the airport when OM sends a driver to take you to the club. You are then delivered to your hosing on course. Condo style town houses with golf decorations. 4 separate bedrooms each with 2 beds and a private bathroom. A large living room with HD TV, a card table, a kitchen, a bar (stocked), and snacks.
Fabulous clubhouse with a superb dining area and a cigar room and a fire pit in the back. Three meals a day. All are wonderful. Chef will talk to you during the day to plan dinner (lamb shank, stone crabs, WOW!) a wonderful locker area, fully equipped and a hot tub/jacuzzi.
On to the course. Nice practice area. caddies, experienced, helpful, $80-100 per bag.

Visually intimidating from several tee boxes. Bunkers EVERYWHERE! One has a huge landing area but the Swales and landing areas are difficult. Two is long and narrow. Three is a nice par 5. 4 is a tough three over water. Five is very tough a dogleg left protected by water and bunkers with good length. Many, many memorable holes but your handicap will climb!
A fabulous experience. If invited.....GO!

“Great golf experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The pro at our club made arrangements for a group of us to play Old Memorial. What a great day!
Fabulous course and a great staff. We all had our own caddies and it was very helpful. The greens were tricky and they told us where to aim off of the tees (we weren't always successful).

All in all a great club and a great day!

“Excellent track with nice facilities”

Tough sand traps so just stay out of them. Very nice course and not advertised to the world until now apparantly.
